18-12-2010 You want it dark, I want it fair


Went down KL 3 days ago
and finally met up with a friend of another friend.
Both are from Amsterdam, Holland.
Suddenly this new friend of mine
reminded me of a question that I always question myself
Should I go with what others want me to be?
or
should I go with what I want myself to be?

Option (1)
-Dark-
Most caucasian friends that I have met told me in person that
they like me with darker skin
that will make me more asian-like
and they think tan skin looks good~
and sexy too!

Option(2)
-Fair-
I myself and other asian friends
prefer fairer skin.
Whenever I got back from trip
I feel so bad looking at myself in the mirror
because of the tan that I have got...
We Chinese believe that fairness can make one looks better.
"一白遮三丑"
Direct translation is "One degree of fairness can cover up three degree of ugliness"
lol~

So,
what should I do?
Fair or dark?
Oh gosh! I hate dilemma!!!
Can anyone tell Mama please?


XOXO

  1. I don't really agree with the chinese saying "One degree of fairness can cover up three degree of ugliness"

    Tan/dark skin can cover up lots of "cacatness" like scar or pimple haha

    But still.. Being fair, I vote for fairness!

    I used to wanna get tan but now, being fair is awesome!

  2. fair + dark = (in the middle is) brown.
    vote for brown.
