Eric Kot Man Fai, Man Lim Chung, Alan Chan Yu Chien and Manfred Wong (Man Jun) earlier attended the MTR Hong Kong Station's REMINISCING LESLIE CHEUNG 20TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITION. The exhibit had valuable collections on loan from Cheung Kwok Wing fans and friends, including Andrew Lam Man Chung's hand written lyrics to DON'T INTEND TO SLEEP, Manfred Wong's LOVE FLAME and WHO CAN RELATE autographed white vinyl records, and Vincent Kok Tak Chiu's photos from the sets of ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL (GA YAU HEI SI), ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL TOO (FA TIN HEI SI), and OKINAWA RENDEZ-VOUS (LUEN JIN CHUNG SING). Kot Man Fai even created 1:1 scale Gor Gor sculpture. Kot Man Fai said, "Creating Gor Gor's bust took two weeks. Although I wasn't considered close with Gor Gor before, from Sister Mui (Anita Mui Yim Fong) he learned about Gor Gor's work ethics. Thus I admired him very much. He is well worth learning from."

Man Lim Chung remembered working with Gor Gor on HAPPY TOGETHER (CHUN GUONG JA SIT) in Argentina. "During the shoot I had to return to Hong Kong to prepare for my wedding. After Gor Gor found out, he gave me a tight embrace. He not only was happy for me but also joked that 'We too want to get married'. Earlier when I was cleaning up I found a 3R film of a photo of Gor Gor and us in Argentina." Chan Yu Chien revealed that at home he had a collection of Gor Gor's album covers. He said that although he and Gor Gor were not too familiar, Gor Gor frequently invited him to dinner at his place. "He really valued relationships."
