They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That may be true but often times, people are also looking at your overall physical appearance to call you beautiful. There even others who experience tragic pasts and childhoods because of their appearance. People calling them names or saying something really bad about how they look like that they can carry until they grow old.
From Ugly Duckling to a Beautiful Swan
This is what happened to a 21-year-old Somtam vendor who had always been mocked for her “witch chin.” Wanida Wantakamphu from Nonthaburi was the second Thai to get a total makeover from Let Me in Thailand’s third season. Let Me in Thailand is the Thai version of a popular Korean plastic surgery show.
In the recent episode aired this week, Wanida stunned not only her previous bashers but also the whole crowd when she stepped out onstage bearing her new stunning look.
Before she showed her “new” self, she also said that:
When I look in the mirror, I don’t like what I see. I hate all the bully words. They say I’m a witch with a long chin.
After the surgery, Wanida revealed that she can now smile like she never did before, after going through a series of under the knife procedures which include forehead lift, breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, and most importantly, jaw surgery to fix her face shape, the main reason why people were calling her out.
This show gave me a new life. It gave me a new face. It made me smile like I never did before.
However, it was a bittersweet moment for Wanida since her boyfriend got involved in a car crash, resulting to his death, four days before she revealed her transformation.
I was speechless. I didn’t believe it at first. I thought it was a prank. He accepted me for how I used to look. I loved and miss him very much.
Wanida is going to start her new life in South Korea next year where she has been selected in the Department of Labor’s three-year work program.
