Sarong Party Girl is a blog I visit regularly, among others. I never knew much about the author but I do enjoy her writing very much. First of I should explain that Sarong Party Girl is “a pejorative term describing local (Singaporean) girls who will only go out with Caucasians. The stereotypical “SPG”, as she is usually abbreviated, is extremely tan, and skimpily-dressed.” So, on her blog she usually writes about relationship issues and some of her sexpliots and sexcapaedes. I find her journal mildly entertaining but as I mentioned before, SPG has a very interesting style of writing that reflects depth of character.
Last week on her blog, SPG put up a picture of herself in the buff. The picture in my opinion is very classy and not of a pornographic nature. She has mentioned on her blog in the past that he has done some fetish modeling. She has also shared the fact that she has engaged in sexual acts that might not suit everyone’s tastes. But those are all her stories so you can check them out on her blog. I have found out today that over this weekend there has been some fiasco in Singapore and the conservative swine have blown this poor girl into the open with an article titled “Net Group Set abuzz by Nude Blogger”, that I believe was also printed in the Star newspaper.
The article does not divulge the actual name of SPG but it does bring to light that she is a 19 year old on route to Uni. Critics have already gone as far as to say “What she has done reflects badly on her parents.”. This poor girl is going to have to face a shit storm now. Singapore is a very judgmental society. A prime example of what I wrote about in my post a few days ago. SPG’s parents did not know about her blog and now chances are a lot of people who were not aware of her “extracurricular” activities will be.
I guess one could say that by putting her self out there she has no right no feel violated by the press and the attention she is bound to receive. And she is receiving attention, as you can see on her site that the pictures are not showing up because her bandwidth has been exhausted. Maybe this is the risk you run of having a blog and you should not be entitled to any privacy as a blogger. But in this age we live in, where people pay hundreds of dollars to spew their thoughts out to physiatrists, therapists, and spiritual healers, some people have found a way to purge them selves and maintain sanity by throwing their thoughts up on a blog. Do they not have the right to remain anonymous if they so wish to be? I mean SPG does not even leave a comment space on her blog so she obviously does not care for criticism or our opinions; almost 3,000 people still visit her site. Some things she writes may shock us and other things may even enlighten us. But now society will paint a scarlet letter on her and people will be free to point their fingers and cast judgment upon her. Arguments will ensue deliberating weather this is defined as porno or art.
I have included 2 pictures from her web site below and you can decide for yourself. And whatever people may say about SPG, I will still contest that she is an extremely bright and clever person with a rare talent. I hope she makes it out of this unscathed. Society can be very wicked as we all know. Recently a few of the blog’s I read have come close to extinction due to society and their verdicts but thankfully they have all bounced back even under the harshest of criticism. I hope SPG is not forced to fold her hand and bow out. It is blog’s like hers that got me confident and motivated enough to write in the first place.
