Aishah’s shanshiney smile inspired me to create the above proverb last year in March!  After some time, I have managed to get a photo together with this sweet lady!  Look forward to her gorgeous smile and excellent customer service when you visit the Bishan MRT Station’s ticketing office!

I salute you, beautiful shanshiney smiley lady!

Words of wisdom: Smiles and hearts

A smile is a heart-to-heart communication: it emanates from your heart, radiates on your face, and lights up the hearts of others – Yip Pei Shan

This proverb was inspired by Aishah, the ticketing lady at the Bishan MRT Station, Singapore, who flashed one of the most gorgeous smiles I have seen in my life!  It was definitely the best shanshiney smile of my day, warming my heart and feeling a tickly tingly feeling all the way to my toes!

I salute you, beautiful shanshiney smiley lady!
