Karena Ng Chin Yu last night attended the Lunar New Year film HOTEL DELUXE (BAK SING JAU DIM) celebration. She said that she and Raymond Lam Fung went to Milan and Florence and had a lot of fun. "In over half a month we went on holiday three times. Due to work in between, the earlier trips were too short. In addition I worked on a series for three years, I wanted a long vacation. Other friends went along too." The first time when she and Lam Fung went to Japan she revealed that they had separate rooms. This was their third trip but she avoided talking about the room situation. "I am not talking about anything that is too personal." She also denied that they were secretly married, as she would definitely announce her marriage. As for the diamond ring on her left hand, Ng Chin Yu was obviously frustrated. "I bought it myself! He hasn't given me any ring, this would be something for another level. Right now we are at the boyfriend girlfriend stage. Was Lam Fung a romantic person? Has he constantly given presents? No! I was able to guess his everything. How would I grade him? That's very hard to say! However he is very attentive. After this trip I understood a lot. He usually would be late, I have talked to him about that."

Would she be more careful overseas to avoid accidental pregnancy? Ng Chin Yu said, "I absolutely wouldn't be pregnant, one step at a time. Have we developed to this level? I want to be pregnant after marriage. Marriage is a big life event and needs time to plan. Would I consider a wedding in Florence? We will see!" Was Lam Fung her baby? Ng Chin Yu joked, "Many people call me Baby, I can Lam Fung Ah Man (Lam Fung's original name is Lam Wui Man)." Yesterday when she returned to Hong Kong, Lam Fung did not arrange for a ride and she took a taxi. She said that because she knew reporters would be present, she wanted to be more low key.

Sandra Ng Kwan Yu privately did not ask about "Fung Yu romance". She said, "When we worked on HOTEL DELUXE, Ng Chin Yu was very gregarious. She never said that she was in a hurry to leave. They showed no sign at all." She felt that they were very well matched. She was happy to see artists coupling up to go on trips.

As for her good friend Shawn Yue Man Lok and Kary Ng Yu Fei denying their romance, Kwan Yu felt that everyone had a different method of handling it. Kwan Yu joked, "Back then when I returned from romantic trips I would always have a dodgy expression. Have I been on three trips in a month? I spent a lot of money when I was dating, I spent several tens of thousands on a weekend flight to Los Angeles. Maybe they have idol baggage. Actually fans now are already very understanding and accept their idols' marriage and parenthood, like Spice Ma (Kelly) Chen Wai Lam."

Raymond Wong Pak Ming felt that it was normal for Ng Chin Yu to be happy about dating, as long as her work was not affected she was fine. Wong Pak Ming also praised Lam Fung as a good guy. "His attitude is great. Their earlier collaboration BABY BLUES 3D (NGAI NGAN 3D) will be released in the middle of the year. Because they aren't a couple in the film, during the promotion they would not be deliberately arranged to be together."

Ronald Cheng Chung Kei said about Beijing art critic Jia Xuanning's claim that VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET) vilified Mainlanders, "Everyone's cultural backgrounds are different, they definitely have differences. No one needs to be too extreme."

Mainland art critic Jia Xuanning criticized Hong Kong film VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET) as garbage entertainment and Mainlander discrimination, which made the movie hot again. Lead actor Chapman To Man Jat suggested a return engagement. Yesterday he and director Pang Ho Cheung announced two charity screenings on Saturday at the Amoy Cine Art cinema, the proceeds will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation to benefit the Hong Kong mental patients.

Pang Ho Cheung said, "I have always been concerned about the mental health issue. After discussing with To Man Jat, if the response will be enthusiastic we will consider additional screenings." To Man Jat on social network sites urged fans to do something for charity. "Hong Kong people who want more than a moral victory, hurry up and buy tickets! Pang Ho Cheung and I will appear in person for audience appreciation!" Over 8,000 people liked the post.

To Man Jat also did not forget about "Ms. Jia". Speaking of her failed beauty pageant bid, To Man Jat said, "Ms. Jia, don't give up! Last time you lost at the Miss Chinese International, I give you my narrow moral support! Try again to prove your Great China no retreat no surrender spirit!"

The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CONQUERING THE DEMONS (SAI YAU GONG MOR PIN) again became him the film industry people in focus. He was even invited to famous CCTV anchor Chai Jing for an interview on SEEING. The story behind this program was, 20 days after the interview Sing Yeh contacted CCTV to state that he was displeased with his performance and hoped to answer the questions anew. He seemingly made everyone realize even more why his collaboration partners could not stand him -- he seriously pursued perfection.

During the interview, the always reserved about love Sing Yeh was asked why he was still not married? He asked, "Do I still have a chance looking like this now? I am so old that even I am afraid to say what my age is." He even revealed that he once had real love in front of him but he did not cherish it. He felt that mainly his luck was poor. If he could start over again, he would not make himself so busy and would take some time to do something that he enjoyed.

On the program, Chai Jing pointed out that some called Sing Yeh a genius and some called him a tyrant. Some directors thus parted ways with him, because he would publicly change scenes due to difference in opinion between him and the director. Sing Yeh admitted that at work he was very serious, sometimes being serious would upset some people. However only by working seriously would he have hope. The reason behind the difference in opinion with a colleague often had to do with money. Chai Jing asked him about his view on money. "Of course I hope to be able to make more. Because when I was little I was very poor, when I had the chance I would make money with my own abilities. It's not because of what I wanted to eat or where I wanted to live. People had to keep achieving goals, making money didn't need to have an end. Doing something to its best is the real nucleus, making money made it a complete set."


Alfred Cheung is planning a few stories, even with Mainland actors he hopes the story background will be Hong Kong

Alfred Cheung Kin Ting yesterday accepted on a now program, the topic of which was the China Hong Kong conflict. Cheung Kin Ting felt that developing in the Mainland was the general trend, he wanted to see how balance could be achieved. Currently he had several projects in preparation. Even if he would use Mainland actors, he still hoped the story background would be Hong Kong. Speaking of the Art Development Council's first art critic gold prize and the HK$50,000 prize going to Beijing critic Jia Xuanning who criticized Hong Kong film VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET) for vilifying Mainlanders, he felt that public funding must have enough transparency, fairness was very important.

Speaking of his HER FATAL WAYS (BIU JEH NEI HO YEH) once being banned in the Mainland, he heard from a friend that its earlier TVB broadcast was suddenly cut in the Guangdong region and was very surprised. He has seen INBOUND TROUBLES (LO BIU NEI HO YEH) and thought it was interesting. Eric Tsang Chi Wai blurred out that he would ask him and Carol Cheng Yui Ling to star in the film version at the end of the year, he joked that he would worry about it when he was truly asked.

The film SAVING GENERAL YANG (JUNG LIT YEUNG GA JEUNG) will be released on April 4. Adam Cheng Siu Chau has been away from the big screen for almost 20 years, this time he agreed to play General Yang. He said that the chance to play the father of seven hunks was very rare, thus he decided to take the role. In the film Chau Guoon looked heroic and rivaled his seven sons.

During the battle scenes, the actors all performed on horseback. Before the shoot they accepted equestrian training in Beijing. Jai Jai Vic Chou Yu Man said that his horse was the most mischievous. Every time he had to chat with it first in hopes for it to be obedient. Raymond Lam Fung revealed that working on horseback all day gave everyone back pain. His rear was even peeling. He did not dare to sit down even during meals, he could only eat standing up.

Gillian Chung Yun Tung in the film IP MAN THE FINAL FIGHT (IP MAN JUNG GIK YUT JIN) played Ip Man's disciple Sei Mui, reprising her "fighting actress" origin and carrying a fake belly to play pregnant. She even stated, "My baby will definitely be ugly." Because she carried a big fake belly to play pregnant, due to the prop weight after half a day of walking up and down the stairs her back hurt. Thus she jokingly said to the fake belly, "Mama is very noble, let me tell my future baby, Mama has a very hard time carrying you, you have to be filial!" Workers reminded her to not praise the baby because when it grew up the opposite would happen. Ah Gil immediately corrected herself. "My future baby will definitely be a traitor and very ugly." In one scene Ah Gil was kicked. She said that although she was not really pregnant her heart ached for her character.

Fiona Sit Hoi Kei yesterday attended in a Pandora 2013 spring and summer line event. Fiona said that she just returned from Sydney. She was very happy and honored to win the Golden Koala Best Actress award for her film THE BOUNTY (YUEN HUNG). Because the jury did not understand Cantonese and Mandarin, the method was fairer. How would she celebrate? She said that after 9 years in the business she has not been on a holiday with her family, thus on this trip to Australia she stayed three more days there, shared the sun and the sand with her family and celebrated. Fiona after returning to Hong Kong was busy with recording and has not celebrated with her friends yet. However the award will be on display at her company. Will she invest more time on film? She said that currently she had a few scripts on hand, but because last year she made four to five films this year she would prefer quality over quantity as she wanted to focus on music. "I am very happy that earlier my limited edition music book has already been sold out. I can at least answer to my new company."

Beijing's Jia Xuanning earlier slammed VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET), Fiona had no idea. "Whether singing or acting, any opinion and article I would be interested in reading. After reading it I would make further analysis. Any criticism is beneficial to us." Would she comfort the director and good friend Chapman To Man Jat? "They both are very strong people who are very worldly. They don't need me to comfort them." As for Shawn Yue Man Lok and Kary Ng Yu Fei's romance, Fiona also had no idea. "Ng Yu Fei and I later will perform a show, but personally we rarely go out. Lok Jai and I have some common friends. I hope everyone wouldn't give them too much pressure, give them more space and freedom to love. Am I talking from experience? I too hope when I date in the future everyone would be able to give me more freedom."

The Johnnie To Kei Fung directed new film DRUG WAR (DUK JIN) earlier competed in the 7th Rome Film Festival and the 2013 Rotterdam International Film Festival. Later it will be the opening film at the Osaka Asian Film Festival and the Taiwan Golden Horse Fantastic Film Festival. At the same time it was selected for a gala premiere at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and nominated for this year's Asian Film Award Best Picture, Screenplay, Editing and others. The film will have two premieres on March 19. To Kei Fung, Wai Ka Fai, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Sun Honglei and many actors would attend and meet viewers. The tickets have been completely sold out. To Kei Fung daringly challenged the Mainland film release standards, broke through the most sensitive subject in the Mainland and aimed at the ugliest dark side of drugs. Yet he still did not lose his dark humor, unique director style and the ending was unexpected.

Media Asia boss Dr. Peter Lam Kin Ngok earlier a spring banquet. Donnie Yen Chi Tan and his wife Cissy Wang, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Leon Lai Ming, Denise Ho Wan Si, Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Grasshoppers, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Janice Vidal (Wai Lan) and others attended. Lam Kin Ngok gave away laisee as everyone ate, drank and celebrated.

Nominated for the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress with LOVE IN THE BUFF (CHUN GIU YU JI MING), Yeung Chin Wa gleefully gave away "Ting" marked laisee everywhere and wished Wong Yuen Chi to find the right one soon. Wong Yuen Chi happily replied, "Great! Thank you!" Jerry Lamb Hiu Fung in order to get Chin Wa's big laisee humorously revealed in front of his wife Lily Hong Chi Nei that he had 9 illegitimate children.

Because it was Chin Wa's Lunar birthday, Lam Kin Ngok prepared a big cake for her as a surprise. Chin Wa excitedly said, "Every year Boss' spring banquet is on my Lunar birthday, proving my birthday is a lucky day." Her wish was for good health. Andrew Lau Wai Keung gave her a kiss. Lai Ming, Ho Wan Si, Yen Chi Tan and others sang the birthday song. Ekin screamed from the crowd, "Have a few more." Lau Wai Keung also urged Ekin to have a baby. "I wish you YOUNG AND DANGEROUS and SEXY AND DANGEROUS ones to be fruitful and multiply, a generation after another starting with you. You can direct, I can produce."

A magazine claimed that independent band Chochukmo guitarist Mike Orange is pursuing Wong Yuen Chi. Two nights ago she denied the rumor online and apologized to Mike Orange. "Gossip magazines should truly be treated like comic books. None of my male friends who worked with me and hung out with me were spared. Magazines made everything up, like I have ten boyfriends and a hundred suitors. This time they involved Chochukmo, Mike Orange I am sorry for any disturbance this time caused you."

The annual Emperor Entertainment New Spring group visit two nights ago took place. Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, Joey Yung Cho Yi, Leo Ku Kui Ke, Twins and Chapman To Man Jat who just finished his solo talk show along with boss Albert Yeung Sau Sing attended. Because they were all busy on their own during the New Spring holiday, they met for the first time two nights ago and wished everyone a Happy New Year.

They also took photos with each others but they did not have any prop. They all borrowed laisee from Mr. Yeung for props. When Mr. Yeung took out a stack of shiny gold laisee, they immediately fought of it. After the photos, they did not return to laisee to the boss. Mr. Yeung was very generous and said that the most important in the New Year was for everyone to be happy.

Stepping into the Year of the Snake artists all have their new projects. Joey will perform a cross year concert at the end of the year at the Hong Kong Coliseum for the first time. Joey was not only excited but also began the preparation. She planned to take time off and study "dance" overseas.

Other artists this year will join film productions, like Ting Fung, Twins, Ah Jat and Gei Jai who rarely participated in film. Ting Fung and Gei Jai had many scripts in their hands. Twins this year will also work separately. Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin will perform in a large scale program in Shanghai, while Gillian Chung Yun Tung will work on her new film in Beijing. The busiest had to be To Man Jat, who thought after his solo talk show could have a few days off to rest but actually already had several movies waiting for him. No wonder he often complained about no holiday.
