Speaking of Lunar New Year films, they are in general happy and full of joyful cheer in welcoming the New Year. Yet this year one not so usual Lunar New Year film appeared. The Sunny Lau Yung directed film SUGAR STREET STUDIO (TONG GAI JAI PIN CHONG) is a ghost film! Its star Eric Kot Man Fai jokingly said that he would prepare fire basins for the audience to leap over when they leave, wishing everyone good luck and fortune.

The Lau Yung directed Lunar New Year ghost film SUGAR STREET STUDIO starred Kot Man Fai, Chan Kwok Bing, Matthew Chow Hoi Kwong, Lam Yiu Sing, Wong Yik Ho, Wiyona Yeung Lau Ching, Kaki Sham, Hanna Chan, Chloe So Ho Yi and Susan Shaw Yam Yam. Hong Kong Lunar New Year films have been all fun and joy, with a happy ending and the cast would wish everyone a Happy New Year in the end. Perhaps you would feel that watching a ghost film during the New Year would be somewhat taboo, but Lau Yung hoped that the audience would have choices. Kot Man Fai also thought of a great idea, jokingly said that he could prepare fire basins for the audience to leap over when they leave for luck.

Director Lau Yung have worked with all 5 men and have certain chemistry. He could say that each character was tailor made. However Kot Man Fai had words, feeling that how could a little lamb like him would be worldly enough to play a mob boss. Lau Yung mentioned that on the first day of work he deliberately prepared a "delicacy" for Ah Kot. Ah Kot said, "That's right, dance hall scene, I was completely full, I am still stuffed now. It was a lot of fun, for them!"

Chow Hoi Kwong's character lies, cheats and steals but is not a bad guy. He said that his personality was the complete opposite so the performance was rather tough. He mentioned that one scene truly scared him -- getting the purple nurple from Ah Kot for any mistake he made. He said, "This is what Ah Kot likes to do that most. For decades he has given the purple nurple to many." why did Ah Kot have this interest? Ah Kot said, "His are big! That's not my problem!"

Lau Yung joked that Chan Kwok Bong was his mascot, because every time they worked together they would receive the audience's praise. He said, "When I was creating I was already thinking Brother Bong would play the role, he would have to handle more complicated scenes so I definitely had to ask for his help." In addition, Lau Yung mentioned having worked with Lam Yiu Sing and Wong Yik Ho before and really admired their rhythm. Thus he again invited them to participate.

In addition, speaking of breaking taboo and releasing a ghost film during the Lunar New Year. Lau Yung felt that the Lunar New Year slot was only the best release week in his eyes, but now there should not be any traditional restriction. With changes that turned Hong Kong upside down in recent years, the pandemic also made changes in life. He believed that viewers would also make changes in their choices. Would he be worried that cinemas would still have to close due to the pandemic? He said, "If it can't be released then it will be released in March. One day it will be released. Instead we should ask, how do everyone keep going in the future? This is even more difficult."

The "Gold Label Comedy Star" Ng Man Tat two days ago passed away from liver cancer at age 70. Friend Tin Kai Man personally went to the hospital to see him for the last time and announced the news of his passing. Stephen Chow Sing Chi worked with Brother Tat countless times. Although they were rumored to be at odds, but a colleague of many years Lord Sing was rumored to remain concerned about Brother Tat's condition. His sister Chow Man Kei also visited at the hospital. Tin Man Kai said that he left messages for Lord Sing with the news but has not called him. He also said that Lord Sing's sister Chow Man Kei used to help Brother Tat with his business. They were very close. When she was in the room she also chatted with Brother Tat's family, but he did not look into whether Chow Man Kei was representing Lord Sing to see Brother Tat one last time. Many were present at the time and he had a lot to handle.

In addition, Brother Tat was rumored to be rushed to the ICU due to heart failure in 2014. After being on the edge of death he paid attention to his health and even made a will to prepare for his wife and children. At the time his current wife Hou Shan Yin was still young, daughter Ng Chor Nei and son Ng Wai Lun were even younger, so to prevent the time and the complexity of the inheritance process from affecting their lives.

Brother Tat made numerous films. His passing brought back many collective memories. Brother Tat's home TVB yesterday aired a hour live special INCOMPARABLE ACTOR: REMEMBERING NG MAN TAT and would air his representative series THE JUSTICE OF LIFE. In addition, many artists eulogized him online and shared their experience with Brother Tat. Joey Wang Cho Yin worked with Brother Tat on many films. She posted the news of his passing and added candle and prayer emojis. "Brother Tat, have a safe journey. Amitabha." Vivian Hsu posted a photo in which both she and Brother Tat wore cute head bands and described him as "No one can replace Ng Man Tat". Alex To Tak Wai remembered working with Brother Tat on a series. One night the temperature dropped to 11 degree Celsius below zero. Brother Tat attentively arranged for his assistant to get over 20 down jackets for the crew; during the shoot a camel kicked Brother Tat and broke his right leg. He needed clutches to move around but never complained. He even went to work on time everyday with the injury. In addition, Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin, Joel Chan Shan Chung, Penny Chan Kwok Fung and other actors posted photos to remember Brother Tat.

Mainland celebrity talker Song Zude with the title "Ng Man Tat, the good actor with particularly low salary" praised Brother Tat as the "actor with conscience". He posted, "Several years ago my company was preparing a small production comedy film and contacted Ng Man Tat to ask him about his salary. He opened with 800,000 (he hung out on the set for 800,000 total). I thought I heard wrong, would it be 8 million. I let the film and television department's general manager confirm that it was indeed 800,000. I was in shock." Brother Tat, whose heart was always with acting, once said that "100 years later I hope the audience would still remember me"; he also expressed hope to make an autobiographical film and be the lead in his own story. He even intended on inviting Stephen Chow Sing Chi, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Tin Kai Man, Lam Tsz Chung and others to work with him. However with his passing his wish remained regrettably unfulfilled.

In addition, Ng Man Tat worked on a Mainland science fiction film with Patrick Tam Yiu Man and star Daisy. Originally the film would be released last year, but a release date was never announced. Tam Yiu Man said that he and Ng Man Tat had no scene together, but they worked together on the series THE DUKE OF THE MOUNT DEER 2000. He praised Ng as an actor well worth respecting. "His acting was at its peak. The most memorable was that he never carried a script because he already memorized it. Even if he only had a few lines, he would think for several days about them until he was satisfied. Then he would perform." Playing Ng Man Tat's daughter, Daisy also praised him for being kind and gentle, fully dedicated to his performance.

Known as "Brother Tat", veteran actor Ng Man Tat due to liver cancer accepted treatment a month ago. Under suspicion of the cancer cells spreading he was again hospitalized for chemotherapy. Yesterday the condition turned critical and he was rushed to the ICU, by the evening he succumbed to cancer as he passed away in the company of his family at age 69. Brother Tat and Stephen Chow Sing Chi teamed up to create many "god class" comedy films, his supporting characters were wildly popular. Chow Sing Chi upon learning the passing sadly said, "I still can't accept it."

Brother Tat had heart failure early on. In recent years his health was often rumored to be changing. Earlier when he worked on the poster for the film THE LEGEND OF SHAOLIN TEMPLE, he suddenly felt chest pain and often massaged his chest with his hand. Later he promoted his new film on a Mainland variety program, which was Brother Tat's final public appearance. Brother Tat early last month revealed his illness through friends. His wife also came from Malaysia to take care of him in Hong Kong. On the 20th Brother Tat was rumored to be secretly hospitalized at the tumor ward. That day Brother Tat's friend Tin Kai man revealed that Brother Tat already had surgery and passed the critical period.

Yesterday Brother Tat's condition was rumored to be deteriorating. Brother Tat's mother, wife, children and those closest to him yesterday morning arrived at the hospital one after another to keep on company on his final journey. Friends Tin Kai man, Lok Ying Kwan, Ai Wai and others rushed to the hospital to see him for a final time starting at noon. Ai Wai after the visit revealed that Brother Tat was already intubated and started his morphine drip. Yesterday dopamine was used but he remained in a coma. Ai Wai described him as "like he was asleep". At the time Ai Wai wished that Brother Tat would be able to come out of it, but Brother Tat passed away at 5:16 PM at age 70.

Tin Kai Man in the afternoon appeared outside the hospital and informed reporters the news of Ng Man Tat's passing. He pointed out that Brother Tat passed away peacefully. Details of his funeral have yet to be discussed but one would definitely be held. The family granted him full rights to be the representative. Those in the business reached an agreement to hold a memorial for him and details would be announced later. He also said that Brother Tat had savings in recent years, financially he did not have any problem. Many in the business earlier already announced the news of Brother Tat's passing. Tin Kai Man said that he had no idea where their news came from, and he did not understand why they would do that. However announcing untrue information would affect the family. As for a reporter taking photos outside the room, Tin Kai Man pointed out that the matter will be handled later but he did not know who the person was. He hoped that the media would respect the family and not to disturb others just to get the story.

Before Brother Tat's passed, Tin Kai Man also spoke about Brother Tat's condition. He revealed that Brother Tat's wife, children and family were keeping him company. As for whether Chow Sing Chi knew about Brother Tat's condition, Tin Kai Man said that he notified him. Chow Sing Chi has been very concerned about Brother Tat's condition, and thought about ways to treat him. Unfortunately the condition deteriorated too fast. Tin Kai Man also revealed that Lord Sing's sister visited at the hospital, but he did not want everyone to put the focus on Lord Sing.

Reportedly, Chow Sing Chi upon learning Brother Tat's passing was very saddened. He pointed out, "Brother Tat's illness came fast and went fast. He was my partner and friend for so many years, right now I still can't accept it."

Ng Man Tat passed away yesterday. His former film co-star Cheung Man asked the press about Brother Tat's condition yesterday morning, never expecting that by the evening Brother Tat was already gone.

Cheung Man was very saddened by the news. She was choked up as she said, "Very sad, very sad, I only found out about Uncle Tat's illness several days ago and I kept notice. I knew that Tin Gai (Tin Kai Man) said that his hospitalization was not a big deal, but I asked brothers to pray for him. I never thought it would be so soon......" Cheung Man continued, "When I first started in the business I already worked with Uncle Tat and Sing Jai (Chow Sing Chi). Our relationship has always been great. I haven't made movies for so long, and I very rarely saw Uncle Tat. Last month I suddenly thought of Uncle Tat, so I texted him but he didn't reply. Maybe he was already in recovery." Cheung Man also thanked Brother Tat for his lessons. "When I started we worked together on many films. He really taught me a lot. I learned from him the attitude that a professional actor needs." Cheung Man said that she already prayed for Brother Tat, which was a little something that she was able to do for him.

Having worked with Brother Tat on A MOMENT OF ROMANCE, TRICKY BRAINS, LEE ROCK among other films, Andy Lau Tak Wa was saddened. "Brother Tat is gone. Where Brother Tat is there is no illness and no worry. Have a safe journey!"

Sandra Ng Kwan Yu said, "I am very heartbroken, it's too sudden. When I was working with him the most, he really was a great teacher to me, a friend I could talk to, a good co-star, I am very grateful to Brother Tat and I would miss him!"

Daniel Chan Hiu Tung played father and son with Ng Man Tat in THE LUCKY GUY (HUNG WON YUT TIU LUNG). They worked together again on a Mainland film two years ago. Tung Tung posted a photo with Brother Tat. "I would remember what you said, to never hand in poor work, to always cherish every expression in the performance. I respect you very much, deeply miss you, and am grateful to have met you!" Tung Tung revealed that earlier he and Brother Tat constantly had contact. Brother Tat really took care of the younger generation. During the shoot he would text everyone good morning. Tung Tung said about Brother Tat's passing, "Sad! I am very sad!"

Simon Yam Tat Wa knew Brother Tat for years. He remembered that the first time they worked together in the 1988 film TIGER CAGE (DUT GAING TOH LUNG). Brother Tat's performance method and attitude toward life taught him a lot. Thus while making movies he would always think of him. Brother Wa pointed out that Brother Tat brought the audience endless joy and a certain milestone on the film industry. "I really miss him. I wish Brother Tat a safe journey!"

Christy Chung Lai Tai posted a photo in remembrance. "Seeing this photo I remember when we made LOVE ON DELIVERY (POR WAI JI WONG), our big family was both professional and joyful. Now that Brother Tat is condolences to your family. We need to cherish those in front of us and live everyday well! I miss you Brother Tat! Let's work together again in the next life!"

Nancy Sit Ka Yin sadly said that the first time she worked with Brother Tat was in the film that she and Michael Lai Siu Tin wrote and directed, DOG BITES DOG BONE (GAU AU GAU GWUT). She really thanked Brother Tat for giving a lot of suggestions while making the film. The second time they worked together was on the film GOD OF COOKERY. She felt that only Brother Tat was able to achieve many of the comedic spots. She then understood when he and Chow Sing Chi were so well matched. Working with Brother Tat also benefit her a lot. She said after making the movie she and Brother Tat had contact again. "Earlier I didn't know he was ill, I only knew that he was much thinner. So when I heard he was hospitalized for liver cancer, I was very upset. In March last year, Brother Tat originally agreed to appear on CANTOPOP AT 50, but at the time he was in Malaysia. He even said that after the pandemic he would come back and appear on the program." Brother Tat's TVB training class classmate, Tang Ying Man said that they met in 1973. He mentioned in the ENJOY YOURSELF TONIGHT group that he considered make a special for Brother Tat in his memory. He felt that birth, aging, illness and death were all arranged in Heaven. Earlier when he saw Brother Tat kept taking morphine shots he knew how much pain he was in. May he rest in peace. He hoped that Ng would met their late classmate, director Ringo Lam Lan Tung, in heaven. He also said that they used to have gathering once in awhile and Ng Man Tat fought to pay the bill every time. Another TVB training class classmate Chow Yun Fat responded, "Brother Tat, have a safe journey!"

Athena Chu Yan said, "He was a great actor, well worthy of other's respect. Back then when we worked together I was still new, and we were working overseas. He told me to eat with him at every meal. I really miss him."

Ng Chi Hung said, "A year ago we had dinner together. The most important is that he passed peacefully. I originally planned to return from the Mainland to visit him. (Any regret?) No, life and death is hard to say."

Wong Yat Shan said, "He was very easygoing. He made movies because he wanted to bring the audience joy. I hope that everyone would remember him."

Miriam Yeung Chin Wa said, "We grew up with his work. He was a very talented and humorous elder. I was very fortunate to have worked with him."

Jeana Ho Pui Yu said, "He was very kind. He would talk about how to study a character. He taught me a lot."

Always concerned with the Hong Kong cultural and show business scene, Kenneth Fok Kai Kong also expressed that Ng Man Tat's movie videos cured his homesickness while studying abroad. He thanked Brother Tat for growing up with him and wished him a safe journey. After working with Brother Tat for years, Kingdom Yuen King Tan and Lam Tsz Chung admitted that Brother Tat would often help young generations. His passing was a loss to show business, and they regretted that they would never work together again.

Lam Tsz Chung (Chubby Chung)'s first film in the business was SHAOLIN SOCCER with Brother Tat. About Brother Tat's passing, he sorrowfully said, "His illness came very suddenly. Although I was mentally prepared I would definitely miss him. The first time I worked with Brother Tat was SHAOLIN SOCCER. Then we on and off worked together on 7 or 8 movies. Brother Tat treated me like a nephew. He taught me a lot. Now when I make movies I would think if Brother Tat was in the role, how would he play it." Chubby Chung said that last week he would return to the quarantine in the Mainland to prepare for work, but he would try to make time to return to Hong Kong to attend Brother Tat's funeral.

As for being unable to visit Brother Tat at the hospital, Chubby Chung said that half a month ago he originally thought about visiting Brother Tat, but because he was not family the hospital did not permit the visit. In addition Brother Tat just had a major surgery and treatment that day, he was very tired. Thus he was unable to see Brother Tat.

Chubby Chung revealed that originally in December last year he had a chance to see Brother Tat, but unfortunately they never did. "Originally I wanted to ask Brother Tat make TEN BROTHERS, to play the ten brothers' Papa. Brother Tat as very interested. I was making a movie in Shenzhen a the time and thought about meeting him about the new film. I only had a few days left before the production wrap, then Brother Tat went to Macau. Because he was ailing he then went to Hong Kong. I never thought......" He said that for the new film he originally planned to have Brother Tat and Kingdom Yuen King Tan as its stars and start production in April or May in the Mainland. Now that Brother Tat passed, he would set aside the plan. Was the new film tailored for Brother Tat? Chubby Chung said, "Brother Tat said never ever tailor for him. He only performed because he loved acting. When I wrote the script I deliberately wrote the role differently from Brother Tat's previous ones. Brother Tat was very interested, so we were talking about scheduling issues."

Yuen King Tat worked with Brother Tat countless times. She responded that she really missed him. She praised Brother Tat as willing to help the younger generation and even teach them about life. She would always remember the life lessons he taught her. In the business everyone would raise their thumb when Brother Tat was mentioned. Thus she thought Brother Tat's passing was not just a film industry loss, but show business also lost a great teacher and friend.

Danny Chan Kwok Kwan was very sadden by the news of Brother Tat's passing. "Brother Tat's lessons will be useful to me for the rest of my life. He took great care of us younger folks. The last time I saw him was in October last year. I dined with Brother Tat in Beijing, at the time he was still in decent spirit."

As everyone knows, Ng Man Tat was Chow Sing Chi's "gold label green leaf". His credit in creating a "Mo Le Tau Dynasty" for Lord Sing could not be ignored.

They have already begun working together at TVB, on the series THE FINAL COMBAT and THE JUSTICE OF LIFE. Starting in 1990, Brother Tat also participated in many of Lord Sing's classic films -- TRICKY BRAINS, ALL FOR THE WINNER, GOD OF GAMBLERS 2 (DOH HUP), FIGHT BACK TO SCHOOL (TOH HOK WAI LUNG), FIGHT BACK TO SCHOOL 2, JUSTICE MY FOOT!, GOD OF COOKERY, KING OF COMEDY, SHAOLIN SOCCER and others.

However when Lord Sing started work on KUNG FU HUSTLE in 2004, they were rumored to be at odds. Brother Tat once publicly said, "The KUNG FU HUSTLE lead originally me." He also said, "Unless Chow Sing Chi let me star I wouldn't perform." Brother Tat later mentioned that they were not at odds, but actually they were drifting further and further apart and they never worked together again. Reportedly, Brother Tat in order to make this film for Lord Sing turned down all film offers and thus suffered serious losses.

Later Lord Sing again invited him to perform in MERMAID, but Brother Tat was ailing and declined. Later Brother Tat revealed that when he was hospitalized Lord Sing showed concerned, but perhaps because he turned down MERMAID due to his health, they went their separate ways. Brother Tat's THE WANDERING EARTH made 4.686 billion yuan RMB at the Mainland box office. Lord Sing's same period release NEW KING OF COMEDY only made over 600 million yuan RMB. Later when asked whether he and Lord Sing would work together again, Brother Tat laughed and said, "I am not dead yet, he hasn't retired yet. We would definitely have a chance." Unfortunately as Brother Tat passed away yesterday, this reunion wish became a regret.

Ng Man Tat in film and television for 45 years, making the jump from television to the big screen. Brother Tat had a wide range but few opportunities to play the lead. He received 4 Hong Kong Film Award nominations and 2 Golden Horse Award nominations, all for Best Supporting Actor. Finally with A MOMENT OF ROMANCE he won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor.

In 1973, Brother Tat applied for the TVB artist training class. Chow Yun Fat, the late director Ringo Lam Lan Tung, Lo Hoi Pang and others were his TVB third training class classmates. In the class he excelled and after graduating among the top five he signed a contract with the company. He and Lo Hoi Pang were seen as the future stars with comedy potential.

In 1975, Brother Tat started to perform on TVB countless times and almost all were supporting roles. His earlier performance was in the CHINESE FOLKLORE series; in 1979 with the role of "Wu Teet Fa" in CHOR LAU HEUNG he began to gain attention. Since then his career took off. The overnight success left him with an addiction to gambling. In 1980 he owed HK$ 300,000 in gambling debts but he had no role. At the time he asked Chow Yun Fat to lend him money but was turned down. He considered suicide. Later a director gave him an opportunity. Brother Tat learned his lesson and focused on work, in 3 years time he paid off the debt and successfully rose again. Since then he fell in love with acting.

In 1985 Brother Tat was assigned to perform in POLICE CADET with Tony Leung Chiu Wai. After that many producers used him as his series offers kept coming. In 1990, Brother Tat began to become active in the film industry. That year with the Stephen Chow Sing Chi starred ALL FOR THE WINNER (DOH SING) he received the Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor nomination. Next year he with A MOMENT OF ROMANCE finally won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor award. This was also Brother Tat's only acting award in his film career. At the time when Fat Gor congratulated him, Brother Tat hated Fat Gor for not being willing to lend him money and pretended not to see him. Later someone told Brother Tat that Fat Gor recommended him for A MOMENT OF ROMANCE, then Brother Tat finally made up with Fat Gor. Years later Brother Tat in an interview thanked Fat Gor for not lending him money back then, otherwise he would just keep relying on others and never stand up on his own.

Ng Man Tat's love life was just as exciting. In 1976, he and his first wife Mak Lei Lei wed and had twin daughters. Later he fell for TVB artist Lo Siu Chi, after years of living together they had a daughter. In 1993 while working on the film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL, TOO (FA TIN HEI SI), he clicked with Miss Malaysia second runner up Hou Shan Yin. The next year he and Mak Lei Lei divorced. Two years later he married Hou Shan Yin in Malaysia and had a son and a daughter.

He also was a good father. Despite his poor health in recent years he still worked on movies in hopes of bearing the child support for his five children. His monthly expenses were rumored to be in 10 figures, but since he was hospitalized for heart failure in 2014 he began to reduce production. He also followed friend Lok Ying Kwan's advice and wrote a will to split his assets. Yesterday he was rumored to have left over 10 million in asset. His current wife would take half and the rest would be divided between his five children.

Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi) and Maverick Mak Chau Sing held their wedding ceremony yesterday on the Lantern Festival. Although due to the pandemic they were unable to hold a large banquet as only around 80 members of the family and friends were invited to bear witness, Tong Yi received a personal attendance and the largest dragon and phoenix bracelet from boss Albert Yeung Sau Sing. Her parents wanted more grandchildren so they kept turning her bracelets. The newlyweds would like to wait until the baby's one month banquet to celebrate with family and friends again!

Yesterday was Tong Yi and Mak Chau Sing's big day. They chose to hold their wedding certificate signing ceremony on the Lantern Festival. Around 10AM, the new couple wore Chinese wedding costumes and went for a ride from their wedding venue in the bridal vehicle. Before departing the groom kissed his wife with the mask on twice. 30 minutes later, the couple returned to the venue to prepare for the registration ceremony. Amigo Chui Kin Bong was the master of ceremony. Guests included Emperor group chief Albert Yeung Sau Sing, Emperor Music CEO Hui Pui Si, Emperor Entertainment artist management general manager Lester, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Siu Mei, choreographer Sunny Wong, Elaine Lok Yi Ling, Kan Man Dik and Dear Jane member Jackal.

Attending Tong Yi and Mak Chau Sing's wedding ceremony, Kwok Fu Sing happily said that he watched Mak Chau Sing grow up. Mak helped him with concert before, and slowly developed from there. He was very happy to watch him grown. Mak's wife Tong Yi worked with Sing Sing on the film COLD WAR (HONG JIN), at the time she even played his secretary. Recently they also worked together on DISCONNECT'D (DUEN MONG). Their wedding was a joyous event and he had to come. As for his gift, Sing Sing said that lai see would be better, as they could buy whatever they wanted. Did he give them any marital and parenting advice? Sing Sing said, "They are with child, today is their big day and they are very busy. I would wait until I see them again to start talking about being a Papa. That would be the happiest. (Did you remind him to take care of his wife?) Definitely."

Around 4PM, Tong Yi in evening wear came to meet the media with her husband Mak Chau Sing, a wedding ring and a 2 karat engagement ring. They kissed twice per the media's request. When asked about the baby's gender, she kept mysterious and said that the answer would be revealed later. She would not mind either sex, Chau Sing joked, "Twins would be great!" Tong Yi revealed that her parents and family all said that her belly after four months was larger than usual. She also said that she really wanted to raise her baby herself, but after maternity she would have to prepare to return to work at anytime. Chau Sing anxiously told her rest before returning to work. As for whether they would have another they would leave it to Heaven. Tong Yi joked hat her parents turned dragon and phoenix bracelets five or six times, symbolizing how many children they would have. Albert Yeung Sau Sing also gave her the largest dragon and phoenix bracelet on her arm.

They both cried at the wedding ceremony. They admitted that it had many touching moments, especially their loving words for their parents. When they saw their parents they already cried. Chau Sing received the family heirloom from his parents, a gold ring that came from his maternal grandmother to his father to him. Mama gave him a gold chain that she secretly bought when he turned 18. As for the vow, Chau Sing revealed that he said "I love you for a lifetime". Tong Yi said that everyday has been like a dream after meeting her husband. She was very happy that he appeared and praised him for his patience and tolerance of her.

Under the pandemic the wedding ceremony could not invite too many guests, as 80 some members of the family and friends were in five halls. Chau Sing only invited a group of choreographers, and was unable to invite many artist friends. Fellow dancers were only notified online. Thus he hoped that later he would be able to have a wedding banquet. Tong Yi would like to wait until after having the baby at the end of July and getting back into shape. Chau Sing pointed out that having the baby's one month banquet at the same time would be the best.

Tong Yi's wedding gown look was praised as her sexiest in her career. Chau Sing joked that the most important was for his wife to be pretty. The newlyweds performed all the traditional wedding ceremonies. Two nights ago they each performed the traditional hair ceremony and each posted on social media photos of their dragon and phoenix candles. Chau Sing thanked his family for their love and care as all the emotions rushed to his heart. They also posted their wedding photos at the same time. Wearing masks they held hands and loving stared at each other. The pregnant Tong Yi's belly was not showing yet in the photo. They posted, "Tomorrow our ceremony will officially take place. Having a wedding under the pandemic isn't easy at all. Due to the gathering restriction order, guest numbers are limited. We wish that the pandemic would pass soon, then we would hold a large wedding ceremony and invite all the family and friends." Friends posted their blessing, Bob Lam Sing Bun even wrote on Mak Chau Sing's social media, "Waiting for you to seriously get hammered once."
