Even during the Lunar New Year, Andy Lau do not stop working as he's busying jetting around for his concerts, shooting of Future Cops, promotion of Looking For A Star, shooting of commercials.... currently he become the top choice creative artiste of Cow Parade Taipei 2009, the ox that he created will be unveiled for the first time on 24 December's Cow Parade Taipei 2009.

2009 is the year of the Ox, it will also be the 10th anniversary of the world's largest, famous and oldest international public arts creation activity Cow Parade. Andy whom was nicknamed an ox in Hong Kong is immediately invited by the organizer of Cow Parade Taipei 2009 to become the top choice creative artiste. Andy's ox will be displayed during the parade.

The organizer air freight the ox to Hong Kong in November, be it busy from day till night, Andy would also spend time creating this artistic ox. Andy says: "The annual Cow Parade had reached its 10th year, 2009 will be the year of the ox, I'm very lucky to be invited to be in this designing activity, the organizer gave me a large ox as design platform for me to create an artistic ox, maybe the organizer had witness the creation of my two sons, this is the show of my liking of designing ox. Thus I cannot take this easy, no matter how busy am I, I'll still make an effort to complete it, although it's a bit of rush, well it just meet the theme of the "rushing cow"."

Andy's creation is the combination of 40,000 rounded shape, using 3 dimensional to bring closeness, standing at different side of the ox, you can see Andox and Blackie standing at different direction. The point to point must be paste carefully in order for it to look nice, as there is only one ox, it would not make it in time if there's any failure, thus I can only open my eyes big and wide during creation.

When talked about there is a white mist when spraying the white paint and protection layer, Andy said: "The toughest and most funny part is the spray paint time as fear of the smell will affect those employees, when spraying the white paint and protection layer, there is a white mist, everywhere is white, only a mask mark on my face, lying down facing the ox stomach and stick on the nipples feel strange. After sticking the round shaped stickers, what I can see if black dots in my eyes."

When talked about the idea of his designed ox, Andy said: "I have an affinity with ox, my Chinese zodiac is ox, my first soft toy designs are also 2 ox: Andox and Blackie, I called these 2 creations of mine, my sons. I'm glad that I'm able to take part in this designing activity of Cow Parade Taipei 2009, it gives me another platform to design ox, I treat myself as the big ox, I've limited ideas, drew my 2 sons on the body of the ox, they're rushing towards Taipei, thus meet the theme of the festival, this is also a charity, this is some bits that we can do as a family."

With regards to this ox creation, Andy is excited as in recent years he fall in love with art painting. Andy once mentioned that he would like to learn painting, he would read some books on painting when he's free. No matter what type, he would like to learn, also hope to arrange time to learn from a master.

Towards the end of the year, Andy said: "Hope everything will be better, the financial tsunami be over soon and everything back to normal."

As Christmas is round the corner, the organizer arrange a musical car parade on 24 December from 6:30 - 9:30 pm, Andy's designed ox will also be paraded.
