Carina Lau Ka Ling, Juno Mak Chun Lung, and others two nights attended a charity event. Mak Chun Lung said that his new record will be released this week. Speaking of Louis Koo Tin Lok's male singer nomination, producer Juno was happy for Goo Jai and for the expectation that everyone held. "We met while working on SONS OF THE NEON NIGHTS (FUNG LUM FOR SHAN), during the shoot I asked Goo Ja for a duet. His condition was as long as he did not have to sing live. He also explained to him that the song was designed for his character, interpreting with music. He very quickly understood." Juno also praised Goo Jai for his outstanding record studio performance. As for whether Goo Jai would change his mind and sing live, he said that it would depend on Goo Jai's wishes.

Sean Lau Ching Wan two nights ago attended a shopping center Christmas lighting ceremony. He performed magic on the stage and revealed that ths year he and his wife Amy Kwok Oi Ming would consider celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary with a Christmas in Finland.

Just completing his new film, Ching Wan joked that he was worried about the cold and thus has not decided on whether to go to Finland. He said, "I heard that a popsicle would not melt from 9 in the morning to 9 at night, but I am the most afraid of coming from and going to indoor places. I would have to put on and take off clothes. With the cold the skin would be drier." As for how he would celebrate his wedding anniversary, Ching Wan said that it would probably be a dinner with friends. He said that time flew as several years went by in the brink of an eye. Did Ching Wan and his wife maintain their first love feeling? "No, 20 years just went unknowingly." Ching Wan said that he did not deliberately buy a gift for his wife. He admitted that anything that would catch his eyes and he could afford, he would have bought it already. If not, he could not afford to buy it even on holidays.

Yesterday Lord Eight led leads Max Zhang Jin and Chrissie Chau Sau Na to the home of martial arts Foshan to begin its promotion. Wherever Zhang Jin went, people kept asking to either demonstrate his kung fu or spare with them; Being abused nonstop in the film, Chau Sau Na left many viewers with heartaches as they felt sorry for her.

Lord Eight led Zhang Jin and Chau Sau Na first to the International Wushu Federation's Wing Chun competition opening ceremony. The host already asked Zhang Jin to demonstrate his kung fu on the stage. Zhang Jin then made the "Cheung Tin Chi" trademark pose. Later he went to many cinemas for audience appreciation events. A foreigner viewer demonstrated Wing Chun and someone stated that they would like to spare with Zhang Jin. Students at the sports academy wanted to practice with Zhang Jin. Zhang Jin said, "Practicing kung fu would be no problem, but with the film release on the way. If you want to see my kung fu clearly, of course buying a ticket to the movie would be the bvest." Foshan was the home of martial arts. Everyone's passion and pursuit of kung fu was understandable to Zhang Jin.

In the film Chau Sau Na was slapped around by Kevin Cheng Ka ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Later the whole family would celebrate the Lunar New Year in Hong Kong. Lee Sinjie said that she missed her friends in Hong Kong the most. Each time she returned to Hong Kong she would meet with Gigi Leung Wing Kei and Karena Lam Ka Yun. She also missed the food of Hong Kong a lot, as she would eat from morning to night and go out.

Lee Sinjie said that this year in Malaysia she finished a new film based on a novel THE GARDEN OF EVENING MISTS with Japanese star Hiroshi Abe. She said that she has seen his work and felt very excited and fortunate when she learned that she would work with him.

Lee Sinjie said that she would miss her children very much while at work, fortunately the production in Malaysia. However the location was rather remote, so everyday she would stay in touch with video conferencing. Her older son now speaks very well. She taught him Cantonese and Fujianese. Charlie Yeung Choi Nei also has been in Singapore and Malaysia often, so their twins could play together. However they probably would be too late for any Christmas arrangement. When would she make Hong Kong film again? Lee Sinjie said that ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Vivian Hsu would stay in Hong Kong for three days but due to the tight schedule she could not bring her three year old son with her. She stated that she missed him very much, but as he grew older she could return to work. She would be responsible for her son and would not only focus on work.

Vivian Hsu said that she has not appear in Hong Kong for seven years, but she has come for series and commercial work. She said that since she got married she has not been to Hong Kong. Yesterday she passed by Nathan Road and really wanted to go shopping, but she did not have time. She might not even have time to see her friends in Hong Kong. At most they might meet for dinner at the hotel.

In TAG she played a divorced mother who was constantly afraid that her son would be taken away, to the point of a mental collapse. Did she have to cry in her performance? She only said that her encounter in the film was not something that an average person would. Everyone would know when they watch the film. However many viewers would be surprised that this horror film would make them cry!

Would she come to make a movie in Hong Kong again? Vivian Hsu said, "I really want to come to make a movie ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
