Last year Gordon Liu (Lau Ka Fai) suffered a stroke and became hemiplegic, then his second wife and children reportedly were after his wealth. Current resting in a nursing home, Lau Ka Fai is already slowly recovering. Every week he receives physical therapy, acupuncture and massage therapy. He has recovered 40% of his mobility. Although the monthly medical expense is over 30,000, his manager Eva said that Brother Ka Fai is paying all the expenses himself and stressed that he has no financial problem at all!
Bravely standing up again Lau Ka Fai after the stroke has been working hard on his therapy. Although he declined to see his wife and children, he was not lonely because he had many friends. This Mid Autumn Festival, many on and off screen co-workers and friends visited Brother Ka Fai like Ti Lung, Chan Koon Tai, Fan Yik Man, Wai Ka Hung and Lam Wai at the nursing home. Even though Eric Tsang Chi Wai and Vivian Lai Shui Yan did not appear, they sent moon cake for Brother Ka Fai to celebrate with. Although Brother Ka Fai was still slim, he was in great spirit.
Lau Ka Fai's manager Eva and Fan Yik Man often visited him as well. For the Mid Autumn Festival Fan Yik Man even gave Brother Fa Fai lai see for good luck. When Brother Ka Fai's elders Chow Keung and Chan Koon Tai spoke about kung fu, Brother Ka Fai was especially excited. Brother Tai said to Ka Fai, "When you get better, fight strong!" Then everyone made a kung fu pose.
According to Eva, a foreign friend Joe originally wanted to study with Brother Ka Fai. Although Brother Ka Fai suffered a stroke and Joe could not become his disciple, he still deliberately came to Hong Kong to visit Brother Ka Fai. Another friend Ti Lung even brought chicken essence and snacks when he visited. He even grabbed Brother Ka Fai's hand to encourage him to keep working hard and ignore how others look at him.
In addition, Wai Ka Hung, John Chiang Dai wai and Brother Ka Fai once worked together on the Radio and Television Hong Kong current affair comedy ROOMS TO LET. Wai Ka Hung and the on and off screen talent knew Brother Ka Fai liked shrimp dumpling so they took him for Dim Sum. Brother John in LET played Brother Ka Fai's brother. Although he did not have time for Dim Sum he still called. Lam Wai and the FSD production team brought soup and food to spend the holiday with Brother Ka Fai.
Eva revealed that TVB had many co-workers who called Brother Ka Fai. Actually Brother Ka Fai's progress has been good and his eyes were sharp. A friend's zipper was unzip and he saw it right away. Now Brother Ka Fai every week had physical therapy, acupuncture and massage therapy. He has already recovered 40% of his movement. Every month the expense was over 30,000, which Brother Ka Fai paid on his own. She stressed that Brother Ka Fai's finance has no problem at all.
