2005 "Best Asian Weblog" winner's site hacked, 3 years of archives gone
Because Xiaxue has REQUESTED the following be spread among the Web community, this isn't copyright material that falls under the 4 paragraph rule.

She's pretty cool, pretty entertaining, pretty smart, and this SUCKS. This is hacker bullshit at its worst.

Thank you people
Give me one day. One day, and I promise will come back, stronger than ever, and with very difficult-to-guess passwords. My previous password wasn't easy to guess either, it is a mix-up of my IC number. How he got it, we can only fathom.

I made some of you very worried, sorry. =)


p/s: In using my gmail account, he called himself Mr Tan Kok Wan. Likely it is a fake name though.

My blog got hacked
You saw what happened. (points below)

I managed to recover the bloody gmail account. And that is because of the cookies in IE. Whoever said IE sucks is WRONG! Because Mozilla, somehow, didn't let me in.

My xiaxue@gmail and blogger accounts got hacked.

YOU MOTHERFUCKER. The fucker deleted all my archives. I cannot imagine the amount of work I have to do.

And you can see what he wrote below. Asswipe!

Ok, guess what? I am exhausted. You, who are possibly asleep, missed the whole saga, which lasted like 2 whole hours.

In my anxiety, all the while crying, I wrote several emails, to many people, including all the bloggers I know:

Can you guys, please, help me put this message up on your respective blogs? If it is not too much trouble. Please help me spread the word:

Dear readers of,

Yes, indeed, my blog has been hacked. I understand some of you might be sending emails to me right now, alerting me, and the thought warms my heart (which is very startlingly cold right now mind you).

Unfortunately, the hacker is quite clever. He also managed to guess the password to my gmail account. My 3,000 emails, some of which very important business contacts, are all gone.

*snap!* Gone.

The last time I saw my account, I saw two new emails, and these were the only two. I thought Gmail cocked up on me. I laughed, refreshed, and hey, I got logged out! To my horror I couldn't log in anymore. Can you imagine the amount of time he or she took to delete everything?

Checking blogger.... GONE TOO!

How wonderful. A total of 12 or so blogs, all painstakingly done up, all gone. The media center, the FAQs, the photolog, the Hate site. My hard work of 3 years, gone.

Vanished into thin air now! How very cruel this person is. I wonder what made him or her do this.

I remember I once told Adrian, "You know what is my greatest fear?" "What?" he mumbled (not because he wanted to mumble but because he only grunts and mumbles).

It was that someone would hack into my blogger account.

Adrian laughed and said, "Then did you save all your blog files?"

I told him no. He scolded me and said, "Then you better go and save them now!"

And I did! The latest, however, was the May archives. So if you do have ways to get back the June and July archives, or you saved them even, do tell me! I never thought I would ever be thanking this person, but... did put in some work in copying my files afterall. The URL for my archives are there.

It will be hard work doing up all the old blog entries again. It will take a lot of time and sweat, but I can do it.

Because being Xiaxue means nothing can get me down, ever. Especially when so many of you are with me. Thank you Shuyin, for waking up at 430am to help me.

I started out with nothing, and I can do it all over again. I will stop those bloody tears right this moment.

Help me spread the word. Help me put this message on your blog. Do not email me at from now until I get back my account. If you want a word, please email me at .

Thank you.

The real Wendy

Thanks bloggers!

I am super exhausted now. I can't believe I managed to get my account back. I am really happy. THIS IS NOT A FUCKING JOKE. Please still do tell me how to get back my two months worth of archives if you can.

I'll write more tomorrow. My eyes are swollen and I am about to faint from the fatigue. Knn my heart was like a rubber band just now.

The most embarrassing thing is that I also emailed blogger support, blogger buzz, as well as .... Biz Stone to ask for help.

Tomorrow. Tomorrow when I wake up I tell you everything.


Funny. Now that this fucker has logged into my blogger account before I feel disgusted by it. Like a body that has been tainted by a rapist.
