Sandra Ng Kwan Yu yesterday led the film 12 GOLDEN DUCKS (12 GUM NGAP)'s actors Louis Koo Tin Lok, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung and BabyJohn Choi Hong Yik to promote in Causeway Bay. They even had two male models in only boxers to give away lucky bags to pedestrians for an advanced Lunar New Year atmosphere; Goo Jai in the film again worked with his "Goo Goo" from 16 years ago, Carman Lee Yeuk Tung.

Kwan Yu said that on February 13 at the Victoria Park Lunar New Year Fair she will set up a "duck shop" stall to sell lucky bags for charity. She will personally make an appearance and supervise. She said, "This year I spent several hundred thousand for a Victoria Park stall bid. Even if the stall will not be the prettiest one there, it will be the most golden stall! In our lucky bags will be boxer and tea bag, not that type for wearing but for drinking. After drinking this tea you will feel energized. I already saved some for Father (Ha Chun Chau). He needs it as he is in his 80s."

In addition, after 15 years, Goo Jai in the film will work with Lee Yeuk Tung again. How did the THE RETURN OF THE CONDOR HEROES reunion feel? He said, "We haven't seen each other for over a decade, we haven't even run into each other at public events. We only ran into each other once on a plane. I believe many people are looking forward to it. She doesn't look a day older even after 16 years." Kwan Yu said that they were both single. She once jokingly asked Lee Yeuk Tung if they had any spark from working together again. She said that Goo Jai did not look a day older after 16 years either, he was still hiding in the corner by himself. Was she afraid of further rumors and thus did not arrange for Michelle Chen and Goo Jai to have any scene together? Kwan Yu said, "Of course not, but everyone wants to see 'Goo Goo' and 'Gor Yi' more. (Are you afraid that the audience won't like Michelle Chen's chubby cheeks?) Don't say that, she is very pretty. In the film she is my goddess, girlfriend."

As for Si Hing he said that he will help with the Victoria Park supervision. Will he wear only Boxers? He said, "Kwan Yu earlier kept telling us to lose weight, but I didn't have to take off my clothes in the entire film. Let's see if I will have a chance at the New Year Fair. (Will you ask Joey (Yung Cho Yi) to go with you?) No, that's too old fashioned. Having several of us "boyfriends" to watch the shop is enough, we can take shifts." He also denied that Joey only agreed to guest star because of him. He also said that he did not help bring together Joey to be the Miriam Yeung Chin Wa's concert guest. He said, "I am Lau Ho Lung, not the middle man." Joey revealed that she really wanted to find a good home, Si Hing said that for now work has to come first.

Raymond Wong Pak Ming and his son Edmond Wong Chi Wun appeared on a Cable program. Wong Chi Wun swore to become a screen writer like his father. Although his father was very busy, their relationship has not been damaged. They were so close that they could talk about anything. Wong Chi Wun not only was a screen writer but also helped his father with the company businesses. Did Wong Pak Ming see his son as a successor? He admitted that he really wanted his son to inherit his film business. The company name Pegasus was connected to his son. His son was born in the Year of the Horse and people in the film industry had to think like a flying horse in the sky. Chi Wun only smiled and instead said that he was introverted and not suitable for social gathering. At most he would only have dinner and chat with directors and actors.

Speaking of his relationship with his father, Chi Wun described it like a friendship. He really appreciated his father's optimism, as he has never seen him get mad, yell at anyone or have anything bad to say about anyone. He also pointed out that he once felt the pressure of being Wong Pak Ming's son, but he would keep working hard and fight for good performance in order to get his father's approval. In Chi Wun's heart, his father absolutely was a good role model, in particular his unwavering love for his wife. Chi Wun said that the impression was very deep. "Papa's behavior is quite an inspiration for me in terms of marriage, at least I have to be as thoughtful as him. Actually he has a lot of excessive behavior that he has not talked about. For example one time Mama had horrible stomach pain and Papa said that he had to help her with Qi Gong. Actually he only rub his hands together to heat them up then touch her so she would not be in as much pain.
