Best Actor Chow Yun Fat earlier appeared in Chengdu, Sichuan with Chris Lee Yuchun, director Andrew Lau Wai Keung and others for the Lunar New Year FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 3 (DOH SING FUNG WON III) press conference. From Chengdu, Lee Yuchun of course had to play host. She not only taught Chow Yun Fat the Sichuan dialect to greet viewers but even prepared the local Lunar New Year "Lai Tang Yuan" to give him a taste of Chengdu.
The "Lai Tang Yuan" that Lee Yuchun prepared had dice designs on them, which made Chow Yun Fat rather happy. After he tried some he had nothing but praise. Director Lau Wai Keung even joked, "This is the best Tang Yuan that I have ever had!" The always friendly Chow Yun Fat even fed the female host and the fans went into an uproar, which filled the venue with Spring Festival atmosphere. Will Chow Yun Fat continue his promotional tour on Lunar New Year's Day? He joked, "I will choose to run in the hills, where few people will be and very quiet. I can even train my body."
Chow Yun Fat's "God of Gamblers" film series has been very memorable and later span off to CON MAN (DOH HUP) and ALL FOR THE WINNER (DOH SING) film series. Yet speaking of "Saint of Gamblers" Stephen Chow Sing Chi's Lunar New Year film MERMAID as a box office rival to FROM 3, Chow Yun Fat said that he did not mind. On a rare reunion with Nick Cheung Ka Fai he said, "Having the same release date with a Chow Sing Chi film is a good thing. I have always had a dream of bringing Chow Sing Chi and Cheung Ka Fai together for a movie." Yet he admitted that this idea would be rather difficult. "Now Chow Sing Chi only directs and won't act, getting him is very hard. I can only leave it with Director Lau Wai Keung to see if he has even pull to get him."
