Hong Kong Women of Excellence in the Six Arts

Sylvia Chang (Cheung Ngai Ga) and Ann Hui On Wa last night both received from the Hong Kong Federation of Women the "Hong Kong Women of Excellence in the Six Arts" awards to honor their achievements and contributions. Cheung Ngai Ga and Hui On Wa both liked to play films about women. They have always admired each other and are looking forward to work together again after their collaboration several years ago; unfortunately they were both on their each own and no plan has been confirmed yet. They joked that before retirement they will definitely complete it. Cheung Ngai Ga revealed her other plans. "I will adapt my previous play into a film script for (Johnnie) To Kei Fung to direct at the end of the year. He and I started working together with ALL ABOUT AH LONG (AH LONG DIK GOO SI) and have known each other for over 20 years. We already have chemistry and don't have to worry about arguments." Speaking of To Kei Fung expressing his displeasure for Mainland film promotion style earlier and blasted the Shanghai Film Festival for not respecting him, she said that she has never participated in any Mainland promotion and did not know about the details. Aside from film work, she also had to take care of her family. She had no time for more promotion or film festival. Thus she had no idea. Hui On Wa said that in recent years she injected her personal experience into her work, for example A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH) was the issue of her fear about facing aging. She said, "I haven't considered writing an autobiography, wait another 20 years! I want to work with Cheung Ngai Ga again the most, I plan to tailor a script for her to star in. Can we switch our roles with me acting on screen? Definitely not, because I won't want to drag others down."
