50 years old Joe Ma (馬德鐘) had rumours with Sonija Kwok (郭羨妮), Michelle Ye (葉璇) and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) when working in TVB previously. Benny Chan (陳浩民) and he were involved in “taking advantage” of Rose Chan (陳嘉桓) incident as well. At the time, Joe loved to go to pub frequently and was taken photographs of behaving intimately with the girls. His wife, Cheung Siu Lan (張筱籣) almost left him and fortunately, he managed to regain her trust. They were together for more than 30 years and Siu Lan said before: “I reckon he is the best person to understand my character and temper.”
In 2012, Joe lived in a flat at Sai Kung Town and his wife bought a detached house in Tuen Mun subsequently, and spent huge amount on renovations. As Siu Lan believed in buddhism and fengshui, she decided to create a secret fengshui formation in order to reduce Joe’s rumours. One of her friends said: “Before the renovation, Karen (張筱籣) approached a master and the outer wall was painted in yellow colour. It is a brilliant formation created by the master and she put in full efforts to cultivate Joe’s interest in buddhism and get him to become vegetarian.”
In addition, Siu Lan established her position in social networking world and used her connection to get Joe to participate in public events. Joe is the ambassador of Hong Kong Adventist Hospital (港安醫院), Yan Oi Tong (仁愛堂) and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (愛護動物協會) and others.
It looks like Siu Lan’s efforts are paid off and Joe has almost zero gossips in recent years. They remain a loving couple and go for holidays together frequently.
