Jean-Claude Van Damme calls Hong Kong home for last 3+ years

Just learned that Jean-Claude Van Damme has been living in Hong Kong for the last 3 years or so (of course he also spends some time in Brussels, but HK is now his "home")... I'd be curious if any of my Hong Kong-based friends ever saw him on the streets, even with the chances low. I never have in >10 visits to Hong Kong, albeit most visits were very short-term stops taking advantage of long or overnight layovers.

The Expendables 2 is upcoming soon. It will be nice to see if Van Damme can return to form considering he used to be so big and now has been stuck in a direct-to-video rut.
I still rank Bloodsport and Kickboxer among the top action films I've seen, even though parts of them are campy by today's standards.
