Bob Lam Sing Bun, Don Li Yat Long and Raymond Chiu Wing Hung starred in the film KONG WU SAM SOR (THREE MOB IDIOTS) yesterday held a production start ceremony in Lei Yue Mun. The film's investor Milla Ching Chi Yu said that this was the first shot, the investment was around HK$ 2 million because actor salaries were very expensive.

The lead actors dressed in "VIP on top, showing off below" fashion. In the film the trio originally was Wise Guys but stumbled their way into becoming gigolos. Bob revealed that Don was the happiest as he would have a love scene with Wong Ha Wai. Don said, "Before signing the contract I didn't know that I would have a love scene with Aunt Ha Wai. After I found out I wanted to give the money back to the company, because I would do a love scene with Ha Wai BB for free. In my heart 100 girls can't compare to Aunt Ha Wai." He also joked that he would share with his brothers, Chiu Wing Hung would get the kiss and Bob the bed scene. He would just watch from the bedside. After the photo opportunity, Bob again pushed Don to Aunt Ha Wai and told her to kiss Don. Don pretended to enjoy it. Bob was also lucky in the film as several pseudo models would feel him up. Bob said, "They would miss the important area, the important area is left for the old lady to feel."

Joe Lam Jok yesterday attended his first film production ceremony start. He got shy around Gloria Wong Yung and Yumi Wan Chun Hei. Finally the two girls took him by the shoulder for a photo. Lam Jok revealed that in the film he would guest star as a writer. Was this his first time? Lam Jok joked, "Do you have to call it that?" He said that he was not used to having his hair done. Would he need to be slapped in the film? He said, "I haven't read the script yet, it shouldn't be too difficult. I am not the one doing the slapping. (Does Mommy allow?) She probably wants me to make something of myself, so she isn't afraid of any sacrifice I make. I don't have to worry about her." As for his bottom line, he denied that he said that he would accept nude performance. It would depend on his co-star and a lot of factors. Would the co-star be Louisa Mak Ming Sze? He avoided the subject. "Don't say anything more, as soon as we talk about her there would be a lot of ripples." Some claimed that he took advantage of his former girlfriend's comments . Mak Ming Sze replied that as long as it was not physical she was fine. Lam Jok said that he read about it but had no comment.

He also said that no one told him that the film would have so many pretty girls. As far as he knew he would not have any intimate interaction with the actresses. "I should've asked. I wouldn't fought for it. (Were you not afraid that your professional attorney image would be affected?) It was just talk." As for salary, he said that talking about money would very easy make people react. Thus he did not talk about money, as he hoped for a chance to develop a little. He also revealed that he was in negotiation for his next film and would make an announcement when the time would be right.

Wong Yung looked thinner. She explained that because she wanted to try a fitness contest so earlier she kept working out. Her weight has dropped to 90 pounds and she dropped a cup size. She had to new underwear. She also revealed that in the film she would not have any scene with Lam Jok. She mainly would seduce Bob and have physical contact with him. "I would touch him all over, (including the important part?) The story didn't require it, but I want to......the important part I am referring to is his face."

Artist Venus Wong Man Yik, Edward Ma Chi Wai and others two nights ago attended their new film TO LOVE OR NOT TO LOVE (CHOR LUEN YUT GEI: JIK NAM MUK YAU)'s premiere. Venus admitted that she did not need to ask her boyfriend Derek Tsang Kwok Cheung's opinion about being sexy. "He isn't in Hong Kong, he hasn't even sent a message of encouragement to me. I am too busy to mind! (Did you look over what you are wearing?) I don't have this habit. I always tell him, if LUST, CAUTION asks me to play Tang Wei's role, do I or not? He says, 'You do!' (There is nudity!) He says with a good script he won't make a sound. He will understand! I have to see if I get over myself and have to talk with the company. (Does your boyfriend want to play Tony Leung Chiu Wai's role?) If he gets to be Leung Chiu Wai, he won't even care who will play Tang Wei!"

Ma Chi Wai said, "In the film I have a lot of intimate scenes with Venus. I thank her for her trust. (Do you thank Tsang Kwok Cheung for his trust in you as well?) Sorry, I didn't pay him any attention."

Comedy actress Lo Fun (originally named Cheung Wai Fun) passed away at age 63 from dermatomyositis caused lung failure. Services began yesterday at the Universal Funeral Parlor. The funeral ceremony will be Buddhist. The remains will be transported to Diamond Hill Crematorium for cremation.

Lo Fun's family including her brother and sister, nephew, niece and family and friends from Shanghai attended. Nephew Cheung Yuk Lun and niece Cheung Yuet Ling spoke to the media. Did Lo Fun's family sing to her on her dead bed. Her niece nodded. "When it was almost time, we sang her favorite LIGHT OF FRIENDSHIP. She waited until we finished the entire song before passing!"

Her niece said that Lo Fun was optimistic and often taught them to never do anything halfway and never give up. Her motto was a happy life. Thus the memorial program also used her motto as the theme. Her niece said, "When she was ill she was always very optimistic, she instead comforted us!"

Lo Fun's altar was decorated in elegant white. Her family chose her life photo for the final photo, and white lilies surrounded it. In the memorial special that was shown, Lo Fun after a performance on the stage said, "Call my name, I am leaving!" Then her song LIGHT OF FRIENDSHIP was played.

Friends in the business sent floral arrangements. They included Eric Tsang Chi Wai, his wife and family, Korean star Lee Kwang-Soo who worked with Lo Fun on two advertising campaigns, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Jackie Chan, Sean Lau Ching Wan, Wong Cho Lam and Leanne Li Yanan, Ng Man Tat, Ray Lui Leung Wai, Sylvia and Betty Lai, Benny Chan Ho Man and his wife, Yuen Qiu and Candy Man Suet Yee. Attendees included Tsang Ch Wai, Bak Leung Gum and his son, Wong Ha Wai, Chui Bo Fung, Mak Chui Han, Betty Lai (Ban Ban), Tsui Siu Ming and his family, Lau Siu Kwan. Tsang Chi Wai after bowing to Lo Fun quietly sat down with his wife and read the memorial program. After 40 minutes he left without accepting any interview.

Bak Leung Gum said that earlier he wanted to ask Lo Fun to work together on a movie, but she said that she was sick over the phone. At first he thought that she was pretending to be sick, later he learned about her misfortune. The director also lost the most suitable actress. Bak Leung Gum broke down. "She was a very good friend. We would always joke around together. I told her that even after she took off her clothes no one would know she was a girl. Although she was loud, she was actually very kind!"

The Federation of Hong Kong Filmmakers spring banquet took place last night. Guests included Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai), Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Shawn Yue Man Lok, Elaine Jin (Kam Yin Ling), Francis Ng Chun Yu, Philip Keung Ho Man, Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Grace Wong Kwan Hing and Alex Fong Lik Sun.

Chi Wai was asked about the death of May Ng Yuen Fong's husband Wilson Woo Ka Wah. He said that when he left he got a call from Alan Tam Wing Lun to ask if the news was real or not. Chi Wai only found out from the news. He said, "I am already very sadden, I haven't dared to call Ng Yuen Fong yet!" Speaking of his relationship with Woo Ka Wah, Chi Wai said that he has known him for over 30 years and felt that he was a super nice guy. He recalled that Woo Ka Wah although was not an artist still took part in founding the star soccer team, as he went overseas to play with Ng Yuen Fong and Anita Mui Yim Fong. "I am considered half a matchmaker for them. For awhile we were very close, almost going out every day and night, night and day. Now I am the most worried about not being able to send him on his final journey, because I will have to go to the Mainland to work on the Chin Kar Lok directed film in two days. I hope Kar Lok Jai would be able to release me then to bid him farewell."

Ng Chun Yu was also asked about the news. He was teary eyed and could not speak. Later he only replied, "Today is a joyous event, I don't want to talk about anything that would upset anyone. Some things still haven't been cleared up yet, just pretend that I haven't received this news!"

Yue Man Lok came straight from the airport. He said that he was "nauseous" from rushing over. Speaking of his MAD WORLD (YUT LIM MO MING) Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor nomination, Lok Jai said that he was a rookie and did not dare to think too much. Then if he won he would be even happier. Speaking of him dating the Taiwan belt king' daughter Sarah Wang. Lok Jai admitted that he liked her for being simple enough.

Lam Ka Tung repeated as the spring banquet planner. He said that each affiliated organization spent two months on the event. This year as usual the Hong Kong Film Award nominees, new directors and new actors were invited. Aside from Tony Leung Ka Fa who was working overseas, most artists were very supportive. Even film company bosses came for "matchmaking".

Nancy Wu Ting Yan, Ava Liu (Yu Kiu), Bianca Wu Lam, Cindy Chan Sin Yeung yesterday attended a skin care product event. Yu Kiu would soon have a chance to work with Dayo Wong Tze Wah on a movie. She was very excited, "Earlier I saw Tze Wah at an event. At the time he was taking a photo with (Charmaine) Sheh Sze Man, (Shiga) Lin Sze Nga, I edited the photo so it was only my and his heads and posted it online. It's incredible to be able to work with him on a movie. Then we would have even more photo opportunities. I am his number one fan. (Would you be so nervous that you would have frequent bad takes?) I definitely would blush, I am the most afraid of not being able to hold back my laughter. Usually when he told jokes he would not laugh. However when I worked with (Ronald) Cheng Chung Kei I practiced a method and learned to bite my tongue. I would bite myself as soon as I laugh as a reminder. (Would you not be afraid of the huge pressure?) Earlier I was able to overcome it and worked with Lau Ching Wan and (Nicholas) Tse Ting Fung. That was my most nervous time, so I probably wouldn't have any problem with Wong Tze Wah."

After 30 years in the business, Philip Keung Ho Man with the film TRIVISA (SHU DAI JIU FUNG) received his first Hong Kong Film Award Best Supporting Actor nomination. Yesterday he said on the radio that he felt happy and honored. "On the day of the announcement, when I found out I got one I screamed. I scared my wife, but she immediately opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate with me." Hak Jai said that he would like to win but the other nominees were very strong as well. He would be happier for others if someone else won. He said, "My friends and people online really treat me well, they feel tense for me. I was already very happy to see the online comments, it's like a victory for me already!"

Speaking of his co-stars Gordon Lam Ka Tung and Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai)'s Best Actor nominations, Hak Jai said that they were only missing Jordan Chan Siu Chun and picked Ka Tung to have a better chance. "He always sat at a corner to prepare for the performance and gave me a lot of suggestions. We are very similar. We started on television, then we rose and fell. If he won it would be great!"

Chrissie Chau Sau Na and Jason Chan Pak Yu yesterday attended a fashion brand event. Sister Na had to throw 30 punches in 30 seconds, with Pak Yu as the "human sand bag"; Sister Na revealed that earlier when she worked on KICK ASS GIRLS (BAU 3 CHIU GIU WA) she fell in love with the sport of kick boxing. She felt very healthy after getting a good sweat, in addition during the shoot she injured her left heel ligament. The doctor said that it would be very hard to cure, the only way was to rest. Thus kick boxing could train other muscles to support the injured ligament and reduced the pressure to the would. However now her wound be would swollen during storms, so she would bring flats to change into if she knew that she had to be in heels for a long time. Sister Na trained more for the event and her shoulders were sore.

Sister Na in her film HUSBAND KILLERS (NUI JI FOOK SAU) yelled at Stephy Tang Lai Yun with foul language. She said, "I rarely get to use foul language out in the open. I rarely use it. Since everyone don't hear me use it a lot, when I did in the movies people on the set would laugh. I hear a lot of it on the set, which made it very pleasure and very familiar. However I am too natural or smooth with it. I would only use it at home when I get mad, I rarely use it with other people."

Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun), Fiona Sit Hoi Kei, Niki Chow Lai Kei attended the Suncity Group 10th anniversary night in Macau. Group chief Alvin Chau Cheok Wa said that the company has always had its roots in Macau. In the future it will be determined to continue to develop travel and entertainment businesses around the world.

Chau Cheok wa and Paco Wong revealed that the banquet will include 4000 guests, wth guest performers like Chow Kit Lun and Eason Chan Yik Shun. Nat Pak Chan Cheung, Alvin Lam Siu Ming, Albert Yeung Sau Sing, Michelle Wai Sze Nga, Kathy Yuen (Tong Yi), Angela Hui Ching Wan, Wilfred Lau Ho Lung, Alex Lam Tak Shun, Cecilia So Lai Shan, Mr. and Mrs Charles Heung Wa Keung. Did they offer superstars a lot of money to attend? Paco sad that he did not know, he had to thank Chairman Chou, Eason and other guest performers for lending a helping hand. Their relationships have always been good. Speaking of the group's 10th anniversary plan, Chau Cheok Wa said that it would depend on Paco. Paco said, "We will start work on a few action films, as for signing singers it will depend on the market. Ultimately the plan is to focus on film first. In recent years the company has performed well in the Mainland. Our goal is to become international. (Are you heading forward Hollywood?) One step at a time, right now we want to improve the action film that everyone recognizes us from."

Yeung Chin Wa said that she has not seen her husband Real Ting Chi Ko for two days already because lately he has been busy with the event last night. Her son had to go to school so she had to go to sleep early. Speaking of Paco's action film, Chin Wa would like to make one. "I have never worked on an action film. I would be very happy and satisfied with just trying one scene. Before having my son I was able to perform a bridge, now I have to stretch more to loosen my hip. However I can still deal with normal punches and kicks." Chn Wa also said that she had to start losing weight because earlier Isabella Kau Hung Ping thought that she was pregnant. In addition with LOVE OFF THE CUFF (CHUN GIU GAU JI MING) promotion on the way, she did not want anyone to mistake her for Shawn Yue Man Lok's mother.

Fiona last night did not have to perform. She was the happiest about the company inviting Stefanie Sun Yanzi to perform because she has always wanted to hear her sing. She said that the company read her mind. With a mini concert in April, Fiona practiced her singing and dancing more for new ideas but caught the flu. As for whether she will participate in the new action film, Fiona said that with a good script and a good director she would like to give it a try. How would she handle the action scene in such a frail state? She said, "I didn't take a day off for 365 days a year, I only had a little flu. I am the strongest and the toughest person in the company. I am not afraid of action scenes either, as I have had Muay Thai lessons before."
