In the 1960's, drinking Ribena was a real treat then. With its refreshing taste packed in a beautiful glass bottle, it was common for many mothers to pack the Ribena drink for their school-going kids (and that includes yours truly!)

Ribena is a British brand of fruit-based uncarbonated soft drink, carbonated soft drink and fruit drink concentrate produced by GlaxoSmithKline. The original and most common variety contains real blackcurrant juice. Read more HERE.

Fast forward to 2012....

Jo Kukuthas, founding director and artistic director the Instant Cafe Theatre has given new meaning to Ribena in her Ribena Berry character. Many of you would know that Jo Kukuthas is one of the most talented, versatile and charismatic performers of our time. Enduring, engimatic and endearing, Jo puts together many pressing concerns in such a rib-tickling fashion that one does not know whether to cry, laugh or be absolutely flabbergasted at the state of affairs. Her talent and creativity is certainly par excellence.

I have watched this video about ten times and it is still laughingly entertaining. Now if you still have not watched this fantastic video, PLEASE CLICK HERE AND ENJOY THIS POTPOURRI OF MALAYSIAN ISSUES ALA JO KUKUTHAS' BRAND OF HUMOR AND SATIRE.

You will not regret it. It is true!!! :-)

In the mean time, Malaysiakini reported today that The Aiyoh... Wat Lah?! Awards 2011 held at the Central Market Annexe conferred ‘awards’ to the six most discriminatory remarks by public figures and policymakers deemed sexist, misogynistic, homophobic or transphobic.

CLICK HERE to read the report which mentioned intriguing categories such as:

  • Foot in Mouth
  • Cannot Ignore
  • Ad Nauseam
  • Policy Fail
  • Right On Track etc

According to Malaysiakini, the nominations were collected from news reports last year and were voted internally by 74 representatives of the various member groups under JAG in seven days.
