"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…

My Karma Kamet

CONSIDERING my big love for essential oils, I know meeting Karma Kamet (KK) was destiny. My first encounter with this Thai label of aromatherapy product is like a brief introduction to a friend's friend who'd later turn out to be someone you wake up next to quite regularly. I walked into a KK kiosk at a mall in Petaling Jaya about two years ago. Well, the products then were impressive - high grade essential oils, but the collection seemed pretty scarce with stupid price tags on them. So I didn't bother following up until a few days ago when I bumped into KK at its homeland, in its full range and glory! 
The KK oils are super awesome with a capital W. Like Wow. So spending time at the KK store in the Central World mall in Bangkok was a bliss. Not only are the products much cheaper there, the place is a total retreat too. On one side is the store where there are all kinds of products ranging from scented candles, perfume oil mist, pure essential oils, soaps, oil sprays, herba…

A Painful Lesson

BEING back in the pool has been great ! Found my rhythm again and I'm swimming like a dolphin although my friend Aida says I swim like a shark. I told her I won't bite as long as she doesn't throw herself like a whale onto my swimming lane. You know how annoying it is when inconsiderate, non-swimming creatures suddenly decide to 'float' in your swimming way knowing that you've been doing laps for the last 30 minutes ? If they are not blind, then they have to be socially spastic. Socially spastic like the man who doesn't swim at the Kelana Jaya pool. This man, with belly like a pot, wonders in the middle section of the 50m pool, and does nothing but floats or water-threads just when a swimmer is reaching that section of the pool. Two weeks ago, I was a victim of this water-buffalo. When I was just a meter away from him, he appeared on my lane, looking at me with that too-bad-its-my-pool-too look that I had to stop and swim around him. No apologies at all. Ho…
