Photoshop Challenge

WAH LAO. Did you see what Xiaxue did to my picture or not?

She took this ugly photo of mine (from back in June I think), did some Photoshopping work THEN transformed it into this.

Who. The. Heow. Is. THAT!?
Got some people even say I look like Korean actor, after Photoshop.
It is an example of “a compliment that’s not a compliment.” It is the equivalent of Vanessa Hudgens saying she’ll marry me, if my bank balance has six more zeroes behind it and hell freezes over. Looks like these can only exist on computer graphics.
What’s more, while everyone else had one of their pics Photoshopped, I was treated to TWO!
From this.

To this!

Bugger, pick randomly also cannot pick until two right. Must mean I’m really ugly lah.

Don’t you think it looks like some dodgy before and after pic they use to sell you some bogus overpriced weight loss pills?
When I got your ass served on a plate like that, I gotta respond. But of course, Xiaxue is not the only one who knows how to Photoshop. I also know how to use Photoshop to enhance HER photos!
I ain’t gonna manipulate Wendy’s photos because frankly she does a better job at it herself. Instead, I’m gonna victimize the one thing she loves most.
Her hamster!


I made her smile!
What’s that you say? It’s not that difficult to Photoshop ‘cos it’s just a hamster?
Fine, let’ try something more difficult shall we! Take Singapore’s biggest celebrity poster boy as an example.

No, not Phua Chu Kang!
The OTHER poster boy.
Can you guess who this is?


It is Mas Selamat!

Work done: slimming, skin-lightening, beard-trimming, eye white-brightening, undereye puff elimination, forehead reduction, added dimples for him and I made him smile.
Doesn’t look like that much of a wanted terrorist now does he! He can escape to Hollywood and become like Orlando Bloom.
Xiaxue’s boldest move, however, was when she photoshopped Barack Obama from this.


Now, that’s asking for trouble. The guy is the future President of the United States and is well-loved by a lot of people. Although Xiaxue has Photoshopped to make him look younger, better and more similar to Darlie toothpaste, I reckon she’s gonna upset a lot of sensitive Americans out there.
I mean, imagine if some American were to take the photo of the founding father of modern Singapore, Lee Kwan Yew.

And then PHOTOSHOP him to make him look 30 years younger.

Surely that’s gonna upset a lot of people right!

ESPN Star shortlisted their Champion of Champions of 2008, the sportsperson who’s made the biggest impact in 2008. In amongst the heavyweights like Tiger Woods, Lewis Hamilton and Michael Phelps stands the sole young female athlete – Nicol David.
Not bad for a Malaysian, eh?

    note the sentence : AT A GLANCE !

  4. LMAO! Honestly, great touch with MM Lee.
    You’re looking better now lah, lol. The unfortunate thing is, xiaxue’s post made us want to either:
    1) Slim down and look exactly like the photoshopped version,
    2) brush up on our Photoshop skills.
    Oh anyway, have fun preparing for your next marathon! πŸ™‚

  5. hehs maybe she photoshopped ur pic 2x bcos she wants loves looking at you? =D hehs… u shud do some photoshop tutorials!

  6. your rebuttal towards her entry is very bad and there is plenty of redundancy in this entry. purely chalking on her traffic again

  7. THe last picture is Lee Kuan Yew’s son… :p
    You look so good after modification :p
    Can you do one for me? I meant my picture … hahaha

  8. wow! just shows that you’re actually quite good looking!!
    just need to slim down and re-define that face and body!
    With all your marathon running… no problem!
    DO IT MAN!!

  10. lulz at the smiling hamster. y not make it grin? LOL!!!
    as always, your finishing touch is superb~!
    all the best in the next marathon kenny, but the most, gl and hf~!

  11. cheeserland did this before ~ ‘idollize yourself’
    in a creative and fun way.
    xiaxue is making enemies…
    got to give her props for having the guts to tell the world who she dislike (v obvious la, she hates some of them, example steven lim)…

  12. in the second photoshop picture, while you shrink in size, the
    dude’s feet behind you grew larger! xiaxue should have watched out for this. attention to detail people!

  13. actually you are good-looking. The prove is xiaxue don’t change your face a lot (compare to the others except Obama). Basically she just trim your fat and fix your teeth. But I don’t think your vampire teeth is ugly, I think they’re cute and make you look stand out πŸ˜€

  14. LOL ! I love this post πŸ˜€ hilarious and lighthearted and you know how to put everything in a funny but not mean way!
    love the smiling hamster

  15. Lol.. Kenny, probably if u loose some weight, straightened ur teeth and wore brown coloured contact lenses u’d prove xiaxue’s photoshop job wrong haha

  16. Hell Kenny won’t blogging here if he got that look + body. He’s gonna party every morning and night, forgetting his blog.
    Yet, very creative way for Xiaxue to sarcastically announce her disliked people.

  17. hahahah good one kenny!
    i like the last one.. mr.lee bwahahahah U should have photoshop both of them.. hehe and be prepared to be bombarded by the s’poreans..

  18. u shud motivte urself to be like da photoshop liao de kenny! den more n MORE babes will come after u! lol…
    da hamster is sooo freakin cute! reminds me of the movie alvin&the chipmunks! XD

  19. I’m Singaporean, and that’s just disrespectful. I happen to have a lot of respect for both my prime ministers. Please do not let your passive aggressiveness of being photo shopped blind your judgment of what’s humor and what’s crossing the line.

  20. You got lousy photoshop skills compare to Xiaxue. I think the LKY pic before and after do not have any similarity anymore. Totally different person.
    Mas Selamat do not look alot better oso. Just another ugly malay looking guy.

  21. actually your face still look the same lor, it’s just telling you to lose weight :X not like the others, where she photoshop their noses smaller, their eyes bigger etc etc..

  22. this is funny..’transformers’ must be quite good at photoshop..i’m still not good in ‘transforming’ a photo of a person..manipulation would be a better word..haha

  23. Hey Kenny,
    Have you considered fixing up your teeth for real? Put on some braces and you’ll be able to lose half your size at the same time, kill 2 birds with 1 stone. How to lose weight? Cos you absolutely can’t eat except for mush!
    These days, braces can even be hidden behind your teeth rather than in front. So not to worry, you can still charm people with your dazzling smile πŸ˜€

  24. I’d support you rather than xiaxue. haha what i like abt you is that you’re funny and blogs in a way to prevent anyone getting insulted πŸ˜€ rock on.

  25. Wow!
    The photoshop skill indeed is so powerful!
    Just can’t believe it.
    Btway, good for you Kenny.
    You can use this as your profile photo for a change.

  26. hmm. i think you suck. it’s kind of pathetic the way you follow every single one of xiaxue’s entries and YOU USE HER ENTRIES FOR YOUR OWN ENTRIES. pathetic.
    [KS: huh? follow every single one of her entries? whose blog u reading miss?! *confused*]

  27. wow, some sourAss wrote ‘ppl who visit this “pathetic” blog must be pathetic themselves’…
    is that a joke or what?! 0___0!!!

  28. Looking from the bright side, at least you have a handsome frame, perhaps just need more marathon to carve it out.

  29. the second picture XiaXue photoshopped Kenny..
    the first thing i saw was the large amount of hairs present on kennys arms ! haha second thing was the contrast

  30. This is one of the best entry i’ve read so far. Super funny. Super witty.
    I could not stop laughing at the hamsters. and the old Lee and young Lee picutes.

  31. Kenny I’d prefer to f**k u in any of your before pics rather than your photoshopped ones πŸ˜‰ there’s something about a man with meat

  32. Kenny I’d prefer to f**k u in any of your before pics rather than your photoshopped ones πŸ˜‰ there’s something about a man with meat

  43. lols.. hahah nice one… lols.. btw… u look better when ur skinny.. ahaha … photoshop really does the trick.. haha

  44. While he’s in there, the husband tells his wife: “Listen, this guy’s an escaped convict, look at his clothes! He probably spent lots of time in jail and hasn’t seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck.” If he wants s*x, don’t resist, don’t complain, do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is probably very dangerous. If he gets angry, he’ll k*ll us. Be strong, honey. I love you.”

  45. To think just a little while ago Photoshop was competing against programs like Jasc Paintshop Pro. Adobe just left them in their dust with all the great technology they conceive. It doesn’t just end at Photoshop either.. their entire list of applications is a masterpiece imo.
