    Billionaire Cecil Chao Sze-tsung made headlines when he offered a reward of Rs 1200 crore to the man who could persuade his daughter Gigi to marry to him.
    Cecil Chao, who is a shipping magnate and property developer, in an interview with a Malaysian magazine, he insisted that it is ‘not too late’ to change his daughter's mind on her sexual preference, and was quoted saying: “I don’t want to interfere with my daughter’s private life. I only hope for her to have a good marriage and children as well as inherit my business.”
    Gigi had entered into a civil partnership with her female partner of almost nine years, Sean Eav. The dotting daughter penned him an open letter.
    Gigi said in her letter that she understood that it may be “difficult for you to understand, let alone accept” how she could be romantically attracted to a woman.
    She also said that “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’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."
