Jessy as she(he) calls herself, is a 17 year old karaoke hostess. The bar she works in looks like it has not been renovated since the early 80's, and all customers there would be elderly local thai men. She comes from Isaan province, a poor rural country side region of Thailand, and she has been living in Phuket for some time now. Her job is to serve and sell drinks, but also to sing, dance and flirt with customers.
