Earlier, former Ms Hong Kong Lisa Marie Tse (謝嘉怡) and Luk Ho Ming (陸浩明) recorded a video together. When discussed about the favourite questions during new year greeting, Ho Ming pointed it was job and salary and Lisa nodded her head and said: “Yes, my granny keeps asking about my financial status in Hong Kong. I used to have a stable income in Scotland and she is worried about me feeling cold and falling into a love scam.” She also revealed her wages in England upon Ho Ming’s persistent questionings.
Lisa disclosed her starting salary was HKD$26,000 as a nurse in England and her daily expenses and rental were much cheaper when compared to Hong Kong. She said: “It is around $4,000 every month when buying a house and $2,000 for driving a car. (Is $6,000 your monthly expenses?) Yes. The nurses earn higher salary in England and we have less expenses. (What is your income in TVB?) It is not fixed every month. (What is your lowest income?) It is very little including my base salary.” Lisa added she hoped to earn as high income as Mariam Maria Cordero Bibi (肥媽) in the future and Ho Ming pointed her monthly income consisted of 10 digits.
