Simon Yam Tat-Wah invited long-time friend Idy Chan Yuk-Lin to the 12th annual HK Golden Bauhinia Awards [GBA] ceremony last night [Sep 1], which was held at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Simon sincerely wishes that Idy would officially consider returning to acting & hopes to collaborate again with Idy in a modern version of ROCH [love story] movie. It’s known that Simon & Idy did work together years ago in a movie called 麻雀仔》 [I’m looking for the English title and this is totally new information to me] directed by Alfred Cheung 張堅庭. Simon also introduced Idy to the rising young director Edmond Pang Ho-cheung [directed Simon’s latest film “Exodus“].

Simon & Idy were also the presenters for Best Actress, which the result confused Idy that she passed to Simon to clarify. Gong Li won the best actress award for her role in “Curse of the Golden Flowers” though she had to share the award with Charlene Choi for “Simply Actor” while Lau Ching Wan won best actor [also which Simon is nominated] for his role in “My Name Is Fame”. The best picture award was shared between “Exiled”, “A Battle of Wits” and “After This Our Exile”. See the rest of other awards results here.

[Probably more accurate translation to come by Kit. Lin Mui looks good next to this Wah Jai too, don’t you agree?]

Red Carpet Arrival Video [8:43-minute clip: Simon & Idy posed together with husband & wife pair Lau Ching Wan & Amy Kwok at around 6:39ish on the red carpet, then again between 7:16 to 7:54]. And a shorter Video or via google video

Another video highlighted key people & events of the night @ QQ video [It’s SO neat to see Simon suggested where he & Idy signed their names on the GBA’s souvenir board]

[The friendship between Simon & Idy is new & wasn’t known to many of the fans, so check out this old photo of them. Very cute!]
