She said, "Today I am here to see if I can participate in anything. With so many elders here, I am just here to observe. (Would you recommend yourself for Chi Wai's Lunar New Year film?) Great! Ask me! I have played comedy before!" Ko Hoi Ning said that Ah Tin was fast on her feet while she was not. She hoped to make more comedy to practice her wit more. Would she work with Wong Jing again? She said, "My first film was Brother Jing's work, I hope he would save me a spot. Ultimately actors all want to make movies. It is another type of challenge. (Wong Jing's films would require being sexy?) I can be sexy, a little!"
