The Sammo Hung Kam Bo directed and starred new film LO WAI BING (OLD GUARD) earlier shot in Heilongjiang. Lately it has been shooting on location in Vladivostok, Russia. Big Brother Big's family all came to visit the set. This time Big Brother Big called in many favors. Originally even his low spirited good brother Jackie Chan agreed to guest star, but in the end he was unable to make time to come. Speaking of Jaycee Chan's drug arrest, Big Brother Big admitted that he was very shocked after finding out. He still has not called Jackie Chan yet, as he believed that as a father he would not be pleased. He also hoped that everyone would give Cho Ming some space.

After a long hiatus from directing, Hung Kam Bo lately has been busy with the film LO WAI BING, which has already entered its wrap stage. Yesterday it shot in Vladivostock. This time the production even received the local government's support with road blocks and police to maintain order. Big Brother Big at work not only had workers holding umbrellas to provide shade for him, his wife Joyce Godenzi (Go Lai Hung), daughter Stephanie Hung Hei Yu, son Jimmy Hung Tin Cheung and his girlfriend all visited the set.

Sandra Ng Kwan Yu and Michelle Reis (Lee Ka Yun) were invited to appear on Liza Wang Ming Chuen's talk program QUEEN'S FEAST, which taped yesterday. Kwan Yu revealed that she was busy with preparations for her new film GOLDEN DUCK (GUM NGAP) as she worked hard on finding actors. She will seek the suitable choice internationally, the soonest it will start production at the end of the month for a Lunar New Year release. She revealed that last month she went to Taiwan for research. She said, "I went to a duck (gigolo) shop in Taiwan, actually it wasn't considered a duck shop as it was a licensed night spot. The boss came in and appeared to be exactly like (Peter) Chan Ho Sun. We were all stunned; after he left, we still laughed for a full 5 minutes. If I put this story into the film it would be too exaggerated, but it really happened in real life."

The good news of babies have been non-stop in the entertainment industry lately! After Ronald Cheng and his wife, Sammie Yu and Michael Tse and his wife, Tina announcing their good news, yesterday, there were double happy announcements. Yesterday night, when Gigi Leung and Aimee Chan attended a jewelry function in Central, both of them announced that they were pregnant for 3 and a half months. When both pregnant ladies saw each other, they shook hands and congratulated each other. But Gigi, who wore a tight dress last night, had an obvious baby bump, winning Aimee in the spotlight. 

38 year old Gigi Leung and Spanish husband, Sergio successfully got pregnant after getting married in 2011. In July, Apple Daily reported that Gigi and her husband successfully got pregnant when they went on vacation in America, but because the pregnancy did not reach 3 months yet, Gigi did not announce the good news. Until yesterday, the first time that Gigi appeared at a public even after her pregnancy rumours, did she finally admit that she is pregnant for 3 and half months. Aimee Chan, who was also at the event, also announced that she is pregnant with her second child. 

Will stay in Hong Kong to give birth; Mother will take care of her

Yesterday night, Gigi wore two inch high heels and a pink tight dress to the event. Although she and Aimee are both pregnant for three and a half months, but Gigi's stomach was evidently a lot bigger. Regarding this, Gigi laughed: "My mom said it's very big too. Perhaps the baby absorbed the water to protect (him/her)self." ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
