REIMAGINE: LESLIE CHEUNG



On March 1st, 2012, the ReImagine Leslie Cheung Concert was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center under the direction of lyricist Lin Xi and producer Alvin Leong as a tribute to the late legend who had left us for nine years. A group of Universal Music artists, including Sandy Lam, George Lam, Hacken Lee, Prudence Liew, Eason Chan, Kelly Chen, Karen Mok, Hins Cheung, Kay Tse, Eric Suen, Kary Ng, Mr., and Swing, took turns to make their own renditions of Leslie's unforgettable classics during the concert. The songs performed were mainly selected from the period after Leslie made his comeback to the music scene in 1995, during which he was considered to be most creative in terms of music and style.

This set comprises two DVDs with 26 tracks of live performance and behind-the-scenes footage from the concert, plus two CDs containing 18 songs the singers recorded in the studio.

Pretty impressive, these Chinese superstars have in the global scene, what recognition that they still pull:

Leslie Cheung Teresa Teng chosen as Top 20 global music icons on CNN

张国荣 - interview Leslie Cheung and Ye Daying - 'Time To Remember'


Although Leslie Cheung and Teresa Teng are not in this world anymore, but are still publicly recognized as role models. Recently, American program CNN is conducting an online poll called the "Top Five Global Music Icons". The late Leslie and Teresa were selected for the Top 20 world famous prominent singers in the past 50 years. They are also the only two Asian stars that were chosen. They are on par with Western stars like the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Madonna and the Rolling Stones. The poll results are out on August 25th.

FANS REMEMBER LESLIE CHEUNG


September 12 was the late superstar Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's 54th birthday. Every year his birthday or the anniversary of his death, fans would pay their respects and hold memorial events without fail in remembrance of this superstar. Gor Gor's manager Chan Suk Fun every year would pay her respect as usual. Yesterday morning Mrs. Chan brought her son Ka Ho and around 20 loyal Japanese fans to pay their respect. The Japanese fan folded 2588 cranes, because 25 sounded like smile and 88 meant forever. They represented Gor Gor's smile would forever be in his fans' hearts. Fans also wrote letters to Gor Gor. Then Japanese fans followed Chinese tradition and burnt offering to Gor Gor.

Mrs. Chan yesterday brought 9 types of fruit that Gor Gor loved, his favorite birthday cake and roses. Mrs. Chan brought these items along with Lydia Shum Din H and Roman Law Man's favorite appetizers and desserts and placed them on the table. She said, in recent years Gor
Gor's fans went from Gor Gor's former home at Central to Po Fook Hill to pay their respects. The most touching part for her was the Japanese fans still met once a month to share Gor Gor's music and movies. In addition, yesterday fans went to Gor Gor's former home and placed fresh
flowers there. At night, Hong Kong fans also held a memorial event.

^ I'm not sure, but I will look out for them.

I can say that I watched one of his final movies, really good Okinawa Rendez-vous aka 戀戰沖繩 really quirky movie. of Leslie being a corrupt cop/theif and falling for Faye Wong. Like he's all stalking her as "fellow conman" / real cop Tony Leung Ka-fai tries to woo her, for sake of the "Big Heist"


and he's all tense cuz Faye is out with Big Tony lol


till he gets the last laugh and turns the tables on him:



its sweet, he finally gets the girl :)


and his theme song will always stick in my mind, one of the first tracks I heard when going back to The Motherland
張國榮Leslie - 沒有愛[HD]


He was just doing his Big Heat Concert too.

George Lam performs in memory of Leslie Cheung

哥哥張國榮,9周年


Yesterday April 1 was April Fool's Day, which was also the 9th anniversary of late superstar Gor Gor Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's death. Fans from around the world as suaul held memorials at numerous locations like Leslie's altar in Po Fook Shan, Madame Tussaud's Hong Kong, outside Mandarin Oriental Hotel and Chater Garden memorial event. In addition, a cinema also screened Gor Gor's film.



Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of Gor Gor's death, fans from Japan brought the thousand origami cranes that they folded to Gor Gor's Po Fook Shan altar. Gor Gor's friend Lin Yim Heung presented incense. Outside the Mandarin Oriental Hotel hundreds of fresh flowers that mainly consisted of white roses, lilies and orchids were placed in the forms of "Leslie", "We Love You" and "Gor". When Ms. Xu who came from Beijing presented flowers she broke down in tears. She praised Gor Gor for loving his fans in life. The Post 80 born Maggie learned about him anew after Gor Gor's passing through his concerts and films. This time she even came from overseas to present flowers.



Last night around 6:45PM, fans moved to the playground across the street from the hotel and played Gor Gor's hits. Nearly 100 hundred fans held white candles in a moment of silence for Gor Gor, many already broke down in tears. At 8PM, fans held a memorial event at Chater Garden to look for Gor Gor off camera. Several hundreds of fans attended. George Lam Chi Cheung performed COUNTDOWN WITH YOU in memory of his late friend and provided a photo of Gor Gor kissing him in 1985 and videos of their
collaboration. Ah Lam even yelled on stage, "Cheung Kwok Wing, we will always remember you!" He also laments that in the video he saw friends like Teresa Tang Lai Kwan, Anita Mui Yim Fong, Danny Chan Pak Keung who all departed one after another. Ah Lam said that he met Cheung Kwok Wing for the first time at a singing contest in 1977. At the time many fans still have not been born yet. In addition, Tsui Hark, Lin Yim Fai, Wong Man Ling and Vincent Kok tak Siu also shared their film production experience with Gor Gor.

Here's Leslie Cheung and Stephen Chow mucking it up "I'm here to tell you about how Stephen treated kids like shit on 430 Spaceship (the kiddie show he used to host)" and Sing Yeh is like "Leslie, You can't talk that shit bout me!" XD

Such GREAT Fans!! The Japanese got mad respects  :bow: for a Chinese Legend.

Japanese Fans send 2656 origami cranes for Leslie Cheung





September 12 would have been Gor Gor Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's 56th birthday. 9 years after Gor Gor's passing, his friends and fans still miss him. Gor Gor's manager Chan Suk Fun along with her son Ka Ho and a group of friends and fans on the 12th went to Po Fuk Hill to celebrate Gor Gor's birthday. Japanese fans in the past years have sent thousand origami cranes to express their feeling for Gor Gor. This year's thousand origai crane theme was REDDEST, fans chosen red thousand origami cranes because they hoped to bring them his most suitable color, red, to him before the tenth anniversary of Gor Gor's passing. The craned numbered in 2656 to celebrate Gor Gor's 56th birthday. Even origami crane had a birthday blessing. Japanese fans will personally bring the cranes to Hong Kong and to Gor Gor at Bo Fuk Hill on the 12th.

Chan Suk Fun said that the she did not know what the 2656 cranes made. 56 was probably due to his age. This year the fans would probably continue to hold a memorial. She even planned to organize a large scale gathering next year for the tenth anniversary of Gor Gor's passing. Because fans missed him more, the event will be for the fans. It will be a show at the Hong Kong Coliseum and hopefully be broadcast to other locations over satellite so even more fans will be able to enjoy it.

Lotsa events surrounding his 10th anniversary of his death, April 1st. These FC ladies have applied for a Guinness World Record for paper cranes.

[2013.03.16] 2 MILLION ORIGAMI CRANES IN MEMORY OF LESLIE CHEUNG



Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing has passed away for ten years. Every year on Gor Gor's birthday and death anniversary his Japanese fans would present origami cranes. To commemorate the tenth anniversary of Gor Gor's passing, earlier fans collected over 1 million origami cranes and applied for the Guinness World Record. Gor Gor's friend and manager Chan Suk Fun revealed that they have already collected over 2 million origami cranes. Mrs. Chan said, "The application was a success, now we are just waiting for an examiner to confirm." Before the examination, Mrs. Chan asked fans and volunteers to open up the folded origami cranes because 2 million cranes would require a lot of human hands.

 Mrs. Chan revealed that the memorial concert at the end of the month will prohibit recording to avoid affecting the atmosphere and the live broadcast quality, thus viewers will not be able bring any photography equipment.

[2013.03.15] LESLIE CHEUNG'S SHOCKING MESSAGE WILL BE UNVEILED ATH THE END OF THE MONTH



Miss You Much, Leslie  in stores 2013-03-26

April 1 this year will the 10th anniversary of Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing (Gor Gor)'s passing. Gor Gor's friend and manager Chan Suk Fun on March 31st will organize a memorial concert. Chan Suk Fun urged fans to be on time because at the opening she had a very important message from Gor Gor to all the fans. Mrs. Chan said, "It's what Gor Gor wanted to say to everyone, (What is it about?) About himself."

 Mrs. Chan was afraid of revealing the message that Gor Gor left. She said, "This matter has been in my heart for ten years. Over those ten years I don't know how to express it. One night two or three months ago, I suddenly had a vision. I then thought of how to express the message to everyone. If the message is not said this time, it might never have a chance to be told in this lifetime." Was this important message Gor Gor's final words? Mrs. Chan said, "I can't say final words, it was Gor Gor's final message to everyone."

 How many people knew about this message? Mrs. Chan admitted that in a year or two after Gor Gor's passing she once told someone about this message. She said, "But this person wasn't Tong Tong. I didn't dare to tell him yet."

 Many singers will attend and participate that night, but Mrs. Chan did not want to give people the impression that she was promoting and declined to announce the list. She only revealed that over 15 singers and artists will perform. She said, "Many singers very sincerely called and asked if they could participate." As for the concert will be broadcast on TVB, Mrs. Chan said that nothing has been confirmed yet. Currently she is in negotiation with the broadcast media.

[2013.03.25] JACKY CHEUNG, VIVIAN CHOW, JOEY YUNG SING FOR LESLIE CHEUNG



Next Monday, April 1, will be the 10th anniversary of Gor Gor Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's passing. His former manager Chan Suk Fun will hold two different format memorial concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum to reminisce Gor Gor's glory with fans and viewers; on Sunday the 31st many of Gor Gor's friends will participate and perform in the MISS YOU MUCH LESLIE concert. Because Gor Gor had many real friends in the business, everyone hoped to be able to do their part on this day. They included "Song God" Jacky Cheung Hok Yau, Vivian Chow Wai Man, Kelly Chen Wai Lam and Joey Yung Cho Yi, the Grasshoppers and Julian Cheung Chi Lam. They recently have already begun to rehearse for the concert in order to make this a night to remember, to provide a perfect performance for Gor Gor's friends and fans and to leave a beautiful memory.

 Although the singers were busy they still took time to rehearse. This time the concert director Chan Suk Fun also attended; she not only provided suggestions for the performance but also wanted to personally thank the guests for their support for this memorial concert.

 Last week during rehearsal, Cheung Hok Yau and the crew held a surprise birthday part for Mrs. Chan. He and the crew schemed and suddenly brought a cake and flowers to Mrs. Chan as they sang the birthday song. Actually March 22nd was Mrs. Chan's birthday. Hok Yau was very attentive and even presented a surprise. Mrs. Chan said that originally in order to prepare for this concert and with her friend Teacher Hui Pui's passing she planned to quietly spend this birthday, but she was surprised and touched to receive everyone's well wishes.

 At the same time Mrs. Chan also thanked everyone for their support of the MISS YOU MUCH LESLIE concert. That night it will be broadcast globally for Gor fans around the world to remember Gor Gor together.

[2013.03.28] CHAN SIU BO REMEMBERS LESLIE CHEUNG'S INSISTENCE TO RECORD IN JAPAN



For the 10th anniversary of Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing (Gor Gor)'s passing, memorial activities have begun. Gor Gor's partner and friend Chan Siu Bo, designer Chan Yau Kin and official make up artist Eunice Wong yesterday attended the Final Encounter Leslie Cheung 10th Anniversary Commemorative Activities and displayed Gor Gor's classic records, concert tickets and other items. Chan Siu Bo shared his experience of working with Gor Gor. "When Gor Gor recorded NO INTENTION TO SLEEP (MO SUM SHUI MIN), he insisted on recording in Japan. Finally Chan Suk Fun thought of a good idea for him to participate in the Tokyo Music Festival and record there as well."

 Chan Siu Bo said that Gor Gor called him before his passing in 2003. "At the time he wasn't feeling well. Our contract was about to come to an end and he still owed a record. He said that he definitely would deliver the new record to me; because he wasn't feeling well, the final record's songs were edited from different recording versions. They differed from the past recording of an entire song." Has Gor Gor discussed his sexual orientation before he made it public? Chan Siu Bo said, "No, when he reached that stage, he really wanted people to know because at the time there were a lot of speculations. He was a very daring person, with sexual orientation, retirement, he would call me and ask if I saw them after he made them public like a little kid."

 Chan Yau Kin's first record cover for Gor Gor was YI PIAN CHI. He said, "At the time we were pretty much the same size, so I loaned the vest, bow tie, shirt and pants to him. He also made dinner for me." He found the vest that he loaned Gor Gor to be displayed at the event. Speaking of the day of Gor Gor's passing, Chan Yau Kin remembered it like it was yesterday. "At the time I was in Shanghai, after I received the bad news I didn't believe it."

 Chan Yau Kin said that before Gor Gor's passing they already had little contact. "Everyone want to hide themselves before something sudden happens and don't want to talk about it." Speaking of not having an official place for fans to pay their respect, Chan Yau Kin said, "No, everyone has an important place in their hearts for Gor Gor. They can remember him from looking at pictures, they don't have to pay their respect. Many fans would go to the Mandarin Oriental coffee shop in hopes that Gor Gor would appear. I am one of them."

 Speaking of Gor Gor's supposed huge inheritance to his beloved Donald Tong Hok Tak, Chan Siu Bo and Chan Yau Kin both said that they were not familiar with Tong Tong.

[2013.03.28] LESLIE CHEUNG'S INTIMATE PHOTO IS UNVEILED



The 10th anniversary of Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing's passing is 5 days ago. In the past 3650 days, aside from fans his beloved Donald Tong Hok Tak and his manager Chan Suk Fun missed Gor Gor the most. Gor Gor left his final affairs in life for Mrs. Chan to handle, but over 10 years no one neither asked nor dared to whether back then how she was able to withstand this painful ending? 10 years later, Mrs. Chan spoke about her endless love with Gor Gor. Gor Gor and Tong Tong's intimate photo is also unveiled.

 10 years ago on April Fool's Day April 1, everyone wished that it was only a joke but they must admit the fact that Cheung Kwok Wing has chosen to bid his farewell to the world. On that day, Chan Suk Fun originally planned to meet with Gor Gor at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel but received a call. Gor Gor told her that to wait for him to come downstairs at the hotel in 5 minutes. Mrs. Chan felt uneasy. Before Gor Gor arrived, she only heard a loud bang. Subconsciously she went over to the ambulance to find out the answer that she did not want to be true. After that, she handled the remaining matter for this superstar of a generation. That scene was not easy to forget in 10 years and she has not been able to either.

 C: Chan Suk Fun, R: Reporter

 Final Affair

 R: Mrs. Chan, it's been 10 years. No one has ever asked. Have your emotions been settled?

 C: Of course not. As long as Gor Gor is mentioned, that emotion comes. It can't be forgotten.

 R: We understand that Gor Gor trusted Tong Tong and you the most in his life. Because he even left the final journey in his life to you, your relationship is already a relative.

 C: If I am said to be a relative, I feel the term "our own people" would be more suitable. Because we were on the same boat, "our own people" who were intimate and shoulder to shoulder in battle. Our memories are truly numerous.

 Absolutely No Third Party

 R: Gor Gor asked you to handle his final journey in life and not Tong Tong. Reportedly a third party appeared between Gor Gor and Tong Tong and upset Gor Gor. Was that true?

 C: Absolutely no third party appeared. Their relationship has always been great. He always worried the most about what would happen to Tong Tong if something happened to him. Their relationship did not change. Gor Gor left the matter to me because he deeply believed that only I was able to be strong enough to organize his perfect funeral.

 Looking Back Together, With the Same Smile and Look

 Mrs. Chan almost broke down over the entire matter. When she thought of Leslie watching her handling his funeral, she firmly held onto this belief to complete the most perfect period for her "own person". Mrs. Chan even displayed a very memorable photo of Tong Tong and Gor Gor. In the photo they both looked back, with the same smile, look and gesture. The reporter also lamented "Does the world truly have a couple with such chemistry?" Although now only Tong Tong is left, actually they have already become one long ago. Tong Tong back then wrote "Everything comes to an end, this unbroken love has no end" to remember Gor Gor. 10 years later he quoted Su Shi's OF JINLING. "Ten years living and dead have drawn apart, I do nothing to remember but I cannot forget. Life is unpredictable, only love is forever. Let us continue to miss Cheung Kwok Wing. Tong Hok Tak". The few words were actually the memory of Tong Tong spending 3650 nights alone over 10 years. For this 10th anniversary, he chose this photo for the Miss You Much Leslie notebook to share with you who love Gor Gor.

[2013.03.29] TONY LEUNG CHIU WAI SINGS IN MEMORY OF LESLIE CHEUNG








Gor Gor Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing once said, "As long as when you mention the 80s and the 90s show business from now you still remember Cheung Kwok Wing, then I am already satisfied!" For 10 years, his name has not been forgotten due to his passing. As "his own person" who battled shoulder to shoulder with him for years, Chan Suk Fun wants more than for people to remember Gor Gor. This was only a more conservative way of speaking. Gor Gor still wanted everyone to miss him and love him, thus starting last year she already started preparing a gift for Gor Gor. On March 31 and April 1 two different format MISS YOU MUCH memorial concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum, returning on behalf of Gor Gor a gift for never leaving and abandoning him over the years to fans.

 R: Reporter, C: Chan Suk Fun

 R: This time the two different format memorial concerts have already been sold out long ago. Earlier he never revealed which artist would perform, until recently we started to learn about Jacky Cheung Hok Yau, Vivian Chow wai Man, Kelly Chen Wai Man, Anthony Wong Yiu Ming, Karen Mok Man Wai, Joey Yung Cho Yi and other singers. Always rumored was Gor Gor's HAPPY TOGETHER (CHUN GUONG JA SIT) superstar co-star Tony Leung Chiu Wai, right?

 C: Yes, this time I truly have to thank Leung Chiu Wai. He and Leslie were truly good friends, whether Gor Gor was still alive or passed away, Gor Gor would always remain in his heart. This time every guest performer had a strong connection to Gor Gor. Very early on I already personally wrote letters to invite them. Wai Jai not only agreed right away but also only said, "Everything is waiting for your arrangement." During the run down, even if his performance had partial change, Wai Jai's answer was just "I will follow your arrangement!" He never made any special request. He only wanted to do something to remember this good friend. Wai Jai truly was a good friend of Gor Gor.

 R: Wai Jai's performance won't be just singing a song?

 C: I don't want to reveal the performance too soon, hopefully everyone would watch it then. Because if some contents have been revealed, the show would lose its completeness. That night not only several thousand viewers would be able to enjoy the show live, TVB, Radio Hong Kong, Commercial Radio and Metro will broadcast it either live or on the next day. Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, England, the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand will also have simultaneous broadcast at 10PM Hong Kong time. The Mainland will be able to watch the concert on the Jiangsu Satellite channel and iQIYI.COM. Taiwan and Japan will have live broadcast at cinemas. Hopefully any place around the world with Gor Gor fans would have a chance to enjoy it.

 Shu Qi Holds Back Tears When Recording Her Video

 R: Will the April 1 fan club gathering have many Gor Gor's good friend interview videos?

 C: Because truly many friends loved Gor Gor and since this gathering is for Gor Gor's friends to remember him together, over 20 of Gor Gor's good friends recorded videos and talked about their lives with him so even more of Gor Gor's loyal fans and even "post Wing fans" (fans who liked him after his passing) would understand more about Gor Gor. For example they included (Cherie) Chung Chor Hung, Shu Qi, and (Carina) Lau Ka Ling. Shu Qi held back her tears because when she was still a newcomer she and Gor Gor worked together on VIVA EROTICA (SIK CHING NAM NUI). Gor Gor admired her talent very much and even gave her the chance to be his concert guest on the Hong Kong Coliseum stage. He wanted to introduced her to everyone. When Shu Qi told this story she fought back her tears.

 R: Mrs. Chan, you truly have presented many gifts for Gor Gor?

 C: Although 10 years wasn't a long time, it definitely wasn't a short time either. Yet my emotions now still haven't settled, and I believe that I would never forget. I think that this event will be the final public Gor Gor memorial event, it shouldn't be done all the time. Thus this time I tried to please the fans as much as possible, I even hoped that Gor Gor in Heaven would appreciate my intention.

 Conversing with Gor Gor For 10 Hours In A Dream

 R: Mrs. Chan, over the 10 years have you seen Gor Gor in your dreams? Did he say anything to you?

 C: For a period I constantly dreamed of Gor Gor, then for a long time I didn't. The most memorable time was a very long dream. I was taking a long distance flight back to Hong Kong. For the entire 10 hours on the plane I was with Gor Gor, we kept chatting. Now I still remember over 70% of the conversation in the dream with him. Very realistically and the most wonderfully he told in the dream that because of a reason he would not come to find me for a long time. After that I truly never dreamed of him for a long time. The reason that he told me later truly happened, but because it was a secret between me and Gor Gor, I can't reveal what the reason was. Ultimately my own experience was very real.

 Leslie Helps Inspiring Publicizing The Message

 R: Earlier Mrs. Chan you said that you would publicize a message at the concert. Later it was rumored that this message was Gor Gor's final words and speculated as a text message or a conversation in a dream. Actually what does this message represent?

 C: I can't explain it in a few words. I spent a lot of time and still didn't know how to express it and tell others, I can only say that this truly happened to me. It truly was crystal clear. If I can express it I would have publicized it a long time ago. When I was preparing for the concert, I felt that Leslie gave me an inspiration to use this method of expression at the concert. Hopefully that night everyone would be able to understand, I have already done my best to express it.

 Unforgettable Pain, No Interest To Organize Memorial Events Again

 R: If you want to say something to Gor Gor, what would you say to him?

 C: (thought for several seconds as her eyes turned red) I would tell him "Leslie thank you", which already included a lot. He would understand.

 R: You helped Gor Gor and even a group of late friends in the business and truly has given a lot.

 C: I didn't really help much, fate goes this way and it can't be changed.

 Mrs. Chan and fans who loved Leslie would miss him more than 10, 20, or 50 years. This longing truly is unbroken and without an end date!

 PASSION CONCERT, Forefront of Trend

 Gor Gor since his first Leslie Cheung Summer Concert in 1985 to his final PASSION Concert in 2000 performed 8 major concerts over 15 years, more than half were in collaboration with Mrs. Chan. To Mrs. Chan, her favorite was the 1989 Farewell To Music concert. The most memorable was the 2000 Passion Concert; because this concert's content was controversial. Gor Gor appeared with long hair. Some people before listening to what he sang or performed already defined it as "Cheung Kwok Wing in a woman's disguise". The entire concert content became unimportant, the most important became "Cheung Kwok Wing in a woman's disguise".

 Mrs. Chan said, "I truly was very frustrated, how could those criticism be so limited? I am someone who can accept criticism, but it has to be objective and fair. Gor Gor wasn't pretending to be a woman, how could long hair with their personal thinking define the concert? At the time I worked very hard to overturn it. Luckily viewers' eyes were crystal clear. They learned to appreciate it. Luckily it still had fair and objective media that were the voice of justice for the Passion Concert, they even asked fashion designers to analyze Gor Gor's entire concert. It was a transformation from an angel to a demon."

 This concert even 10 years later remained in the forefront of trend and left Mrs. Chan with a connection that could not be erased.

 Unfulfilled Director Dream In Life

 Three days before Cheung Kwok Wing's passing, the reporter spoke with Gor Gor over the phone once. At the time Gor Gor was enjoying afternoon tea with Mrs. Chan. Mrs. Chan handed the phone over to Gor Gor. Gor Gor whose voice at the time was still a little hoarse due to acid reflux happily told me, "I will soon record another record, I am even thinking about directing a movie. Now the condition has improved a lot!" How could the reporter believe that three days later when hearing about the news of Gor Gor's death? The question that was asked repeatedly in the mind was "Why?" Mrs. Chan said, "Because of Gor Gor, I started to understand depression. Actually this illness would not get better just with medication. Although this ending was not something that anyone would want to happen, 10 years ago everyone was very confused about this illness. No one dared to tell their family that they had depression. Now they would not worried about it as a hidden illness, they would actively treat it. Thus Gor Gor did something great for everyone."

 Gor Gor's unfulfilled dream in life was to be a director. Mrs. Chan said, "If he was still alive, he might have already directed many movies. Thus this time I added a director's chair for Gor Gor's figure, and completing a dream that we thought was unfulfilled for him!"

 Strong Woman Struggles To The End For A Good Friend

 The impression that Mrs. Chan gave everyone was a strong woman. The reporter thought that her "strength" was not just in her career, but what she did for friends. Someone else definitely would not be able to do it. Her good friends Cheung Kwok Wing, Fei Jeh (Lydia Shum Din Ha), Roman Tam (Law Man), Uncle Jim (James Wong Jim) all passed away one after another. She was not only heart broken but also had to arrange for her good friends' funerals; when a friend was ailing, she gave even more time to take care of him or her. Watching one friend's passing after another, the reporter asked Mrs. Chan, "Do you have depression?" She answered in less than a second, "Of course not, because from Leslie having this illness I started to understand the cause of this illness. I tried to urge friends to keep an open mind."

 Misunderstood Because of Fei Jeh

 Sometimes she would be misunderstood for what she did for her friends, but as long as a friend asked she would struggle to the end; after Fei Jeh got sick, some friends blamed Mrs. Chan for not letting them see Fei Jeh. Mrs. Chan said, "Honestly, Fei Jeh had many buddies who played, ate and played mahjong with her. They definitely saw Fei Jeh more than I did, but because this group of friends only saw Fei Jeh's happy side, when Fei Jeh got sick she loved her friends too much for them to see her thin, listless and ailing. She only wanted to share with them the "happy nut" in the eyes of her friends. On the other hand Big Amy (late director Chang Cheh's wife) and I became her companions. I remembered at the time I had to work on a concert tour, but every time I returned to Hong Kong, as soon as I turned on my mobile phone I definitely would receive a call from Fei Jeh. She said that she cooked a lot of good food and told me to go to her home to eat." Mrs. Chan began to choke up, "You can imagine how bored she was, she had to call many times before finding me. Later I took all the work to either her home and to the hospital, I kept an eye on her all the time. Sometimes when she woke up and came to the living room to check on me, chatted a little then lay down in peace, because she didn't have to pretend to be spirited in front of many friends. Actually every time after friends visited her, she would be exhausted. I just helped Fei Jeh with letting everyone remember her happiest side and it was enough."
