It doesn’t really rain much in the Philippines but that doesn’t mean that umbrellas don’t get a workout. Just like white people want to be tanned, Filipinos want to be white. I guess most people want to be something they’re not. Pretty much all of the moisturizers for sale here have a ‘whitening agent’. So when the sun comes out and I think it’s a beautiful day day, I walk in the sunshine and look over to the shady side of the street to see the sidewalk crammed with people dodging the sun. It seams that umbrellas aren’t just for tropical drinks.

    Oh yeah I can’t wait to go for this reason. My sister says they are going to love my pasty white skin over there. Bring it on!
