Some say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, what is beautiful for one person may not necessarily be true for another. Some say, beauty is very subjective and I supposed guys and girls view beauty rather differently in certain aspects. How then does one measure beauty?
Malaysia is currently in search of Malaysia's Most Beautiful, a new tv reality show aired on 8TV every Thursday 9.30pm. I watched the first episode and I saw a friend of mine - one of the finalists but unfortunately, she was one of the 3 to be eliminated on that episode itself. Due to the fact that I know her, although not very well, my heart goes out for her as I know she's a smart and nice person. She's an indian lawyer, by the way.
I just felt it is utter crap to search for the most beautiful person to represent Malaysia when most of the time, what I saw in these girls are materialism, glamour and a misuse of their physical beauty, for some. There is only one girl whom I favour out of the whole bunch and I sincerely hopes, she make it. Not just attaining the title of Malaysia's Most Beautiful but, not losing that beauty of hers when she first entered the contest. There are some who can be swept away by the waves of stardom and fame and transformed into a different person. What I don't understand is to put oneself on a pedestal for judgement by the whole country and having to justify oneself when the judges criticises you, is it worth to be beautiful this way? Then always having to live up to that expectation when one has attained the title?
Is there such a person that is caring, kind, forgiving, pretty, selfless, smart and sincere ALL at the same time? What is your definition of beauty?
