Well. I had to do it folks. I had to leave the land of smiles and make my annual pilgrimage to the states. I don’t enjoy it. It costs too damn much but I have to see my folks. My folks are still the 2 most amazing people in my life and I have too many brothers, sister n’laws and nephews(neice on the way) to count. So once a year I make the journey. I eat too much, don’t drink and hardly find time to chase to women. Yet the journey only helps me to appreciate my life in Thailand more and drives me to figure out a way to make sure that my quest in Thailand is not short-lived. It might even make interesting reading…
Made a Visa run to Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia August 15-17, 2006. A couple of days doing the necessary with the Thai Embassy combined with a little KL nightlife research was the agenda for the trip. At the end, and what seems to becoming a pattern now, I was glad to get back to Thailand. Summary of the trip is below. Information on the web is pretty scattered and out of date on KL but I found a few websites helpful:
Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur (KL)
A substitute for another person, especially in an emergency. For example, Pat expected her mother to help with the baby, but just in case, she lined up her mother-in-law as pinch hitter.
This expression comes from baseball, where it is used for a player substituting for another at bat at a critical point or in a tight situation (called a pinch since the late 1400s).
This definition is taken from here. Given the crazy night life in Bangkok and the sometimes unsuccessful chase of proper Thai women it becomes very helpful that Bangkok is full of pinch hitters. For those emergency situations of course.
It is now Monday and I am spending the afternoon with my ‘virgin’. I was going to Singapore on Tuesday morning for holiday/ work (in that order). At her request we went swimming in my building’s pool. Afterwards I set her up in the shower when she asked ?Do you want to shower with me?” I said YES and we showered, cleaning each other. Since I have still not kissed her, and she is a virgin, we showered with our bathing suits on. After my past rejections with her the mood did not seem right to seal our first kiss, so I waited.
I have been on holiday in Bangkok for 2.5 months. Over that time I have partaken in many Thai ladies ranging from the gogos, bar girls, free lancers (paid and unpaid) and somewhat normal Thai ladies. I have been having the time of my life and the sex has been incredible. But, as good as it is at times the drama that accompanies these girls can be a little draining. So when I met a proper 26 year old Thai lady, with a good job, I was ready to give a ‘normal’ relationship a try.
Okay. I don’t think I can top the last post and despite what some are saying – it is true which is why I can hardly live with myself. Maybe therapy is in order? Oh well. Good copy. Good copy. After the “incident” I went back to my coffee shop Cafe Ole, to work on the blog and recompose myself. BTW – the wifi is free, the coffee is good and the service is great. They even watched my gear whilst I went to the restroom. A great find in KL. After blogging I went to the hotel for a powernap, a shower and to plot my evening. I figured for the night hunt I would go after something a little more my age.
Last day in Bangkok.
I wake up at 7:30 have breakfast at my hotel the Woburi, a piece of shit, so called resort. I eat quickly and head up to my room and write yesterdays trip report until 11:30 AM. Pack my bags and grab a tuk-tuk and head over to the plush JW Marriott. I check in early, get comfortable, buy some in room internet time and post yesterdays trip report.
