Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh has returned to Malaysia with the Oscar statuette.

She presented the gold-plated statuette to her 83-year-old mother, Janet Yeoh, and brought it to pay homage to her father Datuk Yeoh Kian Tiek.

Michelle Yeoh, who made history at the Oscars and became the first Asian woman actress to win the honour, announced her return on Facebook.

Michelle Yeoh also uploaded two photos; one is her mother holding the statuette trophy brought back by her.

The other is her bringing the statuette to her father’s grave.

It is understood that Michelle Yeoh returned to Ipoh to visit the grave last weekend.

She is currently not in Ipoh and may have flown to Hong Kong.

She will fly back to Kuala Lumpur to attend a fan meeting at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur on 18 April.
