Beauty














Beauty is not about having 
a pretty face.
It is about having 
a pretty mind,
a pretty heart
and a pretty soul :)

Truly Powerful Women


“Truly powerful women 
do not explain 
why they want respect. 
They simply 
do not engage those 
who do not give it 
to them.”

~ Sherry Argov :)

"Sure. We'll be there. Thank you. Congratulations!" :)



She answered me immediately even before knowing the date and venue.
Her answer reflects so much sincerity and warmth.
We're very touched and grateful :) 














Admire


I admire women 
who are effortlessly stylish, 
who laugh easily, 
who are genuinely kind, 
and who tell the truth about themselves :)

To Know All


“Instead of condemning people, 
let us try to understand them. 
Let us try to figure out 
why they do what they do. 
That is a lot more profitable 
and intriguing than criticism; 
and it breeds sympathy, 
tolerance and kindness. 
To know all is to forgive all.”

~ Dale Carnegie :)

Self-Acceptance


“The problem with glorifying 
the concept of self-acceptance
is the fact that 
there are parts of us 
that are unacceptable. 
I think what is more important 
is to love ourselves in a way 
that does not make excuses 
for the things that inhibit 
our ability to be a gift 
to those around us.” 

~ Lauren B. :)

Beautiful


"I want to be beautiful 
Make you stand in awe 
Look inside my heart, 
and be amazed 
I want to hear you say 
Who I am is quite enough 
Just want to be worthy of love 
And beautiful."

~ Bethany Dillion :)

Be Thankful


“Be thankful for what you have; 
you’ll end up having more. 
If you concentrate on what you don’t have, 
you will never, 
ever have enough.”

Quilt


"There's a satisfaction 
in making something 
with your own hands. 
When you make a quilt, 
it's something which is unique... 
it's yours and yours alone. 
Every artist's palette is different." 

~ Mrs Lee S.F. :)

Love


“Love is something that 
both parties need to work hard on. 
(But) I don’t think [a long-distance relationship] 
is something to worry about 
– as long as two people are really in love, 
they would see each other 
even if one lived on the moon. 

~ Christopher Lee, Fann Wong's husband :)

Romantic


“He may not be a 
conventionally romantic boyfriend, 
but everything he does for me 
feels very sincere, 
with the simple motive of making me happy, 
and that, 
to me, 
is very romantic.” 

~ Sonia Sui :)

who love me, 
like my family

Our Love


"A couple will definitely 
encounter obstacles, 
but to stay together, 
we need to use 
our love to grow, 
to support each other 
through thick and thin." 

~ Mrs Oxide Pang :)

Homework


"I believe 
everyone around me 
are my personal 'Buddhas', 
helping me become 
a better person. 
So no matter what 
someone does to me, 
I see it as a test, 
and for me 
to do my homework."

Happiness


"We have been slowly, consistently, willingly, molding to each other. Our love has been a process of learning and choosing selflessness. Our relationship works because we are not comparing ourselves to other couples. We know what makes us happy, we know what healthy love looks like and even though we do not always look like it, we are patiently building it together. We are no standard to imitate—we are just two simple people who want to stick together. And really, if two people are willing to love and grow alongside each other, they will learn the same thing that I have learned: happiness is the growing collection of past moments that are ushering us into the present." 

~ Lauren B. :)

Small Clues


Paying attention 
to small clues 
can literally 
change everything 
that we 
can become 
as human beings :)

Friendship














“Friendship 
is the hardest thing 
in the world 
to explain. 
It is not something 
we learn in school. 
But if we have not learned 
the meaning of friendship, 
we really have not learned anything.” 



~ Muhammad Ali :)

Our Lives













“I never have a clue 
of what is it 
but it must be emotions, 
that is what moves us. 
Whether pleasant 
or strong emotions, 
but something needs 
to move us 
in one way or another 
to leave a trace in us, 
and in our lives" 


~ Ana K. :)

Ourselves














“We should not try 
to stop everything 
from happening. 
Sometimes 
we are supposed 
to feel awkward. 
Sometimes 
we are supposed 
to be vulnerable 
in front of people. 
Sometimes 
it is necessary 
because it is 
all part of us 
getting to the 
next part of ourselves, 
the next day.” 


~ Cecilia A. :)

Self-Love













Self-love 
is being honest about 
who we are, 
knowing who we want to be, 
and being intentional 
about the journey 
from the former 
to the latter :)

Loving Ourselves














Loving ourselves in a way 
that does not make excuses 
for the toxicity that inhibits our ability 
to be a gift to those around us. 
So when someone or something 
bruises our ego 
or discredits us in some way, 
instead of letting that have any power over us, 
realize that we do not have to prove them wrong :)

Someone Loves You















“When someone loves you, 
the way they talk 
about you 
is different. 
You feel safe 
and comfortable.” 



~ Jess C. Scott :)

Truly Love Ourselves











To truly love ourselves 
is to decide 
the type of person 
we want to be, 
to hold ourselves 
to that standard, 
and to invite growth 
with much humility 
and gratitude 
through self-editing :)

Held and Hold












"I held myself back 
for the same reason 
we all often use 
to hold ourselves back. 
It is too late now."

Confidence












"Confidence is not ‘they will like me’
Confidence is ‘I’ll be fine if they don’t’."

Observation














“That’s why I’m talking to you. 
You are one of the rare people 
who can separate your observation
from your preconception. 
You see what is, 
where most people see what they expect.” 



~ John Steinbeck :)

Being Quiet














"One of the risks 
of being quiet 
is that other people 
can fill your silence 
with their own interpretation: 

You’re bored. 
You’re depressed. 
You’re shy. 
You’re stuck up. 
You’re judgmental. 

When others can’t read us, 
they write their own story
—not always one we choose 
or that’s true to who we are."





~ Sophia Dembling :)
