I got a chance to ride in a convertible belonged to my Aunt’s friend, Meng, in Connecticut.
You know how Hollywood loves to feature pretty girls with long hair sitting in their beau’s convertible and their hair flying glamourously in the wind?
Never in real life.
This is what actually happened:
Not only it’s not glamourous at all, with the weather so dry and the sun so hot, my skin tanned very easily.
It’s not like Singapore where the air is humid so there is water vapour in the air to deflect most of the sunlight.
Here, almost all the UV rays get to you.
I really had to lather up on those sunblock.
