A perfect reply for a rather unwarranted comment indeed.

A netizen recently told Hannah Yeoh, who is the deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister that she was "rather pretty" and should use lipstick.

He said by using lipstick, she would "look like a minister".

The post has as expected since been deleted, but not before it went viral and received numerous brickbats from other netizens.

This was the original post:

And in reply, Hannah Yeoh, who is also the Segambut MP, had this to say:

Her reply has since received plenty of praise from netizens.

Some praised for putting "sexist males" in their place, while others urged her to continue with her good work.
