Wu Fung almost walked into a hole on stage, Leon Lai embraces reassuring him
Wu Fung celebrated his 80th birthday by opening a show at Hong Kong Coliseum. Several of his god sons and daughters including Sandy Lam, George Lam, Nick Cheung and many more were guest performers. Leon Lai made a special appearance despite being ill.
Wu Fung is quite popular as it was a full house last night. His god sons and daughters, as well as his three grand daughters all went on stage to perform. Among them, Film King Nick Cheung was the funniest as he pretended to be his god father. Wu Fung exposed both of their wives are called "Wing Ho" (referring to Esther Kwan).
Then the rising platform was lowered to allow Sandy Lam to get on stage, but Wu Fung didn't know there was a hole in the middle of the stage. He was walking and talking, and almost fell into the hole. Luckily, the audience all shouted for him to be careful, and it was like Wu Fung just woke up from his dreams, he stopped and avoided the fall. Just a step away and Wu Fung could have fell down below the stage. Coincidentally, George Lam (Ah Lam) had a similar incident happened to him before, so when Ah Lam came on stage, he joked: "You were almost like me just now." Wu Fung laughed: "I don't dare to learn from you... I can't do it. Luckily the audience were calling out for me." Ah Lam laughed: "How come the audience at that time didn't shout out for me? Next time when I hold a concert, I will ask you to help me watch out for those holes."
When Leon got on stage, he went to give his god father a hug to reassure him. However, Wu Fung was not worried at all, but in fact was more worried about his health. Leon insisted to make a guest appearance despite being ill, which touched Wu Fung's heart.
Also, Wu Fung and Lydia Shum, who appeared on the TV screen 'duet' Keep On Smiling. This was Wu Fung's dream 10 years ago on his 70th birthday.
