On 03 February, Niki Chow (周麗淇) wore a white dress to attend the opening ceremony as spokesperson for jewellery store, Just Gold and the organisation committee arranged a French man to kneel down with 6 carats of diamond ring worth Five Million.

When asked if the organisation committee really gave 6 carat diamond ring to her, Niki said: "I do not think so and they will deduct from my fees if giving it to me. (6 carat diamond ring is unnecessary for marriage proposal?) Yes. (Will marry regardless of any rings?) Not really and it must be symbolic. (No need to kneel with ring?) Ring is required and it must have some traditional symbols but sincerity is most important. It is most essential to love that person and big or small diamond ring does not matter. It is also unnecessarily to kneel down and I have not try it before. (Feel embarrassed when the French man kneels down?) Yes. Anyway, it is a form of blessings and wish the luck will happen to me soon."

(Will you talk as a policeman since you acted in many police roles?) Nope but I did many research for this series. I have friend who works as traffic police and asked them about their terminology. (Filming the series with full concentration as you are a car lover?) In fact, many colleagues have motorcycle licences and they like to talk about cars. We drove motorcycle to see and help out when others were filming a car scene."

After "Some Day", Wayne Lai is working with Teresa Mo again in a sitcom after many years. This time, the theme revolves around matters that happen at a television station. He expects it to be quite fun. "As a sitcom, talking about a television station is quite good. There can be many character relationships...seems real and fake. If there is new gossip, can also add it in to let viewers have room for imagination...quite fun. I will portray a television producer...being an executive. Teresa is my secretarial assistant. Certainly, we are talking about a television station in a nutshell...cannot be as large-scale as a real television station". Power Chan, Chung King Fai, etc. are also taking part. Chung King Fai portrays Wayne's father, while Power is Teresa's uncle.

This series begins filming in March, and is temporarily filming for a half-year.

Kar Lok said, "The lead actress is very important. The five of us have certain class, of course I have to find actresses of a certain "cup size" to match us!"

Ekin also said that he wanted to play a woman. Tin Wa suggested for Ekin to play his wife -- in a coma! Siu Chun suddenly said that he wanted to play a mute, which Kar Lo joked that he has always been mute! Ah Lo saw through Siu Chun's scheme. "You just don't want to learn your lines, it won't be that easy. The story starts with you as a mute, but you would recall 15 years ago before you were mute. You even really liked to speak, haha!" Ekin suggested for Siu Chun to narrate. Ah Lo joked that the audience would be asleep five minutes into the start of the film. Tin Wa joked that the subtitles had to be very clear.
