His first stop was to visit the track & field athletes, he saw the ‘racing wheelchair team’, they were focusing on training, but on seeing him they rushed forward to shake his hands, asked for his autograph & requested photo taking. Some indicated they want to wear the clothes autographed by Andy in London. The coach told Andy that this group won 10 golds in 08 BJ Paralympics, Andy was marveled, he hopes this year they can continue with the good work, & give the best performances.

The next stop he made was the stadium for the Blind, it was actually back to the old place for Andy, he recalled,

"4 years ago I had experienced this event, I was hit by a female team mate, never thought it could be so painful, it really gives me a very deep impression. “

This visit, the instructor asked Andy to experience it again with the male & female team. These athletes who have poor vision, rely on the sound of the bells inside the ball to distinguish the direction of the ball, to pitch & to receive. Andy wore a completely opaque goggle, & played with the players.

Due to not enough of strength in pitching the ball, the players were unable to tell the direction of the ball, it resulted in a goal. Teased Andy, "Do you deliberately give me the chance ? “ At one time Andy threw the ball at the staff by the side of the ring, everyone laughed.

The next venue was the swimming stadium, in the swimming team was a familiar face, one that always touches Andy a lot. He had in 04 Paralympics won 4 golds, was nicknamed 'Armless King of Frogs'.

Andy played the role of his ssistant that day, he held the towel for him to bite on, so he could exert the initiating force. Andy wishes him good result in the London games.

At the end of visit, Andy went to basketball hall, track & field hall, to visit the basketball team who are on wheelchairs, & the runners.

Andy tried to sit on the wheelchair to shoot the ball to the ring, no matter how hard he tried, he could not get it in. He lamented it is indeed not an easy task,

"The moment you want to shoot, the wheelchair moves, how can they ever get the ball in, really they put in a lot of effort!”

Andy will also take part in the activities of Paralympic athletes activities in HK.

CHILING LIN & ZHANG JINGCHU BOTH EAGER TO TAKE A LOOK OF LITTLE DRAGON GIRL
ANDY PROTECTS HIS DAUGHTER TIGHTLY

Lin Chiling & Zhang Jing Chu the two well-recognized beauties flew to HK specially yesterday. In sexy outfits, together with Andy, they shot posters for the new movie Fu Chun Mountains. Zhang was in a low-cut floral skirt, her daring showing of the 'career-line' could not steal the lime light from Zhiling, who wore a bare back, super short skirt & a flawless face.

Andy claimed that he was in 007 look, praised that the two beauties other than super sexy, put in their best during filming.

During filming, he was worried that he might accidentally injured them. He added that other than action scenes, there was a dangerous scene when he jumped from Burj Dubai, but the part he personally performed was limited to 5 storey only, a height of less than 50 feet. The scene at the top of tower parachuting down was done by a stuntman.

He admitted, "I have acrophobia, I dare not do it myself, the one that gave me the greatest fright was in Running Out of Time, but I have not tried jumping more than 50 feet."

Was it because of him needing to take care of his daughter that the two beauties were asked to come to HK to shoot the posters, he smiled,

"I don’t know, but ever since I took part in co-jointed film I have posters taken in HK ever since, but still I have to thank them for accomodating."

Chiling & Zhang indicated that they had congratulated Andy on being a father, but they have not seen his daughter yet. Chiling said she really wishes to take a peep of her. Zhang said Andy becomes child-like after becoming a father, probably due to the new addition in family. Though she have not seen the baby, according to boss Peter Lam, the baby is as beautiful as her mother.

Chiling on seeing Zhang with 'career-line' teased that she would protect her with eyes glued to her all the time.

She added the director purposely made the two of them have very contrasting characters, Zhang was reserved in the movie, this time she was most sexy. She herself on the other hand was very wild & unrestrained.

Zhang revealed that Chiling was very sexy in an injured scene when she appeared very transparent. Chiling praised that Andy was very serious during filming, & personally likes to play every scene himself, she was so influenced by him that instead of having only 30% energy left, she still tried to put in all, 100%.

Andy is always low-profiled, he has lips sealed on anything regarding his daughter. Instead of telling media ‘be good, don’t ask’ his answers now are ‘shall tell you in p rivate’. He blames that how come anybody can have a carbon copy of the birth cert, there is imperfection with regulations.

After becoming a father, his mood is exceptionally good, he was guest of honor, together with Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, Ocean Park chairman Allan Zeman & others.

In conjunction with Artic theme, Andy had to battle the heat under a temp of 30m degree by wearing a ski suit, stll keeping his smiles throughout.

Wearing ski suit under a high heat, Andy admitted, “It is extremely hot, but the temp in the stadium is very cold, water temp is only 8 degree.” Smiling, he added, “I had filmed commercial & served penguins before, but it is the first time I see king penguins."

On Allan kept mentioning his daughter, he teased, “I said behind his back, 'Baby stop it', haha (Do you mind?) OK lah, if others & media want to bring it up it is ok, only I myself will not bring it up."

When asked if his capability in child care allows him to bring his daughter to Ocean Park, his new answer to the media is, "Shall talk to you in p rivate."

Now when he is out at work, will he keep thinking of his daughter? He said, “There is no difference from before, (Is work load less for you nowadays?) The work is no less."

On the news report that he spent 200 million on a luxurious house, he indicated, “It is not convenient to talk on family matter here, let news be it, I am responsible in reading it, I will not response to whether it is true or false.”

A report published his daughter birth cert, his daughter is now renamed as Liu Xiang Hui, English name is Hanna, admitted Andy,

"Lately then I get to know anybody can get a copy of another person’s birth certificate, as long as they have the name of his father & mother, birth place & date, pay a fee of HK$140, I am eager to know who did this. (Are you unhappy?) NO, It is the regulations. (Would you again change name for your daughter?) I am not answering. I just feel there is problem with regulations.” He was with the CE, did he tried to bring this up? Answered, “He has a lot of things to think about, let him do his own thing, this sort of thing citizens should settle it themselves. There is no hurry."

Andy had no chance to chat with CE, they greeted one another, he disclosed that he met him once on the plane 30 years ago, on netizens wishing Andy be a CE, he smiled, “I do not have the capability or interest!” On his expectations with CE, he said CE has just started work, has to see what comes out in future.
