Home Feature PUMA Social Playmates

So far, the people who saw me after my honeymoon said I was too dark. My mother thinks I look like a Chinese-Indian child. Even before going to Maldives, I was the tannest among my siblings. Now, they call me charcoal. :(

Am I that dark??

I’ll admit one thing: my current foundation shade doesn’t match my new skin tone, so I’ve been going without makeup (save for false eyelashes) for the past few days. I’m not going to buy a new set of makeup because I’m pretty sure I’ll get fairer in a week or two.

Anyway, I love how my skin colour pops when I wear white. White always looks good on tan people, don’t you think? I’m wearing a Puma white polo tee with white denim skirt and my favourite Puma ballet flats in this picture.

This was taken during the Puma Play Bus event at Studio Lounge two days ago. What I like about this Play Bus concept was the games and activities around and on the bus. Here’s me attempting to be a Kungfu Fighter. Which totally failed so now you know why Puma asked me to be a Foodsnapper instead. :P You can watch the video here.

As someone who reads your blog and who’s dark skinned, I don’t understand the need to point out how tan you’ve become and how that’s implied as a bad thing. As someone who is pretty well known by Malaysians, you have the opportunity to change the general Asian perception that fair skin is superior. While you may view your post as harmless, for us who have been constantly discriminated by our skin colour, it’s just feeding into our society’s mentality that desperately needs to change. Also if you really don’t want to be dark, may I suggest staying out of the sun?

I agree with you that society needs to change the perception that fair skin is superior. As noted from my article, I like the shade of colour I have now (read para 3).

I’m uncertain if you are offended by the overall article or by para 1, but I want to point out that I was merely disagreeing with my mother’s opinion in para 1, as many of us know it is hard to change the older generations opinion. Something I’m trying to make her understand.

Sorry if I have offended you in any way, but that was not my intention.

I can’t see any difference in your skin colour, a little maybe but not drastic. Enjoy your week ahead.

Bangsar Babe November 19, 2012 - 9:50 am

Thanks Kash! You too. :)
