    Ekin Cheng contemplates split with Yoyo Mung over her gambling ways

    HONG KONG: Hong Kong singer-actor Ekin Cheng's recent return to the music industry after years of semi-retirement took many by surprise. But what is even more shocking is the reason behind his comeback - he is going broke.

    According to a Hong Kong magazine, Chengís actress girlfriend Yoyo Mung's compulsive gambling and her penchant for high-risk investments had almost wiped out his savings during the recent economic downturn.

    And this is also threatening to break up the couple of three years.

    According to media reports, Mung who was recently in Macau to shoot a television drama series, could not keep away from the casino.

    While waiting to shoot her scenes, she would go try her luck at the tables, starting with $10 bets then slowing raising her stakes as she lost.

    The actress was so caught up in the action that she refused to leave when it was her turn to shoot her scenes. And when she eventually did, she dropped what she was doing and made her way back to the casino after hearing that fellow actress Fala Chan had made a windfall.

    The 34-year-old actress is also a mahjong fan and would often indulge in long mahjong sessions with her friends, sometimes playing late into the night.

    It proved to be the final straw for Cheng who in a huff, told Mung to move out of their new apartment.

    To appease Cheng, Mung accompanied him on a vacation to Okinawa, Japan, and even promised to quit gambling.

    However despite her apologies, Cheng was wary of her gambling habit and their frosty relationship did not improve after their trip.

    According to Cheng's close friends, a break-up was on the cards long ago and they feel sorry for him, "Ekin has mentioned several times that he thought of breaking up with Yoyo. However, Yoyo was so persistent and even swore that she would quit gambling and mahjong. Ekin tends to be more hesitant and that is why they are still in the relationship."

    Even though there hasn't been any clarification from either party, the couple have dropped subtle hints about their rocky relationship.

    On his sudden comeback, Cheng said that the time was right, adding that he had never mentioned plans to retire. He also shot down marriage rumours, saying he has no intention of settling down just yet.

    Mung also threw the marriage equation out of the window when asked about her future with Cheng.

    "I'm not in a hurry at the moment. My career comes first. Furthermore, Ekin is afraid of all the trouble so we do not have plans to get married in the near future," she said. - CNA/fa

    I thought the thread title was going to say "Ekin Cheng contemplates split with Yoyo Mung after meeting a younger woman."

    Ah~ You gotta love those crazy hot chicks. LOL.

    Her problem isn't her gambling, it's that she sucks at gambling. Gambling against the house is idiotic, but gambling against other people isn't, PROVIDED you are smart. If you are a bad gambler, do not gamble. Then again, if all the dummies don't gamble, then the good gamblers won't make any money.

    I play mahjong myself. I usually win and I don't play huge stakes (Only one losing session so far) It's not a bad habit provided you have self control and win.
    What are you fighting for? Just mix them into pissing beef balls, stupid.

    I heard that they dated for years now and heard about marriage rumours. It is sad if Yoyo has gambling problems. People are divorcing so much now so I am not shocked at all about dating couples breaking up.... It is normal...
    Respect other people's opinions and views. If we learn how to do that than all of these fights and arguments will not occur.

    Gamling is very destructive. Countless lives has been destroyed in many different ways. The good thing about Ekin and Yoyo case is there is no children involved.

    They seem like a pretty dumb couple based on the story. Good thing they didn't reproduce.
    Because I'm somewhere in between,
    My love and my agony.

    The act of gambling is not the problem, the root of the problem is the people who do the gambling. Business is gambling. The stock market is gambling. Asking a girl out is gambling. Life itself is full of gambles. Just as poker or any other games can be used for gambling.

    People who become compulsive gamblers have no self control, and would likely be addicted to one thing or another anyway. The key to gambling is to pick favorable situations, play against weaker opponents, and very importantly, moderation.

    I gamble. But I gamble low stakes, gamble intelligently, and never gamble against the house. Therefore, on a net basis, I am well ahead. If I lose control or do not know what I am doing when I gamble, Iíd be losing money too.

    I do not advocate gambling for all. Not too smart people, overly emotional people, and people who are easily swayed by others should not gamble because they will lose big over the long run. However, my point is that gambling per se isnít the problem. The problem is that this Ekinís gf is a moron.

    Perhap your theory is right, but most gamblers aren't that intelligent to begin with, so therefore most of them have problems.

    The problem is that this Ekinís gf is a moron.
    Perhap she is a moron but she is pretty hot though.

    Which reinforces his point. Gambling itself is not the problem. The people who gamble wrecklessly are the ones that have problems.

    Three years dating, a 34 y.o woman with gambling issue?

    Time for an upgrade to a new younger model with less baggage. Just stop being a pvssy and do it already, Ekin.

    It's not about IQ, it's EQ. She ain't that disciplined enough to hold herself back from eating dirt yet surrender to the foul routine and happily making it her 2nd profession while ignoring all consequences.

    Perhap she is a moron but she is pretty hot though.
