Andy continues: "I feel that Hong Kong isn't that bad, we've a hit movie in Hollywood, that's Infernal Affairs which is a first!"

When I invest in one movie, it would cost $3-4 million, that's within my ability which is a different thinking of mine, if it doesn't lose money, my highest record is owning 9 cars, when I'm free I'll let magazine reporters to take photographs of them. what a show off! I would spend my money without thinking now, this small project is like a school doing small production, it's like nurturing, one may not be a grand master but it need to be done."
