All's Fair in Vietnam's Lady

The story of “All’s Fair in Vietnam’s Lady” is about an old Vietnamese lady, who is become an English teacher at Vietnam for the first time she arrived at Vietnam. She realized that she needed some more formal attire for maintain her respectabily so that she tourist to Ben Thanh Market for search of some cheap clothes. Then she found shop selling kharkis and asked the sales girl how much they cost. But the sales girl praise to the lady because she pretty. The lady blushed because the sales girl was praised her. The lady not too shocked because the sales girl wasn’t the only one to asked like that she always been rather self-conscious about her beautiful face. She was the one who is used sunblocked that was weaker than SPF 50 so she’s not afraid with sunlight not like other ladies to stay away from the sunlight.Someone  demanded to know what kind of special diet she was on to maintain such a complexion. In elevators people comes towards me and then they compare their own skin with mournful sigh of den. Sunscreen is too expensive but Vietnam girls solve the problem by use it to protecting themselves from UV rays. Vietnam’s girl wearing a coverings, including hats, gloves and face-masks that makes them look like motobike-driving. Moreover, some of Vietnam’s girl go to spas for whitening, tough exactly how this was accomplished she bever did find out. She noticed that who is wearing a skin cream will looked deathly ill more than anything else. It doesn’t  a genius to discover the moral in this. That people think what is desire is expensive and difficult to maintain. Not to take seriously about this thing.
