What's wrong with this picture?

*Update: Since the following picture is available in Dawn's public friendster profile, the watermark has been removed.

A reader just sent me this picture of Dawn Yang/Yeo with the caption "What's wrong with this picture?"

Hi

The comments section is a forum for open discussion. I am not an expert at facial analysis although I do notice at first glance that there is something wrong with the picture because I couldn't achieve the same effect when trying to imitate that expression in the mirror. Maybe some experts would like to share their insights.

What about the IPs?

Xialanxue...

Thank you for responding. I was asking if you actually keep a record of the IPs or do you actually have any scripts installed that store the IPs of the commentors and how confidential are the IPs being kept.

I've seen many who posted their opinions which might subjected them to defarmation issues. It is an open forum for open participations, yes, but you can't denied that many posted at that spur of moment with offensive choice of words without much thoughts being rendered about the possible consequences.

If you have the IPs, I think it would be better that you indicated to the commentors that their IPs are stored(If, it is) and it will allow them to pause for a second and phrase their words in a less offensive ways. You don't take away their rights to speak but they have to stand up for their own actions if they are being asked for.

I believe you allow freedom of speech but you don't encourage them to speak up without knowing the likely consequences, do you?

xialanxue said...

Do you know where I could get such a script? I don't think blogspot has that feature (Not that I am aware of anyway).

Even if xlx doesn't a log of the IPs of the people who left comments, you can be sure that blogger.com maintains its own IP log.

How else do you think they managed to get hold of the secondholocaust guy who was charged under the Sedition act. Blogger.com revealed his IP address to the Singapore police and he was subsequently tracked down through his ISP.

To the anonymous that posted on Sun Nov 13, 01:29:22 PM 2005:

I think many people misunderstand the exact issues that are being brought out here. There are a few to be exact -

1) How tolerant is our society towards people who have had plastic surgery?

2) How tolerant are we towards people who use the mass media to deceive?

3) How tolerant are we towards people who try to portray a different identity online?

4) Can society handle the truth?

her mom went for plastic surgery on the nose and chin and eyelids too but opted for a more subtle result. good on her!

dawn yeo, her entire nose is stiff like hell (both nostrils and bridge), as though someone injected something to immobilize it. the skin wrinkles everywhere but the forehead (suspected botox) and nose. can anyone else try to make that face? haha

XX's a vanity blog, if she isn't going to post her pictures online, how can she flaunt her vanity? She wants attention and fame, if she isn't going to post her pictures online, how can she get the attention she is seeking?

If she is so real and upright, why does she even feel the need to photoshopped all her photos? Show the world with her real face and stopped accusing others hypocripsy when she herself is the biggest one.

1) How tolerant is our society towards people who have had plastic surgery?

YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT VERY TOLERANT. PLASTIC SURGERY IS A PERSONAL CHOICE, WHY SHOULD DAWN BE VILIFIED/CONDEMNED FOR IT? GRANTED, DAWN SHOULD HAVE COME CLEAN ABOUT THE ALTERATIONS, BUT I DON'T THINK IT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO PUT UP THESE PHOTOS OF HER. AND NOW, YOU'VE GONE AS FAR AS TO PUT UP THE PHOTO WITH HER MUM. PRAY, PLEASE RESPECT THEIR PRIVACY.

2) How tolerant are we towards people who use the mass media to deceive?

MASS MEDIA IS ABOUT LIES OR "FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT". THE MASS MEDIA IS NEVER OBJECTIVE. TAKE THE ARTICLE BY ST REGARDING XIAXUE'S TAKE ON HANDICAP TOILETS. IT PAINTED HER IN QUITE A POSITIVE LIGHT. THEREFORE, IF YOUR PERSONAL MISSION IS TO ELIMINATE IT, WHY DON'T YOU PICK ON OTHER ACTORS/ACTRESSES/MODELS? SINCE YOU PRIDE YOURSELF FOR BEING OBJECTIVE, MORE EVIDENCE OF SUCH "DECEIT" IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.

3) How tolerant are we towards people who try to portray a different identity online?

I HIGHLY DOUBT MANY XLX READERS KNOW YOUR TRUE IDENTITY. OUR PRIVATE AND PUBLIC PERSONA DIFFER, VERY MUCH LIKE YOURS. SO THIS QUESTION IS MOOT.

4) Can society handle the truth?

MAYBE IF YOU STOP PAINTING PLASTIC SURGERY IN SUCH A BAD LIGHT, SOCIETY CAN BECOME MORE ENLIGHTENED.

THANKYOUVERYMUCH.

A lot of furore from Dawn supporters here. But xialanxue, I agree with you that the truth deserves to be revealed to her 'fans'.

I have nothing against Dawn though i think it is only proper that she comes clean with her plastic surgery.

There's is nothing wrong with plastic surgery and I have done some research on it as I was/am intending to get some..

It is clear that dawn has done a rhinoplasty, if you notice the bottom inner corner of her right eye, the skin has been overstretched because of the insert to make her bridge taller and straighter. I'm pretty sure her mom has had surgery on her eyes too.

But once again, i reiterate my point that there's nothing wrong with plastic surgery. Just that if she has the guts to go for it, she should have the guts to admit it. No one would have faulted her if she hasn't been so evasive or if she hadn't lied. I'm sure all of you know the open secret that a majority of actors and singers have gone under the knife.

Agagooga said...

What Dawn did is one thing, but don't drag her mother, or indeed any of her family, into this.

lil said...

is that Dawn Yang (why the fuck Yang not Yeo? want to sound like an American born Chinese is it? or to play on her fictitious Dutch background is it?) smiling or grimacing like she was in pain? the eyes and the "smile" don't go together. and if she is a very *genuine* person, the eyes and smile complement each other.

wasn't MJ in so much pain that's why he become a bit of a psycho? taking too much painkillers perhaps?

Anonymous said...

isn't this supposed to be a site about xiaxue? why are u trying so hard to attack this poor girl now? it's really a turn-off. she is a genuinely nice person who doesn't go out to hurt people, so what if her beauty is achieved with help? AT LEAST SHE HAS INNER BEAUTY UNLIKE YOU PEOPLE WITH ROTTEN INSIDES AND THAT MATTERS MORE.

Wat's next? Genetically-engineered babies becoz it's only human nature to want smart and beautiful kids?

and btw, if u detractors want so much for her to admit anything, it is only fair u ask all the other singapore celebs to come clean too. BAH.

LionHeart said...

THank you for yr comments. Guess nowadays people are too narrow minded and read too much into blog posting. Do feel free to chat .. about this topic.

Anonymous said...

this is not a case of enhancing features. it is about RECONSTRUCTING her whole face and lying about it. Does she think that the whole world is stupid with low IQ and blind? The min I saw her pic I knew that she had a nose job. I just didnt expect her to change her face so drastically. Natural beauty my foot. She is not the only celeb (if you consider her to be one) to be scrutinized by the media. Fann Wong's enhanced cheeks, Ann Kok's enlarged boobs, werent all these discussed by people during a certain period of time? Lin ZHi Ling only had a boob job and the taiwan media keeps harping on it, I cant imageine how Dawn will be shredded to pieces when her company promotes her in taiwan. Since Dawn wants to be a public figure, she has gotta accept it. Anyway, does she have any talents at all????

delia said...

to lil,

Kindly explain how "yang" sounds more american than "yeo". And I would think they are the same. yeo is only a dialect version of 'yang' which you should know if you are a chinese.

If you are not, here you go, the explanation.

delia said...

oh yeah, in case you are also not from the relevant age group, people of dawn's age would have both the hanyu pinyin and the dialect names on their ics. So we, people from this age group, probably treat the 2 names as interchangeable. I don't see why this small point got so many worked up.Or are you guys just trying to jump on anything possibly incriminating evidence to bash her?

lil said...

delia - what i meant to say is some American Chinese go with the names of Yang, Zhang, Li, Chen if their parents/grandparents come from China or Taiwan. an example i can think of is Wong Li Lin's husband, something Wu.

in other words, is she totally cutting off her Singaporean or even Hokkien heritage? why changing the Yeo to Yang? new personality, "new" surname?

Anonymous said...

read above: they are interchangeable.

So Wu will also be Goh.

Bambi said...

anon 0608, about being shredded to pieces in the taiwan media is an understatement.

Anonymous said...

just give the girl a break. just because u enjoy a higher viewership than other blogs doesnt give u the authority to demand she gives u an explanation and whatever. it's her life and she can do what she deem fit to her face. she does not owe anyone an explanation, much less to u. has she harmed anyone with her blog posts? just go back to slamming xiaxue, or even better, look in the mirror and reflect upon your stinking self.

Anonymous said...

XLX: I don't understand why you are posting that picture of Dawn with her mother (I am assuming that is her mother) everywhere. Not only this blog but on Hardwarezone Forums as well.

What is this?

It's one thing if you say that Dawn lied about her having plastic surgery, but it is quite another to start dragging her family into this. If you are a responsible journalist, as you say you are, please take the picture down. Confine your arguments to the girl herself, not her mother or indeed, anymore of her family members.

I find this distasteful and utterly disgracely. It reflects poorly on you.

How different are you from XX, whom you condemn, if you start implicating other people in this saga? Also, while I can see some sense in your argument that Dawn, having said in public that she did not have surgery and is now a mini-celeb because of her looks, should have a case to answer, I think it is in poor taste that you have published her photos in such blatant fashion. You have irreversibly steered the public's (or at least your readers') views in one direction. Your "open letter" aims to achieve nothing more than Dawn's confession and it seems, her embarassment at your popularity. Is this objective journalism?

Please, exercise some discretion. Let the girl have her word before introducing what you term to be evidence. If, at the end of the day, she proves that she did not have surgery, you're opening yourself up to a potential defamation suit.

Or maybe you already have with that latest picture.

Anonymous said...

Oh yah, I think that (can't be sure) unless you actually took that picture you are displaying on the front, you have no claim to its copyright, so I do suggest that you take down that "http://xialanxue.blogspot.com" tag you have blatantly attached to it.

Why are you guys so agitated by these? Don't you follow her and read here out of curiosities? You too wanted to know if anyone will ever get concrete evidence to proof that she DID cuts up her face right? If you don't care, why are you following the gossips?

You too want to know the truth, so cut off your self-righteous acts!

Anonymous said...

I want to know the truth and how CBK is going to react to it but I do agree with some that you shouldn't picture any of her family members here.

Kim said...

The mother looks completely natural, whilst she, doesn't. Does she have European blood or something?. Because looking back at the older photos, she looks pure Chinese, not to be offensive or anything.

But no matter how hard she tries, she'll still look fake. She blogs fairly well though, so it's a pity that beneath all that wit lies a girl made of plastic. And we all thought we could relate to her

I think this Dawn girl had a nose job. Anyway, This is a great site. People like Xiaxue or Dawn.. They put themselves up there for scrutiny. ;)

I notice liao, its her nose. The nose is the only portion of the face that never changes.

Unless reconstruction.

anthonio armani james II said...

Hey Dawn, if you are viewing this blog, dont worry, no big deal having a nose job, i have had countless blow jobs before.

xialanxue said...

Points of clarification:

1) Dawn has yet to respond to the open letter.
2) Any opinions from the readers are merely just that - Their personal opinions. Since Dawn herself has not responded, people who shout "plastic surgery" are merely speculating. Their views cannot be treated as facts.
3) whatever the case, I have nothing against people who have had plastic surgery, only liars.
4) I agree that discussions should be on the topic at hand, not to stray towards family members and what not. I don't understand why some of the readers are starting to attack her mother. Anyway, this picture can be found on Dawn's public friendster profile.
5) This is not a site about xiaxue. It started out as a parody but its main purpose is to seek out the truth.

You do realise that even though you yourself have strategically stayed out of the substantive discussion, your hosting of this site and the authorising of these comments can still render you liable to any defamation suit brought against you. It's no excuse that you yourself did not sanction (or understand) these views. They may be the personal views of your readers, but your role in allowing these views to be read by thousands of other people is very much sufficient.

Anonymous said...

4) Anyway, this picture can be found on Dawn's public friendster profile.

The fact that pictures can be found in the public does not give you a right to publish or reproduce them without the permission of the owner/author. Books are everywhere. Why, I can pick up Harry Potter at MPH or Popular bookstore. The fact that they are in public circulation does not give me the right to reproduce it in its entirely. Same for the photographs - the face that these are in public circulation does not necessarily mean (save in limited situations) that you have the right to plaster the photo on your blogsite.

For a supposed media journalist, you don't really appear aware that your actions are potentially exposing to some trouble.

The retreat to the "self-righteous" argument is not very helpful when the tag itself is easily applicable to each and every reader here. Isn't the writer above being equally "self-righteous" by expressing his anger against these so-called "self-righteous" post.

The truth is, the above post misses the point entirely. Yes, we "self-righteous" readers read this blog but not necessarily because we're interested in whether Dawn has or has not had surgery. That is her privacy and I respect that - public figure or not (even that is debatable). I think we're more interested in stopping this nonsense of invading a poor girl and her mother's privacies.

5) This is not a site about xiaxue. It started out as a parody but its main purpose is to seek out the truth.

---

From where I come from (Earth), a parody seeks to mimic its target with the aim of making some statement, usually funny, about it. Your site, on the other hand, is not a parody to begin with. It is a hate-site, pure and simple.

What is the objective truth? Posting a picture of XX in front of a Star Wars poster and saying that she is jealous of Dawn without dicephering what she actually meant in her blog - is that being concerned with the truth?

Or does being concerned with the truth involve plastering pictures of someone from Sec 1 to now (spanning some 10 years) and asking, quite without reason, in an "open letter" for nothing less than a confession.

The TRUTH is that this site has assumed the truth is many instances. An objective concern/search for the truth does not involve subjective and mocking opinions which originate from this site.

Think about that.

nic said...

firstly, u people blast off at xiaxue for photoshopping her photos when she admits it and even puts pictures of herself w/o photoshop or make up online.

NOW, you people blast off at dawn for not coming clean about her plastic surgery.

DONT say its not the same. cause it really really is. just to make themselves look better, but one with the money and one without.

isnt it unfair to xiaxue? she was honest and she got bombarded for it as well.

and also, many went on and on about the whole handicapped toilet issue, because xiaxue talked about it.

HOWEVER, when SPG wrote about it in the newspaper and her own blog, sharing similar views with xiaxue, that it can be used by non-disabled people, no one blasted off at her!

WHY?

its because u ppl, esp xlx, is biased against her. i betcha, if it was spg or someone else who also gets high viewership who talked about the KL trip or the toilets, it would be taken as if it was just a speck of dust.

but the fact tt it was xx who said it, you guys blew the whole matter up.

also another thing xlx.

blog is blog,
newspaper is newspaper.

blog = nothing wrong if its not facts.

newspaper = must be factual.

dawn's and xx's are BLOGS.

why should u care if they are true? and why didnt u speak up about jean marie falsely reporting xx's words?

objective? NO.

integrity? NO.

u have the right to talk and make this website to ruin others lives. but dun forget, people have their own rights to keep quiet too.

all pictures in mags and some newspapers are edited before they go on print. why dont u start complaining about whoever who got edited to look slimmer hence is also lying to the masses?

dont judge others please, JOURNALIST.

you are lying too by staying behind ur persona of the righteous journalist xialanxue.

you are lying to the masses of who u really are.

2) Any opinions from the readers are merely just that - Their personal opinions. Since Dawn herself has not responded, people who shout "plastic surgery" are merely speculating. Their views cannot be treated as facts.

Like you said, speculation. And yet so many people here are so convinced that she went under the knife that its not so much opinion than self-proclaimed fact. Give her the benefit of the doubt, yeah?

3) whatever the case, I have nothing against people who have had plastic surgery, only liars.

Like you said, all this is speculation. How can you deem her a liar if it's merely opinion but not fact? My opinion is that you're a psychopathic killer. Should I take you to court then?

You, as a *cough* journalist, jolly well know that anything put up for public discretion can and WILL be scrutinized.

Seek out the truth? Wake up, nobody fucking owes you the truth, you're not the bloody truth police.

XLX got suckered to start this "expose" against dawn. just because some idiots or perhaps her jealous ex schoolmates try to flatter you by appealing to your "objective journalistic professionalism". Honey, not everyone who flatters you is right. They probably have their own personal agendas against dawn and you got used by them.

This is not "investigative journalism" too. I am sure you know what the term really entails. Certainly not tabloid trashy rubbish

Honestly, what's the big deal if Dawn Yeo/Yang did have plastic surgery? So what if she did? So what if she did not?

Surely you guys have better things to do than analyse whether Dawn Yeo/Yang has done something to her nose or forehead? Surely Singaporeans (or other nationalities) have more fruitful things to do?

This squabbling between Dawn Yeo/Yang's fans and enemies is so silly. Extremely silly.

wow I think the Dawn supporters/Dawn r succeeding in trying to turn the tables around. But as far as I can c, there's nothing in xlx's entry that says anything about plastic surgery, dawn's mother or anything like that. In fact, the mother thing was started by the anonymous that posted on Nov 13, 01:58:47 PM.

I think the discussion is that the expression on Dawn's face is a little funny. People can twist words to such degree that it's scary. I am quite sure most of the anti-xlx anonymous here are actually the same person reinforcing each other.

The views from readers of this site in the form of comments do not in any way represent the views of this site.

--> This isn't going to help if someone decides to sue you for defamation. This is the same thing as a newspaper. (as you should know, being a journalist and all) The newspaper can claim that it never did approve of the defamatory comments but that would not be relevant. Maybe for damages. But for liability it's not relevant. If you're truly worried - as I think you are since you've put the above notice up and taken down the URL print on the picture - I suggest you start moderating (to show some effort) or just shut down this topic. This isn't against XLX or who ever - it's just some advice for your own good.

delia said...

Using the picture this way: ie. to imply that she has plastic is a potentially defamatory use of the picture. And even if it was available in her friendster account, by pasting it here, XLX might be liable.

Just like if you paste a celeb's picture in the papers under the heading "celeb takes drugs", it is a potentially defamatory use of the pic. Even if the pic itself is widely available.

Ok, that's it. I used to agree with XLX about stuff on XX. But this is crap. I'm outta here.

Jason said...

Firstly, the only reason she's buddies with Fiona is because their boyfriends are friends ok? To those of you who says she's seeking fame blah blah blah.

What are you trying to achieve by digging all the dirt on Dawn? So what if she had plastic surgury and does not want to admit it? Do we have to declare everything about ourselves to people, ESPECIALLY the media?

The so called New Paper is only good for sensationalising everything it reports on. How do you know if everything she said was taken into context? Honestly XLX if you're supposedly in the industry, you of all people should know this.

Dawn is such a nice girl, why can't you all just leave her alone? All she did was to put pictures of herself online and blog, and here everyone wants to play detective? "oh look her nose dosent wrinkle", "such a face cant be make by someone who's not plastic LOL".

And no, I'm not one of her "fans" or "admirers".

Somehow i get the feeling that some haters are steering the discussion away from the intended one in their attempt to flame

simplesandra said...

Guys, you can argue all you want, but it's the agency that offered her a contract because of her "extraordinary" looks--and it will be the agency that has the final say whether it's fine or not for her to have undergone plastic surgery. If Dawn is less than truthful when she signs on the dotted line, that--and any subsequent consequences--is between her and her agency.

She hasn't offending people with her blog the way Wendy has. Sure, she's being a hypocrite for not coming clean, but how many vanity bloggers are really truthful in the first place?

Just make your case and move on--why whip up a frenzy when she hardly deserves the sort of hate she's getting right now?

Anonymous said...

From what i see here, this was supposed to be an open topic for discussion has now become an outright war between supporters and haters alike.

Regardless whether you feel that xlx has deliberately set up a clever trap to be sprung by dawn haters and lovers is not of paramount importance. Most important is: have we been taken for a ride?

Online blogs are considered part of constructive and democratic journalism, but it must be remembered that online media is a totally different form as compared to traditional media - there are so many factors that are uncontrollable. Truths normally hidden by those in power can come to light. Unfortunately in similar fashion, lies can be vastly moulded into truths.

How you interpret this topic here is your choice. The only problem is coming to accept it as truth. We often berate people for lying, yet the nature of online presence itself is dubious. Even as i post this message as an anonymous user, my identity and motives are hidden. Do you take my words as truth or fallacy?

Don't simply take in everything you see. There are a good 6 billion people in this world, each individual a unique set of thought processes. It's impossible to believe any 1 opinion, or even a set of similar opinions. So please, don't get worked up over such issues.Unless we experience it ourselves(which in itself bears no guarantee, since people can perceive things differently), many things cannot be defined as truth based on opinion.

Cosmetic surgery or not, claiming natural beauty or not, purposefully flaming people or not, take it with a pinch of salt. Don't believe everything you read or hear aqbout. Especially not in this faceless online world.

I agree that discussions should be on the topic at hand, not to stray towards family members and what not. I don't understand why some of the readers are starting to attack her mother.

--
Yeah, her constant denial leads to.. unless her mom is being fuxked by some angmo, thus her "nautral" look today.

man this is bullshit. xlx, take a good look at yourself in the mirror the next time you use the loo yeah? so much for integrity and professional journalism.

and no, i'm not a dawn yang/yeo/whatever fanboy. in fact, i've never even heard of her until i read your article.

The negotiated reading and oppositional decoding here is really getting out of hand.

Please read this.

Anonymous said...

Aren't you yourself guilty of negotiated reading and oppositional decoding when you read XX's latest post about Dawn not being a blogger? Instead of reading her post objectively, you chose to impose your post feelings and immediately labelled XX as "jealous" and plastered her picture in front of a Star Wars poster for all to see on this site.

Here's what I suggest: if you want to stop people from misinterpreting your views, I suggest you yourself start having some objectivity. The purpose of this site started out to be objective but the constant XX bashing with little or no reason has skewed the site towards a little more than a bashing site.

That is why people are starting to read things into your Dawn postings. True, taken from a step back, you may not have intended any of the comments coming from here, intending only an objective discussion. But your objectivity has been severely hampered by your posts about XX and that is coming back to hit you hard.

Everything you post now on will be subject to negotiated reading and oppositional decoding and that is because, in a large part, you started it first.

Not a ClapBangKiss fan...but i just want to say that it is certainly not nice to do such things..firstly if she has plastic surgety, definitely she wun admit it la...i mean this is common sense wat...u got hear celebrities bragging about going under the knife or wat...secondly, u are trying to create an illusion of being objective..you must ask yourself: when u initially posted the pictures, wat were ur true intentions..what u hope to achieve...thirdly, although u claim time and again it is meant to be objective, some of the things you haf said are clearly very very subjective..i initially read your blog and have been reading time and again because of the XX component..XX's case is starkly different..she shoots off her mouth and claim to be professional blogging, using celebritiy status in all the wrong ways..for Dawn, its not quite the same..imagine someone who didnt really like her looks went to have surgery..spotted my talent scouts...its not her fault wat...she didnt go asking for it...she was thrown into the lime light ...im sure tat most ppl would not give up this chance as well...ok having said so much, i just hope that u have a conscience and stop posting negative things about ppl
(maybe except xx..tats wat im here for..i dun profess to be righteous because i myself have a thing against xx but not for ppl like Dawn
)....

If case you all didnt read this:

Guys, if you DO notice, I am writing on a blog now, not a newspaper. It's a different medium and I AM allowed to include my feelings and opinions and when feelings and opinions are involved, there WILL be subjectivity.

If you noticed, in a real NEWSPAPER report, everything will be from a Third person perspective. On a blog, it's a First person perspective. There's a huge difference writing in a blog and in a newspaper and I KNOW THAT.

A journalist who blogs need not be writing newspaper reports in his/her blog. This is an avenue where I share my thoughts - I already made it clear - I share my views but you guys are the ones who have your own views and your views are most likely going to differ from mine.

The thing is that some are taking the views of others on this site (anyone who comments) as my views. Please get this clear - Those are other people's views. Don't mix them up. My views are different from those who choose to take on negotiated reading and oppositional decoding and that is the point I am making. Simple as that.

xialanxue said...

Okay Guys, I have added a "For the Clueless Ones" section in my sidebar, maybe it will help to read that first.

Anyway I have got work to do right now. Thanks to those who understand.

i think she is trying to look like Amanda Ling from Electrico...SERIOUSLY! I mean, just look at the similarities! (at least Amanda Ling has real talent)

yolanda-SF said...

Look at Joan Van Ark's latest pictures.. damaged though palstic surgery and she does look like your Dawn YangYeo- thin lips, weird eyes and mouth

Anonymous said...

Amanda ling is not even pretty. she just has some character like Faye wong.She looks more like rosalind pho. hey rosalind phos nose looks strange too? No?

jeni said...

This is riddiculous. Just leave the girl alone. Even if its true she had plastics, so what if she's lying ? She's not vying for the president's office. Don't you guys ever tell lies ? Are you never insecure about yourself and are you always moral and righteous ? Is the flaming because you are jealous or just too free ? There is no need to expose or interrogate anyone like that. How does it benefit society ? This issue can be likened to religious freedom. Everyone has a choice and must be respected. I'm just thankful that we get to see a picture of someone who does really look gorgeous. So why complain ?

Dawn, please stop acting as "Timothy"!

Hi there guys, I am the main contributor to http://leethax.blogspot.com. About libel and slander, the threat of litigation is really just a threat no more no less.

I'm no law buff, but in an event of a libel law suit, the plantiff needs to prove the falsehood (it can only be libel IF AND ONLY IF the statement made was false) of that the defamatory claim for the defendent to be proven guilty. That will require medical records to be produced and will completely make the matter transparent to the general public. See http://www.uow.edu.au/arts/sts/bmartin/dissent/documents/defamation.html (I'm based in Australia btw but most Commonwealth laws are similar)

So no in my humble opinion, she would not dare to even think of suing for that will be digging her own grave. Also the legal costs of a defamatory suit is staggering and that will probably bankrupt her family.

Moral of the story: Threats of litigation are tools to intimidate and curb the freedom of speech. Blog on xlx!

the bamboozle said...

I realised there are a LOT of sites referring to Dawn's blog.

Actually, yes she did under a plastic surgery. So that is settled. Now another problem is, she denies vehemently about her plastic surgery. I guess we can leave this problem to her contractor to decide. Why do you guys waste so much time on these useless tongue wars? If Dawn is innocent, she wouldn't need fans helping her to shoot back those people who dissed her.

So... now with her fans who keep helping her and denying that she's in the wrong.. it just goes to show that she is not that innocent afterall.

she look like shes in pain... smiling, but ... so much pain.....

I bet she look like shit close up in real life. Look at that eyes .. the side of the nose bridge.

Ouch. I got an advice to Dawn, She needs to plump up her lips, then she'll be soooo perfect! Then all the young girls can look up to her in envy, and beg their parents to give them plastic surgeries to beautiful like her.

Then the whole world will be filled with plastic faces. Wow, that'll make the world such a better place.

Her parents should be ashamed. VERY ashamed.

"Mom, Dad, you guys are so barfugly asians!! I dont wanna be look like a combination of you fugly faces. I want to look like Im someone elses kids. Someone like Dutch or Thai. Wait, make it both!!Its your fault im ugly! Gimme money! Make me look like someone else's kid!"

dawn yang or yeo whatever lah definitely have a nose job fixed. its so damn bloody obvious. No one is singapore will have angelina jolie's nose without going for plastic surgery lah.

u people are just too much - xlx's front and dawn's front. Imagine talking about other people's flaws when people surrounding us are just dying of starvation or war or suchnots. They are fighting for survival, food and shelter and here we r fighting about plastic surgery. DOnt you think the time spent gossiping, speculating rumours, lying etc. will be better spent helping ppl in Aceh, Lousiana or N Korea etc.? Compared to what these suffering ppl are going thru, we are really shallow and baseless!!

my, she does look weird albeit ugly in that picture. It seems almost devilish.
