Louisa So Yuk Wa and boyfriend Poon Chan Leung, Teresa Mo Shun Kwan and others two nights ago attended a skin care product event.

Although he did not win the Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor, Poon Chan Leung said that he had Ah So's "kisses" to make up for it. He was not unhappy. "As early as 21 years ago THE MAD PHOENIX (NAM HOI SUP SAM LONG) got me a Supporting Actor nomination, but I regretted not attending. This time was like having fun at a theme park for a night." Ah So said, "I am probably the happiest, earlier we went on a double date dinner with Yuen Fu Wa. We stated that whoever won would pay for dinner, so we got a meal out of it." When would they get married? Ah So said that Yuen Fu Wa suggested for them to have a double wedding, but Poon Chan Leung felt that separating them into two fun days would be even better. Actually they already had plans long ago. ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film about China women's national volleyball team two days ago held a launch ceremony at the China women's national volleyball training center in Zhangzhou, Fujian. Aside from director Peter Chan Ho Sun, China women's national volleyball team head coach Lang Ping, former China women's national volleyball team head coach Chen Zhonghe, other guests included the national sports, film and art ministry officials, athletes Zhang Changning and Liu Xiaotong attended as well. Director Chan said that China women's volleyball may not guarantee victory but it has to take risk. From coaches Yuan Weimin to Chen Zhonghe and Lang Ping they all took risks. He hoped that this film would show the audience the women's volleyball risk taking spirit that he understands.

At the event, Director Chan Ho Sun spoke about watching his first China women's volleyball match at the 1978 Asia Games in Bangkok. He was 16 at the time, it was also Lang Ping's first overseas competition. When Team China appeared the hot blooded atmosphere was still memorable to him today. He never would have imagined that now he would be able to personally adapt the China women's volleyball story to the silver screen. The release would be in 2020 when the Tokyo Olympic Games would take place. He hoped through the film to cheer on the China women's volleyball team in preparation for the Tokyo Games.

Director Chan Ho Sun even presented an autographed copy of the first film poster to the China women's national volleyball team. On the poster was a close up shot of a well worn white volleyball ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Owen Cheung Chun Long, Benjamin Yuen Man Kit two nights ago were guests on the Liza Wang Ming Chuen game show LIZA'S ONLINE.

Speaking of her reunion with former co-star Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho) at the Hong Kong Film Awards, Chin Wa was surprised. "A few days ago I just texted him, originally I planned to visit him during my U.S. tour because I have never seen his daughter. I didn't expect him to appear backstage at the award show. I was very happy. We met when we were younger, but only chatted a little before our appearance."

Ng Yin Cho reunited with GEN X COPS (DUT GAING SUN YUN LUI)'s Stephen Fung Tak Lun, Nicholas Tse Ting and Sam Lee Chan Sam. Chin Wa said that the scene was moving and hoped that he would be able to return to Hong Kong to make movies. "He holds a place in Hong Kong films. I wouldn't mind working with him again, but first we will have to find a script and investors."

Ah Jeh heard that the program response was good, which was rather gratifying. Her husband Law Kar Ying was recovering at home. Did she play games with Brother Kar Ying to keep him entertained? Ah Jeh said, "I mainly take care of his three meals, I would go on walks with him and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

He also revealed that Benny Chan Muk Sing after RAGING FIRE (NO FOR) will begin to work on this film. Would they reduce their salaries? He joked, "Don't bring up this subject."

The Chief Executive yesterday announced new Mainland policy that would loosen restrictions on Hong Kong films, hinting that Hong Kong filmmakers would have even more creative space and freedom. Aaron Kwok Fu Sing praised the move for being able to provide Hong Kong films with more opportunities to be enjoyed in the Mainland. It would also help the Hong Kong film industry even more. "I wish Hong Kong film colleagues will remain united and work hard, not only to enable Hong Kong films to be seen in the Mainland but in the entire world!"

Recently working in the Mainland, Pierre Ngo Ka Nin felt that the policy woud not be better. Because in the past Hong Kong film actors and crew members did not have many choices when working in the Mainland. Aside from feature characters, they could not participate in third or fourth tier characters. Finding opportunity in the Mainland was difficult unless the identity card was turned into a Mainland one. Thus he was very happy to hear this news. As for the ability to participate in Mainland film awards like the Golden Rooster Hundred Flower Awards, Ka Nin said that this was an encouragement for Hong Kong filmmakers. Because for now only film restriction policy would be changtes, Ka Nin hoped that in the future Central would loosen television series policy as well so more Hong Kong actors and behind the scene workers would benefit.

Actor Ron Ng Cheuk Hei revealed that this move would be good for all actors. Cheuk Hei said, "When a film or a television series ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Louis Koo Tin Lok, Raymond Lam Fung, Chrissie Chau Sau Na and others starred in the film P STORM (P FUNG BO), which after ten days in release became a hit in the Mainland and Hong Kong. At the Mainland box office it made 600 million yuan RMB, and at the Hong Kong box office it already made HK$ 12 million. Yesterday boss and producer Raymond Wong Pak Ming held a celebration luncheon. Goo Jai revealed that he did not ask for bonuses when he made movies and did not need any, as he only wanted to improve the Hong Kong film market. Lam Fung's debut as a villain had great audience response, which he said made him feel a little better.

The P STORM box office performance greatly surprised Lam Fung because he has not made a movie in awhile. Goo Jai also opened up a new role for him as he played a villain for the first time, which also was the fruit of everyone's labor. Did he have a shot of confidence? Lam Fung said, "I am a little more comfortable." He also said that in BACK TO THE PAST he would have a lot of action scenes, which would be weight loss exercises for him.

Lately Hubert Wu Hung Kwan was rumored to have become arrogant and claim to sing better than Lam Fung, which led to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Teresa Mo Shun Kwan yesterday attended a Heep Hong Society's Great Chefs event press conference and brought public attention to special need children. Sister Mo even decorated cakes with children.

Sister Mo two nights ago attended the Hong Kong Film Award and online comments claimed that she was ten years young and looked like Nancy Wu Ting Yan. Sister Mo happily said, "If I looked like Wu Ting Yan then I would be younger more than just ten years. I have to thank the make up artist and the hairstylist, and the clothing, it was a team effort to turn me into another fresh and clean image." Sister Mo presented Best Actress with Nina Paw Hee Ching and Kara Wai Ying Hung. Their great exchanges brought the show to its climax. Sister Mo said, "I changed the script a little. Originally I wanted to make big changes, but Chair Yee Tung Sing reminded us not to make excessive changes. Because they had to coordinate with sign language and translation, big changes would be hard to follow. Thus he asked me not to improvise too outrageously. I could only make some minor changes to the script."

"I have to praise Hong Kong Film Award Chair Yee Tung Sing, the pace of the show was very smooth. He personally trained 32 young new comers to host and perform. At first I was worried that they would have stage fright. Although they were a little nervous they did ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

After the 38th Hong Kong Film Awards ended, the fresh out of the oven Best Actor Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Best Actress Chloe Maayan went to two celebrations. The third time Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor Chau Sun admitted that he could not be happier with this award. He felt that actually he had the support of many friends, only that because he went out less so he thought he had few friends. "I feel like Rocky getting to his victory in the end, but people have to be more humble. This time is the effort of the director and everyone in the crew to make the entire thing happen."

Would he continue to make movies for no salary after the award? Chau Sun joked, "Jinx, of course everyone will get rich and everyone will get paid! I just talked about government financial assistance for film production. Although HK$ 3 million isn't enough, I haven't been paid yet. I want the movie to make a little so I would get paid!" He already had the award in his hands. Chau Sun said, "I would sell the award to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
