I actually don't know if this is the case all over China or just some parts, but I've seen it mentioned in a lot of places.

Don't let the sun catch ya

Don't let the sun catch ya

The facekini was invented as protection against the many jellyfish along the Chinese coast, but the women quickly learned that is was also excellent for not getting a tan. Light colored skin has traditionally been considered the prettiest in large parts of Asia, so the facekini was godsend for women who wanted to stay traditionally pretty while also enjoying trips to the beach.

Today facekinis are mostly used by the older generations. Younger Chinese people don't get the hoha about light skin.

Office Pet

Office Pet

In China you can make a living just from being white. Just sit around at an office/meeting/bar/you name it and be white, all because white people are pretty rare and exotic in China.

These people are often referred to as "pets" because they are told what to do and how to dress, but have no real purpose other than to hang around and just exist, yet cost money.
