Amidst the global recession making all the news headlines since the start of 2009, the past week saw a furor of news reports on shamed Hong Kong star, Edison Chen (陈冠希)‘s visit to Singapore, vying for prime news spaces.

Edison, notorious for his sex photos scandal was in town last Friday to attend a Carl’s Jr event. On top of that, he also graced another two events, organised by Adidas and Bang & Olufsen.

Rachel attended all of them, covering the story for my paper. She managed to take some photos at the events, but did not manage to get a picture of Edison as it was too chaotic, with hounds of journalists and members of public, chasing Edison, everywhere he goes.

The Edison Chen sex photos scandal took place two years ago, yet it refuses to take a backseat from the media limelight. Scary sia… the Chinese entertainment scene really treat sex scandals like this very seriously. I was quite stunned when I saw live news feed on Edison Chen’s whereabouts on the various Taiwanese tabloid news channel available on SCV. They actually deployed news crew to follow him all the way from Vancouver to Singapore! Gosh!
