Cecil Chao Sze-tsung is a Hong Kong based billionaire who in 2012 shocked the whole world when he made an open offer to all the men of his country.. In a weird statement,issued through the national news media,this is what Cecil Chao has said in his statement..
“This is an open appeal to all the fellow men of my country..I’m now willing to unconditionally offer five hundred million Hong Kong dollars to any man from Hong Kong who can convince my daughter Gigi Chao into a marriage. ”
But What Made Cecil Chao Give Such A Weird Statement..??
Gigi Chao,the 33-year old daughter of Cecil Chao,is in an ugly and unnatural relationship with another lady,Sean Eav,for almost nine years now..Cecil Chao did everything to break this relationship and convince his daughter to have normal marriage with a man…However,this didn’t work a bit as Gigi refused every attempt her dad made….
A fully fed up Cecil Chao then made that above weird appeal and shocked the whole world..He had also made several other attempts to convince his daughter but the much adamant Gigi Chao refused to marry a man and still continued her dirty relationship with that lady..
But that didn’t stop Cecil Chao from making further efforts to convince his daughter for a natural marriage with a man..He again created sensation all over Hong Kong recently by doubling the earlier offer he made to his fellow country men..
With such a life spinning offer coming their way from their country’s most popular billionaire,almost every man in the streets of Hong Kong started sending funny marriage proposals to Gigi Chao..This really irritated Gigi Chao to the core and this is how she had reacted to all those funny offers from the men of her country..
Later,making her stance clear about how she views her life; what thoughts she has about a marriage with a man and why she chose to have a female as a life partner,Gigi Chao has retaliated in a similar fashion and wrote an open letter,using the national news media,to her billionaire father,Cecil Chao..
And here’s the funny and shameless letter Gigi Chao wrote to her father..
I thought the timing was right for us to have a candid conversation.
You are one of the most mentally astute, energetic yet well mannered and hard-working people this humble earth has ever known.
Your confidence, quick wit, and charisma brightens any room you enter.
I love you very much, and I think I can speak for my brothers also, that we have the utmost respect for you as a father and role model in business.
I am sorry that people have been saying insensitive things about you lately. The truth is, they don’t understand that I will always forgive you for thinking the way you do, because I know you think you are acting in my best interests. And we both don’t care if anybody else understands.
As your daughter, I would want nothing more than to make you happy. But in terms of relationships, your expectations of me and the reality of who I am, are not coherent.
I am responsible for some of this misplaced expectation, because I must have misled you to hope there were other options for me. You know I’ve had male lovers in the past, and I’ve had happy, albeit short-lived, relationships. I found myself temporarily happy, buoyed by the freshness, the attention, the interest, of someone physically stronger than myself.
But it was always short-lived, as I quickly lost patience, and felt an indescribable discomfort in their presence. It usually made me frustrated, and I would yearn for my freedom again. I’ve broken a few hearts, hearts of good, honest and loving men, and I’m sorry that it had to be so.
But with Sean, a woman, somehow it was different. I am comfortable and satisfied with my life and completely at ease with her. I know it’s difficult for you to understand how I could feel romantically attracted to a woman; I suppose I can’t really explain it either. It just happens, peacefully and gently, and after so many years, we still love each other very much.
My regret is that you have no idea how happy I am with my life, and there are aspects of my life that you don’t share. I suppose we don’t need each other’s approval for our romantic relationships, and I am sure your relationships are really fantastic too.
However, I do love my partner Sean, who does a good job of looking after me, ensuring I am fed, bathed and warm enough every day, and generally cheering me up to be a happy, jolly girl. She is a large part of my life, and I am a better person because of her.
Now, I’m not asking you to be best of friends; however, it would mean the world to me if you could just not be so terrified of her, and treat her like a normal, dignified human being.
I understand it is difficult for you to understand, let alone accept this truth.
I’ve spent a lot of time figuring out who I am, what is important in my life, who I love and how best to live life, as an expression of all these questions. I am proud of my life, and I would not choose to live it any other way (except also figuring out how to be gentler on the planet).
I’m sorry to mislead you to think I was only in a lesbian relationship because there was a shortage of good, suitable men in Hong Kong.
There are plenty of good men, they are just not for me.
Wishing you happiness.
Your daughter, Gigi.
