Andrea Bites Back *Meow!*

Okay am feeling particularly brave, and slightly politically incorrect at this time of the night (or should I say morning). So here goes.

Its a New Year (still, I feel, since we're in January yet), and I reckon for the past four years since winning Miss Malaysia Universe 2004, I've been pretty polite (read: quiet) regarding criticism/comments/questions thrown my way. So for all of you, who have faithfully been following my blog, lets set the record straight, shall we? ;)

1. I look like a Transvestite.
I actually take this as a compliment - there are ALOT of really HOT transvestites out there. ;) Seriously though, I think this comes about due to my frame, and the fact that sometimes when I have makeup on, my features may tend to look rather strong (masculine almost? I don't know). Anyhoo, it doesn't bother me at all. Infact, I was mistaken as one when I was in Phuket (albeit from the back). Funny story, my girlfriends and I were in a Ladyboy district area in Patong Beach, and I had to use the bathroom... and the bathroom caretaker lady who saw me walk in (so she only saw my back), tried to tell me that ladyboys had to use the Mens. Eeeek! I just went, "harh?!" as I turned around and she apologised when she heard my voice. Good thing I didn't have a sore throat, otherwise I'd really sound like a man! Heh!

2. I got my nose 'fixed'.
Er. NO. I think its cause pre-Marie France days I looked like I had a more bulbous nose....but that's cause I was, well, more bulbous everywhere else too. I lost weight everywhere when I went through the treatments, which includes my face as well.

3. I starve myself now.
Again, NO. Ask anyone who has worked with me, I still eat normally, and healthily - four meals a day (sometimes five): Breakfast, Lunch, Tea(4pm), Dinner (7pm) and sometimes supper. Full, hearty healthy meals with lots of fruit, veggies and protein. :D How do I maintain my figure? 1. everything in moderation, be it exercise, or food. 2. regular trips to Marie France.

4. Err. I can't seem to think of any other issues here. *laughs* - how uncontroversial is that?! Heh. Try also cannot. ;) If anyone has a question or a notion they'd like me to answer, here's your chance! You have one week, just email me the questions, and I'll answer them in my next post. Howzat? :) This should be interesting..

Andrea Fonseka, please refer to the last paragraph of your blog entry dated 22nd May 2007.

Got it?

My question: why did you make a promise that you never intended to keep?

Chris said...

not my intention to stroke your ego, but you really don't look like a trasvestite, you might be mistaken for one from behind purely because of your height, you are tall for an asian chick! And if you did get your nose fixed... it was money well spent!
I reckon that you shouldn't care what everyone else says or thinks. The mentality of people in south east asia is generally very myopic and alot of people may just be jealous of you!

my 2 cents

I remember when I was 18, for like 3 years everywhere I went, the guys would think that I was a transvestite. I was so hurt and offended at the beginning, but after a while I got used to it.

Like what you said, take it as a compliment. Also, some of my friends said that I too have strong features, so when we use make up we do end up looking a little too made up.

In 2005 my friend told me that I should probably let my hair down more often- i used to have my hair tied in a bun most of the time.. and ever since i did just that- no one tells me 'are you a dude?/are you from thailand?' anymore...

=) Hope you are well love

Happy New Year sweets! take care xxx

You're kidding right. Transvestite?

I agree with Chris, none of your features is actually transvestite-like. The only thing that might have made people think that way is just your height. Yup, you ARE tall for an Asian.

I remember visiting your blog 2 years ago and I agree too, you are more 'polite' now compared to before when it comes to handling criticism. Bravo. That's how you know that you have matured through the years.

Whatever you do, do it well. I am sure you are actually a very nice person. God bless and all the best in everything.
