Leon Lai Ming and Wang Luodan worked together on the film THE SECRET (SIU SUT DIK OI YUN) and played a romance that was destined to be lost. They even had many kiss scenes.

Lai Ming was invited to perform the theme song for the film, interpreting the character's emotions with his singing. He said, "Too many things in our lives are taken for granted. They are so simple that most seem to overlook them. Yet at a certain moment, we would suddenly realize that these normally seemingly ordinary happiness are gone. We would only feel their value once they are gone."

FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 3 (DOH SING FUNG WON III) brings together superstars Chow Yun Fat, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Jacky Cheung Hok Yau and Carina Lau Ka Ling. Director Andrew Lau Wai Keung described the film as "all the gods return" with "Ko Chun", "Dagger Chan" and "Dragon" as well as villain Cheung Hok Yau. He said that Fat Gor and Cheung Ka Fai had the "yin and yang" comedy effect. The former would talk a lot and Cheung Ka Fai would just say one line. If both were "yang" then it would be Mars crashing into Earth.

FROM 3 had the comedic PRISON ON FIRE classic scene. Fat Gor even turned into "MAN IN THE NET" and was hung in mid air. He and Lau Ka Ling continued the romance from the previous film. She had to make a choice betwen Fat Gor and Hok Yau. Ka Ling appeared with very changes like she was in a fashion show, but she still was jealous of Hok Yau. In the film each one of his costumes were priceless.

It was announced on 11 January that legendary English singer David Bowie passed away at the age of 69. Also known by the same name, Bowie Lam (林保怡) accepted an interview and expressed: "David Bowie isn't that old yet, such a pity that he passed away! His songs comprise a large percentage in my collection of vinyl records. My most favorite song of his is China Girl. (Did you name yourself Bowie because of him?) Back then when I signed with Warner Music Group because my boss spoke English, I named myself Bowie so he would have a deep impression of me. After I released my album, the company also told me to change my Chinese name to "Bo Yee" (保怡) in order to match Bowie. Thus, "Bo Yee" became my artiste name."
