The Real Beauty

When SIL was still here for a vacation she told us that her friends in G.B. love her skin more than theirs because the English people love their skin tanned. They don’t want the pale white skin which is very common to them. My SIL is a beautiful morena and her skin fits her looks with deep-set eyes which are always mistaken for an Arab descendant just like my husband. She maintained her Filipina skin because her English friends uses the best tanning lotion just to have a skin like her because they want to be as pretty as she is. We laughed at her story because here in the Phils. almost everybody wants to have fair complexion and they will do everything or buy expensive creams just to be as whiter as possible. 

I think it depends on how you see yourself because a person doesn’t have to change anything in her if they’re confident of what they have. We should not concentrate on being fairer or prettier because looks isn’t all in life. There are far more important things in life that we should look into besides being beautiful.


Sweet Cravings

Ruth was asking me this morning my favorite RR cake and I told her that my first love is chocolate mousse. I know she’s planning something for my birthday because I caught her doing something in their desktop computer. She’s also taking notes of some menu she’s planning to cook. The little boy is counting the number of days before Christmas but she’s counting the days before my birthday which is easy because she only deducted 4 days from it. I really don’t know what she’s up to but we continued to talk about cakes and I end  up drooling for RR’s Cookies and Cream we had for Mom’s birthday.

I know I’m on diet but today is a weekend and weekends are free days for me so I’m allowed to eat anything I want including this cake I posted here. I’ll just look for the right diet pills for women if my natural diet plan failed to control my weight after eating the cake. Sometimes we have to let go of our diet regimen and give in to our cravings. It’s not that bad I think because it’s still early and I can burn whatever I’ve eaten. It’s fine as long as I don’t give in to my sweet cravings at night because for sure I’ll gain weight again.
