I must say that one of the things that I have enjoyed seeing the most since the pandemic has hit is the sight of women wearing masks.
I always people watch whenever I am on the train or bus
I cannot deny that women looked quite beautiful in them because their face were mostly covered and I could only see their eyes/
Requirement going to be lifted soon, it makes me sad
Now that the requirement to wear masks is going to be lifted even on public transport, I think there would not be much chio bu left.
I feel like all the mystery has gone. Without the masks, everyone have gone back to their usual looks, and while some might still look fine, there will not be the mystery of seeing a woman in a mask again and thinking if she is as chio when she removes her mask.
So now that the requirement to wear masks has been lifted, I must admit that I am a bit sad. I had gotten used to seeing women with masks and now I feel like something is missing.
My morning and evening commutes will not be that interesting anymore.
I would definitely miss the mystery and elegance of the masks, and I would also miss the feeling of looking at a girl with her mask on thinking that she is a chio bu.
It doesn’t matter at the end of the day if she is not chio, but as someone who like to people watch, it gives me a certain ‘kick’.
So while I’m also happy that the requirement to wear masks has been lifted, I will surely miss the way women looked with them on.
