Andy who is the son-in-law of Malaysia was in Malaysia for the promo of New Shaolin. At the interview he admitted to this status, but on home affairs he still asked reporters not to ask.
At the end he was forced to say that since CNY last year he had started giving out double hongbaos, all because he is very traditional, after he was married he has to give red packets & in pairs.
Andy had said before that he wanted to have children that was why he got married, in the movie he was a strict father, not sure how he will be in real life? He answered,
"Not sure, when it is time I will tell you, I trust I am a strict father, but I have a friend who was like that, after he has a daughter he was all changed. "
The movie touches on spirit of Shaolin a lot, one of which is to live carefreely, he said man should know how to put things down & be relax, so has he put anything he cannot down?
He said, "There are too many things, if I can put them down I will be a monk now!" He made everyone laughed.

In addition, his movie What Women Want will be screened during Valentine's Day, in it, he showcased his dance moves, he kept dancing with beautiful ladies, one of them was a 50 over auntie, said,
"I have no problem with social dance, the first time I have to change so many partners in dancing , esp my part-time home maker auntie, she could not dance at first, after dancing she got more & more interested. "
Ge You went to visit him at shooting location, he commented that movies by any other persons he has no problem, but when he meets one acted by Andy & Gongli it makes him worry!
ANDY WAS ONCE PERMANENT RESIDENT OF SINGAPORE
Andy was asked on his Singapore residency issue, he revealed that he had actually succeeded in becoming the permanent resident of Singapore! But due to change of secretary, the secretary did not follow up with the matter, she forgot to renewed the passport, he thus lost his sttus!
Heavenly King Andy came to SG for the promo of New Shaolin with director Benny Chan, other than talking on the movie, he talked cheerfully on his private life.
Andy looked especially slim, his sharp chin was like a razor blade, his eyes were brilliant, the atmosphere was intense, Andy was very friendly, but he was very insistent in protecting his marriage.
Recently there was a report saying that he was eyeing at Sentosa Cove, which is a private property priced at S$ tens of millions, but due to the fact that he could not erect a tall fence to protect the privacy of his wife, the deal was called off.
When Andy was asked if he will buy property in SG, he said he has none at this moment, many years ago he bought one,.....It was because he was given permanent residency in SG!
The reporter asked when it happened, he replied,
"That was many years ago, I was filing Shocking 12 Hours in SG, I was already a PR then, I had a SG passport, but because I was too busy with work… superstar you know......." He shook his head saying in a self-ridicule tone.
On the actors, Benny Chan revealed that Andy is a A-list actor, once the camera is on he will be serious with his work, his attitude was 'No nonsense should get near him'!
Nicholas Tse likes to be beaten, if the person did not beat him hard he will be unhappy.
Jackie Chan is the 'prescription pill'. once he appeared he would create jokes, Fan Bing Bing can endure hardship, she did not even grumble having her head dipped in cold water in winter.
The reporter asked if wives of Andy & Nicholas paid visited them at shooting location, Benny was caught unprepared, said
"I cannot remember..... "
He then added that even if they did they wouldl not be at the location.
It was reported that Andy will give his 30 years to his wife from now & that he will not film intimate scenes in movies, are these all true?
Answered Andy, "No, I wont avoid.. (Don’t you have to report to yoru wife that you film intimate scenes?) I don’t need to, but I do not wish to talk this, it is my family matter…"
He refused to talk on his won family but on the screen daughter, he used his body to protect her!
There was a scene filmed during the night, the slope was covered with stones, it should actually be a boy to play the double, as boys with some cuts are alright, "At that time I had to make myself in the shape of a cage & protect her from getting cuts. "
Andy was in Plaza Singapura in Orchard Road for the promo of New Shaolin, more than2000 fans were drawn to the site. The screams were incessant, his fans varies greatly in age, including some male fans!
Andy was late & arrived at 7:45 pm, he was delighted to see so many people! On filming he said after collaborating with Jackie, he then knew not only Jackie can fight, he can also act well!
It was a rare for Andy to meet fans in public in SG, 2 nights ago there was a fan Miss Wong, who was interviewed by the reporter.
She was excited to see her idol Andy, she disclosed that the 2 most important men in her house, her husband & her father were all born on the same day as Andy, i.e Sept 27! When she was dating her husband, because of his birthday same as Andy she gave her extra marks!
Other than these two, her aunt is also born on the same day.
"Also, my brother looks like Andy, his nose is sharp, his name is also Andy, he likes Andy a lot too, I was influence by him & likes Andy when I was young.."
She added because of Andy she develops interest in photography, indeed Andy has given her a lot of inspiration!
ANDY DOES NOT MIND BEING CALLED HEAVENLY LIAR
Andy wasa sked if he mind being called a 'liar' after his marriage was exposed, he answered, "I Dont mind." Indeed gentleman in his heavenly way.
Malaysia's son-in-law went back to Malaysia to meet fans, his words, 'I feel like coming home!' unexpectedly sent fans screaming. At the game section, he demonstrated 7-star fist fight, as he played he realized he was restrained by the harem pants, he was not able to open up his legs, he regretted, "I did not know have to play gongfu today!"
Yesterday at 8pm Andy was at Pavillion basement hall in KL for the promotion of the movie. About a hundred over AWC fans in orange uniform started waiting since 6 pm, they were orderly & waited patiently. Some sat at the steps, the palce was packed to the full but no chaos was noted. Andy appeared for about 15 minutes. 2 boys were invited to showcase martial arts.
Andy who is 50 spent 3 months to practice martial art, when he was praised for being agile, he replied unabashedly, "I am ok, because I am still young!" When the fans wooed him in disbelief, he asked then " Why are you all so surprised?"
6 lucky fans went up to play games with him, he caringly asked them to put their bags aside, teased, "Let me take care of them!"
Some fans took the opportunity to shake hands with him, he did not reject them, he openly was biased with the two who came dressed in his fan club uniform, he told the emcee, "These two are my people!"
He demonstrated 7-star fist & wanted them to follow, at the end a female fan self created a 8-star fist fight, one female fan flowery fist & legs was teased by him, " You are just like dancing! "
At photo taking he put his head close to his fan club girl, those below the stage shrieked.
The movie to be out on 27 officially in Malaysai, but on the 19th 13 premieres were shown. At 8:45 pm Andy moved to 6th floor GSC cinema, he waved to fans at the premiere,
The host asked the fans if Andy was handsome, Andy in turn replied, "Other than handsome I can also act."
Stayed for only 5 minutes, he indicated, "Acting can acquire, fighting can practice, but looking handsome cannot be learnt, so I cannot give it away." Is he saying he admits that he is handsome, & he is not able to forgo his idol status?
It seems that Andy came back to KL from Shanghai on Tuesday, his wife was not on the same flight as him. He had wanted to go back to his wife's house when he arrived at 9pm but the flight was delayed & he reached KL only at 10:40pm, he left the customs at midnight, he had to forget going home but to go back hotel.
It was said after the premiere on Wednesday night, Benny Chan & the staff went for supper, but Andy did not follow, he was most probably at his wife's house, before he set off the next day to Singapore!

YEARS OF LOVE
2 nights ago Andy had the last of his Unforgettable Concert, he was forced by Carina to admit & thanked his wife, even then he was still reluctant & refused to say a word. Carol Chu has almost become his lethal spot. Whenever someone brought up his Mrs, he as usual avoided talking, the two are seldom seen going out together. But last month, someone saw them together in the nanny car going to Shau Kei Wan praying at a termple.
Mrs Lau was seen in light make up, & dressed in light color clothes, she was accompanied by Andy & entered the temple swiftly. In actual fact, in Sept last year, she was being photographed at the temple praying for child & return blessings.
Even after his marriage was exposed in 08, he still keeps mum about her, they have been together so many years, even if Andy were to confirm her status, the situation will be the same. In his 20 concerts he was teased several times by his guests, he still avoided talking. He enters his 50 year old this year, having a wife & children is only a norm, most of his fans have accepted he is married, Andy should thus be open & do not take Carol as a taboo.
ANDY WILL MAKE 47 MILLION
Andy's 20 concerts came to an end 2 nights ago, this cross-year concert helps to bring in 22 million for Andy. As he has signed with East Asia Entertainment to share out the production fee, East Asia pays 3 million production fee to him every concert , after all the expenses, accordingly for every concert, Andy has a fee of about 1.2 million.

Thus, a total of 47 million in the upper half of 2011.
For movies, in March his company will pay cost of a movie by Ann Hui, with him as lead. In May he is probably acting in Daniel Lee 's film, Royal Banquet, with his current fee of 18 million per movie, he wll collect 36 million, he will probably take a very low fee, or even not taking but divide the profit, thus it is not easy to estimate, a rough estimate. He will collect close to total of 83 million.

I was almost moved to tears! First of all I want to tell you I have talked to your friend, I want to remake The Condor Heroes, we have agreed, see if you are interested! My role is simple, I just want to be that condor, a fat one, I have only one word as my line, ¡. He then flap his wings & pouted his mouth, his comical act was not only that, he then gave a show of hand despondently, "Condor¡ please bring me to see Little Dragon Girl! "
Andy laughed till he dropped to the floor.
Eric Tsang described Andy as another crazy fellow, he came self prepared dressed in pyjama & a pair of slippers, so matching with Andy.
He smiled, "To counter Andys 6 pack, I have some practices, I am too satisfied to be his concert guest, I have waited 17 shows, I want to call him everyday but I cannot, I want to tell him I can sing Star but he said it has been taken up, so I have to change to my pyjama & wait for him night! Actually I have prepared a lot of things, but when I know Eason is in front of me I concede defeat!"
Eric went on to praised Andy, said that when Andy first started singing people thought he was singing Cantonese opera, "Now how? He is even dancing, Many people told me I must go to see his concert, they say he can dance even better than Aaron Kwok!"
Andy quick to retort, "There. There.. everyone remember these words, they are not said by me, it was what he feels! "
Eric added, "You have everything in this entertainment circle, now you even have a wife!" The audience gave a roar, Andy quickly called Eric to stop, they then sang Stupid Child with the 6 small monks.
Eric Tsang was Andy's concert guest, other than praising that Andy is an example of hardworking person, he is a humble person even in winning,
Said Eric," I have truly seen how Andy came to this day, from the very beginning when he went to my house to cut my hair, to shooting the movie The Five Lucky Stars, I can see that hsi popularity soars by day! After that we collaborated in another movie Five Tigers when I was the director, Andy had not slept for a few days, I told him to rest at the car park, but I saw the light of the car was on, I went over to see, e was writing something, he said he wanted to change the lyrics of a song, if a person is so hardworking, how can he be unsuccessful? I have been in the movie industry for so long, I am yet to see another rperson more hardworking than him, most importantly he is not arrogant with his success!"
In celebration of his 30 years in showbiz, Andy holds 20 Unforgettable Concert @ the HK Coliseum.

The barren suit comes in 3 sets, namely blue, yellow & red. In actual fact, these suits after being made in Tokyo were sent to Kyoto which is famous for fabric dying for addition of color, they were then sent to HK for Andy to try out. To & fro it took 3 days to send, Tokyo & HK. Yohji's design is always stresses on loose fitting, but to suit Andy better, they were made smaller, indeed the classical 'Andy's Cut'.
At curtain opening, Andy has a hot dance, coupled with fire shooting & fireworks, the feel is indeed intense, this is in addition of lots of laser works, all these are designed by the Japanese. Every night 30 over fireworks were displayed, at 4 corners of the stage are 9 different spots, to create the best effect, 200 over holes were drilled on the stage. When the flame comes out, Andy in the center has to endure the high temp of 5o degree, no wonder he has to rehearse once everyday. The organizer bought insurance of 30 million, just in case.
Trust after watching the concert, the audience will leave with a most unforgettable scene of Andy appearing with the character of Hua Dee, he holds a helmet, his motorcycle is full of Swarovski crystals, this immediately brings memory back to his movie , he looks suave with the outfit, tens of thousands screamed in frenzy.

As for the crystals on the motorbike there are a total of 50,000 pieces, no wonder it is glittery.
At the concert there is a air-balloon figurine of Andy, the giant figurine stands 20 feet tall, the cost of production of this is $500,000. The shape is made to measure of Andy real person, it was made in Japan, no wonder it looks so vivid. The lower portion of the figurine has added gas, the manufacturer had ever made one for footballer Zinedine Zidane

In addition there are 3 girls dressed as boys, they impersonate Andy in his younger days, & the scene was taken under the water.
