Miss Hong Kong
Hong Kong
start[edit] Wong entered the Miss Hong Kong
Hong Kong
Pageant in 1994 while studying business in college. From the start she was deemed a favourite by the Hong Kong
Hong Kong
media, and she nabbed the Miss Photogenic award early on in the semi-finals. However, due to her average performance in the finals, she lost her bid for the crown to winner Halina Tam 譚小環, first runner-up Annamarie Wood 活麗明, and second runner-up Theresa Lee 李綺紅, placing in the top five. Career[edit] Due to her popularity during the contest, TVB
quickly signed with her and cast her as one of the leading female roles in the sitcom Happy Harmony (餐餐有宋家), which aired from October 1994 to March 1995. With below average acting talent, she went on to play second female leads in subsequent TVB
dramas. In 1998, Wong was sent to host the long-running infotainment show, K-100. Because of the hosting duties, she was not able to take on any acting roles while she hosted. Due to the lack of exposure of TVB dramas during this time, her popularity quickly decreased. Upon completing her duties on K-100 in 2000, she filmed Prison On Fire - Plaintive Destiny 監獄風雲之夜囚 as the female lead and continued to take roles in TVB
dramas. However, the roles offered to her were mostly minor ones. Only until 2006 have roles for Wong been greater in value, with her most recent being a major supporting role in To Grow with Love (肥田囍事) alongside Myolie Wu and Andy Hui. Because of the hosting exposure from K-100, Wong is regularly assigned to emcee live events and galas. In 2011, she declined to renew her contract with TVB, instead choosing to fully focus on her engagements in the beauty and cosmetics sector. Nonetheless, Wong parted with TVB
on good terms and has stated that she would consider filming again if the script is good. Currently, she makes public appearances around Asia and participates in GVG HK promotional events. Middle Chinese character[edit]

The Chinese character, "𨥈"

The middle character, 𨥈, is an old Chinese scripture meaning royalty and is not readily available in most Chinese typing software. In fact, the character was only recently available as an add-on to the Unicode
software Extension-B package. Therefore, a lot of media has just used the character "紀" (which has the same pronunciation) or incorrectly use a similar looking character "釲" (which is pronounced differently) in place of the original character. Selected filmography[edit] Television[edit]
