Charlene Choi wants gift of privacy

15 Feb – Singer-actress Charlene Choi wants nothing else but to be given the freedom to enjoy her time with her loved one on Valentine's Day in privacy.

According to Groove Asia website, the actress, who is currently dating "Triad" actor, William Chan, stated, "My requirement for Valentine's Day is very simple. I only wish to have a good partner I love by my side. Anything else does not matter."

The actress stated, "I will be happy and content to just have a meal or watch a romantic movie together with my loved one on Valentine's Day."

Stating that it is rare to have Valentine's Day fall on the fifth day of the Chinese New Year, the actress revealed that she is celebrating both festivities overseas with her boyfriend, stating, "I just hope that the media will be generous and give us a break, that they will not follow us and let us enjoy a free and relaxed Valentine's Day. Furthermore, this is my first time spending Valentine's Day abroad with my other half."

Asked about her Year of the Snake resolution, the actress hopes for her career to continue charging forward with the right approach, saving effort and leading to better results.

The "My Wife is 18" star stated, "My biggest wish is to film a movie that is completely different from any genre or character I have played before. However, working in this industry for so many years, I will not be too concerned. Instead, I have a lot of faith in my career. These days, I have learned to be satisfied because plans will never be able to catch up to changes. It is best to work with a happy attitude and continue to equip myself."

    April 21: GM assembles its 100 millionth U.S.-built car on this date in 1967

    Few companies ever reach the dominance that General Motors held on this date in 1967 when it marked the 100 millionth car it had built in the United States at the Janesville, Wis., plant. That year, GM employed some 740,000 people, and was not just the largest automaker in the world but the largest company period. Its market share of the U.S. auto industry was more than 50 percent. Today, the blue Chevy Caprice coupe resides in GM's museum in Flint, Mich.; and while GM still ranks among the world's largest automakers, 1967 was a peak of sorts. Had GM's profits kept pace with inflation since then, it would have made $13 billion last year instead of $3 billion — although its hard to top the year Chevy introduced the Camaro:

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
