With Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh's win at the Oscars, media all over the world are sifting through archives to republish old news of the Malaysian star as a way to refresh the memory of their readers as well as to reintroduce the 60-year-old to new fans.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation unearthed rare footage of Yeoh at the Moomba Festival in 1984 where the Ipoh-born star was crowned Miss Moomba International Tourism.
In the video, Yeoh can be seen waving to spectators from a float pulled along Melbourne's Swanston Street by a red tractor.
Upon her return home, Yeoh told the local media that she spoke about Malaysia in the beauty pageant as part of the requirement in the competition.
Hong Kong media has also been reporting about Yeoh's first acting gig – in a Guy Laroche TV commercial opposite Jackie Chan.
"My first working job was a commercial, and of all things, with Jackie Chan," Yeoh said in an interview last year.
The commercial then led to her first starring role in the Hong Kong flick Yes, Madam where she would meet her ex-husband Dickson Poon who served as a producer.
Over on Facebook, a user by the name of Johnathan Lau shared black-and-white photos of Yeoh when she was a contestant in the Miss Malaysia World pageant in 1983.
"I've seen these photos around the house thousand times and heard the stories but never realised who it REALLY was in these photos," said Lau whose mother was a fellow contestant in the same pageant as Yeoh.
