Anita Chui Bik Ka yesterday attended a martial art fitness center opening and revealed that although she was selected to be one of the 43 candidates in Stephen Chow Sing Chi's new film MERMAID (MEI YUN YU) actor recruitment, she still tried to keep an even keel about the result. "Next week the next round of 12 will be announced. Right now I don't know what new performance the new round will have, but it should be even more in depth because only the final 12 can see Sing Yeh." Reportedly Sing Yeh held a yacht party and invited candidates to attend. She did not know anything about that. At the time she was in Beijing so no one invited her.

Artist Rachel Lam Hei Tung and Frankie Lam Man Lung worked on their new film NGOR MOON TING JIN BA! (LET'S STOP FIGHTING!). They would have a teacher student romance. Rachel said, "Man Lung plays our class supervisor. My character likes to cause trouble. In the film I have more than one scene in the rain. They are meaningful but I won't spoil anything yet. When I was little I liked Lam Man Lung, I have never thought that I would be able to work with him. We would have an appropriate intimate scene. (Did you write and star to get close to your idol?) I am shy, on the set I hide behind starting trouble. However I am very happy to work with the handsome and solid Man Lung!" Lam Man Lung in the film faced social pressure for her love. She even busted her had open to relieve the pressure.

Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Shawn Yue Man Lok, Angela Wang Shiling and Wong Jing yesterday morning gathered at the Yuen Long Studio to continue work on a cockpit scene for FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 2 (DOH SING FUNG WON 2). Ka Fai just finished promoting his new film in the Mainland and immediately joined the production upon returning to Hong Kong. Spaking of his "written, directed, starred" ice bucket challenge video, he joked, "That day I was working in Shanghai, I shot it as soon as I got up even before I brushed my teeth! However my challenges to Fat Gor, Wong Jing and (Andrew) Lau Wai Keung were all turned down. Some day at a meeting with Lau Wai Keung he said he would 'cover it' but in the end he still forgot." Ka Fai felt that the society had too many conflicts, he wanted to do something to help people. As for being turned down, he helplessly said, "It doesn't matter, the three of them normally do charity work anyway."
On the set, Little Shiling and Wong Jing were unusually close. Actually while shooting on location in Thailand, they often ran into traffic jams and gradually their relationship grew. Wong Jing revealed, "We had nothing to do in the car, so I told her stories." As for director Lawrence Ah Mon (Lau Kwok Cheung)'s invitation to Ada Wong Chi Hom to perform nude in his new film, her father Brother ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Eason Chan recently admitted that while there is much pressure to do drugs in showbiz, he has never been tempted to try it.
As reported on Tencent Entertainment, the singer, who spoke to college students as part of the "Speak It!" programme in Beijing, told the audience that being in showbiz means being close to drugs.
"But I have never tried it, though there is much pressure to do so. One must never do drugs," said the singer.
Eason also said that he is lucky to have his wife, Hilary Tsui, who would encourage him to de-stress by exercising instead.
Asked if he would forgive a friend or family member who do drugs, Eason thought for a moment before replying, "I will choose to forgive and give them my support as well, so that they have the confidence to return to the right path."

It was reported that Taiwanese authority has recently received a tip from the Beijing police that the source of Jaycee's stack may have come from a Taiwanese supplier.
According to Phoenix, Jaycee, who is currently in detention after using and keeping more than 110 gram marijuana in his Beijing residence, reportedly confessed that he obtained the drugs from an underground rapper known as "F".
Based on preliminary information from Beijing, Taiwanese police said that F, who performs in night clubs around Taiwan with his rap group, is also a prominent shareholder of two night clubs, which enabled him to meet a lot of mainstream celebrities, including Jaycee.
Reportedly, F already has a drug case in the past, but due to the lack of evidence and his family's strong military background, the police have decided to avoid pre-emptive crackdown.
The police are still seeking for more verification on the matter.

Feeling sorry for fans whose money might have been cheated by ticket scalpers, Hong Kong singer Sammi Cheng recently announced that she has added two more nights to her upcoming year end concert.
According to Mingpao News, despite adding three more shows to the originally seven-show "Touch Mi" concert, tickets have been selling like hot cakes due to the fact that it's her first concert since opening her last show in 2009, to the extent that a number of fans were unable to get the tickets on time.
This has led to the emergence of ticket scalpers, who sell the tickets up to ten times their original price.
Thus, on 21 August, Sammi held another press conference and announced that two more dates have been added to the concert, making it 12 shows in total.
The singer, who is set to perform at the Hong Kong Coliseum from 20 to 22 December, 24 to 28 December, and 30 to 31 December, has now added 1 and 2 January to the show.
"We wanted the fans to see my show at a reasonable price, but I did not expect that it would lead to this [scalpers and scams]," said Sammi. "I hope I will get to hold more fan-gathering in future, so that they won't have to wait for five years to see me perform."

SPL II (SAT POR LONG II) is heating up in production in Thailand. Although the climate has been rather humid and many scenes required a lot of action from the cast, they did not complain at all despite sweating bullets everyday.
Yesterday when one of the key actors Tony Jaa arrived on the set for makeup as usual, he received a call from his family that his father suddenly passed away from illness. Director Soi Cheang Po Shui, producers Wilson Yip Wai Man and Paco Wong all expressed their sorrow and sent comfort and support to Tony Jaa. Tony Jaa immediately took a few days off from the shoot and returned home that was a six hour drive away from the set. Because Tony Jaa has completed most of his action scenes and his shoot almost reached its end, Cheang Po Shui believed that the film will be completed as scheduled.

Finishing two films in three months Ng Chin Yu said that she felt a great sense of satisfaction. In September she will work on a Lunar New Year film.
Raymond Lam Fung has already officially left TVB, reportedly she hoped for him to be in the same company and sign with Raymond Wong Pak Ming. Chin Yu said that she had no opinion on which company her boyfriend would sign with. He and her boss were very familiar and they were working together before he even knew her. Speaking of couple jobs in the same company, Chin Yu admitted that she was afraid that she would be embarrassed and acting was very hard with her boyfriend. She felt that she did not need to bring up her relationship for work. In this film she and Yau Nam had a kiss scene. She said, "Originally the director on the first take said that we only needed to touch, but in the second take I had to force a kiss on Yau Nam. I was very shy and had to take the initiative. This time I gave up my first on screen kiss." Yet Wong Yau Nam denied that Chin Yu initiated the forced kiss ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
