"Somebody Gonna Get A Hurt Real Bad"

RUSSELL Peters is going to be in this part of the world some time soon. Yes, the bloody Canadian comedian who picks on his audience for a laugh. Tickets for his show were snapped up within three hours when it was up for sale last week here in Kuala Lumpur. I hear Dubai still holds the record for having sold all tickets within eight minutes or so ? It's crazy how people would pay so much and risk themselves being made fun of by this man on World Wide Web. 


Just the other day, I got a call from a dear friend. I mean, I love this woman to bits, don't get me wrong. 
"Jaya, do you know of anyone who'd want to sell their Russell Peters tickets ? I'm willing to pay any amount. Money is no issue," she said. 
Coming from her, it's quite acceptable (because she was enquiring about something to a friend) although it seems pretty much like the case of random idiots who call the media office to complain about a small fire in their backyard when they'd be better off calling the fire department instead. They're even rude about it like...
"Have you called the fire department, sir?"
"No, it's your job to call". 
Really. How IS that ?


So Russell tickets are sold out. I mean, they're completely wiped out and I know of many Malaysians who are actually crossing over to Singapore to catch him in that tiny city-state as the man is making his presence there too. Despite everything, I must admit that Russell does make me laugh out loud although his jokes can be repetitive sometimes and they make me want to kick him hard in the balls at other times. Some jokes have that kind of aggressive-with-laughter effect on me (hmm...in a nice way, methinks) and Russell's satirical genre which focuses mostly on racism, multi-culturism, stereotypes and some bit of sex is just crazy for lack of a better word at this hour of the night. 


I'd be sorry if I don't catch him here at my shore, so thanks to a real sweetheart who'd like to remain anonymous (because this person really deserves a mention here), I've got two tickets myself! I don't know where Mich and I would be seated in that show, but considering that we are such a striking couple, we could very well be the bull's eye in the Russell target. I'd assure you one thing though. If he ever picks on us, I'm going to cry out loud or rather wail and create some drama just for the heck of it. I did learn method acting after all. It'll be really interesting to see how Russell reacts to something like that :)

  1. Don't wail, Jaya! You'll annoy the rest of the audience for spoiling the show! Just call him a "Big Silly Man", if he picks on you. If you say it right it will sound funny.

  2. He’s quite the funny guy & considering his brand of humour, it’s not surprising he’s from multi-cultural Canada!
    Enjoy the show & if he targets you, give it right back to him!

  15. Hope you have fun, i do like Russel Peters, he is always funny, hes done a few movies too. But mainly playing comedians. Now you have tempted fate by saying he will pick on you, he surely will.
    The youtube videos were so funny, like it when he thought they were going to take him to a torture camp lol.

  17. Comedians are so intelligent they can easily get jokes for every answer you throw back at them. Poor David and Vickey.

Healing With Essential Oils

OILS and I go a long way. My mom used a lot of oil on me, growing up. As a teenager, baby oil was my go-to daily face moisturiser. I didn't know then what I know now about synthetic oils but it worked for me. In my early 20s, I fell in love with pure essential oils. I was introduced to the world of Culpeper during work. Then, I was gifted a 50ml bottle of jojoba base oil with two precious bottles of 10ml rose and geranium essentials oils courtesy of Culpeper. I was set for life and I've never looked back ever since. 

Over the years, I have depended on and dwelled solely in beauty oils. Recently, I've started learning about healing through essential oils. It's been a huge eye-opener for me. Essential oils are just not skin deep, they're simply so much more than that. The potent substances extracted through steam distillation from various shrubs, flowers, roots, skin and seeds could have incredible healing powers when used with sensitivity, respect and knowledge. It i…

The Fenty Foundation

I'm breaking the silence for you, Blue Grumpster, with a foundation review, though I'm afraid that Fenty Beauty may not have that cool, sarky blue shade that you are. I can only hope that you're yellow - like me because, let me tell ya, there's a whole lot of delicious, warm shades in that collection of 40 colours. 



So, I've been wearing this stuff for a few days, presenting myself in various, albeit, tropical weather conditions. And, here's what I think. 

Light and non-greasy. Well, it's soft matte. In fact, I expected it to be dry, and flaking off of my skin by midday, but it doesn't. It's light enough for me to gradually build in the kind of coverage I'm looking for, and more importantly, the foundation stays - on my skin, at least. I don't even need to set it with powder, and I love how it refuses to dislodge from my skin, even after a massive sweat session. Truth is, this is probably why I think it's good for me; I'm always sweati…

Hello 2017!

At least this update comes (way) before the first anniversary of my last post. I can live with that. This blog receives a timely jump-start every time I think it's not going to make it. But looking back, I've posted annually since 2010. That isn't too bad considering how I had created it out of complete boredom. So, that can only mean one thing; I've been busy. 

Freelance work was fun for as long as I wanted it but it also made me feel like a hippie. I had too much time on my hands, a wandering mind and a bad neck. That wasn't good, to say the least, but I did enjoy the evenings outdoor, discovering new paths in the quiet forest area not far from where we live, and the freedom I had with time and travel. I spent time like it was some loose change I always had at hand. And then, sometime in mid September, there was a call for work. I felt the conflict in my heart and head. To take the job, or not, because apart from my jungle time sacrifice, there were other things a…
