Annie Liu (劉心悠) was filming ancient series, Deep in the Realm of Conscience (深宮計) at TVB City on 12 April and already started the filming for 2 months. When mentioned about Kenneth Ma (馬國明) filmed for long hours, Annie said: "He is the worst and nobody can break his record. My worst days are those days in Filmart and I sleep for few hours only." Asking if she was worried about her health, Annie replied she ate Chinese medicine to nourish her body due to irregular sleeping hours and felt fine until now. She added the filming was fun and the whole cast team resembles a family. The most challenging part was speaking in Cantonese: "I spoke in English especially filming for long hours at night and nobody understands me. Haha!" Annie admitted that she spent long hours to prepare the dialogue and read to her assistant once in order to prevent mistakes. Although her Cantonese improved in the last 2 months, but Annie preferred to film modern to ancient series next time.

At the press conference Chan Muk Sing stated this film's money was spent on the alien cat and spoke of the "price" behind the cat's cuteness. He said that his appearance took three of the best special effect companies and over 1,000 special effect shots. "So it costs a lot of money." However it was well worth the price because this alien cat "was no trouble at all. It would bring everyone a lot of joy."

Chan Muk Sing even revealed, the alien cat originally was a very fit "Meow Warrior", "in the end it became very fat."

Goo Jai said, "Because I have to take care of such a big cat, all of my money goes to feed it. In the end it becomes this fat."

This would be Goo Jai and Chan Muk Sing's 6th collaboration. Earlier when they worked together on ROB B HOOD (BO BUI GAI WAT), Goo Jai suggested for Chan Muk Sing to make a comedy. At the same time Chan Muk Sing felt that Goo Jai who was normally very cool was full of comedic potential within.

Ah Chung said that they started production on the movie last summer. In the heat they wore heavy costumes and ran on the streets. He joked that he and Bak Ji ran until their "faces were green and lips white". Bak Ji said that the rarest was the chance to work with Alex Man Chi Leung and Carrie Ng Ka Lai.
