Is Heather Chua for real?

Is Heather Chua for real?

SINGAPORE - She is at it again.

Yes, nefarious "Heather Chua" has hit Singapore's cyberspace again.

This time for an attention-grabbing Facebook post on Thursday, where she laments how her classmate from Raffles Girls' School has married an ITE graduate.

She wrote: "By going with an ITE graduate, she (the schoolmate) not only shame (sic) RGS but most importantly, she make (sic) her parents lose face in front of their friends (sic)."

The post was shocking enough to be posted and shared on multiple sites and forums, and made headlines in one Chinese evening daily.

Previously, Chua gained notoriety for her critiques on NS men and people who live in housing board flats. Yesterday, there were new racist salvos on her account that got more people irate.


But growing evidence suggests that the controversial Heather Chua is not what she seems.

The information she provides about herself is hard to prove.

On her Facebook profile, Chua claims to be a 40-year-old Singaporean, a former student of the National University of Singapore, Raffles Girls' School, Temasek Junior College (TJC) and Xinmin Primary School.

When contacted, TJC said they could not find a "Heather Chua" in their records.

A spokesman for NUS could not verify if she was a student but said "the University does not condone disrespectful behaviour and comments among our students and graduates".
