Life (20/03/2000)-- TV Star Says I Like At Dawn, I Do: On Monday, March 27, TCS 8 actor-comedian Chew Chor Meng, 32, will be getting ready at 6 am for his wedding with Deon Tan,25. A lookalike London taxi will pick up his bride-to-be at that hour for the Teochew ceremony. It is normal for a traditional Chinese couple to choose an auspicious time and date for the wedding. This Teochew couple, though, had a different reason for choosing 6 am. Put simply by the TCS star:"Because I like it." He adds that it is customary for Teochews to start early but the main reason was that he liked the time. As for the choice of the London taxi, he explained:"Because I like it." The wedding banquet will be held at the Merchant Court Hotel on the smae night for 300 people. The banquet hall will be decorated in a retro 1960s style. Why the 1960s? Once again:"Because I like." The former Star Search winner weds the marketing manager after 5 years of courtship. One wonders what he will say if asked why he chose Deon Tan... (The above is the full-report found on the last page with a photograph of he and his wife-to-be Deon Tan. So sweet... Hereby, I wish Chor Meng and his wife a blissful marriage and may they live happily ever after!!!)

Prediction for the Year 1999 --> Luck: This year's a turning point for CCM in his acting career... In the new year, he will have a high screen profile and most of the things will go according to his wishes... He will gain attention from the commercial sector, that is, receive quite a number of advertisement deals; Career: He will receive a blessing in his career and he better grab hold of it to push his acting career to a higher plane; Wealth: Lady Luck will be shining on him and he must take this opportunity, which will be able to change his financial status. He can invest in business but it better not be too heavy an investment, or he will be on the losing end... What he has chosen to do for the time being is good for him; Health: Will be mentally and physically strained, so take all the time he can to rest, and his old ailment might be back again...

President's Star Charity--> CCM will be facing the challenges of speed and memory and 'fighting' against Li Guo Huang and Gurmit single-handedly. LGH and Gurmit will be presenting "Tuo1 Kou3 Xiu4" during the show... CCM will be taking on 3 roles in "Wo3 Jia1 Wo3 Deng3 Yu2 Wo3"-- his presnt self, his previous self in 'The Witty Advisor' and his future self in 'Immortal Love'. He will be using high technology to time travel through the respective phases, teasing himself as he goes along. But the hardest is yet to be... He will need to change his clothes within 10 seconds, remember where he should stand and his dialogues. His rehearsal spans over 14 days, giving him a great deal of pressure, not forgeting that his presentation will be one of the most difficult during the event...

Singapore Star Search--> CCM will be hosting the event with Diana Ser, Jacelyn Tay and Guo Liang.. Remember to tune in to the event!
