Chompoo is famous actress, singer, model.. (comedian?) of Thai, Lao & British descent. She has a warm, charismatic personality & tons of talent, her fashion sense however, is an area where she does not excel.

    Yes, it's a fashion shoot, but you can always say "NO" when someone tries to stick a naked Barbie on ur head.

Born in Montreal, Canada, Danconia was named after another “Sean”-Connery—by his mother, an intrepid James Bond fan. This early “Bondian” bullet would fire itself throughout his life and creative pursuits.

FEMM - Fxxk Boyz Get Money

   It's not that good, but it sure is pretty. Like the seductive plastic molded sushi platters displayed in Japanese restaurant windows, FEMM are all spectacle w/ zero substance & it seems like they planned it that way.
   It's "their" message to the world; be an empty, vacuous object w/ no memory of the past or concept of the future. "Kcuf boyz get $$$".

VID: Asians Making Fun of whitey

Jenny Yang: If AZNs said the stuff whitey says
   5.5 mil views & counting, 70K likes, 11K comments in less then 2 months. It's safe to say this video has gone Viral w/ a capital Oh My Buddha!

   If U enjoy 'white whine' (TM) check out the comments section. I fortunately, have become allergic to 'white whine'. It was the result of living in Asia for the past 15 years & hearing the mumbles, moans, & mewls of whitey experiencing discrimination for the first time. I now must avoid whitey at all cost because hearing about FWP (Fapping White Problems) gives me a severe rash & migraines.

YM's Fav YT comment:
"White tears... my favorite drink!"
- Chelsy Thenigrette
   & yes, I've experienced most of these multiple times, especially the:
W: But where R U REALLY from?
YM: Canada.
W: Ok, but where was your father born?
YM: Canada ..& my grandfather was born here too.
W: Wow, ur English is really good.

   Green is a singer, model & actress in Thailand. These are some of the intricate outfits from her musical performances.
   My fav Green Lakorn  is Maya See Mook with Vee Veraparb Suparbpaiboon (Ch.7 2013). She plays Kaimook a Thai girl working as a stunt double for a TV drama. She ends up becoming the lead actress in a drama set in Korea & ends up connecting w/ her long lost mother, Sinitha Boonyasak as JinJoo. If you noticed that last name, yes that is 'Ploy' Chermarn's older sister.
