He kissed the birthday girl on her lips, drawing applause from the onlookers and making Lai very happy.

Lai commented about it on social media.

This year I got the Prize Master to blow my birthday candles and wish me ‘Happy Birthday’, my wish this year is (for) world peace without any hatred.

Netizens Are All Abuzz 

Lai is a relative newcomer in the entertainment industry, but her resume included a jewellery commercial shoot with HK actor Benjamin Yuen.

Lai is the rumoured goddaughter of prominent Hong Kong businessman Lawrence Yu and a regular feature at yacht parties and elite parties.

She enjoys a massive following on her social media profile which is full of pictures of her out at sea and outfitted in bikinis which show off her curvaceous figure.

Netizens speculated about her relationship with Tsang, given that he acted as if he was her boyfriend during the party.

They questioned if this was a birthday celebration or if the birthday girl was being taken advantage of.

It caught so much attention that HK pundits also discussed the incident besides reporting by local media.

Tsang Clears The Air

In response, Tsang said he was merely trying to be polite and dismissed the matter as trivial.

The media quoted Tsang as being there for caviar tasting when an acquaintance brought a few friends over.

They asked if he could join in singing a birthday song for Lai, their friend, which Tsang obliged.

I feel like the birthday kiss was just a slight touch. This is common courtesy. We’ve done the same wishes for friends’ birthdays! Also, we have a habit of not posting it on Facebook. I really don’t think it’s such a big deal.
