Chinese new year is on, but I'm exhausted. Not in the mood for crowds, and Chinatown Inc. gets old after you've been through 10 franchises or so.
I'm taking a five day course on traditional Thai massage, which is much of the reason for my exhaustion. Being the demo model for the initial demonstration was very relaxing - being "massaged" by two classmates who don't understand the subtleties of pressure was agonizing. After a couple shouts of "gah, dial it back a bit" I just gave up.
I had my first evar conversation with a Japanese person, which was cool. Her English is good, but as per many people I've met she barely speaks louder than a whisper. We talked about religion and baseball.
I doubt I'll stay here beyond this Saturday. I want to go back to the islands (Langkawi was great) and for whatever reason this city just isn't doing it for me. I certainly prefer Thai people to the Chinese flavored Malaysians.
Oh also while on Langkawi I learned how to drive those motorscooter thingies and it was the coolest thing ever. I'm buying a Vespa when I get back. I got that beotch up to 45mph with a girl riding on the back. I was rollin' man, I was rollin'.
