Hello people,
Now that I'm far away at New York, I'm sure all of you missed me-- the one and only fabulous Dawn Yang. Teehee.

Remember those days when I was forced to go on the newspaper and apologised for my plagiarism?

======================================================================

In an interview with The New Paper on Wednesday, Ms Yang admitted she had made a mistake.

"I apologise to all my readers. I didn't do this intentionally," she said. --> But I have forgotten to apologise to all the authors!
She said that at the time she posted the entries, she didn't really think citations were necessary.
"It didn't cross my mind that I was doing something wrong," she said.
She promised she would be more careful about citing her sources in future.

But she felt that many of her detractors were not just focusing on the plagiarism, but were instead digging into her personal life.
She said: "Because it's me, because of this spat, they've gone up in arms. You can talk about it, but please don't cross the lines of civility." ---> die die must portray that people are cyber bullying me!

Teehee, for your reference if you can't remember. I must have fooled all of you in a minute thinking I am sincere!

But apparently you guys still remember but I have forgotten all about it! OPPS!! Teehee!

I just taken away the word "literally" and added in the word "gigantic"! I am sooo smart! People will never discover them!

OPPS! Teehee, just one sentence only mah, I didn't know I'll get caught!

Afterall, just like New York is the gigantic city that never sleeps, plagiarism is the habit I'll never quit!

XOXO,
Dawn Wayang away at the big apple!

*** ***
P.S. I also had lied flat out that I had only plagiarised "two or three entries out of like, a hundred entries I have written for STOMP"-- As quoted from Dawn Yang herself on 98.7FM.

Teehee, I certainly have no qualms about lying on the national radio!
But since then I was caught plagiarising from as many as I-don't-know-how-many-entries-because-I don't-know-how-to-count! Teehee! Even the PM Lee speech, if I may remind you! Oh such audacity that I have!

You can find more of my plagurised entries here:

Opps, someone actually print screen all of them!

Also, below is my radio interview I had on 98.7 FM! You can catch me in action for lying flat out!


Lastly, thank you to the anonymous who had tagged on the tagboard with this piece of information!

OMG. Miss plastic sure pisses me off. Claiming that she doesn't know she is doing anything wrong? Claiming that she doesn't know she needs citation?

For someone that goes to University and is back in University. Universities takes plagiarism very seriously. If a student is found to have plagiarized, most of the time they are immediately expelled. Especially high ranking/ good universities.

Even if she "REALLY" doesn't know.
Taking people's work and not giving credit is STEALING. How about all the hardwork, time and effort the ORIGINAL(REAL) author put in? HUH BITCH?

People say "these people are just jealous."

JEALOUS?! my fucking ass. People work hard and you go steal it? No one wants that to happen to them.

I'm a postgrad student from another country. People like here are frown upon and SPAT upon here.

She can't really speak well... She was inarticulate most of the time and Ross has to speak for her. No wonder she needs to plagiarize, BECAUSE SHE IS NOT GOOD AT WORDS!

The way she answered Ross’s questions was like ‘got answered = no answer’. Very shallow interview, no substance out from her plastic mouth.

XX once liked her? She better read up XX’s blog and do some homework before answering to such question, NO ONE EVER LIKED HER BEFORE!!! XX will not befriends with such plastic people (I’m not referring to the outer appearance, it’s the character issue!!) Donkey Yang, dream on lah…

something to share. extracted from her ex's blog.

*
Someone appears in the newspapers and suddenly
The whole world is messaging them
"Hey, remember me from like a billion years ago?
We met for like 1 second
And you didn't so much as fart in my general direction,
But i still think you're super cool!
Can we be friends?"
GAH!
Why are the majority (not all) of Singaporeans
So fucking sad?
Get a fucking life you insipid, miserable lot
Or even better yet
Die, die, die
Check out some of these messages
And you'll know exactly what i mean
(Although jade_ite's comment cracked me up)
Vent over and out

(N.B. This does not include friends, you're all er cool)

I think Ross hit the nail right on the head with her last words "PUBLICITY STUNT"

thats basically how Dawn is taking it...she generally seems really disinterested in the whole thing

She keeps saying "why would I feel so strongly about this" but seh doesn't even look/sound like she cares

XX obviously feels strong about her right to blog about wateva she wants and you can tell that bc XX gets worked up, angry and vengeful...

and Dawn.....

She gives half-hearted answers and posts pics of herself with her undies showing..lol

she is definitely not interest in this anymore

I think she was angry at the beginning...and then got her lawyers to handle it

now she just wants the extra hits on her blog that comes from all this...and it is in her best interest to keep ppl guessing....thats why she still hasn't been concrete about the whole "am I going to really sue or not" issue

THis was prob tough for Ross though...cuz we all know that she and XX are Friends.....so it must have been hard to not show any bias
