Mui Yim Fong's mother and brother Mui Kai Ming yesterday announced the event to the media. Mother Mui got teary eyed as she recalled Ah Mui's life and still missed her beloved daughter now. Many said that she forced Ah Mui to sing. Mother Mui said, "Ah Mui had a talent for singing, and liked to sing. She wanted to learn to sing, dance and study Mandarin, she would even buy (Paula) Tsui Siu Fung and (Teresa) Teng Lai Kwan's records to listen to."

Mother Mui said that when Ah Mui performed in Las Vegas in 99, she was organizing an organization to fight cancer and did not go with her. Recently Kai Ming while going through Ah Mui's items found this concert and received support from friends everyhwere. Thus they used it to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Ah Mui's passing.

Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Cya Liu Seya and Zeno Koo Tin Hin yesterday attended their film I'M LIVING IT (MAK LO YUN)'s press conference at the 3rd Macau International Film Festival. The film was about a group of people who lacked family and made their home at a fast food restaurant.

Sing Sing said that when he promoted in Cannes, after reading the film synopsis from his manager Siu Mei he felt that he had to support this film. He said, "The society has forgotten many people. Through film we can get an understanding of their lives and hope to bring attention to them. The film gave me such a sense of duty. I was very focused during the shoot and felt that it was the best film in recent years."

Chin Wa worked with Sing Sing for the first time. Chin Wa in the film played a Temple Street music hall singer. She said that because Siu Mei invited she took the role, the schedule was very rushed but the script was great. The story about interpersonal relationship was very delicate, family was very close but could not communicate. Strangers could become family. Chin Wa said that after the shoot she would bring the down mood back home, luckily her son and husband were her alarm clocks as they were able to wake her up.

Artists Tsui Tin Yau, Hanjin Tan (Chan Woon Yun) and Yanki Din (Sister Turkey) yesterday attended a ViuTV program taping and promoted their Lunar New Year film MISSBEHAVIOR (GUNG HEI BAK POR). They all said that they played misbehaving people in the film. Tin Yau revealed that he would have an awkward scene. "Something that I would do in the morning between washing my face and brushing my teeth, I haven't tried it in a movie. However the scene was like deja vu! Other scenes would include taking off clothes, putting on clothes and helping Chan Woon Yan with his!" Chan Woon Yan said, "I help him with the draw string, he would take off his pants himself. In the film I played a misbehaving person, but in reality I am eight minus one, haha!"

Wong Cho Lam, Teresa Mo Shun Kwan and Ivana Wong Yuen Chi two nights ago at the ATV Tai Po Studio worked on additional shoots and poster for their Lunar New Year I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE! (NEI MAI LEI, NGOR OI NEI!). Cho Lam said that the post production schedule will be very intense because they would have to promote during Christmas. He also said that two nights ago when he saw Sister Mo he actually wanted to order 100 or so boxes of cookies from her for her daughter's hundred day banquet present. Yet he received a boastful reply, saying that cookies were already sold out and she was no longer taking orders. Cho Lam said, "If Sister Mo can bring this luck to our box office it would be great, I hope we too can say sorry, no more tickets because it's already sold out!" Sister Mo said that she thought about everyone would like this cookie, but she never expected it to be so popular. Everyday it was already sold out by 3 PM, aside from being happier she was constantly worried that she would not have enough. She wanted everyone to be able to eat some.

Cho Lam posted his daughter's ultrasound photo. She looked just like him. Sister Mo looked at Cho Lam and said with a smile, "Like you? That's pretty special!" Cho Lam answered, "I saw the resemblance in the ultrasound and I already was very scared, she's mine and I don't get ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Artist Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin, Pakho Chau, Candy Lo Hau Yam, Yumiko Cheng Hei Yi and J.Arie (Lui Sum Yu) are busy with the Emperor Motion Picture 77 HEARTWARMINGS (GUM DUNG TA 77 CHI). Yesterday Ah Sa posted a photo of her in a judge's wig on social media. "Actually this thing......it really doesn't look good no matter how I wear it." She even joked that her round face clashed with the shape of the wig, since she has already accepted that long ago she would not get Botox. Some online said that in the wig she looked like Wong Cho Lam.

Andy Lau Tak Wa's concert series will begin Saturday. Its organizer and Wa Ja's company Focus Group recently has been swept into a fraud case. Earlier many in black medical masks held up signs that said "Lau Tak Wa (Focus Group) Return My Hard Earned Money" and "Untrustworthy, unethical". Focus Group's general manager Chiu Suet Mui yesterday held a press conference with legal representation and issued a statement to clarify the absurd and untrue accusations.

According to Taiwan reports, Taiwan's JSM Entertainment accused Focus Group of terminating its Lau Tak Wa concert Hong Kong stop investor qualification and seized the investment amount that it paid in accordance to the agreement. It criticized Focus Group for suspected fraud and filed felony charges in Taiwan against Focus Group.

Focus Group's general manager Chiu Suet Mui admitted that the company and JSM signed an investment agreement for Lau Tak Wa's concert. It clearly stated that contract violating transfer fell under irreparably severe contract violation behavior. Rumors of JSM's contract violating transfer were often heard in the marketplace. In August Focus Group received confirming evidence of JSM's contract violating transfer of investment rights to a third party. When confronted, JSM admitted the contract violating right transfer and apologized. Focus Group after careful consideration officially notified JSM in writing of the collaboration termination and seized the investment amount in accordance of the agreement. Chiu Suet Mui said that JSM did not follow Focus Group's agreement termination decision and demanded to continue its investment in the Lau Tak ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Flora Chan and her husband, Mike Chung, recently produced the programme "After School", which is expected to broadcast on Hong Kong Open TV in the middle of next year. Today, they held a press conference in Central with General Manager of External Affairs Rebecca Tam, Executive Producer of Programme Planning Lau Pui Ching, and Consultant of External Affairs Tsang Sing Ming.

Flora revealed that the programme has 16 episodes, and will be interviewing 15 artistes from the '50s to the '90s, including Jessica Hsuan, Francis Ng, Myolie Wu, Charlie Young, Yim Ho, et al.: "The first one I looked for was Jessica. She is my good friend. I know that she would definitely support me. She studied in England; she will influence this group of people. Then I looked for Francis. He went from the Acting Class to becoming a father; everyone can see his transformation. He can also influence the people from his generation. At the time, he was filming 'Men on the Dragon'. He immediately came to look for me. The third one was Myolie, who was pregnant at the time. Thus, the process was quite long".

Flora said that there were two transitions in the decision to do this project this time: "Became a mother eleven years ago. I was quite advanced when I gave birth to my daughter. I feel that some things are better if I don't do them to the fullest. I did not know how to teach my daughter. When my daughter was five years old, was already doing homework with an iPad. I also did not know how to use it at the time; she was even better than I was. Oh no! I'm going to be out of touch with society, so ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

In MASTER Z: IP MAN LEGACY (IP MAN OI JUEN: CHEUNG TIN CHI), director Yuen Woo Ping designed a series of stunts for lead actor Max Zhang Jin to perform. Scenes like fighting a foreign actor on a sign filled street were tailored for him. Yet Lord Eight stated that the ability to fight was the most basic rule, aside from fighting he also required "acting" to coordinate with the performance. Thus this time he featured the Wing Chun kicks, a variation and improvement from Ip Man's kung fu style. It took the best and added a little power for the display.

Did Lord Eight stump Zhang Jin? Zhang Jin said that if they were shooting in place that were too high they could use green screen, but this time they shot at 4 or 5 stories tall actual locations. "In the film I had to run around, but I had wires to coordinate. Only I had to overcome my fear of heights. Some asked me to try it first, I said no. As soon as action was called I went!"

In another scene with a foreign actor, Zhang Jin said that he was big. He ended up taking a beating. Speaking of being a stunt double in CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN TIGER and working with Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King) again this time, he said, "Destiny is very wonderful, running into each other again years .....

Jessica Hester Hsuan (Suen Huen) yeserday attended a cosmetic event with an injury. She revealed that earlier she fell down the stairs as she was looking at her phone. Luckily someone helped her to see a Chinese medical practitioner. Due to work she was unable to stop and rest.

Suen Huen last month will begin work on the film BACK TO THE PAST (CHUM CHUN GEI) in Guizhou. She revealed that she already knew what the story would be about and did not know whether she would have any fight scene. She would be able to handle hand to hand combat, but she was the most concerned about having running scenes. She gained weight earlier from her trip to Tasmania, but due to her injury she would not be able to exercise. She would only lose weight from dieting.
