Hong Kong — It appears that actor Simon Yam’s investments have not been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently Yam made a cool 20.62 million yuan (SGD3.9 million) from the sale of an office block at Ki Lung Street in Hong Kong. According to Hong Kong portal hk01.com, Yam purchased the property 11 years ago. Based on the land registry, the property was sold at 35 million yuan (SGD 7 million) via Yam’s company Karway Investments Limited.
“The company bought the property in 2010 at 14.38 million yuan.”
“With a built-up of 106.8385 sq metres, the block is currently being rented by a restaurant,” the portal reported.

In 2018, the actor told the media he would enter the property market when its price was at its lowest and he had confidence in Hong Kong’s property market.

Everybody knows that fame and fortune can be fleeting—you still have to make intelligent financial choices. You’d think celebrities would be able to manage their money, but sometimes, stars remind us that they’re only human and they make mistakes too. Here are a few celebrities who’ve hit rock bottom.
Puppy love! Reese Witherspoon is the ultimate dog lover and she wants everyone to know it. Whether she’s posing with dogs on set — like she frequently did as Elle Woods in the Legally Blonde franchise with her BFF Bruiser Woods — or is cuddling up her own pets (she has a few), Witherspoon is a true animal friend. Throughout the years, the Big Little Lies star and producer has taken her love of canines to the next level by consistently sharing photos of her family of dogs via social media. The Sweet Home Alabama actress has a long history of naming her animals after celebrities, like her current Labrador, Hank, named after country singer Hank Williams. The Draper James founder once had an English bulldog named Frank Sinatra after the “Come Fly With Me” crooner and a French bulldog named Coco Chanel for the legendary designer. Witherspoon takes her Instagram followers along with her through her daily duties as a pet owner, shows of her dogs’ adorable faces and frequently posts photos of them in costumes. Currently, her newsfeed is overflowing with photos of four puppies, Hank, American bulldog Lou, French bulldog Minnie Pearl and black Labrador Major. In November 2020, Minnie Pearl joined the Witherspoon family as its latest addition. She was introduced to her Instagram followers less than a month after the Walk the Line actress revealed that the family’s other French bulldog Pepper had passed away. Lou, for his part, joined the squad in June 2019 two months after Witherspoon’s longtime pup, a German Shepherd named Nash, died. Major was introduced to fans in January 2021. The New Orleans native is also mother to three children, Ava and Deacon, whom she shares with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, and Tennessee, whom she shares with husband Jim Toth.
