Bob Lam Sing Bun, Don Li Yat Long and Raymond Chiu Wing Hung starred in the film KONG WU SAM SOR (THREE MOB IDIOTS) yesterday held a production start ceremony in Lei Yue Mun. The film's investor Milla Ching Chi Yu said that this was the first shot, the investment was around HK$ 2 million because actor salaries were very expensive.

The lead actors dressed in "VIP on top, showing off below" fashion. In the film the trio originally was Wise Guys but stumbled their way into becoming gigolos. Bob revealed that Don was the happiest as he would have a love scene with Wong Ha Wai. Don said, "Before signing the contract I didn't know that I would have a love scene with Aunt Ha Wai. After I found out I wanted to give the money back to the company, because I would do a love scene with Ha Wai BB for free. In my heart 100 girls can't compare to Aunt Ha Wai." He also joked that he would share with his brothers, Chiu Wing Hung would get the kiss and Bob the bed scene. He would just watch from the bedside. After the photo opportunity, Bob again pushed Don to Aunt Ha Wai and told her to kiss Don. Don pretended to enjoy it. Bob was also lucky in the film as several pseudo models would feel him up. Bob said, "They would miss the important area, the important area is left for the old lady to feel."

Joe Lam Jok yesterday attended his first film production ceremony start. He got shy around Gloria Wong Yung and Yumi Wan Chun Hei. Finally the two girls took him by the shoulder for a photo. Lam Jok revealed that in the film he would guest star as a writer. Was this his first time? Lam Jok joked, "Do you have to call it that?" He said that he was not used to having his hair done. Would he need to be slapped in the film? He said, "I haven't read the script yet, it shouldn't be too difficult. I am not the one doing the slapping. (Does Mommy allow?) She probably wants me to make something of myself, so she isn't afraid of any sacrifice I make. I don't have to worry about her." As for his bottom line, he denied that he said that he would accept nude performance. It would depend on his co-star and a lot of factors. Would the co-star be Louisa Mak Ming Sze? He avoided the subject. "Don't say anything more, as soon as we talk about her there would be a lot of ripples." Some claimed that he took advantage of his former girlfriend's comments . Mak Ming Sze replied that as long as it was not physical she was fine. Lam Jok said that he read about it but had no comment.

He also said that no one told him that the film would have so many pretty girls. As far as he knew he would not have any intimate interaction with the actresses. "I should've asked. I wouldn't fought for it. (Were you not afraid that your professional attorney image would be affected?) It was just talk." As for salary, he said that talking about money would very easy make people react. Thus he did not talk about money, as he hoped for a chance to develop a little. He also revealed that he was in negotiation for his next film and would make an announcement when the time would be right.

Wong Yung looked thinner. She explained that because she wanted to try a fitness contest so earlier she kept working out. Her weight has dropped to 90 pounds and she dropped a cup size. She had to new underwear. She also revealed that in the film she would not have any scene with Lam Jok. She mainly would seduce Bob and have physical contact with him. "I would touch him all over, (including the important part?) The story didn't require it, but I want to......the important part I am referring to is his face."

Artist Venus Wong Man Yik, Edward Ma Chi Wai and others two nights ago attended their new film TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE (CHOR LUEN YUT GEI: JIK NAM MUK YAU)'s premiere. Venus admitted that she did not need to ask her boyfriend Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung's opinion about being sexy. "He isn't in Hong Kong, he hasn't even sent a message of encouragement to me. I am too busy to mind! (Did you look over what you are wearing?) I don't have this habit. I always tell him, if LUST, CAUTION asks me to play Tang Wei's role, do I or not? He says, 'You do!' (There is nudity!) He says with a good script he won't make a sound. He will understand! I have to see if I get over myself and have to talk with the company. (Does your boyfriend want to play Tony Leung Chiu Wai's role?) If he gets to be Leung Chiu Wai, he won't even care who will play Tang Wei!"

Ma Chi Wai said, "In the film I have a lot of intimate scenes with Venus. I thank her for her trust. (Do you thank Tsang Kwok Cheung for his trust in you as well?) Sorry, I didn't pay him any attention."

Comedy actress Lo Fun (originally named Cheung Wai Fun) passed away at age 63 from dermatomyositis caused lung failure. Services began yesterday at the Universal Funeral Parlor. The funeral ceremony will be Buddhist. The remains will be transported to Diamond Hill Crematorium for cremation.

Lo Fun's family including her brother and sister, nephew, niece and family and friends from Shanghai attended. Nephew Cheung Yuk Lun and niece Cheung Yuet Ling spoke to the media. Did Lo Fun's family sing to her on her dead bed. Her niece nodded. "When it was almost time, we sang her favorite LIGHT OF FRIENDSHIP. She waited until we finished the entire song before passing!"

Her niece said that Lo Fun was optimistic and often taught them to never do anything halfway and never give up. Her motto was a happy life. Thus the memorial program also used her motto as the theme. Her niece said, "When she was ill she was always very optimistic, she instead comforted us!"

Lo Fun's altar was decorated in elegant white. Her family chose her life photo for the final photo, and white lilies surrounded it. In the memorial special that was shown, Lo Fun after a performance on the stage said, "Call my name, I am leaving!" Then her song LIGHT OF FRIENDSHIP was played.

Friends in the business sent floral arrangements. They included Eric Tsang Chi Wai, his wife and family, Korean star Lee Kwang-Soo who worked with Lo Fun on two advertising campaigns, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Jackie Chan, Sean Lau Ching Wan, Wong Cho Lam and Leanne Li Yanan, Ng Man Tat, Ray Lui Leung Wai, Sylvia and Betty Lai, Benny Chan Ho Man and his wife, Yuen Qiu and Candy Man Suet Yee. Attendees included Tsang Ch Wai, Bak Leung Gum and his son, Wong Ha Wai, Chui Bo Fung, Mak Chui Han, Betty Lai (Ban Ban), Tsui Siu Ming and his family, Lau Siu Kwan. Tsang Chi Wai after bowing to Lo Fun quietly sat down with his wife and read the memorial program. After 40 minutes he left without accepting any interview.

Bak Leung Gum said that earlier he wanted to ask Lo Fun to work together on a movie, but she said that she was sick over the phone. At first he thought that she was pretending to be sick, later he learned about her misfortune. The director also lost the most suitable actress. Bak Leung Gum broke down. "She was a very good friend. We would always joke around together. I told her that even after she took off her clothes no one would know she was a girl. Although she was loud, she was actually very kind!"
