Has it actually been so long since I last wrote? ( think the preceedeing sentence has become a bit of a traditional precursor for me to any one of my blogs - whenever you don't see this, it must not be me writing! ;) )
By the way, another coool thing that happened while I was in Perhentian was that I was part of the fire show - what? you beg to ask. Well, let me tell you - it's cool having friends in high places. What happened was, there was 'Lady Boy' who was one of the waiters at Bubu Resort - and some of you may know how I have this 'thing' for lady boys, hehehehehehee. Anyway, he was very nice with orange hair; didn't like Mr Black though - arrogant son of a slug - he got his though! Alright, let's get back to happier news. Lady Boy was one of the performers in the nightly fire show....he'd had two chains dangling from each hand, both of which have a ball of fire hanging at one end. These balls are lighted up and guess what, there you go - fire balls for a fire show. He'd swing them balls every which way and create these beautiful patterns in the night scene.
To make everything even more exciting and personal for the audience, of course some of us in the crowd were invited to go on sand (no stage) and try swinging for our lives......Lady Boy picked me, I went, all game and excited and did my turn entertaining my big group of friends. So much fodder for the cameras. No camera of my own but anyway, Liz got a beautiful clear-on pic of me which I shall try to put on the moment I get my hands on it.
Here I am looking for life experiences - there you go, there's one!
