Law Kar Ying, Mak Cheung Ching, Margiela K (Kwok Sze Lam), Ken Wong Tak Bun two nighs ago attended the production wrap banquet for their film SAI FONG YAU GEI ji TONG JUNG CHAI CHOR GAI. Brother Kar Ying thought his wife Liza Wang Ming Chuen's comments was too mild mannered and not extreme enough. She should have said it like it was. In the film Brother Kar Ying and Kwok Sze Lam had a mouth to mouth Chinese shortbread eating scene. Kwok Sze Lam said that she did not dare to post the photo online as she did not want to anger Ah Jeh. Brother Kar Ying said, "She wouldn't be mad. Ah Jeh might think it wasn't extreme enough, not to mention it wasn't a real kiss."

Ah Jeh's "partisanship" comment became to town of the town. Brother Kar Ying said, "I think she wasn't extreme enough, she should daringly tell it like it is. The program is live and wouldn't be cut. She was too mild mannered, she should have directly yelled, for the good of TVB you should listen to me, at the very least I have been with TVB for 50 years. We should hire more people back, the salary can't be too low otherwise talent would be lost. Now many people are going to work in the Mainland, how big of a deal are you. So Ah Jeh was already polite, I am a tough guy and not a TVB employee. I feel she should say what needs to be said. (Has Ah Jeh said the company had many 'hilltops'?) Hilltops require tributes. Different hilltops mean many kings hogging hilltops before. TVB has many fortress masters, many kings, fortress master is the head of the bandits. However they do it for Heaven, they have honor. They are for the good of the company and of themselves. Actors have it the worst. The company should give them chances, they don't make money unless they go outside and fight."

Mak Cheung Ching said, "I heard cheers in the audience. In every company unity is the most important, without any divisions. Ah Jeh is the most qualified to talk, she represents the artists. I believe the boss heard her." As for the award results, Mak Bau was happy for Best Actress Natalie Tong Sze Wing and Most Improved Mayanne Mak. He too wanted to win the host award, but how could he compare to Sister Dodo (Carol Cheng Yui Ling). He was already happy that he got an award that night. As Bobby Auyeung Chun Wa said, if you do your best, Heaven would definitely reward you.

Dayo Wong Tze Wah and Charmaine Sheh Sze man worked together after on the film AGENT MR. CHAN (DUNG DUK DUT GUNG). This time Wong Tze Wah turned into a special agent and appeared in many funny disguises in the film.

Wong Tze Wah said that he had so many disguises he could not remember how many, as he wanted the audience to feel they got more than they could handle. His favorite was the virtual reality hell look. He even said that the set felt like going to Kabukicho in Japan. He said, " "On the night of the day we hogged someone's bridge and the shoot was very exciting. Someone came over to tell us, 'I built this bridge! Now I am not letting you shoot here.' Because the the hell set was on the bridge, I have even seen anyone said that they built the bridge! Everyone immediately apologized for the inconvenience. So through respecting him we respected his bridge."

Working together again after 7 or 8 years, Sheh Sze Man praised Wong Tze Wah to be as cool as always. Wong Tze Wah joked that she changed a lot. She used to be "starlet" bu this time she was already a superstar. Ah Sheh said, "You are even more amazing! You used to be human, now you are a god!" Wong Tze Wah struck back and said that nowadays there were more gods than humans but stressed that Ah Sheh now had a superstar presence that everyone would recognize her for. Speaking of being named a god, Tze Wah said, "It has been a joke all along, since there are more gods than people what does it matter?"

Speaking of the numerous superstar guest stars like Sammi Cheng Sau Man, Michael Hui Koon Man and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Wong Tze Wah stated the he never thought about asking superstars to perform. Because in the film two superstars got into trouble, he planned to ask two actors to play them. However the producer and the director felt that they had to find superstars. He said, "Two superstars had accidents, which superstars would be willing to play superstars who had accidents? I never expected that they really found two superstars. Then everyday the guest stars were all superstars. Of course I didn't call in favors, I believed that everyone came to rescue me. I really want to thank so many friends, but I didn't ask any of me."

Director Soi Cheang Pou Soi yesterday spoke on the radio about his new film THE MONKEY KING 3 (SAI YAU GEI NUI YI GOK) and said that Law Chung Him, Gigi Leung Wing Kei, Lin Chiling and others after makeup were almost unrecognizable. Cheang Pou Soi said that their characters required that. He said, "They can't lose the original intent in order to recognize their appearance. Everyone pay money to watch the movie because they want to see the production, so the production has to be there. How hard is Him Jai's special effect makeup. His entire body is fake, even the muscles; even though he is very big himself. (Aren't Him Jai's muscles wasted?) Him Jai said that for the next one he can perform without clothes."

As for Aaron Kwok Fu Sing playing Sun Wukong again, he said that this time Sing Sing's character would be even more monkey. "Sing Sing this time would be wilder, the comedic sense is much stronger. He would be a happy Sun Wukong. (Because he is already married?) When he made it he wasn't married yet, bu the feeling was somewhat different. However he had a tough time, he even had mood swings. Sing Sing would suppress his emotions. When I saw him I wanted to finish sooner, because in three months everyday he had to spend four hours in makeup, then shoot for eight hours, makeup removal took an hour, he slept for three or four hours and returned to work again. It was quite a torture."

Aside from Sing Sing and Him Jai, Leung Wing Kei also gave up her looks. Director Leung joked that he grew up listening to Gigi's songs and felt that her character would be very refreshing. In order to convince the audience he would have to change her appearance to convince even herself. Thus he wanted to raise her hairline as little like in Noh so she would have a little more dominance. He had to sacrifice Gigi's beauty a little, but the look could help her get into character. Was Gigi object to it at first? He said, "No, surprisingly no. This first makeup test took eight hours." Speaking of great sacrifice, he felt that the Lin Chiling played "River God's" sacrifice was even great. She was pretty and in good shape, in the film a masculine Chiling would be seen. Why did he took away all the actors' advantages? He said, "I am very afraid that the audience would just watch their looks. I feel Chiling and Gigi aren't just very pretty outside. Chiling didn't have any line but performed very well." Did Chiling's rumored boyfriend Jerry Yan visit the set? He said, "I didn't really notice, I don't know if she hid him, no no no, really no."

Tony Leung Chiu Wai yesterday attended his film MONSTER HUN 2 (JOOK YIU GEI 2)'s "Wuba giant balloon launching". Rarely making public appearances, Wai Jai not only attracted many to look on and take photos but also the event host Yam Yuk Ying asked him for a selfie on the stage. Playing the electrifying eyed gambler in the film, Wai Jai was asked if he had any sure win secret to betting? Wai Jai said, "In the Lunar New Year I would play mahjong and cards like ordinary people, but whether I lose or win I would leave after playing for a few minutes. This is the secret."

Wai Jai said that he has not attended an outdoor promotional event in years. The last time was the film INFERNAL AFFAIRS (MO GAN DOH)'s outdoor promotion. Would he appear more in Hong Kong? He said, "I hope so, normally when I am not working I rarely go out." He said that his new hair cut was easy to take care of. Because he liked to water ski and ski, sometimes when he stopped and rested in the middle he would run into people asking for photos. He did not know whether to agree or not because his hair would stand up like he just woke up. Wai Jai said that he just returned from skiing in Hokkaido. His wife Carina Lau Ka Ling was busy at work and did not go with him. They would go again after Lunar New Year's Day. He also revealed that he would spend this Lunar New Year in Hong Kong. In past years he went skiing, but the location would be too slippery for Mommy. He would probably be in Hong Kong on Valentine's Day too but he probably would prepare any special gift. Has he seen Ka Ling's film IN YOUR DREAMS? Wai Jai said that he still has not have the time to. "I haven't seen a lot of movies yet. Because Ka Ling and I had to vote for the Oscars, we got 60 to 70 movies to watch. I wanted to watch some at the movies. Now I have seen a few, but at most I would watch three a day. (Has Ka Ling seen all the movies?) Definitely not, she is so busy. (Ka Ling said that the lead actor Ng Siu Hin resembled you?) Useless like me. (Do you agree?) I haven't even seen his picture, I only know he's new. I would mainly watch how she did." For this Lunar New Year, Wai Jai and Ka Ling would face off. Wai Jai said that he has not made a Lunar New Year film in a long time. He also said that if Ka Ling would invite him he would ask her film's Valentine's Day premiere.

Tam Yuk Ying said that the last time she saw Wai Jai was already ten years ago. Each time they met they would catch up. Has she thought about a dinner with fellow 430 SPACE SHUTTLE hosts? She believed that it would be rather hard. Speaking of rumors that she has already secretly wed her first boyfriend 20 years ago, she seemed to be prepared when asked if she was married. "Seemingly when I got married I really have to announce it. Right now I am very happy, can't you tell? (Would you not officially say whether you are married or not?) I haven't thought about it, now I am very happy, I am very pleased with everything. It was my choice, no one forced me. (Would you take the extra step and sign the paper?) People would always change their minds, I really don't know."

The TVB Anniversary Awards 2017 took place last night at the TVB City in Tseung Kwan O. This year the event moved the opening to the Studio 1 parking lot. Almost 100 artists walked the simple red carpet and posed for a group photo. The reason was for the TVB 50th anniversary, TVB's big logo could be included in the shot. Artists were divided into two rows. In the middle were Moses Chan Ho, Ali Lee, Vincent Wong Ho Shun and others. On the other side were Nancy Wu Ting Yan, Carol Cheng Yui Ling, Kristal Tin Yui Nei and others.

Nancy Sit Ka Ying walked the red carpet solo. When she took the stairs James Ng Yip Kwan darted up to lend her a hand. They also spoke about the rumor while working on a program in Taiwan. Sister Ka Yin cracked up and said, "Earlier I said that he was wooing me, and I apologized to him in our group. Kwan Gor didn't mind and even called me 'Piggy'. He is very humorous. I can't believe I can attract 27 year old guys and made him very attentive to me. Kwan Gor often treated in Taiwan, he is also very smart." Kwan Gor was sweating bullets next to her. Sister Ka Yin joked, "Young people are raging, I have to keep my distance. I am afraid he might get impulsive."

Kenneth Ma Kwok Ming and girlfriend Jacqueline Wong Sum Ying spoke backstage. Sum Ying two days ago celebrated her 29th birthday early with her family. When she left she stated that boyfriend Ma Kwok Ming was not present. Actually Ma Ming left through the back door in a hurry. Sum Wing was caught in a lie. Last night Ma Ming and Sum Wing spoke to the media together. Sum Wing said that after Ma Ming met her entire family for the first time, Sum Wing said that her family had a decent impression of him. He was a nice guy to begin with. Ma Ming also admitted that earlier they went on vacation in Holland for 7 or 8 days. Since neither has been there before they could get to know Holland together. Speaking of unwilling to public their couple relationship, they agreed, "We don't need to publicize it like this, when we have a major decision then we would announce it." As for Ma Ming's sneaky whereabouts two nights ago, he explained, "If I come right out it would be like a show, I didn't want it to be too awkward so I left out the back. Thank you media for saying that I left in a taxi, so I can promote THE EXORCIST'S METER as well."
