Many says that I look alike Maggie Q. Errr… but I’m doubt in it as I can’t recognize any physically appearance on her face look alike! haha! No matter how, I stil being thankful to think that I look alike Maggie Q, who is a gorgeous beauty known in the world 🙂

Who’s Maggie Q after all?

Her real name is Margaret Denise Quigley (Chinese: 李美琪) or better known her as Maggie Q. She is an American actress and former fashion model. She initially gained fame in Hong Kong. She was born in Honolulu, Hawaii to an American father of Polish, Irish and French descent and a Vietnamese mother. Her parents met while her father was stationed in Vietname. Maggie is the youngest of 5 children. She has two sisters and two half-siblings from her mother’s previous marriage in Vietnam. She still visits Hawaii with her family, including Claire Foglia. After graduating from Mililani High School, she travelled to Japan and Hong Kong to earn money as a fashion model. In 1998 she got her first role in a Chinese-language TV series, and she has been acting ever since. While still relatively unfamiliar to audiences in the United States, she has achieved celebrity status in Hong Kong and elsewhere in East Asia. Because of her non-Chinese heritage, many of her Asian film appearances are in English or dubbed in the Chinese languages.

Her big breakthroughs into the film world came when she bagged the lead roles in the Hong Kong action thrillers Gen-Y-Cops and Naked Weapon, in which she played the sexy but vulnerable martial artist assassin Charlene Ching. She has also played the titular role of Harmony in the German-Singapore telemovie collaboration Das Haus Der Harmonie, opposite leading Singaporean actress Fann Wong.Recently, she starred in her biggest Hollywood role to date alongside Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible III. She played Zhen, the only female member of his elite IMF team. Maggie plays one of the computer hacking extortionists in the 2007 Bruce Willis action thriller, Live Free or Die Hard, the fourth film in the popular Die Hard franchise.

Daniel & I were schoolmate during our high school in Subang Jaya. We did not get to know each other until we met during a local drama acts in KL. We were surpised that we should have knew each other for a long time! No matter how, it’s never be too late to have a good friend around 🙂

I’ve witness how great and success he build his career in the entertainment field for the past few years. In fact, if I’m not wrong, he started his modelling only since year 2003 and here is now where he’ve made his effort to stand! Congratulations Daniel and I’m so proud that I know you 🙂

This was a photo captured during my 1st day appearance for StarCeleb in The Curve while Daniel is one of the host for the show! Although we’ve not met nor keep in touch with each other for quite a long time but stil, we recognized each other by giving out a wink 😉

We spent some time to catch up for some chit-chat and I guess I’ve made some other girls jealous out there, hehe! Hey wait~ We’re friends! We’ve chatted on how’s life been, how’s going and I actually advise him on cars which automotive is my profession right? 😀

However, I’m too wish Daniel will get recover as soon as possible of his injured leg and may him move on further in his career in the entertainment line 🙂
