While linguist Anna Wierzbicka reminded us not to underrate the power of language in constituting our emotions, philosopher Wittgenstein also said, "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world." Language always sets boundaries. There are ideologies and hegemony that underlies our everyday language, which in turn set frameworks by which we understand the world. From scientific terminology to swear words, Sonia Wong, poet, will be joined by Li Mei-Ting, and Yvette Wong from Ciu4je5 in a session that both examines the biases and limitations of language and attempts to create something new.

With a one-off sample of their signature physical sunfluff, WULT Beauty stands with girls who are confident to lay it all bare from all the self-love that they have for themselves. Promotion offer and gift are subject to a first-come-first-served basis while stocks last.
