Andy Lau attended the PHAB Walk for Integration x Sports Day charity event in Hong Kong.
The singer-actor, who hurt his waist in his infamous horse-riding accident in 2017, says seeing the beneficiaries made him think about his own period of recuperation.
"Sometimes you think you are stronger than others, but after hearing about their experiences, you learn that they are much stronger than you!" he shared. "I don't wish for anyone to go through what I did, and please understand that encouragement is very important [for recovery]."
Despite going through hardships in the past, Andy said that he will continue having an optimistic attitude. "Life is like that! Bad things are bound to happen sometimes. Moving forward, all I can do is to be more careful," he said.
When asked how he spent the Lunar New Year holidays, Andy shared that he celebrated it with his family at home, and his daughter received many red packets. However, he does not know how much she got as they have yet to open them.
Earlier this year, Andy was forced to cancel several concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum due to a throat infection. However, he revealed that he has already submitted an application to perform there again. "If the application is successful, we will have replacement shows, but if not, I will try again in March or April."

An hour after she made her post, Ming Fu made a statement through his company as well, saying, “Sorry for disturbing everyone! As for this matter’s ending, I feel extremely sorry and regretful. During this marriage, I was unable to give Aisa happiness, (and) I blame myself (for that).. As for what the other party has said, I fully respect it, sorry for letting everyone worry.”

Louis Koo, Gordon Lam, Angelababy, and more attended the 31st anniversary party of the Hong Kong Society of Cinematographers on February 12, where Louis and Angelababy were conferred the "most attractive actor" and "most attractive actress" awards.
When asked if he feels attractive every time he looks into a mirror, Louis joked, "Am I less attractive if I don't look into a mirror?" He then added that attractiveness isn't just about one's outward appearance, but also their heart and spirit.
The actor then shared his thoughts on photography, saying that while many people like to take selfies on their phones and edit them until they don't look like themselves, he is not in the habit of doing so. "I bought a camera a long time ago," he said. "I think photography is a good way to make someone slow down and appreciate their surroundings a bit more."
Angelababy added, "Ever since I became a mother, I've been taking a lot of photos every day. I'm interested in becoming a photographer myself." However, she has not thought about trying her hand at directing. "I want to be a good actress first."
