I own a straw hat that I wore every single (sunny) day in Phuket. No one gave a damn about me when I wore it. But when I put it on here in KL, I'm guaranteed to draw stares. Not admiring ones either. I get people staring at me as if it's odd to wear a hat to ward off the hot tropical sun.
I wore a toque during the summer we were in Canada. It wasn't my fault it was still snowing in June. No one stared at me either even though they were in shorts and tees.
Do you wear a hat in KL? If you do, can you tell me how to pull it off without attracting so many stares?
