Edison Chen: I've found true love

Edison Chen has found his true love?

According to May Daily, the 31-year-old playboy recently was spotted roaming on Hong Kong streets with his new Taiwanese-Korean lover Angela Meng while whispering and smiling at each other.

Angela Meng, 22, was said to have just returned from studying abroad, and quickly fallen prey to Edison as she worked at his Taipei JUICE store in this July. She doesn’t even know about the playboy’s past, revealed by source close to the girl.

But Edison Chen assured that he is serious about the relationship this time.

“I’ve found true love,” he said to the public.

The pair have been reported spending vacation in the US for a month too, though they claimed they were just on a business trip.

Chen Guangbiao is selling cans of air

Chinese high-profile philanthropist and entrepreneur Chen Guangbiao has caused controversy again, after he began to sell canned fresh air which was only seen in fiction before.

Chen claimed that the air is collected from low-pollution areas, such as Qinghai, Sichuan, Yunnan and Tibet in southwest and northwest China, and the collecting process is simple with his invented can where a chip is placed inside to read the air quantity and trigger the can to close itself automatically when the negative oxygen ions swung into the can reach a certain concentration.

Chen registered a named for his products, called “Good Person Chen Guangbiao,” and sell each can at 4 to 5 yuan.

Chen boasted that each can of fresh air his company collected is equivalent to 5 oxygen tanks commonly seen in the hospital, and inhaling it is good for people’s health. He also added that the business is to arouse public awareness on environmental protection, and he will donate part of earnings to the Chinese military to defend the Diaoyu Islands! (Chen Guangbiao ever put up an ad on NYTimes to assert China's claim to Diaoyu Islands.)

But the move received negative feedback online. Many netizens criticized it another publicity stunt Chen planned, and questioned Chen’s right to sell air.

Besides, no one can ensure that the air was collected from the areas Chen claimed.
