Pegasus Motion Pictures last night held its spring banquet, many in the industry came in support like Raymond Lam Fung, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Kelly Chen Wai Lam, Sandra Ng Kwan Yu, Ronald Cheng Chung Kei and others. Speaking of ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2012 (BAK SING PO HEI)'s Hong Kong box office defeat at the hands of Eric Tsang Chi Wai's I LOVE HONG KONG 2012 (2012 NGOR OI HK HEI SEUNG GA HEI), ALL'S boss Raymond Wong Pak Ming ridiculed Chi Wai's movie for not having a Mainland market and stated that next year he will keep going. He said, "Why not compete when we can?"
Last night many artists appeared and gave away big laisees so everyone was pleased. Speaking of this year's ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2012 disappointing box office, Wong Pak Ming was not disappointed and stressed that it was expected. He said, "This year has many film releases, so far its Hong Kong box office is 7 million. However its Mainland, Singapore and Malaysia responses have been decent. The Mainland box office has already passed 70 million and passing 100 million won't be hard." Pak Ming stressed that it had profit, this time the word of mouth was even better than last year's ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI). As for losing to Chi Wai for a third year in a row, he did not admit defeat. "Chi Wai('s movie) isn't in the Mainland! (He won in Hong Kong?) Then congratulations to him!"
Speaking of Chi Wai revealing that he sent a text message to Wong Pak Ming but has not received any reply, he denied that and only blamed it on him not being in Hong Kong. "I am not afraid that he would be mad, I am happy for Chi Wai! Next Year I will keep making Lunar New Year films, why not compete when we can!" Will he congratulate Chi Wai when he will return on the Lunar 8th, Wong Pak Ming joked, "Let's wait until he is really back first!" Wong Pak Ming also revealed that this year he will invest on three films. SAVING GENERAL YANG (YEUNG GA JEUNG) will be released at the end of the year. In April Vincent Kok Tak Siu's NAM YUN YU YI FOOK (MEN ARE LIKE CLOTHES) will start production; however, the new film with old couple Ronald Cheng Chung Kei and Miriam Yeung Chin Wai will have to be negotiated again due to Chin Wa's pregnancy.
Seven months pregnant, Chen Wai Lam admitted that she has already gained over ten pounds and joked that her appetite was even greater than her husband's. "I keep eating salty and sweet things, it's very hard to control." Kelly said that now once her husband was full she would try to stop. Does her son "Shrimp Dumpling Kid" know that he will soon be an older brother? Kelly said, "He knows that Mama has a baby in her belly and knows where he came from. He would even pretend to crawl back inside to come back out again!" She revealed that during the Lunar New Year she brought "Shrimp Dumpling Kid" on Lunar New Year visits and her friends and family gave laisee to both "Shrimp Dumpling Kid" and the baby in her belly. When will she be able to break even? Kelly helplessly said, "It's impossible, I calculated that both of their lifetimes won't be on par with tonight, tonight I will give six figure in laisee." Last night she wore flats, she joked that now she could not even see her feet so dressing pretty would be useless. "Now I don't like to sit because standing up I look like a pregnant lady!" Andy Lau Tak Wa earlier admitted that his wife Chu Lai Sin was carrying a little dragon maiden. Kelly stated that she would like to make a match. She said, "'Little Juicy Bun' matches her. If not that I will tell 'Shrimp Dumpling Kid' to take the place!" She joked that this time she was rich because Wa Jai's daughter will have a lot in dowry.
Ng Kwan Yu was linked to Winnie Yu Tseng years ago. Last night Kwan Yu appeared at the spring banquet and became the focus. Recently Yu Tseng and Pansy Ho Chiu King were caught holding hands in Europe. Kwan Yu coldly responded, "I didn't see the news, I don't know. As long as they are happy it's fine. It's got nothing to do with me. Don't ask about other people." She joked that she and her daughter constantly held hands too.
As for a dragon baby, she responded, "I have to rest for half a year before even trying, but I still have two movies on hand." Kwan Yu admitted her body was like an animal's, one day without a child was like ten. As for advice from her good friend Andy Lau Tak Wa, she said, "I can handle my own deal. Telling him to raise me too sounds more like it." As for Louis Koo Tin Lok recently he has been working on his new film DRUG WAR (DUK JIN) in Tianjin. Goo jai said, "The low temperature there was seven degrees below zero (Celsius), we still have awhile on the shoot." Speaking of ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2012's mediocre Hong Kong box office, he hoped that next time will be even better. Actors have to do their part. As for whether he will work on another Lunar New Year film next year it will depend on whether the boss will invest.
