Plastic Surgery Barbie.

(I know that the subject of plastic surgery has been blogged to death but i have to put my 2 cents worth)

This entry has been inspired by this video clip I saw recently on youtube:

How far would a woman go for beauty? I've noticed that there has been a boom in popularity for plastic surgery in Asia,or maybe i am just noticing it. I've seen pictures of a lot of female Asian stars and they all look eerily the same! They thrive for the European face, and that frightens me a bit. I have nightmares of Asia with a generic robotic face that doesn't have any expression at all. Most Asians (that I've noticed) wanted nose jobs because they think their nose it too wide. My nose is somewhat wide, but I've learned to like it! PLUS guys actually like the wide, not so narrow nose on girls anyways! i have two pieces of evidence FROM European men! I saw the Xiaxue video clip where she gets a nose job and she says " my boyfriend says that a flat nose looks good on girls because it is more feminine" anyone who knows Xiaxue knows her BF is white. Second piece is from my very own Bf that tells me everyday that my nose is beautiful. Now all this talking about plastic surgery is making me think of the queen of all plastic surgery, the self proclaimed "Barbie" ( no not talking about Dawn Yang! HAHA)
