                                         Yam Chides Bush 

                           Simon Yam, Bernice Liu and Vanessa Yeung

                              March 19th:   Simon commented on the war with Iraq at a recent promotion for Crest

                              Whitestrips. Joked Yam, "Bush must have forgotten to brush his teeth, so he can't

                               communicate with others. He should brush more so everyone can happily sit down 

                             and chat. I don't know anything about politics, but don't fight any war. World peace

                                        is the best. I will leave it to history to see who is the criminal of war."

                                                                       Happy New Year!!

                                     Belinda Hamnett and Simon Yam Tat-Wah

                                       January 1st 2003:   Simon took his niece to the circus for New Years Day. He bought her

                             a lollipop. Seriously though- that's actress Belinda Hamnett with Simon at the grand 

                                 opening of a shopping center in Mainland China, attending as celebrity guests.

                                With TOMB RAIDER 2 filming in Hong Kong, Simon has been showing the cast and 

                                crew around his home turf. However, he will not be filming any scenes this week.

                                 Said Yam: (via Sanney) "I don't have any scenes in Hong Kong. In the middle of 

                              January, I will be flying to England to work on the film. I'll be there over the Lunar 

                                  New Year holiday. When we were in Thailand, people from the crew were kind 

                                   enough to take me out and show me around. Now that they are coming here, 

                                                   I'm going to take the opportunity to return the favor."
