Carlos Chan Ka Lok yesterday attended an event and revealed that he has been busy with the Emperor Motion Picture GUNG GUP GAU WOON (EMERGENCY RESCUE) in Xiamen. He said that when he met director Dante Lam Chiu Yin in August, he told him to learn to swim. Thus in a few short months he already learned the breast stroke and free style. Yet when he joined the team, the director kept his character from getting into the water!

Ka Lok admitted that he has already in tip top shape because at each shoot he was in full gear. However he was in uniform for the entire film and did not need to show his muscles. Even Eddie Peng Yu-Yan would not have the chance to flash any flesh. He also revealed that the team will shoot an underwater scene in Mexico later, at the studio where TITANIC was shot. Ka Lok reiterated that he and Jeannie Chan Ying did not avoid each other during a photo opportunity at a charity event. "I just want to leave some freshness for the audience, wee will shoot a promotional video together today. (Would you publicize your romance during the promotion?) No romance! We are just friends."

Mainland actor Hu Ge completed the Hong Kong run of HAMLET. Two nights ago a celebration was held. Brigitte Lin (Lam Ching Ha), Carina Lau Ka Ling, Rosamund Kwan Chi Lam, Kenny Bee (Chung Chun To) attended. Lau Ka Ling revealed that she would like to work behind the scenes and plan for an all Asian hunk version of OCEAN'S ELEVEN. The idea came from Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Takuya Kimura's photo in Japan earlier.

Lau King Ling as her husband Leung Chiu Wai's manager would like to find some jobs that would excite him soon. "He didn't feel any of the choices are good enough, in other words I am not working hard enough." She reveals that she would like to work behind the scenes. "I hope I can gather a very strong team for an Asian version of OCEAN'S ELEVEN with Asia's coolest actors. Wai Jai earlier in Japan ran into Takuya Kimura and took a photo together, which inspired this idea of mine. Kimura of course is on the list, as well as Korean, Taiwan and Mainland actors. I already have a list in mind, but first I have to find someone to write the script before deciding."

She stressed that she would take a role in the film. The idea would be all male, with at most a top beauty. "I am a beauty ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Kay Tse On Kay and Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) yesterday morning attended the Cycle For Millions 2019 event as ambassadors. They were dressed like cyclists, but Kay did not have enough time to train so this year she would not participate.

Siu Chai earlier participated in a charity race. Yesterday morning he started the Cycle For Millions event. He said, "After the run I felt muscle soreness. The doctor told me after gaining weight early I lost weight too fast, which led to muscle loss. I would lack calcium and potassium, earlier when I ran I showed signs of cramping. So I didn't dare to run too fast. Now I would keep aerobic exercises two or three times a week to get into shape."

Siu Chai had a part in the film PAO MA. Earlier because director Doze Niu was accused of sexual assault and the production was halted. Recently the film was rumored to have a chance to resume production, would Siu Chai need to gain weight for the film again? He said that he was not sure but would have to maintain the sloppy look for the film. He said, "My wife complained about it, for this film I didn't cut my hair or shave for a year. During the shoot I couldn't wash my hair, I couldn't remember for how many days. I only knew it stank. I also had to have betel nut until I was sick of it and my teeth .....

The 64 year old Elaine Jin (Kam Yin Ling) yesterday appeared on her "close friend" So Sze Wong's radio program. She confirmed that early this year she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She had the operation on the Lunar 5th. Because the tumor was too aggressive, she needed radiation and chemotherapy.

Kam Yin Ling said, "My daughter came back to visit me before the Lunar New Year. We had to get a pap smear together and I was diagnosed with negative cells. My daughter left Hong Kong on the 27th, and on the 28th the nurse urged me to call the doctor and said that my report was iffy. On the 30th when I went to see the doctor, he told me that I had a 90% that it was cervical cancer. Because I couldn't take the pain I had a detailed examination. In the end I had to go to the hospital and go completely under for the surgery. When I was released it was the 28th before the Lunar New Year. I even tearfully dyed my grey hair, even if I was sick I had to be pretty for the New Year. At first the doctor said that they would decide on whether they could do minimal invasion surgery depending on the report, but unfortunately the doctor said that we couldn't On the Lunar 3rd I went to the hospital, on the Lunar 4th I had the endoscopy .....

Teresa Mo Shun Kwan earlier was the first guest of the Emperor Group, the Hong Kong Beijing Exchange Association and others organized youth film training course, "Beijing Hong Kong Film Exchange". Sister Mo got along with the students. She encouraged students to take advantage of every chance to perform and revealed that she would like to perform an "older woman, young man" relationship with Mainland actor Hu Ge.

Speaking of Sister Mo's classic film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL (GA YAU HEI SI), a student was able to recite her character's lines perfectly and the entire audience cracked up. Sister Mo said that the most important in comedy was rhythm and reaction, anything too early or too slow would affect the audience's spot for laughter.

She also urged students to take advantage of each opportunity to perform, because you would never know when your benefactor would appear. She cited an example and said that her TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY (WONG GUM FA) co-star Ling Man Lung, who got the chance only because Sister Mo by chance saw him as a supporting player in a play. In the play the 30 year old played a teenage student and was still very natural and memorable. Thus she recommended Ling Man Lung to the director to play her son.

After 40 years in the business, she only won Best Actress last year. However Sister Mo said that this was the right time. "If ten years ago I had to make TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY, my daughters weren't that old yet. I ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Stephen Tang Lai Yan, her old flame Alex Fong Lik Sun, Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) yesterday morning attended the 7th Race For Water. Edmond Leung Hon Man was absent due to illness. Tang Lai Yan and Fong Lik Sun kept their distance and did not pose for photos together. According to earlier online information they would be named as this year's Hong Kong Film Award hosts, but the event then denied the rumor. Tang Lai Yan said that when she first heard about it she thought it was strange. Many friends asked her about it and she believed the Hong Kong Film Award would not make such an arrangement. She also said that she and Fong Lik Sun would have many opportunities to work together, so they would feel awkward.

Fong Lik Sun was unable to participate in the race due to a leg injury. He had to wear a brace and stop exercising. As for the rumor that he and Tang Lai Yan would host the Hong Kong Film Award, he said ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin two nights ago attended three audience appreciation events for her film THE LADY IMPROPER (FEI FUN SHOOK NUI). She joked that she spared no effort for the box office. She said that fortunately this film's title had no number, unlike last time when she went to 77 audience appreciation events for 77 HEARTBREAKS (YUEN LEUNG TA 77 CHI). Did she feel exhausted from audience appreciation? Ah Sa said that audience appreciation is popular now, she would even thank just one viewer. Ah Sa said that this film's box office would already be covered if it was able to have more Hong Kong Film Development Fund allocation, since this was not a commercial film. She also revealed that this time her salary was only a little more than for SARA (CHOR GEI), because the film production budget was limited she was just helping the new director to have even more resources for film post production work. Has she worked on a film for free? She said, "Sometimes when I guest starred I would get HK$ 100 for transportation, actually it doesn't matter. Making movies isn't a money making tool." Has her boyfriend seen the film already? Ah Sa said, "Not yet, I haven't kept him from it. I kept an open mind. If he wants to watch he can. (Would you watch the movie with him?) If he asks I would."
