    Do you guys know about Henry Tam, he also played at the KLRC NZ Open..

    Some people including myself think that he looks like Jet Li, and some say he doesn't..

    ...in a quick glance, compare Chen Hung Ling with our handsome BC owner (1st pic, in the middle)...;)

    If you continue to insist that either of them looks like Harry Potter, I will insist that Barrack Obama looks like Richard Dawkins :(

    A pair of glasses is only what you are going on.
    That hardly amounts to a close Potter resemblance!

    But, kwun & CHL, maybe.... :)
