Habits Woven into Life
Public welfare is a habit to Patty Tsai since she was little, such from being a student to the present, she feels that this is instinctively what she wants to do, and not merely defines it as “public welfare”. She mentioned what impressed her deeply was the advertisement on “Love is Not Rare Because of You” filmed with Taiwan Foundation for Rare Disorders, she became acquainted with Pei-Jing Liu who played the piano in the advertisement, even though suffering from the griping pain of the rare skin disorder, she still enjoys the joy that music brings to her, and seeing such vitality, Patty Tsai feels proud to say: “She even wrote a book, containing the ’38 bunnies’ created by her!”.

Favorite Fashion Piece
“My mom loves having beautiful looks, and she was the first person to get me involved in fashion.” However, being enthusiastic about reading since she was little, Patty Tsai did not care much back then, but after she grew up, she gradually realized that she cares more and more about dressing up, which she also believes that inner beauty and external beauty are equivalently important. As an adult, she discovered that fashion is a type of interest, she loves reading fashion magazines to see what is going on with the trend, she also appreciates friends around her, as even though she loves looking beautiful, she is weaker in being proactive; she would even study the outfit on friends once and purchase the piece she liked after first seeing one. Patty Tsai believes that fashion is to develop your own style, and to present one’s thoughts and attitude, fashion is dressing up through a stress-free approach. Patty Tsai personally favors wearing leather pants the most, as she feels leather pants can go with anything, formal yet casual. For accessories, she favors earrings from Chrome Hearts, as she finds the bold and characteristic design with dress offering a conflicting sense of beauty is extremely charming. With white brightening skin along with a touch of pink tone complexion, Patty Tsai prefers to go out in light make-up; for skincare tips in spring and summer, especially under UV rays, she said we needs to drink more water, go to bed early and take more vitamins, an adequate amount of sleep is also required for the daily routine, but most important is to have a heart that loves oneself fully.
