She wished for his director road would reach its most perfect place, if he does not want to stop then he would keep on working. Hui Chi On said that he was late due to work, but he knew that the director would not be upset. He said that he and Cheng Sau Man brought a gift together. Cheung Ka Fai said that he and Claudie Chung Chun gave red wine to the director. Because the director was vain and wanted to lose weight in recent years, he had no idea what to give. He said that he knew most of the friends, wished the director good health and dominance. Why did his wife Esther Kwan Wing Ho not attend? He pointed out that his wife usually would not attend such events. As for whether he would work with To Kei Fung, he said, "Let him think about it himself, I shouldn't have to speak up. If I have to then it's no fun." Was his salary too high? He joked, "Speaking of expensive, I am not even in the top ten." Jai Jai said that at first he thought it was a private party, he did not expect so many reporters. He said that he brought some authentic snacks for the director.
Lam Suet said that he brought a very big gift for the director, a stone seal. He wished him a full harvest every year. Tang Wei gave her father's calligraphy to him. Would she want to work with the director? She said that they are working together now on the film DESIGN FOR LIVING (WA LAI SEUNG BAN JOOK). She said that the director was not mean and has not yelled at her. Wong Jing joked that he brought two bunches of bananas. Because he had an early flight this morning, he had a few drinks and left. He wished To Kei Fung's films would be better and better. Lau Siu Ming said that he, Chung King Fai and others worked with the director. The two of them together were over 100 in age. He wished for the director to make more good movies. Gao Yuanyuan said that over eight years she has worked with the director on four films. She respected him very much and treated him like a father and an elder. She said that she gave the director an ancient blade. Cheung Siu Fai said that he gave the director a camera lens. Cheung Ngai Ga wished good health and more good films for the director. Lam Siu Ming recently had a contract dispute with Elanne Kong Yeuk Lam. He said that for now they did not have any contact as the matter was being handled. Would he follow up? He said, "Why would I, but since the contract was signed it must be followed through." Would he take her to court? He said, "I don't want to because it would be quite a bother." Speaking of Kong Yeuk Lam crying, he had no pity. "Crying? Don't pretend to be pitiful."
