Fat in Japan
Good morning! It's 12:33 here and yes that means soon late lunch for me! I have no idea what to make but we will see what the fridge might bring!
Also, when I went trough some blogs this morning (5 minutes ago or so) I took notice of an entry of a girl that said that she had lost all her confidence in herself since someone called her fat in Japan. It's sad but the truth is that it's socially acceptable in Japan to call anyone fat. Not too good for the self-confidence there ey?
Let me explain closer! It's like when most of us western go: Hey how have you been? Long time no see! Okay not really but if you than instead said: Hi! Long time no see! Heya I did not recognizance you there since you grown so fat! <--- that is totally okay.
Sounds crazy I know but if some had a chance to call me an EU size 38 fat they would.
I have no idea why it's accepted to call anyone fat there when most people in Japan act so nice and polite most of the time. (When most think of Japan they think of bowing, being polite, so on, yes?)
Here if someone said that to my face I would laugh and I know quite a bit of people who will punch you in the face. Girls, if someone call you fat in Japan, don't let it effect you. You are NOT fat.
It's enough as it is with today's model ideal. Sides, what is so beautiful with looking like a skeleton? Where in the world is that attractive? No I am not saying this since I'm a girl with curves.
Don't think fat, don't think thin: Think beautiful. What is beautiful for you? Where do you want to be?
Okay, I'm going to go and eat a muffin now and watch some TV (Ohh TOP CHEF is on)♥
