Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Eason Chan Yik Shun and Taiwan star Sandrine Pinna (Cheung Yung Yung) yesterday attended a film promotion on a boat. They even mixed drinks. Currently working on a movie in Shanghai, Wai Jai will have to head to Beijing to start another film in Beijing and will be unable to celebrate his wife Carina Lau Ka Ling's birthday on the 8th. He will only give her a belated gift.

Speaking of the dispute between Ka Ling and Rosamund Kwan Chi Lam, Wai Jai said that he only found out from the news. His wife did not tell him so he never got to comfort her, but he was not surprised either. As for Kwan Chi Lam's interest in a film comeback, would he be interested in working with her? Wai Jai said, "Film productions are hard to say. They would be fated and cannot be deliberately arranged. You don't just play a character because you want to."

On the set did Eason initiate all the conversation with Wai Jai? Eason sad, "Everyone have been so focused on the movie. Instead after the wrap we became familiar, we chatted a little. He likes music and I like movies too. (Ka Ling said that Wai Jai was quite a big shot when he got you to record the film song demo!) Actually that day because I recorded first, producer Wong Kar Wai said that Wai Jai wasn't there yet so why didn't I record first. He sang pretty well, very emotional!" As for his wife Hilary Tsui Ho Ying and Josie Ho Chiu Yi's dispute, Eason said that it is already in the past and there is no need to talk more about it.

Yung Yung had a kiss scene with Takenshi Kaneshiro (Gum Sing Mo) in the film, and she felt sorry that she took away a god. She also praised Gum Sing Mo as very friendly and funny. Once she even laughed for two minutes before she was able to return to the shoot again.

Miriam Yeung Chin Wa yesterday attended an event. She just returned from Taiwan from working on the film LOVE OFF THE CUFF (CHUN GIU GAU JI MING) for three days and two nights. The film might wrap up production before Christmas for Chin Wa to stay in Hong Kong and celebrate the holiday with her family.

Chin Wa revealed that the Mainland location shoot mainly featured a romantic holiday with her and Shawn Yue Man Lok, and a nurse uniform scene in a hotel room. She said that she did not want to spoil anything but they did not have many intimate scenes. The result was more like a cartoon. If Sandra Ng Kwan Yu would make another GOLDEN CHICKEN, Chin Wa could go undercover as a cop with cosplay costumes. "I told my husband and he supported my work, but he was also afraid that I would embarrass him. He wanted me to appear at my best so he told me to lose weight!" Does her husband have interest in this area? Chin Wa said, "Not when we are parents. Only when you just met you would have this impulse. We have been together for ten years, you usually wouldn't ask your wife or girlfriend to dress up. You would be a little more traditional and conservative. If someone else dressed up you would take a glance! So the director also asked me not to be very sexy. The result was pretty funny!" The pregnant Michelle Chen was in a photo with the cast, did she join in? Chin Wa said not, they only met with friends in Taiwan.
