The Asia contemplations
We've been in Asia for more than three months now. Here are some of the thoughts I've had during that period (which I feel sum it up pretty well)
is there a lizard in my bathtub? there is definitely a lizard in my bathtub
this kitkat is green, therefore it is obviously healthy
Kyron: this is called fresh beer, it’s only like 1 or 2%. Merlijn: *drinks half a beer*: "I feel tipsy"
Merlijn: "no guys, all good, I don’t need to dance on stage, not really feeling it." *Kyron and Kate proceed to crawl towards me like sexy tigers* *Merlijn joins them on stage*
Spa lady: "what do you want?" Me: "a fish spa and a massage." Lady:" and a pedicure?" Me: "No I think I’m…" Lady *looks at my feet*: "AND A PEDICURE" *I proceed to get a pedicure*
Me to Kyron: "I trust you in this traffic, I mean, I am like really scared for my knees sometimes, but in general I trust you."
Kyron: "you are aware that you are eating $3 dollar Pringels?" I *continue to eat pringles*: worth every penny
Me: "why is warm water advertised as a special thing?" *turns on shower* “ooohhh”
Why are there THREE karaoke bars in this little village, but no ATM?
Is that a rock or our matras?
“Can I please get fried rice without meat?” *Ends up eating fried rice with three types of meat & 2 types of fish
We’ve definitely earned some street-cred now, transporting three closets on this scooter
Can we please get a menu? *restaurant owner proceeds to give us every dish of the menu* Well played sir, well played.
It costs HOW MUCH to withdraw money from this ATM?! Oh wait, that’s right, divide by 20.000
Whilst riding our motorbike. “WATCH OUT FOR THE COW KYRON, WATCH OUT FOR THE COW”
We’ll definitely be drinking this bottle of tequila/wine/notsurewhatliquid with a snake biting a scorpion in it
No I honestly don’t want ANOTHER massage
How many Red goats energy drinks do I need to drink today to not fall asleep on the back of the motorbike?
*On said motorbike* THIS IS HOW I AM GOING TO DIE, THIS IS HOW I AM GOING TO DIE, THIS IS HOW… oh look a duck on the back of a scooter!”
Can everybody please stop looking at me like I am some kind of three-legged unicorn? (after riding through the North of Vietnam for days without seeing another Westerner)
Host: “One more shot” Me: “No thank you, I’ve had enough (4)” Host: “Last one” Me: “Ok….” Host: “One more shot” Me: “No thank you” Host: “Last one” Me: “No thank you” Host: “One more shot”
Gecko fight, gecko fight!!
We can’t go back to Europe, the toilets there don’t have hoses
Singapore is basically just tropical Europe
OMG that was an expensive massage, we paid $8!
- We can definitely transport these 3 bamboo ladders and 90 kg of stones on this scooter
Love from Singapore <3
