Ex-beauty queen Ris Low denies being woman in 'intimate' bedroom pictures
by Tan Kee Yun

SINGAPORE - Dethroned local beauty queen Ris Low is in the news for controversial reasons again.

The 23-year-old, who first made headlines in 2009 for her famous "boomz" catchphrase and credit-card fraud conviction, is embroiled in a bedroom photo scandal of sorts.

Earlier this week, two photos showing a woman and a bespectacled man in intimate poses were uploaded on Low's Facebook wall by local businessman Fred Chua, 37, who had tagged Low in the pictures and written "ris low & me" as captions.

Both photographs were self-taken, and show the duo from their bare shoulders up with their faces pressed close together.

When The New Paper quizzed Low about the photos and her relationship with Mr Chua on Wednesday, she firmly denied being the woman in question.

"It's not me, she doesn't look like me at all, it's an impostor," she said adamantly.

"I really pity the girl, I wonder how she feels.

"There are so many pictures (of women) on the Internet, especially on China websites, that look like me. I have a common face."

She also said she did not feel a need to take the pictures off her Facebook wall as she "doesn't understand what's the big hoo-ha over these pictures".

Low, who is working at her parents' renovation company, insisted she does not know Mr Chua well.

She's better acquainted with Mr Chua's 34-year-old brother, who she got to know when she was 17, Low said.

"My only communication with (Mr Chua) is via Facebook messaging," she said, adding that they are Facebook friends because she is "not very careful" when it comes to adding online acquaintances.

Quote: "His brother owes me $4,000 from when we were 18 and I've sent him (Mr Chua) two messages to get his brother to return the money as soon as possible."

rish low getting more plump.
she needs to cut down her meals to perhaps just breakfast, and tea break only.

or perhaps she can have the usual meals but exercise much more heavily.
