MCDULL ME AND MY MUM two nights ago held its premiere at the Kowloon Bay Exhibition Center. Wilson Chin Kwok Wai and his girlfriend Calinda Chan Yuen Wai attended. The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed new film MERMAID will have Chin Kwok Wai as its executive director. Chin Kwok Wai revealed that most of the cast has been confirmed and the production will start around mid October. Mainly Mainland and Hong Kong actors will perform.

Chow Sing Chi earlier was criticized online for being hard to get along with. Most who have worked with him would neither work together for too long nor become friends. Chin Kwok Wai said, "I don't feel this way. . When I went to work in TVB, it happened to be the end of his TVB life. When I got into the business I have played the 'black and white vampires', I have shared the stage with him. Later we ran into each other once or twice on the street." He pointed out that with every film or production, co-workers would normally argue. Also, TVB earlier downsized fifty people, including long time employees. He said, "I heard that the entire children department was removed, which was regrettable. The children department more than cultivated Sing Yeh, (Tony) Leung Chiu Wai, (Margie) Tsang Wa Sin, (Dior) Cheng Yi Kin and other stars, I hope Hong Kong would have its own children's programs." Chin Kwok Wai pointed out that some former co-workers were affected. If they asked for his help he certainly would.

Other attendees included screen writers Rachel Lam Hei Tung, Patrick Tam Yiu Man, Pinky Cheung Man Chi, Ai Wai, Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) and Charles Ying Cheung Yau. NGOR was about the Hong Kong situation. Lam Man Lung pointed out that the story coincidentally matched with the latest Hong Kong situation. As for the recent "Occupy Central" movement, Lam Man Lung said, "I haven't supported it, the matter has no right or now. Each side has its own stance, both sides have right and right. I can't comment over an individual event. Many people flock to do something, but we must isolate our own thinking to look at the entire matter." Screen writer and actress Lam Hei Tung said that she said something that she wanted to say so she wrote the story. As for the current situation of Hong Kong, Lam Hei Tung said, "Everything is cyclical, I believe each place would have something like this happening. I would express my opinions on the streets. I understand that a nation has something it has to be concerned about, but when you go to the streets you would know the students' stance."

Tam Yiu Man played a teacher in the film and had intimate scenes with Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi). He ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

 Ada Choi has no qualms about her children participating in protests in the future, provided that they understand the motives of their action.


According to Mingpao News, the actress, who attended the Orbis Superpower Festival recently, expressed her concern over the students who are involved in the Occupy Central protest for a fairer election.


"Students were injured by pepper sprays, and though I am not their family, my heart feel for them when seeing this," she said.


However, unlike Anthony Wong, who expressed his dissatisfaction with the police, Ada said she understands that they were only doing their job and not necessarily wanted to hurt students.


"I wish they can find a peaceful way to resolve this. Don't let people fight against each other. The chief executive should listen to what the students have to say," she said.


Asked if she would let her own children, Zoe and Shun Yee, participate in such a rally in the future, Ada replied, "As long as they know what they're doing and understand the motives of their action, and as long as it's for the purpose of justice and righteousness, I will give them my full support."
