Hidden Beauty

When I was handing out my money to pay for my magazine, I looked up and saw a lady with burnt scar on her right ear. It is not her scar that surprised me, it is her confidence. Normally when a person met an imperfect person, that person will spontaneously focusing on that person's lack. I admit that I have the urge to look at her scar too. However when I met her eyes, I saw her as a person with high confidence and not self conscious. She is very pretty. It is easy to forget about her scar and focus on her.

When we were photographing fruits around food stall, a guy approached us and told us not to simply photograph. He is not ugly but we think he is an ugly guy. He is ugly because his heart is ugly.

Maybe I wrote about this before. I had a classmate who has imperfection on her lips. It is very obvious in the beginning. Before I graduated, I can't seem to find the lack on her face. Her whole attitude had covered up her lack.

Appearance is not the only factor when we define beauty. It is the heart and attitude which can alter your beauty. If you can live without communicating with others, you can enjoy being praised for your pretty face. Are you lying to yourself when you think your pretty face is enough?

The image of the lady at magazine booth had left a deep impression in my mind. She left a confident and sweet smile. She didn't even try to cover up her scar. Her hair were tied up into a ponytail. She is my model.

yeah, i agree with that.. beauty from the skin is just superficial and it won't last long if the inner heart is ugly.. on the other hand, you can actually see the beauty of an ordinary (or even not good looking) person if they have a kind heart..

[SK] said...

Leon, yes it can have such impact. Can even melt ice. you have a warm smile too. Keep it up!

Caroline, how individual take it? I am sorry I don't quite get this phrase. Would you mind share about this?
Don't judge a book from its cover.

Danny, with you big mouth, I am sure you can give a very broad smile. hahaha

[SK], superficial beauty can last, but degraded very fast. Yes, isn't imagine if you truly look into someone, we can see someone's beautiful heart.
wah!! SK! Are you trying to make me blush? Accepting your compliment, a thanks to you. I can't say you are handsome, because people might misunderstood! I am sure you have a beautiful heart too. Or else you won't share your script generously, and you don't look bad~~ :D

AmirFX, cita omputeh hantu kah? hahaha. AmirFX, I learned many Sarawak Malay words from your comment. Thanks.
