Natural Tan

Sometimes I wonder why people who has a fair complexion goes to the beach and lie under the sun? When most of my countrymen, including me, wants to have that fair complexion.

I have tried whitening lotions too, because I wanted to get fairer skin complexion and I wanted to look beautiful. I sometimes hide from the sun because I am scared I might get darker than I used to be. People from the US and other countries are born white naturally, so they usually hit the beach to get that tan skin color they really, really want. Some people who could afford goes to tanning salons for a spray tan. Some of the famous celebrities here in the Philippines who are half-American, half-German, or half-other nationalities sports a tan instead of their usually fair skin colors for the summer months and gets fair skinned again after summer. It is easy for them I guess because they can afford to visit spas and salons to get their most-wanted look.

But there are people who are naturally tan since birth, so I guess its not hard for them to sport such tanning look.

 

Pink Fridays: Pink ROOM

 

Before and After picture of my room. This pink room used to be mine, but when my brother finished his college degree and went home, I gave him my room and I stayed with my mother instead. But now, I needed my room back so he gave it back.
The above photo is my pink room while my brother was still the one who stays in it. And the below photo is the pink room after we put our things in there.

Important Words You Should Learn

Are you thinking of visiting Thailand? I have been there and yes the country is beautiful and bountiful.

But before I went there, I made sure I am ready. Looking back at my diary, I have jot down different yet simple words you should memorize or at least write down in your notes, they may come handy when you are in Thailand.

These are just some of them:

  • male – krup
  • female – kaa
  • not too spicy please – kor mai phet
  • chicken – gai
  • beef – nyea
  • fish – plaa
  • pork – muu
  • water – nam
  • coffee – ga-fae
  • ice – nam khang

Greetings:

  • hello, good morning – sawasdee
  • how are you? – sabai dee reu?
  • thank you – kop koon
  • never mind – mai pen rai
  • I can’t speak Thai – phoot Thai mai dai
  • I don’t understand – prohd phoot cha-cha
  • May I take a photo? – tai ruup dai mai?
  • Where is the CR? – hong nam yoo te nai?
  • What is this? – nee arai?

Yes, these are the words and greetings I have jotted down in my diary. Some Thailand nationals are not good in speaking or understanding the English language, so you might have a problem when you are there.
