Letter from Yeo Shuan Chee, 05:55 AM Nov 12, 2010
PHOTO: We are simply not perfect! I may find myself remaining single for the rest of my life but that does not mean I will not be able to contribute towards the progress of the nation.
PHOTO: Love your body, through thick and thin. Whether you are thin, fat, white, black, or green, if you build your self-esteem and accept yourself just as you are, you will naturally make healthier life and food choices. So, love your body, treat it well, and work on yourself before you work on your abs. For when you love yourself, we know you will lead a happier, healthier and fuller life.
From: Why Being Fat Is–and Isn’t–all That Why is overt discrimination and prejudice towards fat and obese people still accepted in our country?

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.
--Sir Francis Bacon
Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.
Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack. We give it orders which make no sense.
Change the self-consciousness of a spotlight on the body for the self-confidence of a light radiating from the body.
Women need to celebrate their God-given beauty instead of always trying to be something else.
No object is so beautiful that, under certain conditions, it will not look ugly.
Beauty comes in all sizes, not just size 5.
Joy is the best makeup.
We do not see the world as it is; we see the world as we are.
There were times when I hated my nose...But you grow up and you start to recognize that maybe it wasn't a bad thing that you weren't born Barbie.
just want to open a dialogue...where we can define our own beauty and approve of ourselves. We have to approve of ourselves before anyone else will.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
Bras, panties, bathing suits, and other stereotypical gear are visual reminders of a commercial, idealized feminine image that our real and diverse female bodies can't possibly fit.
