Tanned

XJ's skin are tanned. At birth, she was actually fair but I do not know why suddenly along the years, she became tanned.

Left is mine and right is XJ's hand

Look how dark she was !

She always said she is a 'Malay girl' (ma lai mui )

My happy little girl
One day, she saw me applying some hand lotions. She wanted some and while applying, she asked ......

XJ : Mummy, is there any lotions to make our skin white (Fair)
Me : Got.....
XJ : BUY FOR ME ! I WANT ! I WANT !

Hahaha.........I never expected that she actually worries about her complexions. Silly girl.....

    1. No No.....I can't spoiled her like that. She is still young to use such chemical laden products. So have to wait till she is older (maybe in her teens) , then she can pamper herself a little bit with my supervision. haha

    1. Basically, she learned this from school whereby they have pictures of 3 persons with different skin tones and they need to differentiate what races they are.

  15. I think school students tend to be tanned due to outdoor activities.

    I think I only turned fair around 17 and 18 years old. I was shocked when people commented that I was very fair, because I never thought of myself as fair before that...
