How a Perm can change the world.

As I sat in the staff canteen eating my plate of veggies and barley; I saw a man sitting at the adjacent table.

Tony 2

His picture above can show the features that drew my attention. His curly hair, his wrinkle-less skin and his smile. I had to ask, “do you perm?”  The unbelievable answer that came, was, “yes.”

Not a word that we shared would be understood by either of us, as he speaks only Cantonese and I do not. But the inspiration that came from meeting him taught me valuable lessons.

Beauty is for everyone. And healthy skin comes if you sleep well, eat veggies, and are happy.

Tony works in the laundry and no matter if the towels are piled higher than the ceiling, his smile will remain. He is 51 and born the year of the Ox. He told me that he believes that his skin is so good because he is good. Wow. I am overwhelmed. If only a perm could do that to the rest of the world.
