In case you didn’t know Wendy (Xiaxue) is pretty fly. She’s like the most famous blogger in Singapore, and she’s even got an immense following internationally. I’ve been reading her blog off and on for about a few weeks now, and I’m already hooked. So, last night here I was just reading Wendy’s blog, and this post catches my eye. Basically, it’s a retaliation of sorts because of some comments made by some of her readers (or anti-fans) about this virtual cat-fight she’s involved in with another blogger. While I don’t think it’s fly that she’s involved in a “who’s the biggest biatch” competition, I do think her so-what attitude is something awesome.
As far as I can gather, the two have been going at it: calling names, starting (or keeping) rumors going, dissing the other about alleged plastic surgeries, and what-not. It’s kinda childish, and altho I haven’t read the other girl’s blog I’m sure it’s taking away from the otherwise awesomeness that their blogs could be without the drama.
What made me post about Wendy and her rival, is Wendy’s “beat you to it” post, in which she openly (and quite amusingly) makes fun of herself. She posts “ugly” pictures from her past that her antis would have a field day with, along with her own degrading comments. Then to top it off, she says, “YEAH I Photoshop my pics! So what!” and proceeds to do before and afters on herself. It’s hilarious!
She talks about her plastic surgery. She talks about her weight gain/loss, and she basically shuts down any insults before they even get a chance to start. Wendy is a boss. And again, I’m not condoning the reason for her display, but you gotta admit, it is pretty damn cool.
Especially her take on her looks, and what other’s may look at as an opportunity to attack her. I think she sums it up best here:
If I don’t care about what people think of my looks, why do I photoshop? Because 1) it is an art that I enjoy doing and 2) it makes ME happy to see prettier photos.
What is appearance? What is image? I cannot be arsed as long as people I love love me… shortness, squatness, lumpiness and all. As for looks, as long as the man I love is attracted to me, that’s all that’s enough. :) Plus,I am satisfied with the way I look! Not 100% mind you, but it’s good enough.
You Go Girl. Maybe we can all use some of Wendy’s sass every now and then. Of course, just as long as we keep the cat-fighting to a minimum. O_<
