HONG QIU TING: She's always changing

Well-known blogger Hong Qiu Ting, better known as Qiu Qiu, literally had a new face this year.

She underwent at least six sponsored cosmetic surgery procedures to improve her appearance.

She also blogged about the process openly, and was criticised by detractors for being insecure and plastic.

But she isn't done with "transforming" just yet.

After all, the 27-year-old is currently six months pregnant, and told TNP that she has gained 20kg so far.

UPS AND DOWNS

Looking back on the year, Qiu Qiu said: "It has been a journey of ups and downs for me in terms of transformation. I looked bad right after my surgery in May, as I was all swollen. Then I looked good again after I recovered."

She added: "A month later, I found out I was pregnant and started gaining weight. I am always changing."

Qiu Qiu thinks that she might clinch the Transformer of the Year title, saying: "Since (local singer) Kelly (Poon) said she did not undergo plastic surgery and (local actor) Jaspers (Lai) lost 10kg, I think I would probably look the most different as compared to before. I guess I have a chance to win."
