汪詩詩子女得真傳

January 7, 2010
汪詩詩、馬詩慧(Janet)和歐陽妙芝三位靚媽咪,昨日帶同子女一起出席港安醫院慈善基金活動,即場創作聖誕曲奇。汪詩詩的囡囡Jasmine戴了眼鏡,詩詩表示囡囡有百多度近視:「佢咁細個就有近視,應該係遺傳,因為我同子丹都有近視。我帶佢去配眼鏡時佢好開心,但我就唔開心。囡囡都好貪靚,有時影相都會除眼鏡。」

詩詩又笑言囝囝James好像有功夫底似的,經常拿起公公的拐杖揮舞,不知是否老公甄子丹遺傳,至於是否因囝囝看得爹哋的戲太多?她說:「我唔畀佢睇啲暴力嘢,淨係睇卡通片。」講到今個聖誕,老公要在大陸拍戲,她和一對仔女則會留在香港過節。

另外,對於近日有o靚模被控藏毒一事,Janet亦贊成實行校園驗毒計劃。

贊成全港校本驗毒 馬詩慧:Monique應入戒毒所

January 7, 2010
(星島日報報道)靚模周凱盈(Monique)在校內藏有毒品,出庭前還被驗出仍有吸毒,身為名模的馬詩慧(Janet)認為要盡快判對方入戒毒所,而她亦讚成校園強制驗毒。
昨日Janet帶同兒子出席港安醫院慈善基金的活動,提到有o靚模Monique吸毒,她說:「法庭話她再吸毒才可能會被判入戒毒所。仲等下次?最好立即戒毒,毒癮更難戒。」她謂一直都留意女兒在學校的情況,亦很支持強制驗毒,「有時家長真的不知道子女吸毒,本身如果沒有吸毒,怎會怕驗毒?」她認為校園驗毒是對社會好,但要有適當的配套解決私穩問題。
汪詩詩與女兒 Jasmine出席,戴了眼鏡的Jasmine十分可愛,詩詩謂她與老公甄子丹有近視,相信女兒是遺傳,她說:「最初配眼鏡時她好開心,後來覺得不漂亮,影相要除眼鏡!」她謂兒子亦遺傳了爸爸喜歡打\夫的興趣,不時會拿着木棍舞來舞去!她透露甄子丹會回港出席首映,而她已預備了驚喜的聖誕禮物。

Planet Yoga’s Master Naveen shares his experience in Hong Kong.

January 7, 2010


Master Naveen is the leading instructor at Planet Yoga central, Hong Kong. With seven years of practice and experience and a solid knowledge of yoga concepts, Naveen has a huge, loyal following at the centre.

How did you decide to come to Hong Kong and teach Yoga?

A couple of years ago, before all the other centres opened in Hong Kong, Planet Yoga was the only big studio. It is renowned in India that, all the experienced Yoga instructors would come here, if they wanted to be in Hong Kong. In fact, most of the directors of big yoga centres in Hong Kong now started at Planet Yoga.

That’s very interesting. Not a lot of people would know that. What lead you to become a yoga instructor?

Yoga is intricately tied into religious practices in India. As a child I was always involved in praying, performing rituals and meditation.

In my senior year in high school, my sister suddenly passed away. My whole family was devastated. Our family doctor saw how the tragedy had affected my father’s health and suggested a yoga retreat for him to go to. After my dad came back from the retreat he was a renewed man.

I watched him practice at home and I started doing yoga with him. It was our way to bond as father and son. Through yoga we healed from the sadness together. After that, I started studying yoga in University and have not stopped practicing ever since.

We are sorry to hear that, but it seems that you now practice what you preach because yoga has actually been life changing for you. You have worked in Planet Yoga for a while, do you see a change in the clientele or what their needs are?

A couple of years ago, most people came to Planet Yoga to exercise and have a good workout. Now I think that the focus has shifted and there is a new interest in meditation, detox, and yoga as a lifestyle. Kapil and I host information sessions (offered nowhere else in Hong Kong) every week and many of our members come in to listen and talk about the concepts of yoga.

Finally, what does Real Yoga mean to you?

Real yoga is internalizing and engaging all five aspects of yoga, the physical, mental, emotional, social and the spiritual.

Namaste
