My co-worker Cel has an enviable tan. It’s her natural skin color. My husband Sam had commented once that Cel reminds him of a young Tetchie Agbayani. I agree.
We were having lunch once, Cel and I, and she mentioned that one of her older sisters gave her some whitening lotion that she couldn’t wait to try out.
“Whitening lotion?” I said, incredulous. “If I looked like you I’d walk down the beach in Boracay in a two piece swimsuit and feel the envy of everyone spread out on the sand trying to get the tan that I naturally posses!”
And I wonder where it will all come to, whitening stuff for Asian women while caucasians try their darndnest to get a tan.
