When asked about the limit for helping the friends in TVB show, Young and Restless (後生仔傾吓偈) earlier, Louisa Mak (麥明詩) replied she lent $1 million to her friend for helping his business. Asking about the time of the incident during the press conference of Community Chest Charity Show (明愛暖萬心) on 19th June 2019, Louisa said: “Around 1 to 2 years ago. I do not have much money in the past. (Happen after joining the show business?) Yes. The opposite party has returned the money to me. (An emergency?) Yes. (Charge him interest?) Nope but he suggested though. It is very hard to know the stock market well and I am clueless when having too much cash. It is good that we can help each other but others do not need to borrow money from me, as I do not have any extra cash.”

Louisa added they knew each other for many years and her friend returned the money to her within 6 months. She believed her friend would try to return the money even if facing bankruptcy. Checking if it was a male friend, Louisa said: “Yes, we know each other for 6 to 7 years. (Did he try to woo you?) He will not ask me for money if interested to woo me. He can offer himself to me if fails to return the money. (Is he single?) I think he is single now. Anyway, it is impossible between us as we know each other for too long.”

Lastly, Louisa was not worried about others borrowing money from her after the news was released and she could charge interest which was better than putting it inside the bank: “As a lawyer, I need to protect myself and prepare a loan agreement. (What is the contents?) I get my friend who is also a lawyer to draft the agreement for me and can apply for bankruptcy on behalf of him.”
