- Today is the Nth anniversary (yeah... I stopped counting years) of this website, the Michelle Yeoh Web Theatre. First, I would like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to all of you, old and new friends, for your years and years and years and years... of visits, encouragement, and support!

Tomorrow will be the big day of our special lady. Let's bring our annual birthday special --

Our Birthday Greetings to Michelle Yeoh, August 6, 2016


(birthday image by Bin of Sichuan, China. click to enlarge)

Messages sent by fans from over 27 countries/regions: Algeria, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Madagascar, Malaysia, Netherlands, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, UK, USA, and Viet Nam.

All birthday messages have been forwarded to the birthday girl ;-)

And here is our birthday poll result: (question: Would you prefer to see Michelle's new films in cinema or on Netflix?)
    57 (28%) - in cinema
    14 (7%) - on Netflix
    93 (45%) - I don't mind cinema or Netflix as long as I can see Michelle's new films
    41 (20%) - Netflix is not available in where I live
(Note that many fans in Mainland China selected "I don't mind cinema or Netflix...". In fact Netflix is not available there, although most of them found online sources anyway)

Thank you again everyone!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHELLE!!   Thank you for another year of entertainment and inspiration. Hope our messages will brighten your day even more!
