Woman gets $40k facelift, proposes to 13th boyfriend


After a dozen failed relationships and love affairs, a 34-year-old single lady in Taiwan put her hands up and caved in - she spent almost a million Taiwanese dollars (over S$40,000) for plastic surgery to "fix" her face and her body.

She got a nose job, an eyelift, her chin done, Botox injected into her forehead, and liposuction to lose almost 10kg-she now weighs in at 66kg.

Lo and behold, her makeover proved to be her good luck charm as her 13th boyfriend turned out to be Mr Right.

Having found her man, she wasted no time in putting a ring on it, proposing to him in public at a theme park.

The couple befriended each other through an online gaming website and began dating last year in April. It wasn't long after their email correspondence began that she admitted she had fallen for him.

Three months later, they were living together. "I know he's the one," said "Mao Bai", using her online nickname, and confessing that their burgeoning romance gave her the confidence to alter her appearance.

Following her surgery, she set the stage to pop the big question to her 29-year-old lover, known by his nickname "Zha Ke", at the Eda Theme Park in Kaohsiung city.

Dressed as the succubus character from World Of Warcraft, the cyber game that they're both addicted to, Mao Bai descended into the park on a swing from the top of a huge wooden statue of a horse.

She then gave Zha Ke a bouquet of roses and an engagement ring made with her hair. Stunned by her performance, he was gobsmacked for a few seconds before blurting out "I do!" and then he dropped to his knees and said, "Thank you for marrying me!"

The happy couple plan to tie the knot in August 2013.
