Chik Mei Chun recently appeared on a cable program and discussed her artist training class days. She also appreciated running into her benefactor Ng Yu who approached her about a variety program; Ah Chik after graduation very quickly had a chance to play the female lead, but she remembered once when she was an "extra".
Ah Chik recalled, "Back then for THE SHELL GAME (CHIN WONG JI WONG), in one scene I played Fat Gor (Chow Yun Fat)'s secretary and had no line. That day the notice was for 9AM. I went to the dressing room on time for make up and hair, then I sat and waited there until 3AM!" At the time she was still new, of course she did not dare to make any noise. Even when she ate she did not dare to take too long as she was afraid that they could not find her. Finally even the lady at the dressing room could not help but ask the drama team for her, only then did they discover that she waited for an entire day. Soon she finally took her mark. Ah Chik also praised Fat Gor for being quite a gentleman, an elder who took great care of his junior colleague.
Ah Chik even revealed that she lived in the same neighborhood as Stephen Chow Sing Chi and Tony Leung Chiu Wai, their enrollment in the artist training class was also related to her. Ah Chik said, "I was the first one to apply. They saw how happy I was with it and I asked them to apply as well." She said that Sing Yeh has liked kung fu since he was little and had quite a sense of humor. At first when the artist training class's instructor Lau Fong Kong was hesitating about accepting Sing Yeh, Ah Chik spoke on his behalf and pointed out all of Sing Yeh's positive points to him. Finally the instructor accepted him. Later when Sing Yeh found out he thanked her. However she felt that his success today was completely due to his own abilities.
