Infamous blogger Wendy Cheng could be turn-off of the year?

According to the Electric New Paper, the very paper she so proudly boasted about being a columnist for, see where her ego gets her now?

Not surprisingly, she has inspired several hate sites, was abandoned by her sponsors and dropped by The New Paper on Sunday as a columnist as she didn’t meet the editorial standards required of our freelance contributors.

What cracked me up was this part..

Even fellow nominee Steven Lim sounded relieved when he found out she was in the running with him.

For those that don’t know Steven Lim, he’s hilarious, he’s quite a good looking guy, but he’s made a joke of himself, check out his site

Welcome to Singapore[/url]

Welcome to Singapore’s & USA’s Most Handsome Guy homepage!!!!!

And check out what HE said.

‘I really think I might win, leh,’ he said, worriedly.

But he sounded relieved when he found out blogger Wendy Cheng was also nominated.

‘Oh, I think she has a very good chance,’ he said.

They said about our beloved XiaXue[/url]

SHE blatantly solicits freebies and invites to parties on her blog.

She’s ruffled many feathers for making insensitive remarks on her blog on everything from Malaysians to animal lovers, and launched many a vulgarity-laced diatribe against people who so much as rub her the wrong way.

I don’t read her site any more, but well I thought this was too good to miss and I should let you guys know about it 😉

All quotes from The Electric New Paper

What’s more disturbing is at the moment the voting for Best Asian Blog is going on and XiaXue has said that people are only voting for Mr Brown because they don’t like her, not because his blog has any merit.

I think that’s a good cause though, she shouldn’t win, there are far better blogs in Asia, look at mine for instance 😉

    Its very difficult to say something here without hurting Wendy’s feelings … but, it’s about bloody time this happened.

    I wonder how long it took for the newspaper to realise her writing wasn’t up to scratch?

    As for her repeated paranoia … I wish she’d just see a psych already. I have to laugh at her repeated ‘Other people are only popular because everyone hates her’ line. How many times have we heard that from her. Thank goodness I am unpopular, so I won’t ever be accused of being liked just because everyone hates her … and if everyone does hate her like she claims, then why does she expect to get the popular vote for Best Asian Blog award???? It defies logic that she believes everyone hates her but will also vote for her … WHERE IS THE LOGIC!!!

    Do they have a ‘JOKE of the year’ when voting? I think she might win. 🙂

    Hopefully she’ll fare better in her unpopularity than she has a self proclaimed writer.

    “I can’t speak as strongly on XiaXue’s behalf, having only met Wendy once, but she also seems pretty clueless. Even more so than mr brown, in fact. To anyone who has read her blog, it should be obvious that she can barely type. ”

    From Asian Pundit (

    Strictly tongue in cheek perhaps, but still funny. haha

    How come Kenny Sia wasn’t nominated? =(

  6. kimberlycun December 13, 2005 at 1:30 am #

    i’m guessing he’s really not that popular?

  7. minishorts December 13, 2005 at 2:45 am #

    actually the list that got into the finalist’s do not reflect the ones who got nominated. system’s rigged. wendy wasn’t nominated but she’s in the running, i don’t get that site.

    The whole thing is bullshit IMO.

  9. victor December 13, 2005 at 5:26 am #

    Xiaxue’s blog is damn boring. Last time i used to read her blog but now is getting more long-winded and pointless because she always writes about her party life, her social life. BORING………

  10. GhOsT December 13, 2005 at 9:30 am #

    Actually, she shouldnt be given any publicity whether good or bad ones.

    Let her slowly fade off…

  11. KCYL December 13, 2005 at 9:34 am #

    Err, kinda off the topic, but this ‘Best Blogs’ thing? Funny thing is… In the asian blogs category XX gets 10,000 plus, mr. brown gets 8000 plus. In all other categories including best blog, only around 1000-2000 votes maximum for any one blog. (ok … Daily Kos got 5000) It appears the rest of the world doesnt really give two hoots about this ‘Best Blog’ website… Except us asians. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

  12. centerpide December 13, 2005 at 9:41 am #

    perhaps justice is finally being done in the blogosphere? In some ways she brought it on her own self…

  13. kimberlycun December 13, 2005 at 9:52 am #

    hehehe you’re so on, KCYL!

  14. Geraint December 13, 2005 at 10:55 am #

    Totally. War, famine, aids, depression and impotence is going on and all you’re talking about is perceived fame of a few humans who sit in front of an electronic device with the explicit purpose of grabbing the attention of complete strangers.

    Is ‘celebrity’ blogging a predominantly Asian phenomenon?

    I read about this somewhere (can’t really remember) but could it be that we Asians (and expats, of course) support blogs simply because it’s one of the last two forms of free speech in most Asian countries (think Singapore, Malaysia and China – with our heavily censored media and limited freedom of expression).

    The second form of free speech is simply yelling in a crowded public area, of course – and that’s before they send the guys with big sticks and hand cuffs after you.

    Coming back to the topic at hand (what is it, anyway?), Wendy could be considered a victim of the media, looking for something to bitch about. But she certainly didn’t help matters by repeatedly shooting herself in the foot on many different occasions.

    Wait – I thought she quit blogging?

  16. ShaolinTiger December 13, 2005 at 11:43 am #

    Let’s keep it real and check out the ‘Asian’ category.

    Both Singaporean blogs, so let’s just say Singaporeans ok and not brush all Asians with the same dirty stick 😛

    Yeah, most of the world elsewhere don’t seem to give a damn about blogs. what’s the fuss about the best asian blogger? do they get anything outta it besides fame??? some of these blogs have no quality to be hailed as great bloggers. are they judged based on popularity, how well they write or simply because the blogger happens to be really good looking??

  18. Lowzeewee December 13, 2005 at 12:53 pm #

    I am a one who doesn’t enjoy profanity use, especially in a seemingly “reckless” manner which treats the word ‘fuck’ as if it is some punctuation mark. Wendy used it so much in her entries that it got sickening to the stomach at times, when I read her blog. The use of this word has become widespread in recent years to the extent that its “value”(more like effect) has degraded sharply.

    I soon got bored of her blog, but more of her uncanny ability to collapse under criticism, while desperately fighting criticisms and rebuttals with vulgarites and wood defenses.

    I am surprised people are still interested in giving her attention, for I myself feel that she totally deserves the Turn-off of the Year award. Her entries have gone from bad to worse, in terms of the quality and the topic.

    ^^^: of her blog, mainly because*

    Yes, it has become very common to see Fornicate Under Command of the King. No joke either.

    Ah yes, the 2005 Weblog Awards. Says a lot when the Best Asian Blogs nominated feature three Singaporean blogs (what about the biggest online populations like China, Korean, Japan, India etc?) and a total number of er….29614 votes?? Voters apathy or something no one but the most rabid of fans would bother with? =)

    Reminds me of those Best Website awards we webmasters used to get–and mind you, at least some of them were awarded by professionals in the industry, and not just fans with too much time on their hands.
