Hong Kong: Hong Kong real estate tycoon Cecil Chao offered 500 million Hong Kong dollars to any man who could successfully win his lesbian daughter Gigi Chao in 2012.

Last week, he double the amount and in response, Gigi Chao wrote an open letter to her father asking him to accept her for who she is, a lesbian.

Gigi Chao married her partner of nine years, Sean Eav, in a civil ceremony in France in 2012.

Her father however still claims his daughter is still single. Cecil Chao says, it is not too late to change her thinking because she was only 33.

Previously Gigi had laughed off her father's bid to find her a husband. However, this time she wrote a open letter asking him to halt his efforts.

Read  Gigi's open letter to her father:

Dear Daddy,

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.
