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!]

    Ooops…wrong grammar. I originally wanted to say “You” but changed to ” Your blog” and I forgot to change “have” to “has”. Bad grammar is my pet peeve. So, it bugs me especially when the wrong grammar is on my part 😛

    Behind every popular blog is a reader. Of course, I made it up.

    There’s no bigger size of the group photos for now. If I can find any, I definitely will link to the thumbnails. Maybe you should try to watch the video for better view.

    Simon is funny! He wants to act as Yeung Gor with Idy in a modern version.

    Is it just me or Idy seems to be very irritated being associated with SLL?

    Yes, I also can see that Idy gets uncomfortable when being associated with Siu Lung Lui. But of course, she can’t control what people say or think about her. Ironically, she said her best performance is acting the role of SLL.

    Simon is also very kind that he really wants to re-introduce Idy to HK filming industry & that Idy is also the Best Leading Actress in his heart. I do really hope to see Simon & Idy together on-screen.

    wow, she looks absolutely gorgeous dressing up with make-up & very nice & elegant dress.

    i never knew that she’s good friend with Simon. it’s nice of him to praise her like that ^__^

    i’ve seen The Curse of the Golden Flower & Gong Li totally deserves her best actress award. wonderful job!

    Erin your translation is all correct and in details, much better than mine hehe.

    It’s just so good to see Idy being this active in public now. She looks really great there. Also the dress is beautiful.

    hmm..I don’t know Idy is good friend with Simon Yim either and that Simon wants to introduce Idy to other directer. He’s a real good friend rite? Maybe we could watch Idy in the big screen before she film any TVB series haha.

    It’d be so MAJOR if we get to see Idy on the big screen before her work in the small screen. Simon would probably help Idy networking with directors. Maybe he’s really helping Pang Ho-Cheung to find a leading lady for Pang’s next film just like he said.

    Thanks for your praising on my translation, Kit.
