Yao Wenlong’s Mystery Friend Who Made An Anonymous Donation To Malaysian Flood Victims Is Clearly Christopher Lee
Wenlong’s hints were pretty obvious, and Chris was name-dropped by a politician on Facebook.
On Tuesday (Dec 28), Mediacorp actor Yao Wenlong, who is currently back in his hometown Johor Bahru, shared a screenshot of a funds transfer statement on his socials.
The 51-year-old revealed that a “Malaysian friend” who has “settled down and established a career in Singapore” and “made a name for himself in Taiwan” had asked him to help send money to those in flood-stricken areas.
This “friend” had also requested anonymity, so Wenlong blurred out his name, as well as the amount donated, in the receipt.
“Do you know who it is? Help me write his name,” Wenlong quipped in the caption.
Who is Wenlong talking about?
To be honest, it’s not exactly difficult to guess who Wenlong’s pal might be.
Aside from the rather obvious clues about his identity, Wenlong only covered part of his friend’s name in the receipt, leaving the words “Lee M” still visible.
And how many famous Malaysians with “Lee M” in their name are married and have found success in both Singapore and Taiwan?

He’s also one of the most respected actors in local showbiz and is doing well in Taiwan too, having picked up his second Golden Bell Award for Best Actor a few months ago.
Now that we think about it: Was Wenlong even trying to keep Chris’ identity a secret to begin with?
It was basically spelled it out for us
What’s more, Malaysian politician Liow Cai Tung, whom Wenlong tagged in his post, directly name-dropped Christopher in her thank you note on Facebook.
“Doing good without asking for recognition,” she wrote. “Thank you to TV king Christopher Lee for caring about Malaysia and helping the victims through Wenlong despite not being in the country. We will use the donations to properly help the affected areas and overcome the difficulties together with the victims.”

8days.sg contacted Christopher’s manager to confirm if it really was the actor who made the donation but did not receive a response.
Other news outlets also requested to speak to the star but were told that he is unable to accept any interviews as he is currently busy with work in Taiwan.
Perhaps he just wants to keep a low profile about his contribution
