Petrina Fung Bo Bo recently participated in the Clifton Ko Chi Sum directed and written film WONDER MAMA (MA MI HUP) with Kenneth Tsang Kong, Susan Shaw Yam Yam and BabyJohn Choi Hong Yik. Sister Bo Bo has been away from film for ten years and made a rare return to film. WONDER MAMA before its release has already participated in many film festivals like the 2014 Golden Horse Film Festival Asian Window segment, The East Winds Film Festival in England and Singapore Chinese Film Festival.

Earlier Fung Bo Bo, Tsang Kong and executive producer Raymond Wong Pak Ming flew to Beijing to attend the 5th Beijing International Film Festival red carpet ceremony. Fung Bo Bo even won a wedding gown to demonstrate that she was married to film for life. Sister Bo Bo said, "My life is like I am married to film. For the film festival, this time I asked the designer to make me a wedding gown to represent the life that I share with the camera." She said that the Mainland audience knew her from the television series EMPRESS WU. 31 years later she walked the red carpet in Beijing for the first time as an executive producer and a lead actress. She was emotional. Thus the WONDER MAMA production to her was particularly meaningful.

Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin and Andy Hui Chi On two nights ago attended a new car unveiling party. Speaking of the Hong Kong Film Awards tonight, the second time Best Actress nominee Ah Sa said that she would attend as usual. However her friends were more nervous than she was.

Ah Sa said, earlier she had dinner with Mommy. Mommy even made a deduction. When she was nominated for the first time for Best New Performer, the award went to the Ann Hui On Wa directed JULY RHAPSODY (NAM YUN SEI SUP)'s Karena Lam Ka Yun; the last time she was nominated for Best Actress, THE POST MODERN LIFE OF MY AUNT's Siqin Gaowa won. The film was also Hui On Wa directed; thus Mommy deduced that this year Tang Wei will win Best Actress, because her film was also Director Hui's.

However Ah Sa said no matter who wins she would be just as happy. She was already very pleased with the nomination. Would she prepare a thank you speech? Ah Sa admitted that she has not and did not dare to think about it. As for what she would wear, she said that her image designer has personally gone to New York to pick up her clothes.
