8 Days -- This week's issue of 8 Days also featured James and Diana at the online chat session at Plaza Singapura. 

3000 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!


Online chat with James Lye -- Last Sunday, 13th Feb 2000, James Lye was at Plaza Singapura for an online chat session organised by, 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 for details of the chat and also watch a video of the event!

Club 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...=)


The JLOFC Members' List -- This month, we will be updating our fan club registry, so for all of you who are members of the club, or think you are one, please check out the members' list to confirm that you are listed. If not, then you might want to re-join the club again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

There was an interview 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 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 guess I can only post the audio clip of the interview here. I'll try to do it soon. So, in the meantime...Hang in there!

22/01/00 -- James's resignation is splashed all over the headlines of all the local newspapers. See main for more details.


James is quitting TCS!!!

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.

Does this signify the end of this club? 

Is this the end of all the support showered upon James by all his fans? 

There are so many questions and I have been thinking about what will be the next best step here at the James Lye Online Fan Club.

If you have anything to say about it, you are welcomed to share it with us in the forum.

Do you have anything you wish to say to James regarding this matter? Wanna wish him luck? or express your sincere wish that he might change his mind about leaving? or simply just let him know that you have been a fan of his? 

Well, here's your chance. Send all your messages to my email add at . I will compile all of what you guys have to say to him and will be giving it to him, on behalf of the club.

Please send all emails to me by Friday, 28th Jan, 2000.

[Note: The deadline has been extended till Friday]

Star Awards 1999

Yes! yes,  James had won!!!!!  Not that it came as a surprise to me though, just as I guess it wasn't either for him....

What 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.

On 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.

BUT, 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!!!

Okay, 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? 

Wanna 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. 

Coming 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 look out!


Hey! 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

Next up, do watch out for his upcoming movie titled "2000 AD" also starring heavenly king Aaron Kwok and Phyllis Quek. It should be out early next year! More info will be posted here soon, so do keep a look out!
