Today marked the first day of Spring Break.
I decided to go shopping late in the evening (considering the time I woke up.. *sigh*) to kinda celebrate it. So, I walked into a clothing store and tried out a few pretty dresses. There were some other women busy trying out the clothes as well. Then, I told one of them, "That looks good on you!".
She said thanks and told me how difficult it is for her to find dresses that really suit her since she is short.
"Well, we both are short", she added. I laughed. We both then had a small conversation about choosing the right size of clothes and she later told me that it must be easy for me to find clothes since I am skinny.
No, I am not feeling proud because she told me I am thin.
Neither am I happy because she gave a compliment.
But I just feel amazed at how my body size is considered thin/ skinny here.
Because back in Malaysia, people call me fat and chubby. Always. My size is considered far from being 'ideal'. Haha. Despite what people say, I never bothered to go on a diet just so I could be thinner. I do exercise sometimes, play badminton or just go for a walk, usually when I feel a bit sick. I believe that size is not all that matter. It's my body and I am happy with it. Criticism won't destroy my confidence :)
