Very sad news for friends, family, and fans of Anita Mui...she has died at the age of 40 from cancer. Anita co-starred with Jackie in such memorable films as Rumble in the Bronx and Drunken Master 2. Anita, who was a good friend of Jackie's and Willie's, was also a talented singer. Condolences to her family and loved ones.

You can read the touching words of Willie Chan here.

These words from Jackie:

"She didn't belong to the entertainment industry. She belonged to all Hong Kong people."
"She went peacefully and beautifully. Her own last wish was that her fans and reporters could let her go quietly, not to cry and call out her name," action movie star Jackie Chan, a good friend of Mui's, told reporters after her death.
"She really loved to be beautiful," he said somberly.

(well, she's a little older now)

The Kids Corner has a new playmate: Holly "Jabba" Hecht has enthusiastically agreed to be our resident cartoonist. Her wonderful drawings will be popping up all over the website and in the Little Dragon News. (She's the one who drew the little Jackie reading the newspaper, above.)

Holly was born in Anchorage, Alaska in the Year of the Dragon. When she was a kid she taught herself how to draw with dinosaurs and dragons. Her hobbies are writing, drawing, and playing the saxophone. She is fluent in Russian and is learning Mandarin Chinese to prepare for a trip to China next fall. Holly works and lives in Anchorage, Alaska.

The Kids Corner webmaster is thrilled to have Holly's drawings appearing on the website. They'll appear here as fast as she can make them!
