Speak Easy

It is part of my daily ritual in Dubai. Tuning into Dubai Eye 103.8.....
One of my favorite segments is definitely "Speak Easy"..by a wacky pair of foxy ladies...Nannette and Victoria....their wicked sense of humor always left me in stitches...totally unscripted...
and their chemistry is impeccable....reminds me of the infamous duo from BBC...French and Saunders....but the ladies on air are much much prettier in the look department...lol

This morning, heard the bad news... Victoria has a relapse...the doctors found a growth in her brain and she will be operated on immediately. Like many of their fans....I pray for her speedy recovery!

"Kiki" is the resident birdie at the roof-top pool...no one has an iota of a clue where she's from. She has this peculiar habit of traversing along the edge...her head moving repeatedly like a twirling baton...almost trance liked. I like to believe she's a messenger from heaven. Remember the german lady who received a free copy of "The Witch of Portobello"? She had a very spiritual encounter with Kiki. While she was resting by the pool one afternoon, with a very heavy heart...suddenly the birdie flew towards her...and flapping her wings...made a full circle flight around her...it's like telling her: "Someone is watching over you and worry no more!" Instantly, she felt a huge load lifted up from her heart!
"Vic will be fine!"

I had a terrible time in 2005 with all my favourite stars dying. I hope the same doesn't happen to you. Everyone deserves to start the day right! Good luck to Vic!

The bird is amazing. I do like them, especially when they are free!

The best is not to love old stars

Unhappily, I like many old writters, such as JF Deniau (1928-2007)who died recently.
Or Jorge Semprun who is born 1923...

I love the story about the bird. I can believe the theory about heaven. God works in mysterious ways. :)

Oh, hope the radio lady gets better. Sometimes fan support can mean alot to people in the public eye. If it were the U.S., she'd be mobbed by paparazzi and autograph-seekers all the way up to the O.R. (operating room).

nakji...death is natural...it's the process..some people could just literally sleep away...:)
cerige...we have no control over loving those...young, old, star or no star..especially if they impacted our lives..
junebee...ya in USA...i don't doubt one bit...wonder how her (paris hilton) fans will survive for the next 45 days without her daily activities...
kanlaya..thks for dropping by...hope u have a blog soon so that i can pop by for a cuppa..last thursday..there was an extention of 30 mins when nanette got to speak to vic over the phone...she sounded very positive..apparently the op is on tuesday...and one rather sad news..both agreed to stop the show until vic recovers fully...nanette will not do the show alone...so we have to wait patiently for the next season :( anyway, for vic to pull thru will be our main concern...

Sadly Vix passed away November 2008, having fought so bravely against liver cancer. Incidently, the brain tumour was succesfully removed in 2007 --- and in 2008, Vix moved with her fiance to the UK --- so happy, and so in love. But the cancer came back, and was diagnosed in October. She fought so hard... some of her closest friends and family were at her side when she passed away --- with such grace and dignity. What a brave woman... she will always be loved and missed... x x MHDSRIP
