Are you ‘social masking’? How to stop hiding your personality and learn to be yourself

Do you prefer to be inside or outdoors on a sunny day?

Spend time at the beach from morning until night. You’ll feel happy as you bask in the sun and swim in the ocean.

You can lean back in a chair and watch the beautiful scenery change from the intense midday sun, to the evening dusk, and then to the starry night.

Although I do like the sunshine, it can get too hot to stay under the sun for a long time. I prefer being indoors, where I can enjoy air conditioning while playing fun virtual reality games.

What we’d want to have on a desert island

A sunny day should mean a picnic with friends or family. Choose a location that has both the shade of the trees and a scenic view of the city or of nature. The atmosphere should be calming, so you can take a break from the busy city as you spend time with your loved ones.

I would spend the sunny day by going out with my friends, eating a burger with fries, picking up my favourite ice cream, and topping it all off with a relaxing afternoon dip in the pool. At night, I would have a white sauce pasta, and for dessert, vanilla cake with sprinkles.

The best thing to do on a sunny day is to go to the beach. Imagine the warmth of the sun on your body as your feet dip into the calming cool water below.

You can lie on a beach chair with an icy banana and pineapple smoothie, and sunbathe while basking in the ocean’s warm breeze.

The taste of a Hong Kong summer

Shaved ice is the perfect treat on a sunny day: flaky ice, sweet condensed milk, and an assortment of colourful fruit. This frozen dessert definitely makes any summer day more comfortable and refreshing.

My ideal sunny day would be spent making pancakes with maple syrup and melted butter drizzled all over. I would take my pancakes outside and sit under my favourite tree, with a book in hand - and some eating utensils, of course.

Having a meal outdoors is the best way to spend a sunny day. Imagine the sound of children laughing, the smell of freshly cut grass, and the warmth of the sun, while you devour delicious food and spend time with your loved ones. It’s simple to plan, but it can create memories you can cherish forever.

What could make this summer the best one ever?

Staying at home is actually the best thing to do. Think about what it’s like to go outside on a sunny day: within a few minutes, you’re already sweaty and smelly. It is such a pain. Instead, if you stay home, you can enjoy the air conditioning and have a cold can of Coca Cola.

The most important thing about going out on a sunny day is making sure it’s not scorching hot, or too

hazy with pollution.

On a sunny day with the right conditions, I would go out and buy ice cream, because the weather won’t be so hot that it melts my frozen treat. And I enjoy eating cold food in warm weather.
