Contest to unveil beautiful souls.

Something interesting I read...A beauty contest which the judges don't care about a perfect figure or face. What they're looking for the quest is "Miss Beautiful Morals", the contestant who shows the moral devotion and respect for her parents. This happened in Saudi Arabia where the idea of the pageant is to measure the contestants' commitment to Islamic morals. It's an alternative to the calls for decadence in the other beauty contests that only take into account a woman's body and looks. The winner won't necessary be pretty, they care about the beauty of the soul and the morals.

In the western-style formals, the external beauty might be pleasant to the sight but the beauty of the mind and heart is yet to be seen. I have to agree to these statements written by the English Poet...."The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to the heart - the place where love resides." This applies to the Miss Beautiful Morals of the Saudi Arabia.

Hi sister,

I think you are right. They should have one for men and I call them as.... A Rounded Man with a balanced life. I do not qualify coz I am too naughty a man.

Well, Mr. Robert Foo, I think you are a very caring man, with a naughty streak!

I love this contest... I am tired of the beauty contests where the person who wins is a blonde with big boobs. Give me a break, half the time they open their mouth and the words don't make sense.

Anyway - thank you for sharing about this wonderful cultural event in Saudi Arabia.

Hi LMc1381,

When you called me Mr Robert Foo, I feel you are 10 feet away. Call me Robert, you would be nearer by half. Or please call me dear, we are almost skin distance apart. Right my dear?
