Sonja's mom clingy ways unhealthy?

Sonja Kwok and Amy Chan were the special guests at a jewellery shop’s opening of a branch yesterday. Amy was wearing a jewellery set worth $800K, while Sonja showed up with jewels worth $500K. The two also turned up in low-necked dresses, and were unafraid of snatching each other’s limelight as they had their own unique beauty.

Earlier, Sonja had accompanied her mother on a holiday to Thailand, and were snapped by the paparazzi while swimming. Resigned to her fate, Sonja said, “It can’t be helped. It was a public place anyway, and I am a public personality, so everywhere I go, I get snapped by photographers. (Will you not wear a bikini because of this should you go swimming?) No. I feel healthy, and that’s the most important thing.” Regarding allegations that she had flirted with male swimmers at a swimming pool, Sonja replied matter-of-factly. “Tabloids are forever writing stuff like this. Actually, these rumours aren’t that bad.” However, Sonja’s mom was quite upset about being snapped in her swimsuit at her age.

Sonja’s mom has not left her side since Sonja’s break-up with Derick Wan. When asked if her mom’s presence would deter future suitors from wooing her, Sonja replied that she quite enjoyed her mom’s company, and was not in a hurry to start another relationship.

Amy had to rush back to Shenzhen for her filming, in which she is acting as Anita Mui. For her role, she had specially gone on a diet to lose weight.
