Louis Koo (古天樂) and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) acted together in the new movie, Triumph in the Skies (衝上雲霄), and they had busy work schedules until Lunar New Year eve, followed by few days of rest during Lunar New Year. Both celebrated the festival together with their families in Hong Kong.

Louis said: "I am the eldest son and always 'Bai Nian 拜年' with my family together. Day 1 of Lunar New Year is the worst as I need to pray to my ancestor at 5am and again at 12pm. We are very traditional." When asked if he was pressured to get married being born in a traditional family, Louis said: "It does not matter. (Start a family than 'Bai Nian 拜年' alone every year?) No choice. (Did your family arrange matchmaking for you?) It will be a bad situation if I need to go for matchmaking."

However, Louis felt embarrassed when 'Bai Nian 拜年' every year and said: "I am used to seeing relatives whenever 'bai nian' with my parents. But I am still alone and they already had their own family. Hahaha! I cannot recognise some of their children and they grow up very fast."

Charmaine Sheh gave free movie tickets to relatives

During Lunar New Year, Louis Koo and Charmaine Sheh gave free movie tickets to their relatives. Charmaine expressed that her mother's thinking resembled a westerner, and Louis interrupted: "Her mother lives in Hawaii and should wear bikini." Charmaine said: "We tried swimming together. But she stayed in Hong Kong now and wore Cheongsam again." Louis added: "You can wear it and go swimming together."

Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎), C AllStar, and others attended the recording of the programme, Sze U Tonight (今晚睇李), hosted by Johnson Lee (李思捷) and Pal Sinn (單立文) in Tseung Kwan O TVB City (將軍澳電視城). Kevin expressed that Johnson invited him as the guest and when asked if he requested Johnson not to ask specific questions, he said: "I am afraid of him and it is good to have different programmes. They can still play tennis during the programme."

Kevin added that he did not celebrate Lunar New Year in Hong Kong for several years and decided to celebrate with his family and relatives in Hong Kong this year. When asked if they pressured him to get married, Kevin said: "I am used to it and will get married when the timing is right. The special person has not appeared yet."

Johnson expressed that he felt honoured that Kevin agreed to his invitation as he seldom played games during the programme. When asked if he will force a confession from Kevin, Johnson said: "Nope. We know each other for more than 10 years and losing this friendship is not what I want. I will not give him hard feeling." Pal Sinn immediately laughed and said: "Let me ask him since I am not close to him. He has many relationships and you want to know which one?"

Johnson felt satisfied that the programme had average ratings of 16 pts last week, and did not expect it  will attract attention despite broadcasting at 10pm.

She revealed that during the Lunar New Year, she went to a lot of places to 'Bai Nian 拜年', and met many friends and relative. When asked if she ate many  food, Joey said: "I eat a lot, but do not weigh myself. It is obvious my face is more round but it does not matter, as I will be more matching with my acting partner, Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華), in the new series, With or Without You (東坡家事)."

The Hong Kong Stuntmen Association held its Spring Banquet on the Lunar 3rd. Current president Chin Kar Lok, Leung Siu Lung, Fan Mui Sun, Chen Kuan Tai, Chin Siu Ho attended. During his speech, Chin Ka Lok humorously wished members would "jump off the building everyday". Since stunt actors often had to jump off buildings and crash cars, this wish was for everyone to have work everyday. Three 2014 Professional Recommended Outstanding Action films were KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM), INSANITY (BO FUNG YU) and CONTROL and "Outstanding Contribution Awards" went to elders Leung Siu Chung and Tsui Chung Hok.

As for his son Jaycee Chan (Fong Cho Ming), Jackie Chan admitted that he has not seen him yet. In Taiwan Cho Ming earlier called him to wish him Happy New Year. "I called me with New Year greetings, but I like to talk face to face. So it was just a casual chat, to make a long story short. (Are you in a hurry to see your son?) After Changsha tomorrow I will go to Taiwan to spend the New Year with them. I am looking forward to it!" However Jackie Chan's Taiwan trip will be rushed as well because next month he will start promoting DRAGON in Hong Kong. In April he will have to have meetings for another new film.
