white collagen

this is not a product promotion entry... nor cynical entry about certain people's obsession of getting fairer...

this entry is just going to be a plain babbling of mine....

i've been struggling with sleeping disorder lately...but not as bad as before where i only slept after two days being awake...

so last night...i slept quite early..right after Isyak..praying while you're sleepy was seriously...challenging...

due to that early 'knock out'...i was up as early...at 4 am...actually i was already up at 1 am...but successfully forcing myself to sleep back...after several time asyik terbangun.. at 4 am..i finally gave up and woke up...

i carried on with the 'arranging' routine....yeah..i never satisfied with the room arrangement...

and since arranging thingy seems like its going to take forever...i stopped and start surfing the internet...i went through the FB timeline...and surprise to see these ads 'getting fairer product' everywhere... and from that..i can see how obsess people in Malaysia to get fair...

it is not really right for me to speak about this matter...(i am quite fair myself...i mean...quite fair for a Malay)..it is as not right as when the most beautiful people on earth said she rather be just cool than beautiful...simple as that!

that's not the point anyway...i remember a discussion with the lecturer and some student during my ADR meeting...we discuss about how we never happy about ourselves..(theres a term to this that i can't recall)...i was one of the subject we discuss... i am quite tall for an asian female..i am fairer to be just Malay..(and apparently fairer in Launceston...probably due to the weather) i did have issue with certain facilities..like chairs..doors..table counter...and certain other things that is measured base on asian measurement... ergonomic failure i must say...

we discussed aboout skin colour as well...and my lecturer is actually half indian..although she looked perfectly white...once she said she'd actually half indian...that indian figure can be seen automatically...she told us about how obsessed the indian want to be fair where they bleached themselves..and i swiftly respond..'owh..in malaysia..they bleached themselves too'... and she said she just didn't get the point why people try too hard to change their skin colour...

one of the classmates said..'we want to get tan..they want to get fair..simple!'

the conclusion we made that day was...we will never satisfied...the fair want to be tan...the tan want to get  fair...

we always got this idea of...maybe i look good the other way....like if im tanner.. fairer.. skinnier.. chubbier.. etc... etc...

how far its true? it depends on your idea of BETTER..seriously...

*right after the class...i accompanied my friend to choose tan colour for his skin...he said he needs to look great for the mardi gras... because he thought he might look better tan..and all i said was..'this colour make you look like walking carrot and this colour make you look like an alive statue' ..yes..i didn't help much.
