It had been raining straight for days in the past week. I should not be deterred by it, but seriously it was raining cats and dogs and I didn't think an umbrella would even keep me dry. Staying indoor for days made me sick - not literally.
Finally the sun shines! I can have my vitamin D! Isn't it strange that everyone here thinks tanned is beautiful and in Asia, they think as pale as a corpse is gorgeous.
One of my aunts, she was crazy (not literally). She liked to compare, with me, to see who had fairer complexion. She worked in an air-conditioned room. I was a student then, running back and forth to school everyday under the hot sun, what do you think? I looked like a piece of burnt squid. Well, she always ended up feeling happy after showing me her arms.
Anyway, it was a beautiful sunny Sunday, I was strolling in Hyde Park right in the CBD. This place was usually packed with tourists getting their photos taken. Where were they? I hope it was not because of the economy.
