When Yanyan and I disagree with each other...

We ask people to vote.

Please vote for Yanyan ok? She's HIDEIOUS!

I admit that I looked siao. LOOK AT THE EYES!! (I'm) As if I'm high on drugs.

But but..Yanyan looked UGLIER! She looked like one of the 'sisters' in 'The White Chick'.




Speaking of Yanyan, remember the SPG issue?

My smelly friend was annoyed 'cos she didn't understand why did the 19-year-old actually put up nude photos of herself. Yanyan felt that she, still a student shouldn't do so: she's not even in University, not working. What if her future boss(es) or teachers see them? What will they think?

Many commented that Yanyan had no grounds to be angry because like SPG, Yanyan uses sex as an appeal too.
Utter bullshit.
When Yanyan talks about sexually inclined topics, she decorates them with humour, even if you think they are not funny at all.
When SPG talks about sex, she writes in a more serious, more matter-of-fact manner.
Yanyan talks abouts orgasms, dildos, vibrators; SPG talks about sex life, describing them rather vividly.
Neither is wrong. But you can't compare them. It's different.

My point of view? I agree with Yanyan.
However, I was more in a neutral position due to:
1. The nude pictures were posted on her blog.
People who follow her blog are obviously the more open-minded ones. And since they are on the Net, it is generally nothing compared to porn, which are easily available too.
2. AND, she kept her identity unknown. At least she makes an effort to blur her face and in the 1st newpaper article, no photos of her at all.

One week later, SPG's face appeared in the newpaper.
I was so agitated when I saw her face, that Yanyan thought I was mad.
On her photo, it was written, 'My life, my values'.
In her blog, yes.
When you face appear BIG BIG in national papers, IT IS NO LONGER SO.

Now, not only open-minded people know about SPG. Almost the whole country know SPG, and her face.
What was she thinking?
Her family members including her are Christians.
Christianity don't allow pre-marital sex.
Yes, not every Christian abides that rule. But no one will announce it to the whole world, would they?
Let's not bother about what people think of her.
What will their fellow Christians think of her parents?
What will her parents feel? How about her 2 younger siblings?

And then horrors of horrors, the Wb error. (rhymes leh!)
Early the next morning after the article came out, Abbie's mummy called me.
Wah seh.
I explained to her that the papers had already agreed to publish an apology.

In the afternoon, I wander into my parents room to get my daily dosage of news.
And then horrors of horrors of horrors, I saw a copy of Wanbao lying on the table.
'WHY GOT Wb?!' (We usually reads XM)
'Aiya, Sunday's XM not nice, now we buy Wanbao on Sundays.'
I hope my parents are the only ones who do such a thing.
If there are really people who only buy Wb on Sundays, then they wouldn't have seen the apology on Monday!

Right after I read the article featuring the wrong picture, I went around shrieking in the house, announcing the mistake.
Only people who've heard my voice will know how irritating it is. HA!
Then my mummy said,'Oh ya lor! I saw Yanyan's picture and I was wondering they put wrongly is it?'
WONDERING NIA! Which means she believed it to a certain extent. She didn't clarify with me after reading it!
But well, who can blame my mum? People usually believes whatever the papers wrote.

Because Yanyan is my friend, my parents bought Wb the next day.
Guess what?
'Aiyoehah! The apology so small! GUI KAN AH? (ghost see)' Mummy exclaimed.
Same responses from my friends and forever KPO cousin.

Poor Yanyan.
Eh, Wb! Got stingier anot?

People make mistakes. Yes. But this is not like any other news when one celebrity hold hand with another celebrity leh.
We are talking about an issue of controversy.
We are talking about a girl who published her nude photos on the Internet.
We are talking about another girl whose picture got published when she is not even the person in question.
We are talking about the other girl who might be mistaken by the public that she took nude pictures of herself and published them.
We are talking about all these happening in Singapore, as Asian country where people are still pretty conservative.
And all we got is a tiny winy apology.

Luckily quite a number of people recognises Yanyan's face to notice the mistake. (Or is it unlucky?)
But considering the target audience of Wb...Good luck ah, my friend.

Zhen de shi suay ga lao sai.

What do you guys think?
Constructive views are welcomed.

Oh, I hope everyone could be like me. I read the article on SPG and when I saw Xiaxue's picture, I was like, "Mmmm... Maybe it's the same report from Newpaper. Never mind, can skip.". And I stopped reading. Okay, I'm blind. I realised that it was printed wrongly only when I read Xiaxue's blog.

I think there's nothing Xiaxue can do now as she agreed with the apology in the first place. I mean, if anyone became SUAY and got pictures published like this, will definately demand more than an apology.

(Unless their pictures are wrongly published for Kate Moss or whichever big star, it will be a different story.)

I think Xiaxue was nice and she probably wanted the matter to rest peacefully. This is a rather objective issue.

I do hope this is not affecting Xiaxue in anyways.

By the way, the picture (Siao Shu Yin and Brinjal Xiaxue) Xiaxue posted in her blog, was more funny than ugly. Hehe...

Legal point of view.
yan yan have the absolute right for not accepting the tiny appology plsu she can be consider a celebrity so she have the right to ask for compensation for her loss, maybe a few thoudand dollar.

holy shit, here you go worrying whether ppl will not see the apology from the papers, and still mistaken her as SPG. PLEASE FOR CHRIST'S SAKES. NO ONE in the right state of mind will liken her to SPGS!!! cos
1) she's an utter turn off. guys will NEVER desire copulating with an ugly panda. (even after photoshop edits)
2) read reason 1)
3) ain't the 2 reasons above enough?!?!
