Lye Gears Up for the Corporate World! --
James found a new job with Citibank!!! He will be starting work on 3rd April
as a Bank Product Manager. Cool huh? So now, we all know what'll be up next
for him....=) The news is in the Life! section of The Straits Times today,
and, as usual, for those who do not have access to the news, I have scanned in
the article and included it here.
here for the article]
Days -- This week's issue of 8 Days also featured James and Diana at
the online chat session at Plaza Singapura.
hits -- We've had 3000 hits on this site, ever since 4 November 1999!!!
Isn't that incredible? Its been like only close to 4 months since the counter
was added and we're having like 50 to a hundred hits per day, esp after 2000AD
is released. Also, we've been having more and more fans from outside Singapore
coming in here! Keep it up guys!
chat with James Lye -- Last Sunday, 13th Feb 2000, James Lye was at
Plaza Singapura for an online chat session organised by StarEastnet.com,
supposedly for Valentine's Day. He was with Diana Ser, and there was also a Q
& A session whereby they would answer questions from the people there. Sad
to say, I learnt about it only 2 hours after the event itself (?!?!), thus it
was too late for me to go. (This is also the reason why there was no mention
of it at my site) Sorry to let you guys down!
Check out StarEastnet.com for details of the chat and also
watch a video of the event!
Members -- Hey! Thanks for all your support! I am proud to announce
that the number of JLOFC club members have been steadily rising each day, with
an increasing number of fans from Hong Kong. The total number of members is
now standing at 40, and increasing by the day. Keep it up! Also, it's good to
know that James is becoming more and more popular regionally, even though he
has quit acting. I think he can now be one of the "Best In Asia",
probably even beat that "Don't-play-play" guy, Gurmit Singh...=)

of James' family, including his auntie, cousin etc...Also, we got a glimpse of
what he looked like when he was 18 yrs old! He sure looked like a geek then...haha.
There were also many interesting facts about him that was revealed in the
show. For one, according to James' cousin, he can't really drink...ohh...now
we know! Hear his aunt relate about how James was such a naughty boy when he
was young, chasing everybody around with a bottle of cockroaches. eeks...Its
such a pity I cannot input video clips into my computer at the moment, so I

soon. So, in the meantime...Hang in there!

The news is out, and I
guess its pretty finalized. Its beginning to sink in...With it splashed all over
the covers of local newspapers, its hard not to notice at all.
He has cited 'change in
his priorities in life' as the reason he is leaving plus 'some other personal
reasons'. He does not have any plans as to what he will be doing next, but one
thing he mentioned was that marriage was not on the cards yet.
this signify the end of this club?

support showered upon James by all his fans?

yes, James had won!!!!! Not that it came as a surprise to me though,
just as I guess it wasn't either for him....
came as a surprise though, was his "Thank-You" speech. Being voted as
the Top 10 most Popular Male Artiste in tonight's Star Awards 1999, I
mean...what can be more important than thanking those people that actually call
in to cast their vote, to support him, so that he is able to stand there and
give the "Thank-You" speech. Yeah, he did that.
the other hand, I also see why some people, who landed the "Best
Supporting Actress" Yang Li Bing, for that matter thank her Husband,
Li Nan Xing, their family for their support and thus enabling them to give such
good performances...and then to be the best.
I still don't see why James has gotta follow and thank some "mou-mou"
people!!@~! I don't see the connection. It's not as if she made him so popular
rite? And besides, NanXin is LiBing's husband, who is she to him? After what he
said, I really wonder...if I even should have supported him in the first place.
I used to think that I can call myself one of his greatest fan, but. now, I only
want to say...He is such a disappointment!!!
this is just my opinion, some people say fans come and go, but family don't.
What makes me wonder is, Don't girlfriends come and go too?
catch a glimpse of James? Well, he will be performing in the Millemium Swing
show on Orchard road. (31/12/99) I heard that James will be at Stage A,
wherever that is, and he'll be performing a song number with a few others
like Andrew Seow.
up next, James is going to star in another movie with Fann Wong and Peter
Ho. Filming is scheduled to start around mid to end Dec, so I guess we
can all watch out for the movie to be screened next year. Hurray~! I will
post more info about the movie here, once i get hold of them. So, do keep a
Have you all been watching James in the chinese drama "The Millennium
Bug" ? Don't you think he is just soooooo cute? Still as charming as
ever huh? Do you
have any comments about his role in the show? Do post them in the club's Forum!
on the pic above to look at more pics from the show!
up, do watch out for his upcoming movie titled "2000 AD" also
