Also expected will be show business, business and society luminaries and educational groups, medical organizations, cultural and art groups, community charity groups that have received Uncle Six's assistance. Thus the Shaw Studios have already set up many studios to ease the traffic flow. Tsang Sing Ming reiterated, "Mr. Shaw lived a simple life and did not pay attention to formalities.
