Jacky Cheung Hok Yau in the Lunar New Year film HOT SUMMER DAYS (CHUEN SING YIT LUEN) had scenes with Rene Liu (Lau Yeuk Ying ) and a 7 year old girl. In the film Hok Yau played a driver. After losing his job he was forced to play an "ice man" on the busy Mongkok streets. The shoot took place in the summer. Hok Yau's strange costume attracted many onlookers nad added to the comedy effect.

Hok Yau's prop "ice" was a several dozen pound slush. During the shoot, he almost suffered a heat stroke. After completion the red mark that was left on his shoulders took several days to disappear.

Playing Hok Yau 's daughter in the film, Strawberry was chosen from over 100 girls. She not only played the piano well, she memorized the dialogue instantly and became the set's zero bad take actor. Sometimes she even reminded Hok Yau of his lines. Thus Hok Yau joked, "Don't steal my lines."
