Felixia Yeap is first Malaysian Playboy Bunny!


So it looks like new Malaysian Playboy Bunny, Felixia Yeap will not be stripping for photography after all. Damn it! Why not?!!! I thought "Malaysia Boleh". Oh well, but that doesn't prevent us from admiring these 5 hot pics of her.





Felixia, I know you already said you are not going to do nudity but I seriously think you should reconsider. LOL!

How come my kindergarten teachers don't look like her?

Once you're done ogling at her pics, go and say hi to Felixia on Facebook and give her some love. Who knows, if you're lucky, she will teach you some ABCs and 123s. Ahem.

8 photos that show Planking is alive and well in Singapore


The internet phenomenon of planking is the act of lying face down with arms to the sides of the body, in unusual public spaces and photographing it. It originally became popular in Australia and has since become a global trend, even right here in Singapore as you can tell from these pictures of awesome Singaporeans taking part in planking.





According to planking rules, you must always lay face down, ensuring your face remains expressionless for the duration of the plank. Your legs must remain straight, and together with toes pointed. Your arms must be placed by your side, held straight and fingers pointed.




Pictures taken from Planking Singapore Facebook page.
