She said, "I want to make more small budget productions, films that reflect social problems. I hope the audience will be able to relate to them."

Yu Heung Yi also said that she had to learn to relax. "I am very tense personally. Sometimes after a scene, I would feel that my performance wasn't too great. I would keep thinking about it over and over, leading to insomnia all night. Thus emotional problems appeared and hormones were out of balance. Last year I learned that I had early stage ovarian cyst, so in the New Year I have to learn to release my emotions." She revealed that she would take a holiday to rest and in April she would make two new films.

Yu Heung Yi's buddy Liew Chi Yu joked that every year's New Spring she hoped to quit drinking cold beverage, sleeping late, being late and other bad habits, but in the end she was unable to fulfill them. In the Year of the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Ron, who was beside him, expressed that everything depended on Michael's decision, and said that [he] was certainly happy to film while playing.

Raymond did not talk about marriage matters, unless he has kept it very hidden and did not say it to us. (Will be a groomsman when he gets married in the future?) I want to be a page boy.

Stephen Chow Sing Chi's movies have brought everyone endless joy. As a director he was a "tyrant" about his actors' performance. In the latest NEW KING OF COMEDY special "Director's Rage", director Chow Sing Chi displayed how strict he was about the details of the film and actors. At the time the video also showed a walk on the waves poster, as Wang Baoqiang, Vin E Jingwen and others put on funny costumes and walked on the waves in AN ACTOR PREPARES with bold spirit.

Sing Yeh said, "You don't look right at all, what are you doing?" On the KING OF COMEDY set, Sing Yeh had to turn every actor upside down and inside out for honing. When anyone's performance did not meet Sing Yeh's demands, he shook his head, pouted and buried his face into his hands to express his displeasure. Sing Yeh did not show any mercy for even the actor's speaking tone or even a single word of "oh". In the special, lead actress E Jingwen was baffled once. "Wasn't that a good take? We still need another one." Sing Yeh asked E Jingwen, "Do you want to continue or just leave it like this?" E Jingwen said, "Because this is Chow Sing Chi's movie, I have to perform Chow Sing Chi's style." Each actor under Sing Yeh's strict demands achieved their best.

Although the special showed Sing Yeh "hammering" the actors and the continuously suffering the actors had during the shoot, but after meeting the director's demands in the end they were still able to ge Sing Yeh's recognition.

DaDa revealed that the director has already agreed to take the cast to skiing in Hokkaido if the film would reach HK$ 25 million at the box office. He would even personally teach skiing, but she would get another instructor. DaDa said that she was confident about reaching the goal and has already begun to start talking about the trip on her "nosy bitches" group. If they could not reach the goal, she would pay for her own ski trip. Thus she has been working hard on audience appreciation events.

DaDa was dressed in black because of water weight, which she said was in preparation for her new film. She said, "I haven't exercised in two months, after the Lunar New Year I will get back into shape. The new film would require me to gain 10 pounds first in a month then lose 20 pounds. I .....

Andrew Lam Man Chung, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Xenia Chong Shui Yi two nights ago attended an audience appreciation event for their Lunar New Year film A LIFETIME TREASURE (YU JU YU BO). Ah Chung said that his film has been postponed for production in Guizhou in March, thus he was able to participate in recent audience appreciation events and the premiere. He was also able to stay in Hong Kong for the New Year with his wife and children. "Aside from being able to stay in Hong Kong for a commercial, I can even pay New Year visits and go to the New Year Market with my family."

Because he would have to stay two to three months in the Mainland for his film, he was reluctant to be apart from his wife and children. "I have been quite conflicted. Because my relationship with my daughter is great, she always wants to play with me. I am afraid that when I come back I would have to start over. So now I have never too far from her, I am going heavy in hopes that the relationship foundation would still be there." Would this be the longest he would be away from his daughter? He said, "Don't mention it, I had to consider it for a very long time because the script would be worth making. My wife may bring the kids to visit the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Alex Fong Lik Sun and Ivana Wong Yuen Chi have worked together countless times in film. In the Lunar New Year film I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! they challenged a musical film for the first time. Although they both started as singers and only worked together on one of the vignettes, they were fully prepared before hand. Siu Fong said that although he was paid for the film, he was not for the recording before!

Fong Lik Sun and Wong Yuen Chi with their singing background should have an easier time with the Lunar New Year musical film I LOVE YOU's performance, but both admitted that it was not easy at all. A musical style film was completely different from pure singing. Siu Fong said, "I only performed in one of the vignettes, but took a whole day to record before hand. I got paid by the day for the film production, but not for the recording. However I still admire Cho Lam's determination to make a musical film, truly he needed a lot of passion to be able to get it done."

Siu Fong stated that he was very surprised to learn that Wong Cho Lam would make a musical film. He did not understand why he would choose such an alternative genre. later he realized that with his Performing Art Academy background Wong wanted to bring the exaggerated stage comedy feeling to the audience. Wong Yuen Chi also said, "I know Cho Lam spent 2 years to negotiate the script rights in the U.S. I watched him overcome ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

DaDa even became the target of the director and Chan Woon Yan's pranks, completely oblivious to the two sticking many film stickers on her back.

DaDa said that during the New Year she had to full promote the film and attend audience appreciation events, thus she could not take time off. "Originally every New Year I would return to Shanghai to visit family. This year I probably won't go until after the New Year. During this period I have to work hard on promoting the film." She also revealed that after the event she and Sister Yam Yam would visit 5 cinemas for audience appreciation events. At the ones she went to earlier she saw great reaction from the audience. She was not afraid of how difficult they might be, as an actor she should do something for the movie. Was she worried about the box office being thinned out due to numerous Lunar New Year film releases at the same time? DaDa said, "A full bloom is something joyous. Of course I hope my movie would win out. Actually having so many movies is good for the audience. I will watch ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Avenue of Stars recently opened again and the Anita Mui Yim Fong statue was moved to its new location, next to it was the Andy Lau Tak Wa calligraphy plaque "Hong Kong Daughter Mui Yim Fong" for tourists and Mui fans to take photos with. Around 30 Mui Nation directors and fans two nights ago presented flowers and sang at their idol's statue with the film DEAREST ANITA...'s director Pako Leung Pak Ho, actor Paris Wong Wing Kit and Yuki Fong Wai Ying. They even sang WOMAN OF SONG to salute her.

Leung Pak Ho at first praised Sister Mui's statue location for having the Victoria Harbor scenery behind it, later he realized that the public restroom was directly across from it. He said, "The arrangement is a little special, imperfect. (Did the government arrangement not pay enough attention to details?) I don't know how the authority handled it, but overall it's OK, with the flowing water design like her song YEARS FLOW LIKE WATER. Originally I wanted to use the song for the movie theme song, but due to copyright issue and another film's previous usage I changed her mind. I hope to have a chance to make movies about Sister Mui, express different sides of her. Aside from how amazing her on stage singing and dancing were, she also cared about the community and loved her fans. Through real stories Mui Fans would be able to learn more about their idol; unfortunately it would require ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
