[2017.03.30] JACKIE CHAN CHANGES LYRICS AND MAKES GUESTS CRY



courtesy of on.cc

Jackie Chan last year received the Lifetime Achievement Oscar. Two nights ago Emperor boss Albert Yeung Sau Sing held a celebration. Jackie Chan thus caught up with friends of several decades. He also personally edited a video to thank everyone. He and his wife Joan Lin rewrote the lyrics in the videos and moved 70% the guests to tears. Friends even promised to meet once every year.

Jackie Chan and Yeung Sau Sing left around 11PM. Jackie Chan revealed that he made a video to thank everyone. "It's my own song. Actually it was for the Jackie Chan Stuntman Association's 40th anniversary. I changed the lyrics, then Sister Giu (wife Joan Lin) changed them again. Today everyone was very touched from hearing it because all the friends have known each other for 35 if not 40 years. The most regrettable is Willie Chan is ailing and unable to attend. At the dinner, they suggested that show business has to get together once whether anyone wins an award or not. Next year maybe Ms. Fong (Mona Fong Yat Wa) and (Peter) Lam Ngok Kin will organize it." Jackie Chan also said that originally this time would raise fund for show business, but due to the tight schedule they were unable to.

Eric Tsang Chi Wai was the host. When he left he was still sober. He said, "I have to go to the airport right away, I have to fly to make Chin Kar Lok's movie." Speaking of the evening, Chi Wai said, "It's very touching, 70% of the people cried. I cried very early on because three videos were shown. The first was Jackie Chan's charity work over the years. The second was foreigners' praises of his Oscar. The third was Jackie Chan's personal edit to thank the guests. He isn't glorifying his individual contribution. What touches me the most is such a famous artist is willing to use the remaining time to do something that influences the entire world and community, for more people to know Hong Kong, China, kung fu and Chinese people. Over the past 30 years he has been to countless places, done a lot of charity work, promoted kung fu, built many schools, scholarships, including the Performing Art Academy and Lingnan University. He did everything in a low key manner, he never talked about how great he was. He kept silently contributing. Jackie Chan and I grew up together. Because he was called Big Nose, I used to call him 'Nose'. Yet after watching this video I called him 'Big Brother' because he has never stopped doing good deeds."

Lam Suet yesterday promoted his ViuTV music program on the radio. Lam Suet earlier due to high blood pressure fainted on the set and was sent to the hospital. He revealed that currently his health was fine. Perhaps sometimes he worked too hard. He often flew all over and went to work as soon as he got off the plane. As an actor he worked when he had work. Sometimes he would take more time to rest. No one would tell you when you would rest until. Lam Suet planned to lose weight. He felt that he was clumsier and clumsier. His health problem also worried his family. He said, "I have been losing weight, I am already skipping breakfast and lunch. I only have dinner and the late night snack, but instead of losing weight I gained 8 pounds."

For the Hong Kong Film Award, Lam Suet would be working overseas and might not be able to attend. He said, "Even if I don't win I still want to get together with everyone and have a little fun; but if I go, the production would not be happy."

Turning 63 on April 7th, Big Brother Jackie Chan earlier received the Lifetime Achievement Oscar. He was the first Chinese recipient in history. Big Brother's friends wanted to celebrate hs international award and held a celebration dinner last night. Many film industry luminaries like Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Jacky Cheung Hok Yau and Carina Lau Ka Ling attended to surprise Big Brother. However Big Brother's wife Joan Lin and son Jaycee Chan did not attend. He joked that they kept watching his acceptance earlier and were already bored of it!

Although he was the guest of honor, Bg Brother was the earliest to arrive. He complied with the media's request and appeared for an interview. Did his friend Albert Yeung Sau Sing organize this celebration for him? Jackie Chan said, "Yes, earlier from when I received the Oscar nomination to winning it, Mr. Yeung already kept congratulating me. I just wanted to keep a low profile so others wouldn't say I was showing off. So Mr. Yeung said that I kept turning him down with wanting to keep a low profile, this time I really couldn't turn him down."

Big Brother revealed that three people including Tsang Chi Wai started the event and asked Big Brother's friends in the business to attend. Many were friends he did not seen so often, perhaps after this time he might not see them for awhile. Thus using the Oscar as an excuse he actually wanted to see a group of old friends. He said, "I really don't know how many guests were invited. Everyone said they would be a surprise, but I knew already!"

Would his wife Joan Lin and son Jaycee Chan come? Big Brother said, "I didn't ask them to, earlier they watched the Oscars everyday. They are tired of it. I didn't bring the award as it is on display at the Beijing office. Later it will be stored at the Shanghai Jackie Chan museum." His friends actually "smuggled" the award to Hong Kong to surprise Big Brother.

Speaking of friends who rushed back from overseas like Lau Ka Ling and Nicholas Tse Ting, Big Brother said that he knew. Earlier when he saw director Teddy Chan Tak Sum, he played coy and told him he would not come. As for special segments at the dinner, Big Brother said, "None, thank you Mr. Yeung. He has been a good friend of mine for over 40 years. When I won he was happier than me. Since I came back for a few days for voice work this party came together." Did his wife and son congratulate him when the Lifetime Achievement Oscar was presented? Big Brother said, "No, they have always been very cool. Cho Ming didn't call to congratulate me, and I wouldn't be mad. Actually on the night of the award, I already had dinner with Stallone."

In addition, earlier at the Hong Kong AIDS Foundation charity dinner a woman donated US$ 300,000 to be in Jackie Chan and Stallone's movie. Big Brother said that he would arrange for her to be in a scene, maybe she would play a driver. He also invited her to attend the premieres in the U.S. and Beijing.

Recently Elaine Ng Yi Lei's daughter called the police and Ng Yi Lei was accused of felony intimidation. Jackie Chan was asked about the incident but he kept his smile. "What's up? What's up? Thank you everyone!" Then he went to the dinner.

Guests included Tsang Chi Wai, Jacky Cheung Hok Yau, Tse Ting Fung, Lau Ka Ling, Pansy Ho Chiu King, Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Shi Nansun, Yuen Biao, Mabel Cheung Yuen Ting, Philip Chan Yun Kin, John Shum Kin Fun, Benny Chan Muk Sing, Ann Hui On Wa, Raymond Chow Man Wai, Candy Yu On On, Tina Lau Tin Lan, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Heung Wa Keung, Leo Ku Kui Ke and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Yeung Sau Sing, Michelle Yim (Mai Suet), Michael Hui Koon Man, Ken Low Wai Kwong, Lam Kwok Bun, Tin Kai Man and others. Ken Hung Cheuk Lap, Adason Lo (Law Lik Wai), Angela Hui Ching Wan and Sherman Chung Shu Man were guest performers.

Cheung Hok Yau arrived alone around 6:45PM. When he stopped for media photos, reporters told him that Aaron Kwok Fu Sing will soon wed. Would Hok Yau congratulate him? Hok Yau said, "Of course I would, should I be mad at him instead? Actually it's about time!" What gift did Hok Yau bring for Jackie Chan? He said that Big Brother did not want any gift. Would he sing? Hok Yau said that he would not because he just returned from a Mainland tour. He came to congratulate him for a little then he would leave. Tomorrow he will return to the Mainland to continue his tour. Why was his wife May Lo not with him? Hok Yau said, "What happened, why did you ask that question? You know she wouldn't come, when have you seen she did?"

Wong Chau Sun congratulated Jackie Chan on the award. Did he admire Big Brother very much? Chau Sun said, "I should, he is so hard working, very amazing! Now I have to hurry and get in, to 'grab jobs' from the directors!"

Tse Ting Fung arrived at 7PM. He admitted that he did not prepare any gift but of course he was happy for Big Brother. Ting Fung said, "We are proud of him, for stepping on the international stage and accepting such a representative award." Was Big Brother his goal? Ting Fung said, "I am not even qualified to think about that!" Would he want a chance to work on Hollywood films? Ting Fung said, "I will leave that up to fate. We have a lot of good work too." He also said that he did not know what kind of performance the dinner would have. He would not sing.

Reporters said that earlier at the karaoke box his performance of BLUE RAIN was great. Ting Fung said, "I did braise pork belly Braised in Southern fermented tofu (blue rain homophone)." As for fans looking forward to his concerts, Ting Fung said, "I know, as soon as possible!"

[2017.03.29] RONALD CHENG IS NERVOUS ABOUT HOSTING THE HONG KONG FILM AWARDS

Ronald Cheng Chung Kei and Tracy Chu Chin Suet yesterday attended a mobile phone event. They took selfies with the guest in the audience. Ronald said that his photography skill was average. His first camera was one that used film from his grandfather. It already had 60 to 70 years of history. Because it was too old, it spent most of its time at repair. It still remains today and he will pass it on to his children with the ones that he bought on his own.

As this year's Hong Kong Film Award host, Ronald is already busy with the preparation. Because this time he would be solo and without others to back him up, he was rather nervous as he had to keep memorizing his lines and marks. He even had to handle the 8 minute opening performance, in which he will sing and dance. However he would not reveal any detail yet. Ronald joked that this time he would be a volunteer, thus he was the only host. His wife will attend but his children will not, as he will not look good if they will fall asleep.

The Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Shawn Yue Man Lok starred film LOVE OFF THE CUFF (CHUN GIU GAU JI MING) earlier released its official trailer. In the film Mainland actress Jiang Mengjie threw herself at Lok Jai and put Chin Wa and Lok Jai's relationship in jeopardy! Jiang Mengjie came to work on a movie in Hong Kong for the first time, coincidentally both she and Chin Wa had a beauty mark on their chest. The team did not discover this commonality until the shoot!

Chin Wa and Lok Jai were also very popular in Taiwan. Their new film even became the Taipei Golden Horse Fantastic Film Festival closing film. After 10 minutes of online sales, 700 seats were already sold out much to the surprise of the team!

In LOVE IN A PUFF (JI MING YU CHUN GIU), Miriam Yeung Chin Wa and Shawn Yue Man Lok worked on a scene on the Wai Yip Street pedestrian overpass in Kowloon Bay. The locale became a popular photo destination and the overpass was dubbed "Jimmy Bridge". However, some in order to get a shot from different angles dangerously climbed on top of the roof or sat outside the overpass. Pedestrians worried about their safety and called the police, adding to the burden of emergency services. Yesterday a firefighter posted on social media to urge people not to go there and take photos again.

Yue Man Lok replied to the "Jimmy Bridge" fatal photography. "There are many way to express your fondness for a movie. There is no problem with everyone liking this bridge. Actually we shot the movie on the bridge interior, so we hope that no one would stand on top of the roof. It's really very dangerous. If something happens just because you want a picture it is not worth it. Safety is the most important." Director Pang Ho Cheung said, "I hope no one would do anything dangerous, nothing is more important than life. It won't be good if you get hurt just for a picture, bother the firefighters. It won't be good if you turn into the Fire Department Saves Jimmy!"

The 36th Hong Kong Film Awards will take place on April 9th. Earlier the Best Actor and Best Actress nominees worked on the program. With Tiffany and Company's accessory, they turned nto magician to coordinate with this year's theme of Magic Moment to share the magic moment.

Best Actor nominees Francis Ng Chun Yu, Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai), Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Shawn Yue Man Lok and Tony Leung Ka Fai. Lam Ka Tung was the favorite as with TRIVISA (SHU DAI JIU FUNG) he has already won two Best Actor awards. He remembered a magic moment with jewelry when he gave it as a gift to his girlfriend. The most magical part was soon after that they broke up. He hoped to deliver what he felt through jewelry, although they have parted he believed that it would become an important memory between them.

Yue Man Lok with MAD WORLD (YUT LIM MO MNG) received his first Hong Kong Film award Best Actor nomination. He said that his memorable moment was when he gave a ring to his mother. Mama Yue is very thrifty and does not want to spend on jewelry. When she received the ring from Lok Jai, her happiness was Lok Jai's most valuable magic moment.

When Yam Yin Chai first got into the business he saved up to buy a diamond chain from Tiffany for himself. He still remembered the sense of satisfaction when he wore it, proving that his hard work and promoting him to continue to fight toward his next goal. Ng Chun Yu said that magicians like actors would have more sense of satisfaction from audience recognition than any award. The nomination to him was already a reward that was beyond what he imagined.

Best Actress nominees Nina Paw Hee Ching, Kara Wai Ying Hung, Zhou Dongyu, Ma Sichun and Tang Wei. Wai Ying Hung thought of an one karat diamond ring from her late mother. At the time she was not rich, her mother sold her own gold to buy the diamond ring for her. She has always kept it safe. When Mama passed away she thought of burying her with the ring, but she was reluctant to part with it. Since it represented Mama's love, HK$ 10 million would not be able to buy it back. Sister Bau said that everyone would encounter their own jade in their lives, as it would bring good luck. Later she did. As for Zhou Dongyu, she joked that she was a mad woman. Because of wonderful jewelry, a mad woman would become a goddess.
