Director Johnnie To Kei Fung turns 60 this year. Last night he held a birthday party at the Amigo restaurant in Happy Valley. The restaurant was decorated with gold balloons in the shape of the number sixty. Over 100 media outlets covered the event. To Sir received the congratulation from many friends in the business like Best Actor Sean Lau Ching Wan and his wife, Sammi Cheng Sau Man, Damien Lau Chung Yan, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Ann Hui On Wa, Charles Heung Wa Keung and his wife, Peter Lam Kin Ngok, Maggie Siu Mei Kei, Josie Ho Chiu Yi and her husband Conroy Chan Chi Chung. Eddie Cheung Siu Fai, Mini Kung Chi Yan, Timmy Hung Tin Ming and Stephanie Che Yuen Yuen played representatives and gave red eggs to the media outside, sending blessing to everyone on behalf of To Sir.
Speaking of recent TVB late night re-run of the classic series THE GREED OF MEN (DAI SI DOI) becoming the hot topic online and rumored to be made into a film, Ching Wan said, "I will worry about that then, if it's true I will consider it then." During the interview some pedestrians screamed Fong Jin Bok at Ching Wan. Ching Wan heard and smiled, Lau Chung Yan brought lai see. He admitted that he watched the re-run in the morning, but did not know when the film version will be made. If he had a good role he would take it. Speaking of his performance going viral online and being praised as god class acting, he joked, "If I only get praises now I would have been done for."
Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) revealed that To Sir told everyone not to give gifts and donate the money instead to Fresh Wave Film Fund. Thus he obeyed. Will Siu Chai sing to celebrate? He joked that To Sir was a microphone hog. Cheng Sau Man also answered To Sir's call, donated to Fresh Wave Film Fund, wished him good health and hoped that he would keep working. She also stated that this year she would not drink. "Tomorrow morning I have a concert in Genting, I have to leave at 6AM so I won't be drinking." She also revealed that Andy Hui Chi On was also present last night. Koo Tin Lok saw the media and immediately dodged left and right, he did not stop for an interview.
After most guests were inside, To Sir came out for an interview with a glass of red wine in hand. He stared at the racetrack across the street and joked, "I wish for victory for the track too." His birthday wish was for his co-workers to be happy and healthy. To Sir praised how entertaining THE GREED OF MEN really was. It was able to touch people's hearts and represent Hong Kong series, because the 80s Hong Kong television series mesmerized the entire world and were the series at their peak. He continued, "Don't say that I am slamming the series now as not entertaining, when you watch the 80s series again what do they make today's series look like? If they keep going on like this they are certainly done for."
Yesterday TVB's Tsang Sing Ming said that the company has announced its determination to determine its film business and will work with many film companies. Any subject, television or film that the audience would be interested in would be produced. THE GREED OF MEN is the current hot topic, but preparation needs time, not to mention script and actor schedules. Thus it has only been initial suggestion and nothing has been confirmed yet.
