Playing Muzha in THE MONKEY KING, Law Chung Him yesterday attended a promotion. Would he watch it with his rumored girlfriend Tavia Yeung Yi? Him Jai said, "I would treat her, a few days off for the New Year are hard to come by. However we might not be able to go to the movies together because in the New Year I have to entertain relatives. (Will you and Yeung Yi pay each other New Year visits?) I don't know, I don't need to. Even if I go I can't handle it. Actually we artists have a group and discuss paying each other New Year visits, but with too many people it is very hard to accommodate." On the Lunar New Year's Eve he and Yeung Yi would attend a shopping center holiday event. He would even sing in public for the first time, which he was nervous about. He said, "She has never heard my singing, but the pressure isn't from her but from the numerous reporters there."
