Getting tanned

Before and After :)
Everyone commented the same thing that I'm getting darker after coming back from Bhutan. Some even teased me that I have changed into Bhutanese. Colleagues also teased me to get PR or citizenship there since I love the country so much haha...

Indeed, my skin color had changed tremendously after first half of my visit. The weather was cold in Thimphu, however the sun shone strongly in the afternoon and I didn't apply any sunblock. 

The peak of my skin tanning was on my trip to Riku's village in Gelephu as we had to walk and take boat under the evening sun for 2.5 hours. There was where I got my souvenir from (dark skin) :D

I still remembered during first half of my trip there. I could hear Bhutanese called me 'chilip' (Bhutanese word to call foreigner) or Japanese when they saw me. But after that, it was the other way around.

When I visited Bumthang, one of my new friends confessed that he thought I was the Bhutanese while Riku's sister, Lachhe, was the guest from Singapore! Yalama!!! I was laughing when hearing that as I found it funny la. Hahaha.... ;D

However, that was usually the sign that I was traveling and not just staying at home hehehe... and I was proud of my tanned skin :) Dunno how long it will take until I can get back my fair skin color again ^^

They tease you as Bhutanese owing to you looking similar to Bhutanese but irrespective of your tanned.
