Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of Gor Gor's death, fans from Japan brought the thousand origami cranes that they folded to Gor Gor's Po Fook Shan altar. Gor Gor's friend Lin Yim Heung presented incense. Outside the Mandarin Oriental Hotel hundreds of fresh flowers that mainly consisted of white roses, lilies and orchids were placed in the forms of "Leslie", "We Love You" and "Gor". When Ms. Xu who came from Beijing presented flowers she broke down in tears. She praised Gor Gor for loving his fans in life. The Post 80 born Maggie learned about him anew after Gor Gor's passing through his concerts and films. This time she even came from overseas to present flowers.
Last night around 6:45PM, fans moved to the playground across the street from the hotel and played Gor Gor's hits. Nearly 100 hundred fans held white candles in a moment of silence for Gor Gor, many already broke down in tears. At 8PM, fans held a memorial event at Chater Garden to look for Gor Gor off camera. Several hundreds of fans attended. George Lam Chi Cheung performed COUNTDOWN WITH YOU in memory of his late friend and provided a photo of Gor Gor kissing him in 1985 and videos of their
collaboration. Ah Lam even yelled on stage, "Cheung Kwok Wing, we will always remember you!" He also laments that in the video he saw friends like Teresa Tang Lai Kwan, Anita Mui Yim Fong, Danny Chan Pak Keung who all departed one after another. Ah Lam said that he met Cheung Kwok Wing for the first time at a singing contest in 1977. At the time many fans still have not been born yet. In addition, Tsui Hark, Lin Yim Fai, Wong Man Ling and Vincent Kok tak Siu also shared their film production experience with Gor Gor.
