New Avatar, New Look!

I’ve had just returned from a short trip to KL a couple of days back. I made some slight updates and changes to the webpages on my Personal Homepage. The “About Me” page had underwent the most changes. πŸ™‚ Go check it out here.

If you’ve been visiting my blog before this, I’m sure you notice the header’s avatar had changed.

Formerly, it was:

Old Avatar

Now it’s:

New Look!

Cool huh? πŸ˜‰ I never looked this good in cartoon before.

Credits to Hazel for the new avatar – saved me no more than thirty seven bucks!

I Have The Looks of 8 Famous People

Would it be surprising if I told you that I have the looks of 8 famous people – all in one face? Well, it certainly was for me!

Check out the picture below to learn why this is the case:

After running through a quick and fun simulation at MyHeritage.com to find out which famous people I look like, my uploaded photo was scanned and it produced the above results.

The higher my resemblance in facial features to a famous person, the higher the percentage. Here’s what I think:

Alyson Hannigan (73%) – Uhm… who is this?

Takashi Sorimachi (73%) – I didn’t know I look Japanese. Again, I have no idea who this is.

Fujiki Naohito (72%) – I am convinced that I would have probably passed off as a celebrity in Japan. But then again, who is this?

Gong Li (71%) – Woo hoo! I’ve got the looks of Gong Li! πŸ™‚ This is the first famous person in the list that I recognize, though.

Jena Malone (71%) – Now I know why my mom thinks that I don’t look Chinese (even though I am one).

Megumi Hayashibara (68%) – Why do I have a feeling that I was born in the right time but wrong place? Seriously, I might have just passed off as an Idol or a Celeb… if I were born in Japan.

Audrey Tautou (66%) – Okay, either I DON’T look Chinese OR there are little or no famous Chinese people. πŸ˜›

Mark Bautista (66%) – Seriously, is this REALLY a list of famous people? The only famous figure I recognize of the 8 is Gong Li. Unless of course, it’s because I rarely watch TV.

While it’s fun to know I have the looks of 8 (presumably) famous people (ego booster!), too bad I don’t have the fame of these 8 people combined! πŸ˜‰

Check Out My Caricature

A few days ago, I visited an art website and purchased a caricature to resemble me. πŸ™‚

I made my payment online and submitted my (not so good) photo. I got my caricature done within 24 hours or so.

Since the artist drew the caricature to resemble me in the photo – and my eyes were almost closed when I snapped an instant photo at the photoshop (on several tries) – this is how the caricature turned out:

Edmund Loh

Did I mention that it was one of those bad hair days, too? 😐 Fortunately, I’m better looking in real-life. πŸ™‚

Still, it was a cute artwork and I would definitely be using it in some of my mini sites and maybe E-Covers, where suitable. πŸ˜‰ It’s already displayed on my MSN Messenger as my avatar.

You might want to get your own, too. I got mine at http://www.draw-me.com/ for only thirty seven bucks.
