Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Janice Man Wing Shan and others yesterday promoted their film NIGHTFALL (DAI JUI BO) on Ngong Ping 360.  Ka Fai in the film had to fight on the cable car.  He said that while shooting in the crystal cabin he looked down and was frightened.  He even revealed that Simon Yam Tat Wa suffered from motion sickness on the cable car from the shoot.

Cheung Ka Fai, Janice Man, Candy Yu On On and others yesterday attended the appreciation banquet.  The event arranged for everyone to take the cable car to the venue.  However, Yu On On due to her fear of
heights did not and arrived in a car instead.

As for the cable car fight in the film, Ka Fai gave his vote of confidence.  He said, "I didn't feel it was dangerous.  Ngong Ping 360 is a tourist landmark.  If it wasn't 200% safe it wouldn't be flinging back and forth above the hill!"  He also took the chance to thank Ngong Ping 360's support of the film.  However, due to how high it was above ground, Ka Fai admitted the the crystal cabin shoot was rather scary.  He said, "I was scared from looking down the glass in this height.  I also had to jump from the Peak.  Everyone had great coordination!"  He stressed that not just DARK KNIGHT was able to capture the beautiful scenery of Hong Kong.

Ka Fai also said that because he did not have breakfast before the shoot Yam Tat Wa had motion sickness on the cable car.  In addition, Yu On On said that due to her fear of heights she would not ride any cable car.  She said, "For a short distance I can, like riding a helicopter.  Even with planes I can overcome the fear!"  Ka Fai also revealed that On On drank him under the table.  Ka Fai said, "I drank with her in the Mainland, I drank so much I went back to the hotel and fell into bed.  It was quite memorable."
