People also called out "Best Actor Fai", which brought a smile to his face. Ka Fai after his interview also posed for the media.

He revealed that he watched his competition's films and felt that his chance would not be too high. When he talked with fellow Best Actor Huang Bo he praised his acting as outstanding. He said, "Honestly the competition was strong. I thought I would lose. During the announcement of two winners I guessed that they were me and Huang Bo, I am very satisfied with the result!" As for the close score between him and Huang Bo, he said, "I guess the competition was very fierce. Other nominees are also very excellent, but I feel this result is great! Two nights ago I already called my wife. When I told her I won she was so happy she screamed. Our daughter said Mommy woke her up. She was almost scared to death!"

As for good friends Lau Ching Wan and (Anthony) Wong Chau Sun already called to congratulate."
Earlier Ka Fai joked that his salary will increase five folds. Yesterday he explained, "I only answered what was asked. The hike is market determined and beyond my control. I felt I won several awards my salary could be 100 million!"
With his December 2 birthday, Ka Fai admitted that the Golden Horse was his best birthday present. He said, "This gift can't be bought with money, more valuable than any gift. I feel this is the most expensive gift!" In addition, yesterday afternoon when he left the airport he ran into good friend Auyeung Chun Wai. Bobby joked, "So many flash bulbs are blocking my exit! You won again, you even got the gravy!" Bobby joked that only due to the mid day rerun of THE LEGENDARY FOUR ACES (GUM JONG SEI DAI CHOI JI) did he not forget about Ka Fai. Bobby even jokingly kneeled and bowed to the king. They also hug. Ka Fai brought the award to Bobby for a closer look. Bobby joked, "You really wanted this badly!" They also made plans for dinner then left separately.
