Malaysian girl a hit on Instagram but date-less on Valentine's Day
Miss Chia Min Chen

The latest social media phenomenon in Asia is known as "the girl who holds things".

With about 213,000 followers on Instagram, Miss Chia Min Chen's pictures sometimes receive more than 19,000 likes each.

The most random things, apparently.

From a corn on the cob to a person's hand and a crying toddler, this Malaysian beauty's hold on fame is indeed a peculiar one.

The 25-year-old owner of a spa business told The New Paper she began getting popular on Instagram towards the end of 2014, even though she started her account in 2013.

According to her, it was just a "coincidence" that many of her pictures, usually taken by friends and family members, have her holding something.

Miss Chia said she never expected such an "overwhelming response" but is "thankful" for it.

"It took me by surprise to see that I have attracted so many fans. Most of my pictures are spontaneous.
