|We might look younger during our youthful days, but don't worry, we start looking worse for wear after a certain age..|
I have to say I used to hate looking so young, thanks to my asian genes. From earliest memory, when mum forced me to lie about my age when I was 16, so I can still eat as an under 12 at Sizzler..
When I was 17+, doing prac (as a teacher) for primary school education, I was in a room filled with 11 & 12 year olds and guess what, I was mistaken as one of the year 5 kids... *sigh*
Then, when I turned 25, I still looked underage... 16 I believe. When I finally hit the big 30, I look like I'm in my early 20s. I used to hate it so much and wish I could look older...
but now, being 34, I am quite thankful I still look young, but boy the metabolism has slowed down so much. Big thighs and big hips is such an unusual sight for an asian woman, don't you think?
I used to laugh at friends mums and my own mother... Their photographs showed them looking so beautiful and skinny when they were younger, but after a certain age, BAM.. They shrunk and ballooned out, and on top of that, they all have the same "aunty" haircut!
I guess I've still got a few more years before I start looking like that... Something to look forward to, no??!!! Oh dearie me...
