Those were two good articles about Michelle Yeoh. Just about every time I meet someone from Malaysia, I'll say, "that's where Michelle Yeoh is from" and they'll smile and agree. :)

I've not watched her in "Tai Chi Master/ Twin Warriors" yet.

V. - I want a Li Bingbing action figure! ;D
That poster is pretty cool looking isn't it?

Walter - I haven't seen Tai Chi Master either. It sounds pretty good, looking at the reviews on HKMDB. Too bad that the US DVD is dubbed. :(
