Fama member Lok Wing and C Kwan, Michelle Wai Sze Nga and Barbie Liu (Ha Wai Yu) two nights ago attended their film SIU LUM JI (LAUGHTER FOREST TEMPLE) production wrap banquet. Wai Sze Nga joked that working with Fama was very tough. During the shoot they had many bad takes, so many that even she felt embarrassed. During the rehearsal she already could not stop laughing, every shot was funny. Fama also often improvised, leaving her in a very hard spot to follow. In one scene she had to hit Fama. Lok Wing said that Wai Sze Nga was completely uncoordinated for her fight scene. C Kwan joked that she was worse than Grandma. Many of the morning walk grandmas were better than Wai Sze Nga. He only fell for her beauty because he could not do much.
Ha Wai Yu said that she played obsessive and liked to feel up Young Fresh Meat. She constantly had to touch Lo Ho Yu and praised how firm his muscles were. She also said that she would gladly offer her services for any chance to work Young Fresh Mat. In a relationship for three years, she said that she still has not considered marriage. She would put happiness in life and work first.

As of two days ago it already accumulated HK$ 11,382,048 at the box office. Two nights ago the actors held a celebration. Ka Wing has often been accused of looking upset since he started in the business. Speaking of Miss Hong Kong candidate Yutori Kudo's incident, Ka Wing felt that no one could compare to himself as he had to look upset from the beginning to the end. Yet he would not look upset in front of his wife Grace Chan Hoi Lam, but he would only do so with people he disliked.
Chan Hoi Lam earlier was on the Miss Hong Kong judging panel, Ka Wing said that his wife's picks were all qualified. Did Grace mention about Yutori Kudo's "upset hea dance"? Ka Wing said, "No one can look more upset than me, I am the most famous for that. Can anyone be more known for that than me? (Yet you won't look upset on camera?) No, it would depend on my mood. It's not about being on camera or not. People who have known me for over 20 years would know. That night I didn't watch Miss Hong Kong, I didn't know whether she danced halfheartedly. Perhaps someone would say that I danced halfheartedly as well. Because I don't ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Jennifer Yu Heung Yi yesterday promoted her new song and movie theme song SUNNY on Commercial Radio. She revealed that she chose to release the song on school opening day to encourage students. She felt that everyone can have distinction. She claimed that she was very plain back then and took a "memorization" approach to studying. She said, "I would get a score of 18, but my A-Level scores were very poor. I couldn't get into the university, but Heaven would arrange for a path for you."
Speaking of her new film, Jennifer stated that in real life she did not have any puppy love in school uniform and felt a little regret; this time she even made a sacrifice for art as she appeared without make up. She even ate alot to create the baby fat look. She did not mind playing ugly because it was very challenging. When no one could recognize her she succeeded.

This time directing and writing is the Mainland direcor Wang Danyang, who worked hard to bring together the wo generations of Hei Bo. However because Lai Yin Shan was working on the series WONDER WOMEN, she did no have much time to participate. However Sister Shan would like to make a movie that connected the two generations. Thus she guest starred as Hei Bo's mother.
When two generations of Hei Bo Lai Yin Shan and Amber Kuo met, they had a very wonderful sense of familiarity like they have already known each other for a long time. Sister Shan said that she never expected to play Hei Bo 30 years ago and now she was playing Bo Ma. Luckily her appearance did not change much. When director Wang Danyang invited her, because of work she could not make time on her schedule. However she felt that few actors would have the chance to be in the same movie again 30 years later, it truly felt rare.
