- No, I did not forget about Michelle's birthday (how could I?). I just thought, uh, since Michelle has been active on Instagram, everyone can post directly on her Official Instagram and celebrate the special day with her together.

Wait, I just realized I was wrong. Instagram, along with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc., are blocked in Mainland China... So friends in China, time to "climb the wall"! And everyone is welcome to post on the Guestbook as well especially if you don't use Instagram (like myself).   ;-)

Today is the Nth anniversary of this website, the Michelle Yeoh Web Theatre. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to all our old and new friends, for your visits, encouragement, and support! This site would not last this long without YOU!

Take care everyone! Living in such a special period of time in human history, keep your kindness and faith!

- Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan recently said in an interview with Hollywood Reporter -
  Q: Are there any updates on the Crazy Rich Asians film sequels that you could share?

  A: We have been just moving right along and sort of heavy in that development process in terms of getting everything perfect, getting the script perfect in the hopes that we can be ready to roll once the world opens up and we can all safely not have the social distancing from our filming. I think, just like the first movie, we want to get it right. We feel like it's so important that the sequel really lives up to what the first movie did. None of us wanted to do a rush job on it. So, we really wanted it to find its groove.

- An all-new novel based upon the Star Trek TV series, Star Trek: Discovery: Die Standing, is scheduled to publish on July 14, 2020.
No one in the history of histories has lost more than Philippa Georgiou, ruler of the Terran Empire. Forced to take refuge in the Federation's universe, she bides her time until Section 31, a rogue spy force within Starfleet, offers her a chance to work as their agent. She has no intention of serving under anyone else, of course; her only interest is escape.

But when a young Trill, Emony Dax, discovers a powerful interstellar menace, Georgiou recognizes it as a superweapon that escaped her grasp in her own universe. Escorted by a team sent by an untrusting Federation to watch over her, the emperor journeys to a region forbidden to travelers. But will what she finds there end the threat - or give "Agent Georgiou" the means to create her old empire anew?
