Hong Kongers grew up with Stephen Chow Sing Chi's movies. Yesterday after many learned about Sing Yeh being named to the Guangdong Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, they were not only surprised but also immediately thought of his classic FROM BEIJING WITH LOVE (GOK CHAN LING LING CHAT), in which the Law Kar Ying played Tat Man Si said to Sing Yeh, "The nation finally has a duty for him." Sing Yeh in the film played the Central spy "Ah Chat" who like the Political Consultative Conference "services the nation". Ah Chat was classified as an unacceptable agent and could only be a down on his luck butch at the market. After learning about his new mission, he said, "After so many years, I thought the nation has already forgotten about me". Some online continued to quote from the film, "Even a pair of underwear, a sheet of toilet paper has its purpose!"
In addition, Passion Times even had a parody with the still from the film and even called Chow Sing Chi "Comrade".
