I’m a kawaii camwhore… woot! :)

Hey, ultimate coolness! Guess what, my camwhoring works like magic. I’m suddenly getting more hits on my blog and people are blogging about my blog mere hours after I post a blog! Wow.

From Cowboy Caleb’s blog:

Local actress Qiaoyun has got game. Actually she’s got a Nintendo Wii and a PS3 and lurves taking photos of herself with them. [read more…]

CBC is a real life friend (kinda… I’ve met him like a few times and there was this time he made me do a Long Island Tea race with Ruok and I won, but that was probably because I cheated and roped Nanny Wen in to help me). Anyway, it’s great to be made fun of by him because I love his quirky humour and his blog is really popular. I mean it.

Next up…

From koolgeek’s blog:

Singaporean artistes are making use of blogs to gain popularity. Not a bad thing though; but … maybe they should cut down a little on cam whoring and put some brainy stuffs on it… [read more…]

This guy I don’t know at all, but it’s still nice of him to link me and give me some constructive advice.

But I do have a few things to clarify to people who don’t know me, never seen all my TV appearances, and never met me in real life.

Firstly, about “putting brainy stuff” on my blog:

Well, I don’t want to. I was a professional writer and I wrote brainy stuff for a living. I still do write brainy stuff now, but when I do, I am always paid for my effort because it’s my profession. I don’t get paid to write my blog, so I write fun, frivolous stuff in it because I enjoy it.

Secondly, about “cutting the kawaii-pretence and putting on a proper personality (as though you’re not having enough on teevees)”:

It may be very hard for people to believe this, but the kawaii thing IS my real personality. That’s how I am in real life. If people think I’m fake or trying to act cute, too bad. And, as a matter of fact, I don’t have enough of that on TV. I am never kawaii on TV because I am often cast in roles which are totally different from my real personality (which is what being an actress is all about). When I’m off TV, I revert back to myself, the way I feel comfortable being, the way I enjoy being.

Thirdly, about “putting high hopes on my legs”

Actually, I do. I like my legs and they’ve helped me get modelling and acting jobs that pay well, so my bank account is very pleased with them.

Now that that’s out of the way…

I’m not mad at koolgeek, honestly. I’m pleased with his response and I thank him for taking the time to offer his opinion and advice. I totally respect what he says and I think he makes sense.

But there are always two sides to a story and here I have presented my side, so I would call it a truce. :)

And, now, for some brainy stuff.

I have made the observation that the people who openly trash camwhoring/bimbo/pretty bloggers, who criticise them for not writing intellectual stuff, actually do not read intellectual stuff themselves. These are the people who send hate mail to Xiaxue and post hateful comments on Dawn Yang‘s blog.

But you almost never see the same people post comments on actually intellectual blogs. If they prefer to read political blogs or social commentary blogs or blogs that give you the hottest financial investment tips, then why the heck do they not stop reading and commenting on fluff blogs and, instead, go contribute to blogs that talk about really important issues in life?

(And, please, I’m not talking about koolgeek here. koolgeek is cool because he offers constructive criticism. I’m talking about kids who post comments like “bitch, get a life” or “you are so disgusting and shameful” and leave it at that.

These are the same kids who are too stupid to realise that their hateful comments are, in fact, HELPING people like Xiaxue and Dawn Yang earn the big bucks. Their hateful comments are generating hype and publicity for these celebrity bloggers and making them even more successful.

So… I think the joke’s on them.

Okay, and now, please bring on all your hateful comments so I can be as successful and rich as Xiaxue and Dawn Yang. Thanks.

Hate comments. How refreshing

Better a wannabe than someone who has no confidence to set goals and no drive to achieve them.

Better focus energies on achieving personal goals than on hatred, jealousy and cynicism.

Better happy than miserable.

Don’t you think?
