Chinese New Year (CNY) is around the corner.
As a Chinese tradition, we are preparing gifts to our family members, relatives, friends, colleagues, business associated and others to show our gratitude and also appreciation.
Recently, there is a trend to give hamper as CNY gifts. No doubt the wrapping and the design of the hamper, it’s truly beautiful and attraction.
Sometimes, the design of hamper might look so gorgeous, however when we check the content of the hamper, it might full of junk food, food with over wrapping, less nutrition & quality products, product near to expiry date, product that we don’t need and others.
It make me to further contemplate on the beauty of a person, is it only depend on the external?
Some of us might be only focus on external beauty, we spend a lot of times, hour after hour, a lot of money, hundred after hundred, we buy a lot of skin care products, dozen after dozen, we buy a lot of clothes, jewelry, bag…. to make us to look fabulous!

Honesty, compassion, loving kindness, kind virtues, kind-hearted, generous, joyful, peace, calm, relaxing mind, humble, trust, positive, ever ready helping hand, patient, forgiveness, gratitude, contentment, friendliness, caring, reliability, self-discipline, tolerance, thankfulness…..
Are you gradually build up your inner beauty?

No matter how much effort you put in to preserve your physical beauty, it’ll be growing old and sick in one day. Just look at the photos of the celebrity and beauty queen, “Once upon a time”… you can understand pretty well.
