Now, there's 'Carrie Lam 2.0' - two of them

Central Station | 21 Mar 2017

Is it a coincidence or the typical look of a woman in public office?

Chief executive candidate Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor recently found two look-alike "sisters," with the help of sharp-eyed citizens.

One is Jessie Ting Yip Yin-mei, the former postmaster general and newly appointed head of the chief executive- elect's office.

Dubbed "Carrie Lam 2.0" by netizens, Ting is widely recognized as looking very much like Lam, with her short hair and glasses, a similar shape of chin, and almost the same smile.

Some reporters new to the political beat have reportedly chased after Ting, mistaking her for Lam.

The other "sister" is former director of Home Affairs, Pamela Tan Kam Mi- wah, who also has short hair and wears glasses.

Lam isn't the oldest of the three, being born in 1957. Tan was born in 1956, and Ting in 1963.
