Michael Miu Kiu Wai, Linda Wong Hing Ping and Balia Chan Pui Ka were among the participants in a Hong Kong open pro-am golf tournament. Speaking of Wong Tin Lam's passing, Ah Miu said that Uncle Tin was his mentor. Back then after he and Felix Wong Yat Wa made THE LONELY HUNTER (GOR HAT), Uncle Tin Lam asked him to make THE LEGEND OF THE CONDOR HEROES (SEH DIU YING HUNG JUEN). After that they worked on many series. Uncle Tin Lam treated Ah Miu and his wife particularly well. When Uncle Tin Lam eased out of show business, sometimes Ah Miu would see Uncle Tin Lam when he dined with Wong Jing. They had quite a connection. Ah Miu said, "Two years ago I attended Uncle Tin Lam's major birthday party, hearing the news of passing I was very surprised."
Artists who have worked with Wong Tin Lam expressed their sorrow online. Liza Wang Ming Chuen wrote, "I just learned about Big Director Wong Tin Lam's passing. I am very sadden and heartbroken. In the 80s when Hong Kong television series were at their most glorious, Uncle Tin Lam was a representative figure. I was very lucky to have worked with Uncle Tin Lam for years, created so many classic characters for the audience, and also created Wang Ming Chuen. Thank you, Uncle Tin Lam, I will always miss you!" Mak Cheung Ching also wrote, "Have a safe journey! Miss you! Thank you for the contributions that you have made for this industry." Athena Chu Yun, Ada Choi Siu Fun, Raymond So wing Lim, Ben Wong Chi Yin, and Natalie Tong Sze Wing also stated online that they will forever miss Uncle Tin Lam. Even Beijing's Li Yapeng noticed the news of Uncle Tin Lam's passing. He wrote, "Miss you! Classic Hong Kong film
director of a generation!"
