The Recent Scandal About Zoey Raymond & Instagram's Change of Policy
Who exactly is Zoey Raymond? To be really honest, I didn't even know of her existence until I read the entire note about how this lady by the name of Zoey Raymond, came between a relationship, became a third party in the relationship, and caused a wedding that was two months away from taking place to be called off! Sounds like a drama right? But well, it is a reality that this has happened and it is pretty sad to see the account of Yuki Ng, whom was the bride-to-be. Till date, Zoey Raymond hasn't stepped forward to give an account of her side of the story and neither have Alvin, whom was the groom-to-be, said anything to clarify the matter. From the looks of it, Yuki Ng's account is extremely credible with substantial evidence and backing from family members and friends; and Yuki Ng gives me the impression that she is pretty mature and composed; judging by the way she expresses herself in the notes that she writes.
I shan't replicate the story in this blog entry but if you're really interested to read Yuki Ng's account [some of which are written in Mandarin and some of them which has been translated into English], do check out: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alvin-Yuki/253711181424186?fref=ts
Also, out of curiousity, I went to check out the Facebook Page of Zoey Raymond and I was pretty appalled at the behaviour of certain Netizens. Their comments towards Zoey Raymond were extremely harsh, some of which are pretty uncouth and laced with expletives, and I think it is really important that we learn how to conduct ourselves be it online or offline. While Zoey Raymond may deserve some form of punishment, who are we really to judge? I'm not implying that what Zoey Raymond did was right because I've been through what Yuki Ng went through, but surly there could be a more mature way of telling people that what they did was wrong right? I totally agree with what Yuki Ng recently mentioned; that even if we ought to scold people, there is a more civilised way of scolding them.
Anyhows, I highly doubt people would really pursue this matter till the end. Who knows, this news would probably have die down by next week or the week after and it will soon become just another part of history.
On a separate note, Instagram recently announced a change in their policy and this has caused quite a huge ruckus among Netizens and even till now, I am considering whether to stick to Instagram or jump ship to Flickr. Well, for now, I guess I will just backup all my files on Instagram and then when the need arises, jump ship to Instagram's competitors like Flickr.
If you're wondering how to backup all the photos that you have uploaded onto Instagram, there is a web app known as Instaport that can grab all of your photos for download.

Alright, so much about all these rantings; it's time to get back to the second part of my Genting Trip with Nuffnang!
