Where I stayed
sama sam hostel
. It was here i watched some random chinese man who apparently holds the record for opening coconuts with just his finger.... He did his thing... pretty cool, looked painfull tho .. will post pics soon. I kinda felt inspired to take a piece of this with me (not the coconut thing) but the place.. I bought and shipped kind of a oil press painting home.. total thing cost about 70 bucks.. alot yes but i knew id regret it if i didnt .. Its 5 buddah heads in a row on a black canvas with different colour faces.. quite trippy. hope it doesnt get absolutely raped on the way home in shipping.. still searching for a guitar i like.. a well... Spent a couple days biking around.. hostel gave you free bikes very cool... decided not to tell me tho that they were absolute piece of shit bikes.. figures.. got about 4 k to this mall to find my tire flat.... fuck this.. Kinda of a cool coincidence tho cause i ended up wandering into the mall and finding a malaysian bboy (breakdance) jam... wtf man.... WTF Man.. was rad to watch tho.. well after that and some reall cool stumbling through a night market i went back to kl.. and now i am here in hanoi, with a completely dissabiliated liver and another 30 cent beer to buy.. rock the fack on eh,.
random other thing i noticed is the same robotic thinking as in china here..... people are incapable of changeing things.. they only do what there told.. i tried to buy meat sticks.. 1.60 for i wanted two and 3.00 exactly.. .lady said no you have to pay 3.20 .. i say i dont have 20 c she says to bad... :" why are you being like this..." because that what boss say" wtf is wrong with the communist mentality. I think dad would kill people here...
Well. as anyone who actually was reading these would know.. I have kind of fallen of the horse..this is my half ass attempt at starting again.. Malaca was a very cool place for me.. Had just come from Singapore so the change in pace was nice.. At this point i was still travelling with two friends.. Amy Richards from wales and Alejandro who has made many appearance in theses albums. It was basically just a really relaxed place.. I was staying in this awesome cafe slash hotel in the old chinese town.. the food was amazing.. like holy crap good.. complete mix of things.. i was having roti for breakfast and dim sum for lunch loved it. Best thing id ever eating was a malaca laksa at a little hole in the wall.. Malaca was almost like if starbucks designed a city.......buttttt..... minus the wanks the preppys and all the people that sit around on lap tops trying to feel important sipping tripple chia no fat non leche, lates. .. and the egocentric money based personalities... kinda felt like the original idea.. cliche enough I know.
