Miriam Yeung Chin Wa earlier turned into a crybaby while working on her film LITTLE BIG MASTER (NG GOR SIU HAI DIK HAU JEUNG). During the shoot, with five innocent child actors she again turned into a mother. In addition several excellent child actors' innocent performance made this "Principal" into a crybaby. She often cried until her eyes were swollen and she had to stop the camera to recover! The graduation ending scene was the most memorable for Chin Wa. "The ending took 4 days to shoot. During the shoot I already cried until my eyes were swollen. In the end I found that several shots didn't have their close up take, but I was completely exhausted. It was the last day on location too. When I got home I was very unwilling. I immediately called the team and said that I couldn't answer to myself because it wasn't what they wanted the most. I said that I wanted to go back and shoot, this time I definitely would be able to do it. If I had to beg on glass I would do it to everyone individually. The next day the entire crew went back to shoot. Everyone completed the shoot very seriously!"

Aside from Chin Wa, actually producer Benny Chan Muk Sing and director Kwan Shun Fai also wept. They said that during the shoot they cried as they worked!

Andy Lau Tak Wa in the film LOST AND LOVE (SUT GOO) played farmer Lei Zekuan. During the shoot Wa Jai not only constantly mediated conflicts between fans and the team but also took care of the less experienced Jing Boran at every turn. In the film they would develop a father and son like relationship. In order for Jing Boran to inject real emotions, Wa Jai off camera also took the initiative to communicate with Jing Boran to bring them closer. They talked about film as well as trivial matters in their lives, as well as dirty jokes. Lau Tak Wa said that having fun with him would make him feel like they were very close. He said, "I have to make him realize that I too am juat a person. I have to remove the distance that the name Lau Tak Wa created between us. Later he already felt like I was Lei Zekuan."

Lau Tak Wa and Jing Boran would ride a motorcycle on the highway. One day Jing Boran fell in one scene and his calf had a third degree burn from the motorcycle exhaust pipe; but because they were shooting on the highway, Jing Boran after the injury still insisted on remaining with the team instead of returning to Beijing or going to the hospital. Wa Jai admitted that when he saw him his heart ached and he could not sleep. He was burnt on a exhaust pipe in a past film production, of ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ann Hui On Wa earlier appeared on a Cable program and talked about her life as a director and her love life. Hui On Wa pointed out that she was practical. She made movies truly for the awards, so most of her films had good review but poor box office. She felt that losing at the box office but winning awards was a type of comfort to workers, actors and investors.

Hui On Wa admitted that she had difficulties with making commercial films because her films were not made to please the audience. Her film subjects were all based on her own feeling. If she had to make a movie with the sure fire Hollywood formula, she would not be able to.

Hui On Wa also recalled when she first got into the business and working with Josephine Siao Fong Fong. She remembered that at the time Fong Fong was responsible for the finances. She had a tight grip and did not allow any expense, thus she was very afraid of her. Hui On Wa said, "I used to constantly go over budget, after her disciplining, I control both time and resources very well. In the end only I only spent a little over 1 million to make THE WAY WE ARE (TIN SHUI WAI DIK YUT YU YEH)." Looking back, she was very thankful for Fong Fong's guidance and other people who have helped her in the industry.

Hui On Wa's work depicted women's psychology in detailed and touching manner. How did she see love in real life? Hui On Wa said that in her 30s and 40s she longed for marriage. Now she no longer thinks much ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Last year, artiste, Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) and his ex-wife, Shi Yangzi (石洋子) were divorced. He brought his daughter to Thailand for vacation and left a happy message: "Happy times passed very quickly! The Thailand trip is ending soon and tomorrow is the last day! Dad has arranged a yacht trip and we might be able to catch 1 or 2 fishes for dinner if the weather is good."

Shi Yangzi also happened to be in Thailand at the same time and uploaded photo of her beautiful thighs on the internet. Ever ponder if it is a pre-arranged holiday or a coincidence to travel to Thailand at the same time?
