DJ Leng Yein is famous for the sexy outfits that highlight her voluptuous figure at work - and as a subject of serial plastic surgery.

Her abilities and talents, however, are more than skin deep.

A classically trained pianist, she has played the piano since she was five and once worked as a pianist at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur. "I know my minors and my majors, so I will never go out of tune," she said.

Miss Leng, now 29, was spotted by a beauty pageant scout in 2003. The Kuantan native entered the state pageant. She became Miss Pahang and went all the way to the finals of Miss Malaysia World that year. "That was when I hadn't had any plastic surgery," she admitted proudly.

She went on to participate in many pageants and win titles such as Miss World Cup Asia and Japan GT Queen. "I just kept winning and winning," she said, adding that she has won 22 titles to date.

She worked as a model, host and ambassador for beauty products. Despite reports that she has spent hundreds of thousands on plastic surgery, Miss Leng said she did not pay for most of her procedures.

"I was the ambassador for three plastic surgery clinics, so I did not need to pay a single cent," she said.

Since she was 21, she has had nose jobs, dimpleplasty and breast augmentation and been upfront about them. She proudly declares on her Facebook profile that she is a "plastic beauty".

"It is like permanent make-up. I just want to make my life easier and save a lot of time," she said.

You could say she has been a fan of surgery since she was a child, though her dreams were of wielding the scalpel herself, as a heart surgeon. "My hands are not shaky and I scored straight As," she said.

However, when she was 16, her father was diagnosed with cancer. Her parents had run a thriving hardware business and all the money they had went to his treatment. But within six months, he was dead.

Despite qualifying for university entry, Miss Leng, who has a younger sister, Leng Sean, 27, put aside her dreams and went to work.
