Xiaxue "celebrity blogger" - is this for real?

Postby foofoo124 » Thu, 28 May 2015 3:47 pm

Do millions of people really read this blog? Are Singaporeans really this stupid? The status are incredible: http://www.singledudetravel.com/2015/05 ... y-blogger/

I think Singapore was supposed to be an advanced, wealthy, first world nation. WTF?

Infrastructure wise, it is. Sadly, the majority of natives don't fare so well.

Lol

I think a guy said he was drinking with about off duty cop when in Singapore etc etc

I was tempted to ask if the fellow was a cop or auxiliary police ;)

Or a foreign off duty cop on holiday in Singapore :)

Ps, that the fellow took time to read XX's blog shows the fellows own intelligence

If Kim Kardashian can make money telling people what she ate for breakfast why not XX ?

Jealous ? Oops

^^This

In my experience there are retards everywhere and their natural environment is the internet. Frankly the guy could have found a similar "celebrity blogger" in pretty much any country in the world, swapped out Singapore for the name of that country and got the same response.

Mike, the biggest difference is like the descriptive term for the locals, "Kiasu". It's not that this is the only country that has these types of people, they can be found anywhere, It's the percentage of the people that is higher here than in most other places, hence the term here sticks and become an stereotypical description of most Singaporeans even if the majority aren't like that at all. It's the density (numbers) of them here that makes them stand out compared to other countries.

Somebody's gotta make some money. So let her be. Nothings is new. Meh.
Willing buyer, willing seller.

The law of supply and demand applies here too.
Demand -> Singaporeans, Malaysians and Indonesians with appetite for that genre.
Supply --> Bloggers like Xia Xue.
Ta da!

But apparently more vapid. At least Kim Kardashian launched her own brand of physical goods.*

*I think I just threw up in my mouth.

Talking of bloggers there's an Indonesian blogger in Singapore who became famous to some prominent .. later the story line goes that she engineered it herself to an extent ..

She has become a celebrity endorser .. and that's keeping her bank balance healthy

Yep. Willing seller willing buyer ...

XX tried to have her shining moments but she has reached the critical mass I guess

Equivalent of KK ? You mean from the video Kanye mentioned in his song ????

Don't think XX has a leaked video :p

She is known as a celebrity blogger because nobody knows her in the first place. Reading her blog does not make one smart or stupid.

True, but continuing to read it could be a good indictator of stupidity.

But I can't talk, I read the MailOnline. :lol:
