Hong Kong actor-director Patrick Tse turned 79 on our National Day (August 9) and enjoyed a cosy family celebration at his actor son Nicholas Tse’s house on Tuesday.
As both father and son are both August babies, they shared a joint birthday celebration on August 11, in between their actual birthdays on August 9 and 29.
Nicholas was the chef of the day, who personally prepared a 12-course meal for his family to celebrate his father’s longevity. Even Lucas and Quintus (Nicholas’ two sons) joined the party and specially sang their grandfather a birthday song.
Showing that he’s still strong and healthy at 79 years old, Patrick flashed his “big guns” toward his model daughter Jennifer when he flexed his right arm for a photo, which she later posted online with the caption: “His equivalent of (saying) ‘I still got it!’ #ageisjustanumber #79candlestoblowout”
Patrick spoke to reporters on the date of the celebration and explained that he was “very happy to be able to enjoy his son’s 12-course meal”. When asked about what his wishes for this year were, he smiled and said, “My wish is for all of you to write honestly!”
