26 May – There is a lot that one can learn from one's partner about life, and according to Roxanne Tong, she learns from boyfriend Kenneth Ma to not focus on getting the approval of others via awards.
As reported on Mingpao, the TVB actress, who sat down for an interview recently, admitted that she used to pressure herself when she first joined the entertainment industry.
"I used to want to win awards... there was a time when I really wanted to win the Most Improved Artiste award. But I found that I could not control whether or not I can win it," she said.
However, since dating Kenneth, Roxanne said that she became influenced by the actor's more laidback personality.
"He really inspired me because his work attitude exceeds the awards. He is really satisfied when he does what he should do and what he feels right. He has more than enough to live on, and he doesn't think awards can define his efforts. Those are just a bonus, and he won't feel more successful with it," she said.
When asked if the two of them have any plans to tie the knot now that they have been dating for two years, Roxanne said that other people are more interested on seeing them get married than their own families.
"We've discussed this. He really wants to buy a house before we get married and we are not in a hurry," she added.
