Joe Ma’s (馬德鐘) wife, Cheung Siu Lan (張筱蘭) releases her new book and disclosed Joe was a heavy drinker in the past. He explained he used to own a restaurant and need to drink so as to entertain the customers: “I realise the importance of health after witnessing my father suffered from a stroke 2 years ago and my mother and mother-in-law’s health start to become poor. Hence, I quit drinking and smoking which cause a misunderstanding.”

Joe expressed he paid the expenses for the hard copies of his wife’s new book and Siu Lan felt emotional upon seeing the release. As her granny and mother passed away while preparing for the book in 2018, she felt grateful to complete it because of her husband’s support. Siu Lan said: “My grandmother passed away in January 2019 and today marks 100th day after my mother’s death. Hence, I feel quite emotional and understand life and death when growing older. The main purpose of the book is to highlight the importance of health.” Their son, Ma Xiang (馬在驤) and maid also became vegetarians because of their influences.”

When mentioned about the debt collectors uploaded a duplicate copy of renowned TV Producer Gary Tang’s (鄧特希) identification details and many copies were pasted outside TV City at Tseung Kwan O, Joe replied it had been 8 to 10 years since both kept in contact after The File of Justice III (壹號皇庭III) drama and bumping into each other in Mainland China: “I am unsure and hope he will be fine.”
