A most unassuming lady.

Ever since I moved into my new home, I have been very fascinated with this lady who operates the corner coffee shop nearby. It is also as new as my new house.

Things were pretty quiet each time I went to the shop. But one thing fascinated me. It is this lady. This lady is a natural beauty without any make-up, with the simplest hairdo, always calm and relaxed with a perpetual Mona Lisa smile on her face, speaking ever so softly. Beauty not in looks, but in character. When no hawker wanted to sell anything in her shop, she would be dishing out Hokkien Mee while at the same time taking care of the drinks. Right now, since no one is selling breakfast, she is busy with her fried mee and bee hoon, every morning.

I can't help but observe her presence, for each morning I would have to pass by her shop while taking my grand daughter to her kindergarten.

I am happy for this lady, as business is now picking up.

The character of resilience! It is so pleasant to see such a person. My greatest admiration and respect for her.

It just occurred to me that you now live in a different constituency from the one you used to belong to on the island.

Have you changed your MyCard address and also where you vote yet?

I say this because I don't think your old constituency on the island will miss your vote that much but where you are at right now could need your vote given the demographics of mainland Penang.

I hope I make sense to you.

""This lady is a natural beauty without any make-up, with the simplest hairdo,""" This means she is pretty or beautiful.

""Beauty not in looks"" which part of her body..the earlier sentence said her face.. this means she has a body nothing to admire...??

But she is hardworking....admirable

It must be her face...your greatest admiration
