Ask me if i like to be snow fair or dazzling tan. Sometime ago, i might say snow fair just because i was never fair so perhaps being Snow White for once is a refreshing novelty. But not now. Right now, im loving my sun-kissed skin from paradise Perhentian. After all, dewy, radiant tan people are much more sexier, athletic and attractive. *ahem* Think Taylor Lautner, Megan Fox and Louis Koo. Who needs glowing pale white skin like Rob Pat and Snow White.
In fact, the trend now is tan over fair i think. That is why there are more and more tanning centres, no? I mean it's obvious from all the tanning centres and products that there are more people wanting to get the perfect bronze. As for me, I'm naturally blessed with abundant melanin since birth. Meaning i'm bronze, i' m tan and i'm sun-kissed since birth. And more melanin means more natural protection against skin cancer. hahaha. I dont have to painstakingly lie under the sun for hours (and getting risk of skin cancer), waste money for visits to tanning centres (my friends once ask me if i will accompany them for tanning at one the centres and i thought they were crazy) or buy tanning products (same here, a salesgirl once recommend me tanning lotions and i though she was crazy too).
So right, every time i visit islands or beaches, i do everything else except sun bathing. I personally prefer moon bathing and star gazing more. Like not only because it's not good, i don't fancy getting myself baked till i looked like a baked lobster. Yes, i'm tan and i'm satisfied enough with my healthy skin color. I don't need to look anymore tanner or risk getting burn. Like the angmohs will be enjoying the merciless sun topless or otherwise and i'll be lying under a shade watching them. haha.
However, i suspect the sun was even more generous than usual while i was at Perhentian because despite all the sun block i applied, i still got baked and burn. I remember the 1st day i got back and when i look at myself in the mirror, i was horrified because i saw an arang (charcoal) smiling back at me. And the funniest thing was, i got sun burn at the most uncommon and unexpected area. (go figure yourself, i wont tell. ha!). Tan is beautiful but overly tan and becoming like a charcoal is horrible. And having tan lines and double tone is equally unattractive. (now you know why angmohs rather go topless/nude or people rather put themselves in the tanning machine) Over the next few weeks, my skin sort of went through metamorphosis, only that no butterfly emerge at the end. They itch, peel, shed and regenerate. And finally now, i think they are returning to a more acceptable level. :)
|Who has the most sun-kissed skin here? hehehe|
So, how about you all? You all like to be Taylor Lautner or Rob Pat? Megan Fox or Nicole Kidman? Tan or fair? Faster tell me k. hehe. :)
