I just realized by now one of the factors why Filipinos' mentality of beauty connoted white skin, blonder hair & blue eyes. It must be because of Barbie!
Yeah the one we grew up with believing she was the epitome of beauty. However, I wondered why I didn't get too fond of it. I remembered playing with it once in a while but unlike other kids my age who couldn't go anywhere without it.
What's wrong with Barbie?
Nothing right? She's perfect. Little did I know that I was not looking for this kind of beauty.
That I realized just last night when I saw 2 of my colleagues carrying a present from our Japanese guest.
I got too fascinated with it so I ended up taking a lot of pictures.
They are now displayed in the reception area of our office. Some colleagues cringe but some smile & get amazed at the sight of them.
Aren't they pretty? In their own way?
I like the demure one, the one in the middle. She looks like the a really dignified, demure & traditional Japanese woman.
Go on.. you can stare.
