The United States vs. The Philippines

There are numerous social differences between the two countries, but this one just makes me laugh... we all want what we don't have:

In the United States, this product is a hot seller in the stores! Many women (and some men) strive for the best, darkest tan. They think it's sexy!

In the Philippines, this product is a hot seller in the stores! Most Filipino women strive for the whitest skin tone possible. The whiter your skin, the sexier you are!

The grass is always greener...

(By the way, is it Thursday for anyone else reading this?? Because it's Thursday for me!! I'm a day closer to the weekend!)

It's Thursday now (8:43am) ... but you are probably heading for bed at the end of your Thursday already!

Whitener and Tanner opposites really show the differences. I guess I need to move to the Philippines and look ultra sexy with my pale white skin! ha!!!

I guess you'll come back very pale white and very, very fit. I'm glad to see you have time to fit in the gym everyday. I'm very proud of you!!! Post your gym progress for us. Miss you! Christy
