Hello and welcome to this week’s vlog. Anyone who is new here, I’m Jessica. This is my wife Claudia Hellooo Hi! We’re British
Obviously And we are currently doing a seven week tour of Malaysia Okay, I can’t lie to you It is actually Thursday But we spent the first two days of this week editing the Thailand videos both of which you can watch by clicking the card above or going to the link in the description And then yesterday, I was just generally feeling poo because I have my period and of course that means the migraines But the funny thing about my period migraines and actually just my chronic pain in general It would be hurting anyway whether I’m in the apartment doing absolutely nothing or I’m out and about having fun.
So I decided – let’s do that. We’re gonna go shopping First thing we’re going to do is go and get our hair done. Someone needs a trim Yeah, I’m getting mine trimmed. It’s quite long I do like my hair like this. I like my natural ringlets and so on That kind of like unbrushed look, cause I just don’t brush it Nine times out of ten, when I go to the hairdresser’s and I come out, I would preferred it when I went in because I just like to style it my way, and when I say style it I mean like I just let it dry or I tie it in a bun, and let it dry on my head, and then when I let it go it goes wavy Anyway we’ll see I’m growing my hair. Obviously.
So I’m just gonna get my roots done And we don’t want them to trim it, but I have a fear that they’re going to tell me the ends are dead I bought myself a magazine How to improve your photography Anyway, I thought I’d get this and read it in the hairdressers because they always only provide really girly magazines with loads and loads adverts of handbags and shoes and clothes and like what makeup is best if you have this type of face and I’m like That was the fastest and best haircut I’ve had for a long time Just got our hair done, let’s take moment to appreciate Claudia in all her gloriousness I know, it’s actually, ironically I came out thinking Ah, this is probably one out of the ten times, it’s okay Unfortunately – you can’t tell from this angle – but everywhere you can’t see still has roots Yes, it was entirely pointless. Claudia: I do a better job apparently Cause I’m the one who does it normally at home I did say, we were gonna do it last night, but we were tired, but I was just gonna do it for you Which is what we’re gonna do anyway. Well now we have to get more dye Plus point though is this does give me a good moment to plug the fact that Clara and I in the future are going to make a video all about maintaining your hair when it’s dyed, because people ask me that a lot Oh, and we asked everyone that in the community tab, which you should definitely go and check out Look at the community tab – I will post stuff there Claudia: Do you know what that one’s called?
Jessica: What? Claudia: It’s the parrotfish, since it’s got like a beak
Jessica Yeah, and it’s colourful Glutinous rice flour, water, potato search, tapioca starch canola oil Permitted colouring!
No bad colouring, just the allowed ones. Jessie’s feeling a bit sad I feel sad, because Cause I’m full of hormones, that make a girl feel sad Basically it’s her time of month She can’t handle it Does anyone know which are the best hormone control pills to take that won’t make her feel hormonal Claudia: and she can stop feeling like this
Jessica: I want to go on a pill that you don’t get a period cause I don’t need that in my life I just want my migraines to go away. She’s in like actual agony? Hurts so much and so I just want to like get lots of.. I want to get lots and lots of clothes Really cheaply
And then feel really good about myself That’s what I need Claudia: This is confusing you
Jessica: Oh my god, this is really bending my mind We think we found some clothes that I like Maybe Claudia: It’s not your normal style I’m not sure where the skirt goes If I pull the waistband down to my waist I think I’m gonna get demonetised, guys! It’s not good
It’s not gonna end well, is it? Yo Hello We are going to a night market – another one Another one, yeah. A Malaysian one, pasar malam Which will hopefully have some very exciting things, including a new Joby stick for this camera Cause this one is looking a little bit tired and, it’s like they’re all popping out Jessica: One the legs, everytime I move it, just comes off Yeah! Anyway – no, what we’re gonna do is get some cheap mock up Mock up? Like spoof I’m too..
I’ve had a migraine for three days Claudia: Whatever
Jessica: Don’t ask me! We’re gonna get some fake Joby sticks What other things are we gonna buy?
Maybe some knickers? Jessica: What?
Claudia: Essentials – some knickers I actually got an amazing bra from the first night market we went to in Thailand It was only two pounds, and it was the best bra I’ve ever bought Your knickers are made for child I’ve just got a small more bum, okay Well Yeah Okay, apparently I should cover more of my bum Oh no, I love your bum But I just think, you know, the bright primary coloured underwear in like the little girly pantie shape I just don’t like spending money on things that don’t need to be like, that’s why I’m buying my new knickers from a market As the person who sees your underwear, I’m just saying I’ve got my other camera ready I just want to get some nice photos that encapsulate Malaysia And then get them framed and put them around our house in England and also maybe around the flat here Can my friend come? Can I come, please? I found more bows Claudia: Head bows Jessica: Loook. More bows This is [Cantonese word], or sugar cane drink My aunt was like, oh they sell sugar cane drink, your favourite Because when I was liittle, I made a song about all of my favourite food in Malaysia it went a bit like this “Claudia singing” And I can remember the rest, but.. that’s how I told myself some simple Cantonese Today I feel really poo I’m just really exhausted and.. Ugh! Cause I’ve been awake now for like five hours, and I’m not awake Good morning! So yesterday’s market was absolutely amazing – wait, should I turn this fan off? I should turn the fan off. So yesterday’s market is really really good.
It was the market that I wanted to see in Thailand It wasn’t just touristy tatty stuff which the town markets were But we got amazing fruit So cheap! And it’s now absolutely filling our fridge.
Our fridge is full of weird fruit And I managed to get some nice bows for my hair I had a really lovely dinner And it was just a really nice experience.
It was really good However, shopping at the department stores yesterday – not so great As you can see I am wearing the same dress as yesterday Not only because this dress isn’t actually dirty, so
why not? But also just because I don’t have enough clothes I know, I know that’s the type of thing of course I would say that but I genuinely didn’t actually bring that many clothes with me Swimming costumes on the other hand.. People keep asking me on Instagram, how many swimming costumes do you have with you exactly? Ten! Yeah Yes! Clothes are really cheap here, and they’re really good quality as well and Underwear especially is much better buying it out here because it does not need to be as expensive as in England So Yeah, and then kind of apparently we just forgot that although Claudia looks absolutely amazing in everything she has tried on here and has the perfect body for it I do not Everything here is quite, it’s sort of cut for more of an Asian body type and the fashions for tops and so on seem very straight down and Now, it’s just not.. that’s just not me So today, we’re going to Sunway which is about, apparently a 15-minute drive way, getting an Uber and is a much bigger mall, has a larger range of stuff And I am super excited, because we went there when we here two years ago and they have this whole area, that is just Weird street fashion – is the best way to describe that And I got some really good vintagey skirts there Very big skirts – very big And they have sort of Harajuku stuff They have some relief(?) stuff they have different Different looks and fashion, styles. And I’m really excited. I want to get some weird handbags So that’s really fun, and we are dressed ready for the air con Because this is a very important thing when you’re shopping in Malaysia. You need to know Bring clothes for the cold Weird, but true. It’s freezing. Every shop you go, it’s freezing It’s genuinely freezing in here.
It is, it is But, just stopping to get my Coke Light – slowest service ever and then I turned around and I saw an amazing shop! Just a pharaoh statue twice the size of a regular human Clearly, 50% of you guys are American,
my analytics tell me So is this really boring for you?
Are you like “oh, seen that before”? Cause all of my British people, I know, are like “Ahh”! Let’s go into Asian Avenue! “Jessica singing” Oh yeah, first we’re gonna try to find an external hard drive – so exciting! A bit lost right now, but the great thing is it’s a circle No, it’s not a circle. It’s a square, and the square means we eventually get back to where we want to be Hello Claudia is now holding the camera for me, even though it looks like I am I’m not I’m in so much pain! Claudia: That’s what shopping does to you We bought stuff, guys Warning, I’m gonna show you Brian – be prepared.
Or skip ahead Claudia: It’s not looking that bad, just a bit mangi.
Manji? Mangi? Jessica: Sorry, are you trying to say mangy? Or mangi?
Claudia: Both Ah, pills! Pills Liquid and pills Claudia: Have some non-alcoholic drink again It’s like shooting drilling stop stabbing pain From my toesies all the way to my hips. I don’t have a cutesy words the hips Claudia: Yeah, hipsies From my toesies to my hipsies No that doesn’t quite work Cut to us trying on our clothes Both: Marvel t-shirts! Jessica: These are both one of only 300 made Claudia: They glow in the dark, how amazing it.
Jessica: Oh, that’s so good Claudia : Don’t you agree, Fred? So Claudia has asked me to open her crisp packet because this is what she did when she last opened it This is her idea of resealing You can’t just duct tape things together! You know for someone with two degrees, this is either ingenious or idiotic! Right Well, they are still fresh.
I will give you that, they are still fresh We are at the house of Claudia’s aunt and uncle That was a really non English way to say that, wasn’t it? “That’s the house of” We’re having a nice dinner together, because it’s the last day of Chinese New Year So celebration dinner.
I’m really looking forward to it Jessica: Why is the rice blue? Put some flowers, special flowers, coloured flowers, so you get them blue Jessica : You’re abusing a small child “Laughter” Jessica: No, no, no – what’s this? Claudia: Look at my hair Jessica: What’s happened to your head, Claudia? Jessica: Claudia as a bridesmaid looking so pleased with herself Jessica: Claudia giving some good face right there. That’s beautiful Claudia: I got no teeth Jessica: Got no teeth
Claudia: No, no front teeth “Laughter” Jessica: Lovely! And this is this is Claudia’s smile Jessica: That’s right
