In a heartwarming encounter, Ray Lui met an elderly resident in a nursing home whom he respectfully addressed as “uncle”, which seemed like a reasonable assumption to make, given Ray’s youthful appearance compared to the man.

The video revealed that the encounter took place two years ago in 2021 when Ray was 64 years old. However, when they exchanged a handshake, it turned out that the elderly “uncle” was actually 62 years old, making him two years younger than Ray.

This juxtaposition left many netizens, including us, amazed, with many commenting on how Ray seemed more like the uncle’s younger brother.

While this may seem like a work of magic, Ray Lui himself has actually shared some of his secrets to maintaining his youthful look.

In addition to maintaining a healthy diet, he incorporates regular exercise into his routine, and to prevent potbelly, he recommends wall-sitting (shown in the image above, on the right), which is a simple yet effective exercise that involves holding a seated position against a wall, targeting the glutes, quads, and hamstrings.

It’s certainly refreshing to see a celebrity recommending a workout that requires no expensive equipment, and all you need is a vertical wall!

With her glowing skin and fashionable appearance, Hong Kong star Angie Chiu looks like a young actress at the height of her career, and it seems like the former Miss Hong Kong runner-up has reached a stalling point in the ageing process.

During a heartwarming visit to an old folk’s home, Angie met an elderly lady and embarked on a walk together. Little did she know that the lady was actually three years her junior, which came as a surprise to both Angie and the onlookers.

Angie Chiu has shared her beauty tips in various interviews, and it’s apparent that her radiant appearance is a result of consistent lifestyle choices, such as prioritising eight to ten hours of sleep each night.

When it comes to her diet, Angie begins her day with a refreshing glass of juice and ends it with a nourishing bowl of soup, often opting for bone or meat-based broths rich in collagen, which helps to maintain clear and youthful skin by promoting gut health.

She also enjoys Chinese tea for its polyphenols, which have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and an abundance of antioxidants to combat free radicals, which can cause the skin to age faster.

That’s not all, because Angie also firmly emphasises the importance of starting an anti-ageing beauty regimen early on and practises a weekly exfoliation ritual employing olive oil and coarse salt. This natural body scrub not only softens the skin but also restores hydration as it’s enriched with vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Lastly, she stresses the importance of exercising, with yoga being one of her favourite forms. The slow movements and deep breathing in yoga increase blood flow and warm up muscles, while holding poses build strength and oxygenates the skin, giving Angie that rosy, healthy glow that we’re all envious of!
