I think it is hard for non-Asian people to understand WHY Asians carry umbrella in sunny day or always walk in Shadows. Haha, well, because Asian girls hate getting tanned and love to look White (In general). 一白遮三丑, a very famous Chinese saying explains that... if you look white, it is unlikely you will be ugly.
so, there is a new hilarious beach trend (Picture 2)in Asia. LOL.. I think that goes too far, I will never be able to enjoy the water in that suit.
On the other hand, if you are amazed by how young Asian always look, this might be one reason.
The reason for me to do crazy things to avoid Sun light (Even in Winter or Indoor, yeah I wear hat and sun blocks indoor sometimes ) is not cuz I try to look WHITE. I actually love tanned skin, however, I have learnt long time ago.. 15 mins direct sun exposure or more would make my skin looking older. I want to look forever Young, lol. Since I have that mind set in me, whenever my skin get exposed to sun for more than 5 mins, I "mentally" feel it is burning...(Crazy!)
I have not carry umbrella in sunny days for almost 10 years. I would normally just wear sunblocks and hat. However, lately I read a book about how harmful sunblock is to skin, I decide to switch back to my Asian habit... Wear an umbrella in Sunny days, and It has to be a pretty one!
I always admire 18th century European dress, hat as well as their pretty royal parasol. I want a similar Royal look parasol without these laces edges swinging crazily. I can not handle these "intensively"-cute stuff on myself.
