A very relaxing Sunday afternoon spent in three hypermarkets. (I am reminded of the Björk song Hyperballad all of a sudden.) In the above photo, I am shown wearing very short pants in a striking orange tone and an XXL jersey top in pale turquoise that costs RM3.90 (purchased in Carrefour Bangsar South) that is aching to be cut up. Here I am at the Japanese snack section of Tescos Ampang. Pokki and Rocky are both under Glico, as my friend pointed out, though I always have thought Rocky was the pirated version. Rocky sounds more butch to me. I’m learning to be more butch – a life skill that proves to be a needed advantage.
Firstly, the aisle just in front of the entrance — CDs. Datuk Siti Nurhaliza (wanita Melayu sopan) is sandwiched between a not-so sopan Ibiza trance-worthy stock photo (actually just a pop karaoke mix) and a very fierce image of a local girl who looks a tad like the fag-hag comedian Joanne Kam Poh Poh in a more teenage-angst inspired makeup.
“PLU Party” — according to my friend Linolumixa when we noticed this “Value Pack 2 VCD”. Though it seems it would be more suitable for emotional sleep-overs for sisters in pain, rather than a sweaty shirtless dance affair among clubbing queens, partly because it contains Kylie’s sentimental love songs (they should then choose a more subdued representation of her for this cover: perhaps in a beige lace-hemmed dress, to suggest tender soft hearted romance — certainly not red leather military helmets. Although I admit, I don’t know her sentimental love songs, and I don’t see her looking romantic in her videos either, so I wouldn’t know if there are any romantic looking pictures of her in existence. I could not picture her in a gown doused in moonlight, for example. That sort of imagery is easy for individuals like Celine Dion though.
The very energetic Anita Sarawak, highly different yet fabulously similar to the late Anita Mui. This image is a very old image. She could look like a melayu Amanda Lepore, albeit less plasticy. Those lips still look the same until this day.
