6 qualities of a true beauty

  • Our world is full of beautiful people. Just turn on the television, scroll through Instagram, or walk down the street - people are beautiful! But a true beauty is a rare occurrence. They possess a special combination of natural, learned, and cultivated qualities.
    These are the qualities of a true beauty:
  • 1. Glows from inner peace and happiness

    Truly, the most beautiful people choose to be happy. They smile. They laugh. They radiate joy.
    This happiness creates a warmth and attraction about them. It draws people in and helps others feel loved and welcome. It brightens the room and cheers everyone up.
    Beautiful people choose to be happy. They make the most of their circumstances and boldly face the realities of life. Their happiness heightens the mood of everyone in their path.
  • 2. Knows who they are

    True beauties understand exactly who they are, and they don't try to be someone else. They know their strengths and weaknesses and embrace their imperfections. They alone define themselves, regardless of opinions, trends, and pressures. True beauties know who they are and love that person.
  • 3. Sticks to values

    Beautiful people strive to live decent lives. They make good choices and hold themselves accountable to self-imposed standards of moral behavior. They align every decision with a strong internal voice telling them what is right and what is wrong. This frees them from feeling guilt and regret and promotes a distinct coolness and self-esteem. True beauties stick with their principles; they can't be compromised.
  • 4. Conquers adversity with inner strength

    "The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." - Elisabeth Kubler Ross
    True beauties are strong. From the depths of their soul, they are built piece by piece from each life experience. They allow adversity to transform their character into a work of brilliant beauty.
  • 5. Acts in goodness

    A true beauty radiates from the most beautiful feature in the world - the heart. Other words that describe their attractiveness include kind, compassionate, gentle, and sweet. They are mindful of those around them and always look to build and encourage. Their words are uplifting and their actions are selfless. In every sense of the word these people are simply GOOD. True beauties are the best kind of people this world has to offer.
  • 6. Rocks the bod

    Beautiful people are beautiful because they take care of themselves. They eat well and exercise. They get enough sleep. They glow because they're healthy.
    They dress in a way that flatters their body and personality. They embrace their body type and WORK IT. This outward beauty only enhances their inner beauty. Physical appearance is only surface deep, but it is important. The outward appearance is a direct reflection of the self-image held deep within. True beauties know this, and their outward appearance mirrors and magnifies their stunning inner beauty.

Mama Mia! Every women's dream skin and overall complexion...

I remember watching Mama Mia - The Movie, with my kids and had a great time. It was full of memories, especially those ABBA songs. Yes, it was like 30 years ago when I was a teenager like my 15 year old daughter.

Other than the fun storyline, the romance and those songs, I remember being quite captivated by a young actress, who played the daughter to the mom, famously immortalised by Meryl Streep.

And I found out that her name is Amanda Seyfried. You can read more about her here:

Other than her overall youthful demeanor, Amanda has the most beautiful skin, not mentioning her lovely, mesmerizing green eyes. Well, some girls have all the luck! HAHA!

Just the other day, a patient asked me what kind of skin treatment and procedures she can sign-up to look like Amanda Seyfried, the IT GIRL of Hollywood now.

I was caught speechless, momentarily.

I didn't quite remember what I said, but she burst out laughing saying she was just pulling my legs, and she knew there's no such treatment and confessing how she envied Amanda's skin and complexion, and her wonderfully slim and attractive body, with just the right curves at the right places.

And here's Amanda Seyfried in her latest movie, "In Time".

I watched it with my loved ones on a weekend two weeks ago.

Amanda Seyfried!

O wow! I know what's troubling my pretty patient now...

Beauty Concept : Tattoos - Beautiful or dirty and ugly?

Do you think tattoos are beautiful? Or are they dirty and ugly?

Angelina Jolie. and her tattoos.

When I was a young girl, growing up in a certain part of Kuala Lumpur, tattoos are a no-no. Only gangsters get tattoos. If you are stopped by the road and the police found tattoos on your body, you are suspected of being a triad member.

Now, you see tattoos on people you least expect, like that red rose on the shoulder of that lovely young mother who's cradling her 1 year old baby daughter at the mall.

Isn't she lovely?

What is your concept of beauty? Each and everyone of us holds very different views as far as beauty concept is concerned.

Do you often hear people say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"? Well, with Katie Holmes, it is easy. I think the percentage of people in agreement with the title of this post will be very high. She's a natural beauty, and we certainly don't have to argue on the concept at all.

Isn't she lovely? Beautiful? Gorgeous? What lovely skin, lovely smile, lovely dress (love that purple, grey shade!) covering a wonderfully, lovely body, AND...Ooooo, what a lovely handbag! Can anyone tell me where I can get something like that? HAHA!

KATIE HOLMES, the natural beauty.

LO & BEHOLD, America's Most Wanted Celebrity Body Parts!

I stumbled unto the article below. I am posting for your reading pleasure. :-) Yes, I find it amusing, if not slightly enlightening. Don't we all sometimes envy those beautiful people we see on the silverscreen. So bewitched we are that we secretly wish we look like our stars. So here we are, with a list of those body parts that we secretly wish we own. Well, we all  know if we ever put them together into one person, he/she will look frightful. What makes a person beautiful is more than the sum of the parts, yes?

What makes us beautiful is who we are inside. The person inside.

Having said that, let's enjoy the article. And please take it with a pinch of salt, yeah? OK, a lot of salt. HAHA!


When it comes to figures, Jennifer Aniston’s is pretty flawless. But for those looking for some help from the scalpel, long, lean and supermodel-y beat out the petite “girl-next-door” look in 2010.
Aniston came in second for the “Most Desired Female Body” on the 14th Annual “Famed Hottest Looks” survey, compiled by Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons Dr. Richard Fleming and Dr. Toby Mayer.

Even after giving birth in December 2009, Brazilian-born supermodel Gisele Bundchen was the most requested body by the doctors' patients. “Different body types are represented on the list because most women are shaped differently and want to look naturally beautiful,” explained Dr. Fleming. “Some women want the lean look like Gisele, while others want to retain their roundness – just not too round. Men, on the other hand, all want a six-pack regardless of their body type.”On that note, Mark Wahlberg took the top spot, pursued by six-packing Channing Tatum and Tyson Beckford.
Aniston came in second again in the category of “Most Desired Hair” (first was country crooner Taylor Swift, third was reality starlet Kim Kardashian) and when it came to schnozzes, Natalie Portman was 2010’s winner, followed closely by Emma Stone and category veteran Nicole Kidman.

In the lips category, Angelina Jolie came in second for the first time in quite some time. The Oscar-winning beauty, famous for her plump pout, was stopped by 26-year-old, newly single, Scarlett Johansson.
The docs said in 2010, keeping it real was the top priority for those seeking artificial enhancements.
“The biggest trend we have seen this year is that patients are requesting a more natural look. If you review the names on the list, you will notice that all of those people look naturally beautiful,” added Mayer. “We have been performing plastic surgery for 35 years and after 35 years of stressing the non-surgical look, our list reflects non-surgical looking people.”

Take a look at all of the winners and runners-up below.

Away to Singapore

I was away to Singapore yesterday and this morning for a seminar. Just landed at KLIA and making my way back home. I probably will drop by my clinic along the way.

Stay Real, Be Beautiful!

I am sure many of us want to be beautiful, and we unwittingly try to compare ourselves to our most loved celebrities. The truth is, most celebrities aren't always as glamourous as those fancy fashion magazines would like us to believe.
As beautiful and dashing they are, they all need a little help (sometimes a lot!) with digital re-touching. It is call Photoshopping, the art of digital manipulation using the powerful and versatile software, Adobe Photoshop.
Take a look at the pictures below, and ask yourself if you are being unkind to yourself when you do compare yourself to those glossy, glamorous cover pictures on Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, etc.

Britney Spears

Enlarged/ repositioned head, hair and necklace,
Enlarged/ raised contrast on eyes and mouth,
Removed minor wrinkles from eyes, mouth and neck,
Brightened eyes, hair, and skin tone.

Brittany Murphy

Removed lower eye lids,
Smoothed and softened skin tone,
Minimized shadows, brightened eyes and hair color.

Kelly Clarkson

Thinned face and jawline,
Thinned stomach, thighs and behind,
Minimized shoulder.

Eva Longoria
Removed dark circles under eyes, removed blemish on cheek,
Thinned waist, made shirt more transparent,
Enlarged arm, thighs and behind,

Enhanced eyes and hair color.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Removed dark circles from under eyes,
Brightened eyes and evened out skin tone.

Justin Timberlake
Removed dark circles from under eyes,
Removed shine and creases from forehead,
Brightened eyes and hair color, smoothed skin tone.

Keira Knightley
Enlarged chest,
Added volume to hair,
Softened eyes and eye brows.


Removed bags from under eyes,
Removed wrinkles,
Brightened eyes, hair, and skin tone.

So, I hope you feel better about yourself now. 
There's a big difference between self-grooming and self-delusion. We know the media world  isn't helping us much to feel good about our real selves, living ordinary lives with our imperfect complexion, a figure that is one size too large/too small or our body weight that refuses to cooperate. 

Just remember this, you aren't perfect.

And that's OK!

And like they say, "Glamour is a state of mind" and "Sexiness is a mental attitude".

So, let's all live with an attitude!

The right attitude, that is :-)

I am looking forward to upgrade my website with XIMNET.

I have been using this blogger account to manage my Internet presence for a while. I started out using Blogger because it is convenient and fast.

A few years down the road now, I am seriously considering engaging a professional web company to design my website. My choice is obvious. XIMNET MALAYSIA will be a perfect match in terms of their design skills and industry experience. I consider XIMNET MALAYSIA to be the best web design and Internet strategy company in Malaysia. Well yes, the reasons are obvious.

Recently, XIMNET launched XTOPIA (, and I am thinking now of using this as the platform for me to serve my customers better. Since it has the ability to manage content with its in-built CMS (Content Management System), track sales opportunities, store my customers database, manage service requests, I think it will be good for me. Another thing is, I am thinking of starting a Loyalty Program and I understand that XTOPIA has a built-in loyalty program system.

I will get started once I am clear on what I want to do and how much I am willing to invest.

Till then...
