There will never be another incredible and gorgeous human being like her from Malaysia or the world . Perhaps the world’s most glamourous and Kung-fu star of all times . The world has seen the demise of the once famous action movie hero , Bruce Lee in the 70’s and she is the female equivalent of him . Michelle Yeoh is one of the most popular Asian female action stars in history and Asia’s highest paid actress.

She is even more illustrious and highly succesful than him for she is not only intelligent but very beautiful and sexy too. She has made a string of ‘ hit ‘ movies ( http://michelleyeoh.info/Movie/index.html )

She shot into international fame when she played a character called Wai Lin, a Chinese secret agent who helped Pierce Brosnan’s 007 stop an evil newspaper mogul from taking over the world in the filem , ‘Tomorrow never Dies.’ It was not easy to get selected to act opposite Mr. Bond.

It was a defining moment in her career which propelled her into international stardom. She was young, sexy , talented and very capable …WOW !

Another great hit movie was with the famous director Ang Lee, she plays Yu Shu Lien, the action heroine in the Oscar-winning, Crouching Tiger and Hidden Dragon with Chow Yuen Fatt ; getting worldwide acclaim and numerous and prestiges awards.

She was born M/s. Yeoh Chu Kheng on August 6, 1962 in Ipoh ,Perak Malaysia . She is 5Ft 4in ( 165 cm) and weighs 106lbs (48 kg). Her parents are both a lawyer and sportswoman and send her to boarding school in England at the age of 15, after which she entered London’s Royal Academy of Dance, studying ballet.

It was at the age of 21 when Dato Michelle Yeoh became the winner of the Miss Malaysia beauty pageant in 1983. Her mother submitted her entry without consulting her. She was also Malaysia’s representative at the 1983 Miss World pageant in London. Though she did not win the Miss World crown , it launched her successful career in the movie world .

She caught the eye of Hong Kong businessman and film tycoon Dickson Poon, who cast her in a TV commercial with Jackie Chan and later got married to Dickson in a short life marriage. He was a billionaire and there was no incentive to work for a living but her restless spirits and her interest in acting and the Chauvanistic Chinese complex lead them to a break up after three and a half years.

She was not meant to be an ordinary housewife . Such is her immense talents , that nothing , not even a marriage could keep her away from making and producing great films which we all enjoy.

On April 19 , 2001, Michelle Yeoh was awarded the Darjah Datuk Paduka Mahkota Perak (DPMP), which carries the title Dato’ by Sultan Azlan Shah, the Sultan of Perak, her home state, in recognition of the fame she brought to the state.

Dato is an honorary Malaysian title somewhat like a British knighthood, and it lies below the ranks of Dato’ Seri, Tan Sri and Tun. On 23th April 2007 , she was awarded the Knight of the Legion of Honour of France , a top civilian honour by President Jacques Chirac.

Songthaews : This is a vehicle with a hard canopy top and one bench seat either side. In most cases the vehicle moves on pre-settled routes, but for good price, they would take one anywhere in Pattaya.
