Banker

In 1995 a Hong Kong tabloid published a photo of the famous actor Leslie Cheung with another man, "Daffy" Tong Hok-Tak. In a 1997 concert, Cheung openly revealed that Tong was his "most beloved" after his mother. The Hong Kong media eventually accepted the two men's relationship and the tabloid gave Tong the nickname Tong Tong.

After Cheung's suicide, Cheung's family published a full-page obituary in a Hong Kong newspaper, in which Tong, his partner of 18 years, was listed as a surviving spouse. Tong, together with Cheung's eldest sister, was also designated as the executor of Cheung's estate. Tong had been Leslie's financial advisor, and was the one who helped to build up his vast fortune.
