Fading Flower

Bismillah Al Rahman Al Rahim,

This world is tougher to live in when we're dominated by superficial people. Superficial meaning at the surface, people judge you by the way you walk, you dress, you act, you speak, you look and mostly by your face. There is no one else to be blamed except for the society itself. Since at a young age our minds were already manipulated, brain washed, pictured the whole meaning of beauty through cartoon characters such as Snow white, Cinderella, Little Mermaid and etc. Is there any guideline stating that a beautiful person should be tall? fair skin? long dark hair? I don't think so. So are you telling me that those with shorter height, dark skin, brighter hair does not fall under the beauty category?

We should read the content first rather than just looking at the cover.

Lets be realistic here, no matter what industry you're in, let it be arts or science, first impression is extremely important. 

It is in humans nature to judge someone just by their  first encounter. But most people misunderstand, misinterpret by the whole meaning of first impression. First impression can be view in many ways but as for me, the most important aspect is in the way how you speak, the way how you dress yourself, the way how you bring yourself.

Brisbane, Australia, Spring 2010
Be polite, be humble, be neat, be clean, be gentle, be sophisticated, be nice, be presentable, be attentive.

People like it when you listen attentively to whatever they have to say, they feel important since you're taking them seriously. It is always good to have this kind of first impression rather than only to have a good looking pretty face on the outside. You need to understand that a beauty is like a fading flower. Beauty is like words written on the sand, once the wind blows it'll fade away and disappear. However with a kind sincere heart, the words are engraved to a stone, no matter how strong the wind blows, the stone will not bow to it.
