The Curious Case Of The Missing Sun Tan

Legend has it that my Great Grandmother fooled around with a slave coming off one of the many tall ships to pull into port up in Northern Ireland back in the day. This is said to explain why my Grandfather Billy and my mother are so tanned.
For this reason, I was confused last night when Kinki commented on how white and pale I am!!
So off to the beach of Batu Ferringhi we went to prove her wrong! Matthew still had a good base tan from his last trip a few months back....I did not....
Even after spending the day by the beach, the Gods conspired against me and clouded over the skies all so I could not prove Kinki wrong....
When I saw Kiniki later on, much to her uncontrollable pleasure, I was sporting some very destinct red tan lines. Now I know what you are thinking for Kinki thought it too. In Ireland we don't call what you would call sunburn a sunburn. To us, you go to the beach to catch a colour. Red is a colour. So I was not burnt, I merely had caught some colour.
In the evening, we were all a little tired so we took it easy and headed off to see 2012 in the cinema. To tell you how good the movie was, Matthew slept for the most of it!!
Afterwwards we said our goodbyes to Kinki. It was great to spend time with her despite how much she loves to make fun of me but I will get my revenge when we meet up again over in India with some of the others.
