A One Way Voyage........

I live life not the way I want it. I live life the way I decided. Decisions never always reflect what you want. Whether it's a mistake or not, it is the way God wanted it to be. Not known for now, but there is a reason, for I have died once, yet lived again. Be it fraught with upsets, at the end of the road, for as long as I can say "I have not harmed a soul", then it withstood the waves and the journey was perfect.-Falcon116

Ang Puti Puti

Who would have thought that even here in Australia, mga sabong pampa-puti are also available? We went to the Filipino Shop-Sari Sari Store ni Ate Edna and I saw boxes and boxes of sabon papaya...sabon...i can't remember but they all serve the same purpose, to make the skin lighter. If they work, sigurado wala ng pinoy na maitim dito sa Darwin at akoy namakyaw na para sa asawa ko!!!

But does it really work? Apparently it does kasi may mercury daw na kahalo. You don't really turn white, but more of a silverish-whitish mimic of famous & well idolised pinoy actresses/actors.

What's with the white skin versus the dark skin??? I think Filipinos concocted this idea that if you have fairer skin mas maganda ka. If you have dark skin, hindi sosyal ang dating mo. Grabe no? Only from the society of pinoys!!!

Natandaan ko when I went to Pinas mga 4 years ago, I also got sucked into this trend. So when I came back here in Australia, I had with me bottles and bottles of whitening creams of all sorts. For the face, for the armpit, for the arm....also whitening scrubs and soaps...and endless hopes na magiging sosyal din ang kulay ko.

My sister kept on telling me to stop 'cause i'll look like someone selling mangoes in the market daw. To be honest, I ended up giving all those away. Didn't work wonders for me. I may really need to see Michael Jackson's Doctor.

Anyway, nakakatawa lang kung bakit tayong mga pinoy gustong pumuti, samantala yong mga puti bilad ng bilad sa init kahit nag kaka cancer na para lang mag darken yong skin nila. We seem to idolise and appreciate more, the things that we're not, instead of enhancing the features that we have. Ano say nyo?

Basta ako...concentrate lang sa mga kakaning pinoy.........
Kahit hindi sosyal ang itsura...sosyal naman ang sikmura, hahit LIGO sardinas lang.

Yup i'm starting to think about that....My husband is soooo dark...then almost half of his hand got burned by cooking oil several months ago. It's now fully healed but it is sooooo white. I'm thinking, there must be something white underneath him after all....ano kaya????
