  1. Yes Angelababy and Janice Man did do surgery to enhance appearances. But ofcourse, i prefer thick make up over plastic faces 😀

  2. I can actually read Chinese, but I can’t really read what it says in the article because the texts are too small, and when I zoom in on the scan the words become blurry.

    Anyway, did you do an interview with the magazine or something? I also live in Canada as well but in Toronto. =)

    I do see in the head title that they refer you as the “makeup blog queen” and that you “踢爆” a lot of models secrets to become pretty. lol!

  3. I just saw the article in the Toronto version of Ming Pao Saturday weekly mag (Jan 3, 2009 issue)! However, I can’t really read it and my mom doesn’t want to help me read it :(

  4. Hey! Congratulations! Really good job, I just wish I could read it. Haha I think I’ll print it out and bring it to a friend to translate! =]

  5. Thanks ladies – you are the BEST!!!! =)

    Lena, yes I did a short interview with Ming Pao. They also took some of my past entries and translated them into Chinese for the article.

    If you guys are interested in reading the article, I will try to upload the pdf format onto the server so you can download it.

  6. This article was also published in Toronto’s Mingpao newspaper!
    Great Job!! Your blog has so many helpful advice :)
