Miss Singapore World Saga: I (Claire Lee) am Innocent!!

  I have been framed!! Again!! What I learnt from the pageant? It doesn’t pay to be kind?? But I shall not let this take me down, I will still be the honest and sincere person I have always been.. Except that its time to wake up and learn to judge people dear.. Apparently being honest and sincere was my downfall for the entire pageant.. Everything happened because I was too trusting.. The only reason why I bother to write this is to let everyone in my life who cared about me know the truth from what has been pointed at me..

1. I did fall down and I have history of back injury:

 receipt 001

This is the receipt which I saw the doctor on Wednesday.. Dr Loo cured me in 2007 and here I have, the receipt from 2007.. I have receipt from 2 years ago.. Yes.. I keep receipts.. In dated order..

receipt 002 receipt 003

Dr Loo only sees patients on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.. So I saw her on Wednesday since I fell on Monday.. I guess I can only blame my clumsiness and coincidence..  But I went for X-ray on Thursday and since the X-ray would be mailed to Dr Loo, I can only see her tomorrow, which is Monday..

With history in back problems, I can’t guarantee my health conditions, so it is only right that I told the press the truth.. Its alright now, I dun feel much pain anymore, especially after Dr Loo has helped me straightened my spine.. Hopefully she allows me to start exercising tml.. Or else I will turn into a fat pig after stopping my exercise for so long..

Ris claimed it wasn’t serious.. I hope it isn’t serious too… Cuz when it was serious, I would even cry from the pain.. But recording my conversation with her was something I did not know.. But I know I didn’t want to let her worry since I still treated her as a friend.. And since I felt better, I can’t be going,” Oh!! I’m on a wheel chair and I’m in pain!!” right?

2. I did not tell the media about the credit card case..

Since I did not do it, I have no evidence to show I didn’t do it..  But the only evidence I have is the straits times reporter telling me that her colleague got the tip off from someone else and the sponsor informing about the news:

  195196  

On the left was my conversation with the straits times reporter yesterday and it says how they got hold of the story and on the right shows the date and time when I first knew the story, from someone I knew, who sms-ed about the story.. I probably knew about the story later than most people who has been following the entire saga… But what I said is in green for people who do use the iphone..

The nonsense about me crying and her telling me her probation story is utter rubbish.. The only thing she has done is really encourage me and gave me support which I have been telling the press about.. You can watch my razortv below:

Some people think I am pretentious and faking to be nice.. But seriously, I have people who also laughed and me for trying to speak up for her.. But I felt someone should really speak up for her.. I don’t exactly speak the best English, but I’ll try to improve on it.. This was filmed on a Thursday and I called her on Friday to see if she was alright and to offer her help on an issue which I do not wish to mention.

But in the end I had my conversation recorded and I have no idea why she would tell the press I faked my injury.. Maybe cuz I told her I had no injury since it was Friday when I called her, and I fell on Monday.. And neither do I understand what she meant by she wanted people to know I am not as ‘pure’ as I seem.. Huh? What pure? Was I trying to look pure?

Oh well, basically this is all the evidence and truth to all the false accusations pointed at me. I really hope this can clear my name..

Hi Claire,
I read the articles on the matter and I support you. I have seen your interview on Razor and I think you are a down to earth person who would be really suitable to represent Singapore. I dont know why she was selected in the first place...

I believe that you did not reveal the matter to the press and even if you did, there is nothing wrong. When one committs a crime (regardless of whether she was put on probation or not) then she must expect repercussions. It is a matter of public knowledge. Whoever did so saved Singapore a lot of embarrassment..imagine if RL's background was only discovered when she went to the pageant.

Anyway, what I suggest is that you just leave the whole thing alone. Look beyond that..you are a sweet girl with a great future...dont get involved with all these petty nonsense caused by someone who just cannot take reponsibility for her own actions and is looking for someone/anyone to blame. She is pitiful in her delusions and needs to grow up

Thank you very much.. I know.. I was trying to be nice to reporters and gave them only true accounts initially.. And I only took the razortv because the interviewer is my AJ senior.. So I dun wanna put her in a difficult position..

It doesn't matter what she says anymore.. i just have to prove myself innocent.. that's all.. I wun take revenge nor will I tell on her.. Except that her recording gave herself away and it resulted in the wanbao finding out about her money thingy.. but it seemed like I did was telling on her... but I din..

Nonetheless, I am washing my hands of the entire issue.. Not gonna answer media calls anymore.. Too tiring on my family..

Anyway, thanks for the encouragement.. If I look bad, I can only blame myself for entertaining the press.. I think I need a vacation..

Amilia Gani said...

Claire, U go girl...many people believe that you are just a pawn in this Ris/ERM muddle. So much sillyness from Ris. Keep your cool & sometimes leaving things as it is & being silent is better. The truth of the matter will come out soon.

David said...

I like what you are doing now. revenge is meaningless. you have my support. :)

Cheese, Cake, Cupcake, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Claire, Clementine, Cookies and Cream said...

Ng Yi-Sheng,
Thanks for the support.. I was really very passionate about representing for Singapore.. But after all that has happened, I have been accused for something I didn't do.. And Even when I showed true care and concern and tried to be a good friend to Ris, she turned around and bit me and tried to make me look bad in public.. All I can say is that I am very touched by all the care and support everyone has given me.. Thanks alot.. Ler's hope the chosen one will do us proud alright?

Cheese, Cake, Cupcake, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Claire, Clementine, Cookies and Cream said...

Evan,

Yes gal! I wanna go back to normal peaceful life, baking with you, having food outings.. No more entertaining of press.. No more set ups and no more facing accusations!!

Cheese, Cake, Cupcake, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Claire, Clementine, Cookies and Cream said...

Dear Amilia,

Thanks! I know the media has been making use of this story to blow up and sell more papers.. but neither do I want the publicity.. Initially, I entertained the press because I felt they were doing their job, and plus they couldn't stop calling me.. They made it impossible to even send an sms to my friend! I had to put my phone on flight mode, write the message, den switch off the flight mode, before I could send me sms.. It hink they have some special, call till they answer function in their phone.. HAha..

I entertained the RazorTV because the interviewer was my AJ basketball senior.. And lastly, I just had to give evidence for what Ris has tride to accuse me off.. But that is pretty much it.. No more press for me unless there is another accusation coming..

Cheese, Cake, Cupcake, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Claire, Clementine, Cookies and Cream said...

Dear David,

Thank you very much.. I know, I see no point in revenge.. If I take revenge, den she will take revenge, and there will be no end to this except for us being free labour to the media.. So somebody has to stop, and it will be me.. I can defend myself, but I wun leak any dirty secrets..

Except that Ris played the recording to the press which indicated the purpose of my call, and it was supposed to be her secret.. But we'll wait and see what the press wants to do with that piece of news.. :)

To be honest I'd rather you represent Singapore than that liar fraudster Ris Low.

zaki said...

claire...

the whole singapore is entirely behind you and you should know dat. i truly and wholly agree that about one anonymous said:

"Whoever did so saved Singapore a lot of embarrassment..imagine if RL's background was only discovered when she went to the pageant."

Ris Low should pay for all the repercussions for her dishonest act. She would bring Singapore's name a total disgrace if her act was left uncaught if she really made it to Africa.

Guy nursing a back injury here says perhaps you should kick Ris Low in the back and crack her spine to make her taste how delibitating a back (or even spine) injury is.

Anonymous said...

Hi Claire,
The whole world knows what kind of person Ris Low is, so don't worry about it to much and let the matter rest. Additional information for everyone else here and maybe you clarie,

1st) her credit card fraud case is more serious than what the media reported. The media reported she spent 2.5K but in actual fact she spent in access of 8K on the cards she stolen.

2nd) Her police statement said she stole because she felt it was fun and thrilling for not getting caught while stealing.

3rd) She was only diagnosed with bipolar Disorder after she got caught, and for people who read the condition up, it is a very difficult condition to diagnose and only through other people's account's of the affected person's condition that it was then diagnosed. To cut things short, her so called disorder is to make her credit card fraud conviction less criminal.

4th) Someone who have bipolar would never had compete in a beauty pageant. read in up in Wiki and you will know. and Plus my friend is a psychiatrist and he told me she is LYING.

5th) Telling everyone that claire(you) was the caused for her downfall, even recording your conversations but thank goodness it backfired spectacularly.

6th) LATEST news, she was ordered to retake her MDIS exam because notes was found in her pencil case.

http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking%2BNews/Singapore/Story/STIStory_438756.html

Which sums up everything really.

Hi Claire,

We have to be a little more forgiving to Ris. She has gone thru a lot of pain and is driven to a corner. What you did can be considered as gracious. She had low IQ and has a severe problem and need further management for her illness before it goes out of hand. She is a serial offender and cannot understand what she did was totally unacceptable. She has supporters too but they are doing more harm to her than good. Even if you had reveal her fraudulent escapade you are not wrong and in fact it is required by law for you to do so. Do not pursue the other charges she made against you, she has had enough already. Stand firm to claim your position to represent Singapore, you are the runner-up. If someone else is chosen would be an insult to you.There must be an adequate compensation if it happens. Singapore is a just society.

Suppose you know that someone has committed a crime. Not calling the police is a crime. So, I do not know what the issue is.

shoplifter: the security guard backstab me ahh, i want my justice. I'll be back.

Actually I really can't wait for her to be back. As Obama said, once you put stupid things on the Internet, they'll never go away.

Bret said...

Hi Claire,

Actually there's no need to post anything on your blog to clarify the matter. I believe u! It's a pity u will not be representing us on the world stage cos u exude the right qualities and most importantly, the right personality to deserve the crown.

I'm sure u will have a bright future ahead of u. U will be a shining star in your own right. Stay strong and take care of your back. Remember, we'll support u all the way, gal! I'm very sure the general public is behind u too. So no worries, your conscience is clear. : )

Hi Claire,

Just be yourself and don't let all this crap change you. If anything, become wiser! Honesty is something that is lacking in some people. If you are honest, it will show. Your friends will know and God knows. I wouldn't loose sleep over such rubbish. There is more to life than this.

Chloe Ask said...

Hey, Claire, hope your back injury is not too serious. I wouldn't worry too much about clown who's making a bigger fool of herself everyday. Best thing to do is to ignore her: if you hang around shit, the smell clings to you. BTW, what mobile phone are you using? The sms display looks real cool! Who knows, the vendor might sponsor you to plug their phone, and you can make some money out of this crap!!

Hi Claire
I think you should seriously consider representing Singapore in the pageant. Take it as an experience in life - it doesn't matter what your position will be in the contest in Africa. You have come so far in this contest. Be natural & enjoy the 'break' from your work. Just look at those past contestants - time flies & most would say that they have no regrets in entering the Singapore pageants & represented Singapore. Do not bother about what other said about you. You have proofed to be a sincere & down to earth person. Wish you the best in your endeavours. Cheers.

Hi Claire

Just ignore all the negative stuff out there.

As far as I am concerned, Ms Low can continue to put her foot in her mouth. She should just do a Taufik Batisah ie. be graceful about her mistakes and JUST APOLOGISE.

People will be willing to forgive (although asking people to forget is stretching it a little)if she apologises and doesn't try to fudge the truth/circumvent the situation.

Just take good care of your health!

And Ris ... if you're reading all this. I want to say to you : ENOUGH ALREADY. Just shut up and retake your exams. Make sure you take your revision notes out of your pencil case next time.

Hello Claire , i dont know you from eve. But heres my take on things. Firstly, if i may give some common sense advice... stuff happens so dont fret over them.
I have my own take on Ris low but they are so negative i shall reserve them for another time.
Lastly i hope you do not use the word Like too many times in a sentence . Try stringing a complete sentence without the use of "like". salesmlot

Isidore said...

Sorry you had to be negatively implicated. Take heart that following your good intentions and being a good person will lead to a life that's more meaningful and less problematic. Ris apparently took the easiest route, which is very short-termed oriented. lies begets lies and it just escalates into a bubble, that's always has the possibility of bursting.

Just this monday, I had a couple of students of mine (NTU) talking about the Ris affair and feeling sympathetic... and I had to point out to them about the signals she sent and her decisions (including the act and a lack of remorse for credit card fraud, and ESPECIALLY from her "eye for an eye" mentality when she suspected you leaked her secret, and wanted to use the fact that you stood up for her against the organizers against you... simply unbelievable)which sent a clear signal about the sort of person she is (basically, one who has a mean streak but always trying to convince others and herself that she's good... despite not being morally/ethically competent - yes, there are stages of moral development which have been researched quite extensively, and it is possible to determine a person's level of morality/ethics).

Some people don't appreciate help and will even bite the hand that helps them. I've experienced the very same situations in the army... and it's bitter like hell... so I understand. You'll just have to figure out who to help, and who's not worth helping. I'm not talking about being judgemental or cynical, just learn to protect yourself while helping others. If you can understand the fundamental reasons/causes, it'll help. Anyways, good luck. Don't worry too much about it... and continue with your stance (I'll support such a stance wholeheartedly, with academic support too!).

Cheers,
Isidore

Hi..

I just read the plagiarism thing involving Ris. Quite shock though. I mean most students, especially in the varsity, would have probably, commited some form of plagiarising of assignments, lab work, project from friends or the net etc. But smuggling some written notes into the final examination hall.....No way!
Not that much of a risk taker ;)

To cheat in the examination hall, needs a lot of courage !

jc student said...

honestly, this ris low issue is so yesterday. there isn't anything wrong about singlish, isn't this what singaporean culture have nurtured her citizens to be like? of course,not many are as heavily accented as ris low. your claims of innocence only made you look more guilty. i do not think that you have a very good command of the english language either. it would just be average and nothing more than that.
ris low might not be qualified to represent singapore, but you're not good enough either, for it seems that you are more intelligent (ahem*) as compared to her and that means that she could easily be victimized by you. your claims of innocence and evidence provided are all one sided claims, since you censored the name of the reporter and she/he is not willing to vouch for you isn't it? you can very simply pull that off with help from anyone.

please, singaporeans tend to be so self-righteous and tend to fail to see two sides of the story. get a life claire, if you were really fully innocent this wouldn't bother you much. this element of competitiveness is definitely present, even if ris low is your friend. your hypocrisy disgust me and you have disgraced singapore more than ris low has.

Anonymous said...

Hi Claire..... I am reading your post and there were two things I am rather puzzled hope I did not misjudged you in any ways if I had I am sorry just my opinions and thoughts.....

1) Why did Ris suspected you were the one who tipp off about her credit card fraud if she had never once told you about it? It's kinda strange right.....Sorry but I assumed that you knew this all along but you pretended not to know....I believed you did not tipped off this matter to the media in hope of detroning her... but it's not conviencing that you did not know about this matter....yr HP msg say "HUH?" but that did not prove you do not know about this matter.... you wanted to prove to everyone you do not know so that people will not think you are the one who tipped off right? For me if a reporter asked if I knew about this matter and was I THE ONE WHO TIPPED OFF any smart person will say "huh" and pretend not to know just in case the other party was trying to dish out info....so am I right????

2) In your youtube video, you told the reporter that you speak English with Ris most of the time in fact you never heard her speaking Mandarin to you...but in actual fact fact your phone conversation that was recorded by her you spoke Chinese with her most of the time....with a mixture of some English words... So why are you lying?

Sorry, I don't find that you are an honest person, the things you mentioned did not substantiate that you were not lying...to certain extent I think you did and no matter what a lie is still a lie and this also prove to show you are capable of twisting facts ya?

Cheese, Cake, Cupcake, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Claire, Clementine, Cookies and Cream said...

Dear Anonymous,

since you bothered to ask so nicely, I'll try my best to explain to you alright? There are some things I can't say in order to protect Ris and ERM and other people involved.. So I will try my best to tell you what I can alright?

"1) Why did Ris suspected you were the one who tipp off about her credit card fraud if she had never once told you about it? It's kinda strange right.....Sorry but I assumed that you knew this all along but you pretended not to know....I believed you did not tipped off this matter to the media in hope of detroning her... but it's not conviencing that you did not know about this matter....yr HP msg say "HUH?" but that did not prove you do not know about this matter.... you wanted to prove to everyone you do not know so that people will not think you are the one who tipped off right? For me if a reporter asked if I knew about this matter and was I THE ONE WHO TIPPED OFF any smart person will say "huh" and pretend not to know just in case the other party was trying to dish out info....so am I right????"
I swear I did not know about the whole issue.. When Ris said I was discouraged and she told me about this matter to cheer me up, it wasn't true. The other girls in the pageant know what she said to me and they did not hear this story when she tried to encourage me. The only confession she made to me was another issue which was the reason why I called her, because I wanted to help her with the issue. I really did not know about the fraud case issue and I have no idea how to prove myself for something I really don't know. I have shown my evidence and it is up to you to believe me, if you do not believe me, there is nothing I can do. Another thing is that, I never approached the media. Only they approached me, so I wouldn't be the tip off. Rather than asking me, why don't you try asking the reporter who wrote the article about the fraud case? I would like my name cleared as well. :)

"2) In your youtube video, you told the reporter that you speak English with Ris most of the time in fact you never heard her speaking Mandarin to you...but in actual fact fact your phone conversation that was recorded by her you spoke Chinese with her most of the time....with a mixture of some English words... So why are you lying?"
I speak Chinese mix with English with most people I know and Ris is one of those girls who reply English even if you speak Chinese to her. Try to listen out for her voice in the background. She is speaking English. See? Her English is better than me! I'm just a typical Singaporean who speaks Chinese mix English=Singlish. Unless there are some words which she can't say it in English, she will say one or two Chinese words which are countable events to me. So if this minor details means alot to you, then I am sorry that I misled you. But ultimately, I just wan to give a fair truth of my experience with her. I'm speaking the truth, and I hope this clears any misunderstanding you have. If this can't clear your misunderstandings, then I am sorry I have no more evidence left.
