情人眼里高一D

Mum got better and cooked her meals yesterday before I can stop it. Well, I think she buay tahan the food I cook lah. Haha. She went to work today and I will bring her see specialist tomorrow at SGH. Hope everything will be fine and thanks for all your concern. =)

Recently I caught a HK drama 情人眼里高一D(pronounced in Cantonese). I think it also meant “beauty lies in the eyes of beholder”. I was enjoying it until episode 6 then I realised it’s already the final. It’s the first time I watched a short series HK drama but standard wasnt compromised. It was starred by 王祖蓝, 黄宗泽, 阮小仪 and 徐子珊.

The story is very similar to Japanese’s Handsome Suit movie.

In Handsome suit, the male lead will transform from a supposedly “ugly” man to a handsome, dashing young man when he wore the handsome suit. I typed “ugly” in inverted commas because I dont feel they’re ugly at all. Alright, perhaps they arent good-looking, that’s all. If I remember correctly, the true self will not be revealed unless hot liquid was poured on him, and of course, when he removed the suit.

Whereas in 情人眼里高一D, the male lead will transform when he ate the “transformation” chocolate but effect only lasts for 24hours and he cant transform until another 24hours later. 王祖蓝 is the “ugly” vegetable seller while 黄宗泽 is the handsome singer. 阮小仪 is the “ugly” female lead who acted as 黄宗泽’s assistant and the pretty one was starred by somebody else whose name I dont know(she’s not popular). 徐子珊 is the popular singer who fell in love with the handsome 黄宗泽 after he was discovered to be a singer but despised him when he transformed back into his old “ugly” self.

Another similarity was there’s another pretty lady in the story who likes the male lead, despite his “ugly” looks and all. But she was disappointed when all that matters to the male lead is her beautiful face. So she also transformed into a “uglier” girl so that he can learn to appreciate her inner beauty too.

I dont think I can ever understand her troubles since I’m never beautiful. Lol. Hmm…but I can try and “imagine” lah…it’s true that it’s not healthy if a guy only sees you as a pretty vase or prize. *shakes head* Bad..bad.

There comes the climax in 情人眼里高一D when 王祖蓝 finished his special chocolates and he thought that’s the end of his dream – being a star, a singer because nobody can accept a handsome singer who suddenly turned so “ugly”. At that critical moment, he was given another chance – a special chocolate that will transform his looks forever and ever.

But he didnt take it because he felt he will lose himself forever and 失去自我. Finally he abandoned his dream and got together with 阮小仪 who was the pretty girl in disguise and lived happily ever after.

If it’s you, will you take the special chocolate?

Both movies appraised the quote “beauty lies skin deep” and not to lose oneself in external, superficial beauty. I second that too, not to be obsessed with the outer layer of skin and it’s the heart that counts more. I dont mean looks arent important but they’re not as important as the internal. However, to see the prism from another angle, it’s merely another layer of skin, isnt it? Changing the face and body doesnt change the heart so why does it matter? And if you judge another person just because he/she re-do his/her face and body, wouldnt you be as superficial to judge him/her on that?

Now, that’s controversial. I would say it really depends on what you want and you just have to be responsible for any decisions you make.

If I’m 王祖蓝 in the show, I will go ahead and transform my looks forever. Why?

Perhaps because it’s a short story with a short time span, or perhaps the emotional drama development between 王祖蓝 and 阮小仪 wasnt very intense, I cant feel he actually loves her very much. On the other hand, I can feel his strong passion towards his dream – to be a singer. If I’m him, young and single with a dream which is just within my grasp, I might just take take the chance because the only way to achieve the dream is to have good looks other than good voice.

Moreover from the very start, 阮小仪 already saw his real looks so I think it’s not very difficult for her to accept his new face. It’s not as if he faced her with the handsome face for years until he revealed the real “ugly” face. That will be much harder to accept and swallow.

On the other hand, if I’m ME, now, as Fion Lim, who is given a chance to just consume a piece of chocolate and turn into some beautiful star, e.g Michelle Reis etc forever, I will not take it.

Because I’m afraid of the risk which might change everything I hold dear now.

There will certainly be more privileges to enjoy if I have a prettier face but I believe that also brings more trouble too. I might get more attention from the male population, more suitors, suitors who are richer, of better qualities, treat me much better like queens etc. Or the more exaggerating scenario will be the new face might be the new born star, shooting movies and recording albums. The possibilities are endless. And what that means? Yes, I will definitely earn more money and have more suitors despite the married status. All this creates complications.

Complications that dearie probably wont like? Haha.
Maybe he might get inferior, in turn more possessive, bad-tempered etc. It might hinder our relationship.

Next up, I’m not a saint too. I cant guarantee nor swear that with all this complications and the chain-effects, I will stay 100% the way I am. It’s simply not possible or rather, highly attainable. All this accounts to risk that might jeopardize my current wonderful life with my dearest hubby. And why would I want that? When I’ve already have the world? =) There’s nothing more in life that I wished for in my relationship with hubby. Like I said, another climax might be when we create a baby. But it’s only a climax when we both have the mindset to be daddy and mummy. Now the time is still not ripe. =P

If I have only 1 wish now, I will hope my mum stay healthy all the way without any illness bothering her.

And if I have another wish, I hope both my brothers can be more matured, sensible and dont need me to worry.

That’s, my perfect life.

Not a perfect nose or big eyes.

Disclaimer: I can accept minor enhancements to myself of course, just not changing the whole face/body until I’m not recognizable! Better skin, slimmer arms etc are very okie. Kekeke. However, personally, I will not take plastic surgery, simply because

1) I dont need them to make myself feel better about myself

2) Pain lah

3) Dont like people saying I’m plastic. =P

But if you accept the above 3, go ahead and do it. I’m not against it except towards people who simply lied blantantly and said they did not undergo it. ZzZzz

Just be prepared to accept whatever consequences. =)
