Who Takes Better Selfie: Baey Yam Keng Or Kim K? My Happy Place

We all know Baey Yam Keng is the selfie-king amongst Singapore’s younger politicians. The only other politician who is perhaps better is the Prime Minister himself. But, how does Mr Baey’s selfie-taking skills compare against The Queen Of Selfies – Kim Kardashian? Go Away pits the two in a selfie face-off. 

Round 1: The Work-out Selfie 

byk-kk-1

Unless you’re blessed with a derriere like Kim’s, a belfie (a selfie of your behind) is not the most flattering shot. And, it’s a good thing that BYK seems to know that. What does he do? Show off his toned legs instead!

Score
BYK 1: Kim 1 – Anyone who knows his/her best angle in a selfie deserves a point

 

Round 2: The Car Selfie

byk-kk-2

Attempting to take a selfie in a moving vehicle is a skill and both our contenders here show satisfactory mastery in this area. Not just that, they know how to use filter and lighting to create extremely flattering pictures. Kim’s, however, is a little heavy on the exposure. BYK, on the other, sets a good example by belting up.

Score
BYK 1: Kim 0 – cos at least you can still make out BYK’s features

 

Round 3: The Side Selfie

Who’s got the better side view? We can’t decide!

Score
BYK 1: Kim 1 

 

Round 4: The Up-In-Air Selfie

byk-kk-4

Selfie in a plane? Meh. Been there, done that. A selfie as co-pilot (even though you may know zilch about flying a plane)? That’s not something everyone can boast about.

Score
BYK 0: Kim 1 – obviously

 

Round 5: The Makeover Selfie

byk-kk-5

Is it ever possible for Kim to look bad? Even with her hair in curlers, she looks ready for the red-carpet . BYK took an hour to get red-carpet ready and, we have to say, the finished look, even though with a little bit of shine on the T-zone, isn’t too shabby.

Score
BYK 1: Kim 0 – we always give points to anyone who likes to keep it real 

 

Round 6: The Deep-In-Thought Selfie 

byk-kk-6

BYK looks like he’s thinking. Kim’s pose says she’s thinking. Who’s really thinking? Hmm …

Score
BYK 0: Kim 0 – one got too enthusiastic with his filter and colour settings, the other? We don’t know what to think! 

 

Round 7: The “We Love The Troops” Selfie

byk-kk-7

There’s selfie-inception going on in Kim K’s pic. We are really not sure about those beige tights – is she wearing Spanx as pants??? But there is an even more important question that needs to be answered: Was someone tasked to take BYK’s backfie or did he set his camera on timer?

Score
BYK 1: Kim 0 – we don’t know about you, but we’d grant this MP the right to bare (bear) arms

 

Final Score
BYK 5: Kim 3 

Sorry, Kim.

Sorry, Kim.

For as long as she can remember, Vanessa has always wanted to escape to a place where no one knows her. But because that’s not always possible, she often retreats into the world of books and pop culture. When she does get to travel, she prefers going off the beaten track and back to nature. Some of her best memories include napping in a treehouse in Laos and cycling across padi fields in Bali.
