Hope Education Foundation gave a five figure sponsorship to the musical HER MAGIC OF LIFE -- THE ME NOBDOY KNOWS (BO SHEK KEI YUEN), which took place two night ago in Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre. Charlie Yeung Choi Nei attended as the foundation ambassador. Yeung Choi Nei said that when she, Angelica Lee Sinjie, Valen Hsu (Hui Yu Wan) and Gigi Leung Wing Kei formed the foundation, they wanted to be able to perform a musical. This time she felt very happy that the show had its run for five figures because she felt that the learning disabled would be able to build self confidence through performing. She even said, "Half of the performers are professionals, half are children with learning disabilities. Yet I can't tell them apart from their on stage performance, and I also saw the parents watched on with a lot of tension."

Has she been busy with her first film as a director? Yeung Choi Nei said, "The film that I will direct will not start production until the end of December, now I am working in the Mainland on the Tsui Hark directed 3D thriller JAU HAU (CATCH MONKEY)."

Being able to participate in a 3D film production, Yeung Choi Nei was very excited. Because 3D films differ from normal films, actor marks have to be very accurate. She had to learn and adjust anew, everyday at work was like going to class. Tsui Hark knew that she will direct so he kept teaching and advising her on the set.
