Hong Kong real estate tycoon Cecil Chao Sze-tsung has offered a bounty of almost $65 million for any man who will woo and marry his 33-year-old daughter Gigi Chao. Since then, offers to take Gigi’s hand in marriage have been pouring forth from all over the globe. There’s just one slight problem: Gigi’s already taken.

According to reports, the announcement came on the heels of Gigi Chao’s nuptials to her longtime girlfriend, Sean Yeung, in April. The two reportedly were married in Paris and not in Hong Kong, where gay rights are limited.

In a recent South China Morning Post article, the tycoon’s daughter criticized the territory’s conservative views toward homosexuality, saying that it lagged behind the U.S. and even mainland China. (Homosexuality was officially decriminalized in Hong Kong in 1991, but same-sex unions are still not recognized.)

In an interview with the Telegraph, Gigi said she understood the reasons behind her father’s actions. “It’s not that he can’t accept me,” she told the newspaper. “It’s that he can’t accept how society would view me and the status that it would incur. Marriage is still a form of social status. I do understand him. I understand why he’s doing this.”

Her father, meanwhile, has not publicly acknowledged his daughter’s marriage. As he told the Post:

I do not mind whether [the man who marries Gigi] is rich or poor. The important thing is that he is generous and kindhearted. Gigi is a very good woman with both talents and looks. She is devoted to her parents, is generous and does volunteer work.

Gigi, who was initially amused by the monetary offer, told the Telegraph she appreciated the gesture. “At first I was entertained by it, and then that entertainment turned into the realization and conviction that I am a really lucky girl to have such a loving daddy, because it’s really sweet of him to do something like this as an expression of his fatherly love.”

She added, “But I don’t appreciate getting 1,500 e-mails.”

If u were asking for that question , Of Course . I would do it .

These money can raise a country and doubt gods with ungodly advanced technology . 1 million  was enough for me to set bomb in my whole country . But on the others hand , love is not depended on your age or appearance , it is your attitude problem . 

And people who interested with these dirty money , should be shame on yourself  .

Mr. Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, I am a proud mother of  seven (7) ages 19-35yrs, and a grandmother of fourteen (14) . With all due respect, what if your daughter asked you to marry a man, and she will be heterosexual ? Either way, no one will be happy. You are asking that she unring the bell.  At the same time you are advertising your daughter to a world of psycho's, kidnappers, thiefs the worst of the worst! When asked, 1/3 men said they will marry for money, 100% for sex! My advise to you now will be to hire unemployed Navy Seals to protect her from the potiential prey. Then pray a sequel to "The Body Guard" becomes of it. Money cant buy everything, Wishing you the best of luck.

Last week saw the news . Cecil Chao Tsung himself , he was delighted to hear the name of the person you want her daughter gigi itself. Love for his daughter khujamchena people . He says the truth , do not trust anyone . Gigi chao liked my artwork . Myanali terrible in his coloring . I want to marry him at the end . If you are willing to marry me at the moment and at the moment I agreed .

A man who would prefer to make partner , that partner is talking to me . With which my happiness - sorrow , Items can be shared openly . My favorite things to talk about with whom . With respect and listen to my feelings , from which I can learn something . With that in mind, you can say no, can not proceed with the ever so long together .

Establish social and sexual relations between a man and a woman in marriage is a religious observance . Are triggered by marriage family . Propagates through marriage and inheritance are also opportunities . Men related to each other by marriage the husband ( partner ) and her spouse ( spouse ) is identified as . A life husband and wife " marriage " is as described . Practiced a variety of different religious wedding . Similarly , the institution of marriage in different societies are different . Marriage is essentially a religious practice, but modern civilization is a legal practice .

I am a Muslim boy . Bisbabasi Who shall tell this to people they like us , love them and have in mind .

 don't trust anyone in this world ...and the way which you announced that i will give billions money  is hardly wrong ...the person who see the money he wont take care of your daughter from his deep heart ...

don't try to spoil you r daughter life telling all this crabs .... the man who want to marry your daughter  is not to suggest her money and background ..he must want to love her from bottom of heart that is true love then marry him to her ...you and you r daughter must want to full fill in you r heart of progress that this man is perfect to my daughter as a father you have to think that .as a daughter she must want to be happy to marry him OK ......

MONEY COMES TODAY AND GOES TOMORROW ...BUT LIVING TRUE TRUST LOVE LIFE  WONT GO FOREVER AND EVER ...


THINK THAT DEEPLY AND DECIDE IT ...


BEFORE MARRIAGE JUST  DISCUS  THE FUTURE WITH YOUR DAUGHTER ASK WHAT SHE LIKE AND DISLIKE ..TAKE CARE OF HER ..BECAUSE SHE TO HAVE FEELING AND DREAM ..JUST LIKE THAT YOU CANT DO MARRIAGE HER ....

BEWARE SOME PEOPLE ARE GOOD / SOME OF THEM ARE BAD ...SO FIRST DON'T MENTION THE WORD THAT I WILL PAY THIS MUCH ITS LIKE SALE  PROCESS WITH PRICE ...

Resist the temptation to judge. A daughter who has a father who attempts to "rescue" her from her own likes, is not uncommon. 

To offer an exhorbinate amount of money is not that unusual, if you subscribe to the philosophy that money can solve issues (if any) of the heart. He has chosen to make this his issue. By offering the most valuable asset he THINKS he posesses, so be it. It is an indication that the relationships in his life are based on material things, not nuances of the heart.

I feel for them both. She has a father who, in the context of "helping" her, omly serves to judge her, and bring throngs of "white Knights" to her rescue.

The only rescue she needs is to be her own person. Perhaps her attraction to his money is being used by both of them. 

I wish you the best for you both.

 I like to believe that no one can MAKE someone happy, but they can help someone be happy.  only because if  you give someone the power to MAKE you happy, they also have the power to MAKE you unhappy.  <3 PEACE :)
