  17. 18. In our opinion: <ul><li>Michele Ch’ng Chiau Woon: </li></ul><ul><li>In my opinion , I don't really agree with cosmetic surgery. What is natural will always be the best. We always know that someone who steps out with confidence will always be the one who sparkles and shines on the stage of life. It's about how you look at it. Everyone has a special part. Even if you’ve got a pair of small eyes, nothing's bad about it. It's yours, it belongs to you . Start learning to love yourself before you want others to love you. </li></ul>
  18. 19. <ul><li>Yap Hong Li: </li></ul><ul><li>In my opinion, I strongly disagree with people who seriously consider cosmetic surgery. A lot of people dream to have a perfect body. In wanting to achieve it, they make irrational decisions without thinking of the consequences of cosmetic surgery. Although people know that it brings disadvantages to themselves but they still want to do it. What is the reason? People now are more caring about their look. They want themselves to be more attractive than others. For me, appearance is not that important. What is important to me is, I am who I am. So be confident, there’s only one of you in the whole universe. </li></ul>
  19. 20. <ul><li>Teo Chee Yong: </li></ul><ul><li> Most people would agree that an individual's personality and character are more important than how that person looks on the outside. However, that well-recognized fact does not minimize the importance of outward appearance. How a person looks can have a direct impact on how they feel about themselves. People, who don't like the way they look, can feel self-conscious and lack confidence. So, if you are not satisfied with your appearance , just have the right attitude to accept the outer you and encourage the inner confident </li></ul>
  20. 21. <ul><li>Yap Yi Qian: </li></ul><ul><li>In my opinion , I disagree that a cosmetic surgery is good for a person. I think that cosmetic surgery is not good because It can only change your outward appearance but does nothing for the inner person which is far more important. I think it is only a waste of time and money. We are the same person but only the outward appearance has changed and it is useless for us. If one wants to change anything, he or she must change their heart into a lovely , hopeful and cheerful heart and practice good behavior in our daily life. As a conclusion , I hope that you’ll trust that “ a person is most beautiful when he or she has a healthy life and good habit.” </li></ul>
  21. 22. <ul><li>Lee Wan Ling: </li></ul><ul><li>After doing the research on cosmetic surgery, I found that cosmetic surgery is a very disgusting and scary procedure. Although cosmetic surgery involve only a little part of your body, but it is so disgusting and bloody! Why do they treat themselves like this? Is it because they want to be more beautiful? There are some who are beautiful and slim but posses an evil heart; in contrast, they are some who are not so beautiful but they’ve got a nice heart. Therefore, you can choose to be either a beautiful but bad person or a average looking person but with the kind heart as the saying goes,&quot; beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. In my conclusion, I think that being natural is beautiful! As the result, don't waste your money on the operation that may bring risk to your body. Be natural and clothe yourself with virtues which are priceless. </li></ul>
