Hair Removal

A painful thing for both your face/body and your purse. There are many good salons that provide excellent service. For good value,  I would look at Clearskin in Shenton Park. They are rather nice! Call 08 9388 1808. Find your closest location here.

My big tip: Ask your GP or Endo about Vaniqa cream. It works quite well. Prescription only. Used for post-menopausal hair growth. Expensive but great when paired with IPL or Electrolysis. Find out more about Vaniqa.

Another excellent choice for quality Laser is www.laserskincare.com.au/. Dr Opie recommends them highly though I cannot vouch for them as have not tried them.

Surgery

Surgery is an intensely personal subject that requires a lot of thought, support, and can cost you a lot of money. When you are ready to research the options there are three respected Thailand clinics that may be of particular interest. I can only comment on the ones that I have had some experience with or that friends have had good experiences at. This is just a guide, make your own decisions based on what is right for you.

PAI

The Preecha Aesthetic Institute – PAI is very popular. Having met them they are very knowledgeable, caring and helpful. Their attention to detail is notable. I know many that have used them and are very happy. Dr Burin is very talented, in you will love Bune, darlings 😉

The plus sides with PAI include being very close to the PAI clinic and also the hospital itself. They use Piyavate at this point. The hospital is a little older than some, but the care is very good. They recommend the Hotel Salil, which is very comfortable, with affordable meals and breakfast included. All these little things make for a more stress-free experience. There is also easy access for basic shopping close by, and Central Plaza Rama 9 is a great place for a more retail therapy vibe.

Dr Saran

The Dr Saran was very kind to me and the care was very good indeed. He used the Bangkok Hospital Chinatown, which was magnificent. There is a beautiful and affordable hotel close by named Shanghai Mansions. Be warned though that post surgery, you may want a hotel closer to the clinic as the drive is not always easy. Dr Saran can be very busy, and you may also wait longer times for consultations pre and post surgery. When you do get to see Dr S he is kind, fun, and very knowledgeable. I am very proud to know him.

Dr Suporn

Dr Suporn. I know many that have had wonderful experiences there, and the quality of work is excellent. I can’t make any further comment there as I don’t know!

My Dark Place – Full Of Light!

This post is about my Dark Universe CD, the story behind the music. A very personal story, yearning for release for most of my life. I don’t expect all to understand, but this is who I am, and this is my life.

I am Transgender/Intersex. ***

There it is. It’s out there. I have been this way as long as I can remember. I have lived with a deep melancholy sadness for all of this time. It has burned inside of me. I have tried to hide, created a protective shell, denied myself happiness, and channeled that emotion and pain into my music.

I was left feeling worthless, looking for an escape from this world, a better place. My dark place, my Dark Universe.

That is the crux of my story.

I assumed it was maybe God’s (or some other supreme spiritual beings) way of giving with one hand and taking with another.

Sometimes love is not enough and despite the deep love of family and friends, I could not overcome the feelings of sadness and isolation.

I did my best to be a caring, loving, giving person and had some wins and losses. The main loss being my true self.

As you listen to the music and follow the lyrics of Dark Universe you will see many clues as to my feelings, although I did write the songs with the intention of making them open to the listeners interpretation. If you read between the lines, you may see it, or you may find something else entirely.

My aim was to channel the emotions that we all feel about our lives into something that evoked an emotional response. Music and art are about emotion in my view, and you will see that there is a purpose to what is being played and sung.

This music is from the very darkest, deepest depths of my being. I am putting all my vulnerabilities on display. The one element I would like to be felt is hope. Dark as it may be in parts, there is a ray of hope in all I write, finding beauty in the sadness, and a chance to resolve, of light in every darkness.

And now, it is my chance to find that light, to reveal who I am, to both myself and the world. My music is my love and escape, but hopefully the ultimate path to truth and happiness.

I sincerely hope you find something to love on Dark Universe, and that you can also find a place for me in your hearts and take me for who I am.

Love and peace

Jaime Page – February 2016

Postscript:

I have total support from my lovely wife & partner Kerry, my Mum and Dad, which is priceless, and overwhelming support from my close friends, family, many bandmates past and present, and all at Kosmic.

The future will involve advocating for others that are dealing with similar issues, working towards greater awareness and acceptance of Diversity/LGBTI issues. I salute PFLAG Perth for their excellent work in this area and also hope to add my voice to their message.
