Played at The Park (again) last night. There were these two caucasian ladies, looking hip and sassy, sat in front of the stage. It was almost two am. Everyone was just lounging. I was about to end my set but these girls had this 'i-still-wanna-party-whoop-whoop' vibe. Ended my set, went down to them and they were were like 'oh my god you are beautiful, so pretty, so amazing, you were great! They were so aggressive in a good way and at that point, I wasn't sure how to handle them. Fortunately I was able to and told the girls they should come back next week for my set.
Realization: In my experience, foreign people will most likely give you a compliment compared to most women in our race. I have had several encounters with women expats who share their thoughts about how I look, my color, my style. Most of the time, I don't know where to get the confidence to face them and the answers to those overwhelming words of flattery but I end up saying the same compliments to them. In contrary, I have had several encounters with women (our race) say something bad behind my back, or give awful comments about the outfit I wear or even the darkest shade of lipstick on my lip. They always have something bad to say about anything.
I just wish every girl will equally look and give compliments at each other truthfully - most especially that we are near to each other and we live in the same country. It wouldn't hurt to say 'you are beautiful' today. 😊😊😊👧🏼🙎👯👭
