Fake or Real?

In this world we are living today, in this digital era that has taken us by storm, it is hard to tell real from fakes and vice versa. Not everything we read in the media is real. They say a picture speaks a thousand words but these days with picture manipulation so easily done, we can hardly trust the thousand words that a picture tells..

I’ve not posted pictures of myself for quite some time now don’t you think? Today is your lucky day as here I am, posting not one, but TWO pictures of myself (of different sizes).

picture manipulation

You’ve not seen me for some time now, can you tell, which picture is the REAL me? 

This is what happens when the Submerryn gets really, really BORED! :P

P/S: The answer is NEITHER. The above picture is FAKE. Both of them.. one been fatten up, the other been slimmed down..  FAKE. Don’t judge a picture by its.. urm.. PICTURE! Have a nice weekend peeps! :D

    • //

    Fake? Nobody cares as long as the result is good! In the realistic word, if you posted up the right (read, right) photo on social networks, everybody will come and befriend with you :)

    But it’s best not to judge a picture by its picture :p

    • //


      Yeah lor. That’s exactly the reason why ppl go LIKING my FB page! hahahaha…

  • //

    haha both are fake photos. Nowadays really hard to judge even with our own eyes, even ugly duckling can be beautiful swan, thanks for the makeup.

  • //
