Ex-Playboy bunny enjoys CNY more after conversion

February 20, 2015

Rara says the CNY celebrations have nothing to do with religion, but rather, was a celebration of the new year.


PETALING JAYA: Former Malaysian Playboy model, Felixia Yeap, revealed that after embracing Islam, she was eager to spend more time celebrating the Chinese New Year (CNY).

Yeap, Malaysia’s first ever Playboy bunny, had made the announcement of her conversion to Islam during her 28th birthday on July 3, 2014, on Facebook, reported The Mirror UK.

Her shocking revelation garnered more than 750,000 likes from her 850,000 fans.

But her conversion has not stopped Yeap, now Raisyyah Rania Yeap (Rara), from joining her family reunion dinner and celebrating CNY, reported The Malaysian Insider.

She explained that most of the CNY celebrations had nothing to do with religion or religious beliefs, but was instead a celebration of a new year.

“Even back when I had no religious belief (atheist/freethinker), I was almost never involved in the praying ceremonies or rituals,” revealed Rara.

“Thus being a Muslim now does not seem to be much different than how things were pre-shahadah,” she added.

Rara remarked that her first year celebrating the lunar new year as a Muslim had made her appreciate her Chinese roots more.

Pre-conversion days, she would only spend four to five days in her hometown.

However, from this year onwards, she planned to spend “at least seven to 10 days” with her family after having prioritised her work over her family all these years.

Ex Playboy bunny Felixia Yeap takes GIANT STEP into Islam, thanks mom for standing by her

Felixia Yeap, the former Playboy bunny who announced last Friday that she was embracing Islam, said she felt “born again” on her birthday today when her conversion would be made official.

The 28-year-old, however, said she would fight to keep her Chinese name given by her mother.

“My Chinese name means tranquility and elegance,” said Yeap, who said she would take the Islamic declaration of faith in front of family members and close friends.

“Today is not just my birthday, but also the day that I am born again. The day that I finally return after 28 years of finding the way home,” wrote Yeap in her soul-baring posting this morning.

Yeap said her conversion was the result of a seven-month quest to learn about Islam, after she took to wearing the hijab, a decision which attracted criticism from her fans.

Felixia Yeap kesal foto lama jadi tumpuan


6 Jun – Bekas model Playboy terkenal, Felixia Yeap berasa kecewa dan kesal apabila gambar-gambar seksi lamanya kembali menjadi tumpuan ramai dengan komen lucah dan negatif.

Berikutan itu, Felixia telah mengambil keputusan untuk memadam kesemua gambar-gambar tersebut. “Siapa saya untuk menyuruh mereka berhenti daripada terus mencemuh dan memberi komen lucah pada gambar milik saya di Facebook, justeru saya mengambil keputusan untuk memadam semua gambar seksi itu.

“Saya juga perlu mendapatkan bantuan pembantu peribadi bagi melakukan tugas terbabit dan menjangkakan semuanya dapat dipadam sebelum Ramadan ini,” katanya kepada sebuah akhbar tempatan.

Tambah model berusia 28 tahun itu lagi, dia turut berasa sedih apabila komen berbaur lucah yang ditulis telah mengundang persepsi negatif kepada dirinya.

“Apa yang mereka komen pada gambar lama itu mengenai masa silam saya sebelum berhijab. Saya rasa golongan yang memberikan komen lucah ini merasakan diri mereka sangat baik dan lebih berkuasa daripada tuhan serta tidak pernah terlepas daripada melakukan kesilapan.”

I am really not comfortable when certain religious association seems to take advantage on my current situation and create an illusion to the public and in media that they want to “help” me and that they approached me…when nobody from their side actually did.

So does that not count as spreading a lie?

From an association that actually said want to guide me towards a religion, I think that did not set a good first impression nor good example already.

Was Felixia Yeap in Ipoh recently?

Some of my staff said that’s Felixia Yeap in our shop but I don’t read FHM or keep up with such things… I’m pretty sure it’s my shop in the background because I bloody paid for those tables… But seriously, is that this Felixia Yeap…?

Malaysia’s FIRST Playboy bunny models the HIJAB: Will she be nabbed for SEDITION?

First Malaysian Playboy bunny and model Felixia Yeap’s decision to don the hijab (Muslim headgear) despite being a non-Muslim has shocked many, with some fans berating her and labelling it as a “publicity stunt”.

The 27-year-old Ipoh beauty, who has been modelling since she was 19, however, remained unperturbed by all the scepticism and criticism that she had been receiving since she started donning the hijab a few months ago.

“They say I did this to find a rich Malay Datuk to marry. If I wanted to find a rich man, I would have done it a long time ago when I was still actively modelling in sexy poses. Their criticisms defy logic. All I wanted to do was to cover up more and do more decent modelling,” she told The Malaysian Insider.

Yeap’s action had been criticised by Muslims as well as non-Muslims who said she was being “disrespectful” towards Islam for wearing a hijab.

They said before donning the hijab, she should have removed the pictures of her in a Playboy bunny outfit and also others which showed her in sexy poses and revealing attire.

Some of her over 148,000 fans on Facebook and her blog had criticised her action as a publicity stunt to gain more popularity and fame. Some even left her social media site after that.

Yeap, who is still receiving invitations to appear at Playboy events and functions all over the world despite ending her career as a bunny in 2010, defended her action.

She said although some Muslims had criticised her, most of the negative comments had come from non-Muslims.

She said she had always loved baju kurung and Malay-Muslim traditions.

On the negative perception towards her for donning the hijab, Yeap said she did not blame the fans for being “confused” with her action.

On her sexy modelling gigs, Yeap said she is completing her remaining commitments which she had agreed to before she decided to wear the hijab.

“This month would be my last assignments. I have to make several appearances for Playboy Bunny International. Many failed to understand that this is a work commitment and I am a professional model. I have to complete the job by hook or by crook. Even if I want to leave something I want to leave it with pride.”

Better person

What would be her New Year resolution? Yeap said she is going to be selective in her modelling gigs.

From Playboy bunny to hijab model

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s first Playboy bunny feels she is “worth more than showing off my body.”

Felixia Yeap, whose modelling career took off after a stint at the Playboy Club Sands Macau two years ago, is now modelling Muslimah clothing such as the hijab.

“I believe I am worth more than just showing off my body. I am more than this.

“And I don’t feel proud if attention- or fame-seeking model wannabes out there look at me as their idol or role model,” she said in a blog post titled “The Truth Behind My Hijab.

Yeap said she felt “liberated” after she paraded in the hijab for a commercial casting a few months ago.

But modelling the hijab has not changed her religion. She denied that she had converted to Islam and remained a free thinker.

She still does “sexy” fashion shoots but that is because she has to “pay the bills.” And she is more selective now with her assignments.

“I am planning to slow down on those kind of shoots and try my best to avoid them. I only do about 30% of the requests I get,” she said.

Felixia Yeap – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


In May 2011, she made headlines in Asia by becoming Malaysia’s first and only Playboy Bunny when she was handpicked for a waitressing job at Macau’s Playboy Club Macao, a swanky nightspot for high-rollers.

If you want someone special, a special act, for a party, you could hire her for $1,600.

She performs mostly at private parties and outdoor fashion shows, charging $1,600 for a “30 to 45-minute” performance. A typical gig involves “swimming around in the pool, smiling and posing for cameras, as well as chit-chatting with guests”.
