Two Mainland versions of Pang Ho-Cheung's Cat. III Love in a Puff will be released in June. Neither version will have any scenes deleted. Rather, both Mandarin and Cantonese (for Guangdong Province) versions will be redubbed to eliminate foul language and Hong Kong slang. This means that there will be three versions of the film, Mainland Mandarin, Mainland Cantonese and Hong Kong Cantonese. On a post by the director on his micro-blog: "So excited to tell you, Love in a Puff will be released in June. La la la la. The most exciting thing is, Guangdong Province Cantonese version will be shown, yo yo yo yo. Happy, happy, happy, happy." In the past, foul language was 'beeped' out but this was found to be too distracting for viewers. According to anonymous sources, Pang originally tried to edit the scenes with bad language but the results were unsatisfactory so the redub approach was taken. (Xinhua), (Sina)

Singapore concert: The highlight of the spectacular show was, naturally the much-talked about indoor revolving stage that entered the Guinness World Records for its sheer size - a 10m by 9.44m translucent platform (about the size of two squash courts). Cavorting on a 450 degree revolving manner, the stage took Aaron Kwok back and forth while he sang and danced, as it revolved vertically and horizontally.
