Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai) yesterday continued to promote his new film ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE (LOK PAU BA OI CHING) in Penghu, Taiwan. Siu Chai yesterday morning almost 100 members of the media from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia on a boat ride to the famous landmark Qimei Island to dive. He even enjoyed the seafood Taiwan Abalone (Jiu Kong) with famous Taiwan host Lu Kung-Wei (Jiu Kong). Siu Chai said to Jiu Kong as he ate, "I am eating you, brother!"

Later they took a ride to visit famous landmarks, one of which was an important location in the film, Twin-Heart Fish Trap. Siu Chai took the megaphone and said, "This is a place where the ancestors built with rocks to catch fish. It looks like two hearts so it is called 'Twin Heart Fish Trap'. In the film I lied to Shu Qi about the legend that if she threw a rock toward the Twin-Heart Fish Trap she would meet her Mr. Right, which she believed was true." In real life, Siu Chai said that he was a "swindler" too. "I always promise my family or fans that I would meet with them and go on vacation with them, but because of work I have never fulfilled that and I swindled them." He admitted that his children would complain sometimes, but earlier he already took them to Taiwan to visit Grandpa and they had a lot of fun. IN addition, Siu Chai played music with his mobile phone for Gau Hung and the actresses from the film could perform a hilarious rendition of THE MOSQUITO SONG.

The black cat possessed her danced in the narrow joss paper offering store. With her dance background Tsz Shan easily performed a split, but she suffered for her cat eye look. "With that pair of glasses I couldn't see anything clearly and I was a little dizzy. I immediately became like a drunk cat." Tsz Shan in the new film not only challenged her acting and worked with animals but also sang the new film's theme song to showcase all of her talents.

  In a fantasy world far, far away, monsters ruled the earth. Then came human’s all-out war in an attempt to seize the land. They eventually succeeded in driving the monsters into the dark mountains. Ever since, the two races have lived in their separate worlds, until now. The monster world writhes in chaos as the dark lord plots to overthrow the throne by ordering the assassination of the pregnant monster queen, forcing her to take refuge in the human world. During the deadly pursuit, the dim-witted Tianyin is caught up in the middle. In order to save her heir, the dying monster queen spills her egg into Tianyin’s mouth, making him the bearer of the future monster king. Now the most wanted man, Tianyin and the newborn monster’s lives are at stake. Miraculously, rookie monster hunter Xiaonan saves the day. She offers to protect Tianyin under the condition that they sell the newborn monster for a good profit. Who would have thought, the fate of the human and monster races would lie in their hands. Do they have what it takes to confront the danger ahead?

The Eddie Peng Yu-Yan starred, Dante Lam Chiu Yin directed Emperor new film TO THE FORE (POR FUNG) will open soon. Recently Eddie as the first Greater Chinese region good will ambassador in its 112 year history attended the 2015 Tour de France finals in the Paris with the French sports minister, Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme and veteran film star Christopher Lambert and watched the race in the VIP area.

The host introduced Eddie's film TO to the audience in French. The chief publicly invited him to shoot there for the sequel. Eddie said, "I hope this film will perform well, then I will be able to come to Paris 'TO THE FORE' with Director Lam."

Actually the effort that Eddie contributed to the film was indescribable. Before the shoot he spent 11 hours a day to train, leaving a lot of "bicycle marks" all over his body. He rather enjoyed it. "Right I already have a bicycle, when I have time I would ride it for practice. If I have a chance I can to compete in an amateur race."

While shooting TO in Italy, Eddie was fortunate to run into world champion Rui Costa. Actually this scene was attentively arranged. After several negotiations Eddie and Choi Si-Won were permitted to be in the first two kilometers of a world class race. After the shoot they left the course to avoid affecting cyclists who were reserving their strength to accelerate. After the shoot Director Lam was very excited. Eddie did not dare to believe that it was real.

In addition, Eddie's TO THE FORE "cycling look" became the target of parody as many stars like Maggie Cheung Man Yuk, Huang Xiaoming, Kwai Lun-Mei were on the back of his bike in their classic film costumes. The photoshopped photos cracked up many.

Richie Jen (Yam Yin Chai)'s writing and directing debut film ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE (LOK PAU BA OI CHING) will open in Hong Kong in September. The inspiration for the film came from an old song GRANDMOTHER'S PENGHU BAY. Siu Chai yesterday played tour guide in Taipei to almost 100 visiting members of the media from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia and took them the "luxury" home in the film.

Siu Chai took his friend Lu Kung-Wei (Gau Hung) and the sisters from the film. He even played a guitarist as he played songs for everyone to dance to. Siu Chai said that he spent the last few days in Penghu for the promotional special. Everyday he went to the sea to look at corals and almost fainted from being in the sun; he also said that Shu Qi spent half a month to help him with his film and got very tanned. He felt bad and wanted to give some whitening product to her.

Siu Chai felt that his directing debut was very tough, especially in Penghu when he had to accommodate the shipping schedule and the tides. However he enjoyed the entire process very much. Siu Chai said that the people of Penghu were very friendly. During the shoot the locals gave him seafood; he said that the place was known for cuttlefish, sea urchin and spanner crabs. He almost got a nosebleed from all the eating that he did. In addition, the film yesterday held a screening. The Penghu authorities immediately announced that Siu Chai and Shu Qi to be "honorary residents", much to the surprise of Siu Chai.
