Categories: East Asia, Malaysia, Singapore

Overloaded by the hype and attention loaded on Singapore blogger-beauty Dawn Yang, Malaysia's Kenny Sia, following others [1], inquires whether she had a little something done to her eyes [2]. Last week, Xialanxue wrote an open letter asking her to clarify whether she had plastic surgery [3]. On her blog, Yang replies [4] to [5] her detractors, threatening to leave blogging behind and be just a beauty instead: “I'm sorry but I may or may not continue to post on this site… you could say I've become rather weary of the frightful nature of fellow humans online.” Meanwhile, Project Petaling Street Blog has some doubts about sites posting pretty bloggers to generate income: “web pimping [6].”
