Black or White

3 AUG 2009: Look around you…did you notice that some of your friends have suddenly become tanner though they didn’t go for sun tanning? Well, I have few friends who did. There was a tanning studio opened at Mid Valley months back that my friends have signed up for their package, where each tanning session (15-20 min) cost around RM30++ excluding the lotion. Anyhow, I shall feel glad that I don’t need such service, as I’m not a fair person myself.

The elderly always say that “Fair skin can cover 3 ugliness” and does this still applicable nowadays? Anyhow, I’m still seeing lots of beauty products for fairer skin, but those are mostly targeting on ladies. I couldn’t help but wonder whether ladies always want a fairer skin, and guys like a tanner skin color? Or it’s a matter of personal preference?



So ladies and gentlemen, what’s your preference on skin color (For yourself and your partner)?

Tell your friends to sign up for Nirvana's burial package too as the more they tan, the faster they will arrive NV at Semenyih! Maybe I should blog about skin cancer victims since Michi sees them all twice weekly. Too fair guys look like Ipoh white chicken! Am I fair btw?

William: Fair and flawless skin? Hm...bet everyone wish to have flawless skin though. :)

aaronng88: Wow, giant umbrella and spf100? Did you meet anyone of those before?

pikey: I actually asked about it, but they said it won't cause any bad on skin as long as you use a proper lotion and do it within the time limit. Not sure how true is it.

Danny: No need la. I think the "超級白" you already look good enough. Keke. Bet people doesn't like to see a black chicken dancing on stage lo

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

mangO: Ask him to suntan around the office. We have a lot of spaces for him. Beside that small fountain maybe. :)

SK: Agreed with what you said. And I think skin color gotta match with your personality also lo.

Grandma Twilight: Huh, I'm actually quite tan also wo. You are nor cursing me hor, hehe. I think you are quite fair lo...but not till like ipoh white chicken la.

Chris said...

My skin also fair, need to get sun tan n change a new image. haha..

Evann said...

Huh? There's a tanning salon in KL? Are they being intentionally dense? I fail to see the need for it in a tropical country.

Many say that I'm a tinge too fair, but I bed to differ. I think I'm dark enough. And I would love my partner to be tall, dark and handsome. Think TVB actor Kevin Cheng. :D

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

Chris: Cannot imagine if you get tan le. Let us see2 ya.

Evann: Yeap, there's 1 in MV. Just apposite California Fitness. Mayb you can go up there someday to take a look.
