We are still on appearances. The third of this trilogy.

You see, for us folks living in tropical Asia, we are naturally tanned. Comes with the territory – we get so much sun.

However we have quite a few European Caucasians friends who come visit during winter seasons there. Like many others who visit this part of the world, they would arrive looking are pale and almost whitewashed.

But before they can get their obligatory tan under the sun, by the beach or the resort swimming pool, they will be looking to get their hands on the best tanning lotions possible to hide under!

Now why is it that those of us who live in this part of the world turn to whitening agents and hide from the sun…..?

It’s a funny world we live in.
