The Dior Cheng Yi Kin and Chrissie Chau Sau Na's first collaboration, the romantic film BREAK UP 100 (FUN SAU 100 CHI) also starred Ivana Wong Yuen Chi. In the film she played with split personality, playing cute at a moment and violent at another. She also sang the film theme song DON'T SAY BREAK UP AGAIN. Earlier she even went to the 7 figure but soon to be demolished outdoor cafe set with the leads for a music video shoot.
In the music video, Ivana like her character appeared as a third party. When Ekin and Sister Na sat across from each other silently and Ivana sat between them to sing the sad lyrics, the air seemed to be frozen. Ekin tearfully and helplessly looked at Sister Na, whose queen like presence gradually turned into sorrow. Finally tears covered her face. Although they had no dialogue, all three were very in character. Later Ivana thanked the leads for sacrificing their bodies and tears for the shoot. She even revealed that she had an another motive for putting them into the music video. She joked, "Because in the film I was their background, so in the music video I gave them to be my background, haha!" Ekin was very reluctant to part with the cafe set that had to be demolished that night. All three agreed that the most memorable was the cafe's "break up mini storage". Ivana blurred out that it was a "break up columbarium", Ekin felt that everything that was left from a break up was "junk". Sister Na jokingly asked, "Then isn't it a 'garbage collection station'?" Ivana's parents were also on hand to cheer on their daughter and took photos.
Because director Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui deliberately hid the ending, they did not know how the film would end. Sister Na seriously said, "If it was real life, I wanted to break up with Ekin. We couldn't get along, without any exchange it would be very hard to continue to be together!" This collaboration turned Ivana, Ekin and Sister Na into good friends. She even used the time before takes to knit a Christmas stocking to bring to the cafe for a photo. She said, "In order to focus on the story, I worried that sleeping and reading would distract me. Thus I knitted small items so I could focus my emotions a little and take my mark at any time!"
