Yesterday was November 13th, the birthday of both Shawn Yue Man Lok and Huang Xiaoming. Lok Jai turned 35. He not only celebrated with his co-star Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, but friends Eddie Peng Yu-Yan and Shu Qi also sent well wishes on social media. The married Shu Qi even wished Lok Jai would wish another half soon.
Busy with his new film LOVE OFF THE CUFF (CHUN GIU GAU JI MING), Yue Man Lok received a birthday cake from the team as a surprise on the set. The team bought two birthday cakes, one was filled with Smarties and the other gold coins. Smarties represented childlike innocence and the gold coins represented income. They were meant for Lok Jai to have fun and also greatly increase his income.
Co-stars Yeung Chin Wa and Mainland actress Jiang Mengjie celebrated Lok Jai's birthday. During Lok Jai's break, director Pang Ho Cheung and Chin Wa dragged Lok Jai into the room to pretend to chat so the team would have time to prepare. When Lok Jai returned to the set, he saw the cake and asked out of surprise, "There really is one?" His smile could not hide his excitement. Lok Jai also posed for photos with the team and took selfies and videos with everyone.
Lok Jai said, "I am very touched! Finally I am able to spend my birthday in Hong Kong!" In the past few years he had to work in the Mainland on his birthday so he was unable to celebrate in Hong Kong. This time the director fulfilled his dream. Lok Jai also did not have to work on his birthday. He said that he will spend it with his family. Because he was very tired from all the recent movie productions. He had a rare one day holiday and he would like to spend it comfortably.
