Weather's cool. It has been raining for the past few days. It's wonderful when it rain. It's more quiet and serene.
What better things to do than to go for a nice massage. So, Alpinesis and I decided to go to this Holistic thingy in Bangsar for a massage. It was very relaxing. While I was day dreaming, an old conversation with an old friend came flashing back to me:
Old Friend: "Why wanna migrate? Malaysia not good meh?"
me: "What's so good?"
OF: "Ai.. you don't know how to enjoy.. good things are cheap here.. like, for example a good massage. It's rm60 here. Try to see how much it is in Western country. IT WILL KILL YOU. Anything labour or services cost a bomb there. Do you want to fix your own plumbing? Or assemble your own furniture? Or, gasp! fix your own car?"
me: "Well, at least their food and groceries are cheap."
OF: "BOLLOCKS!... can you get a nice cup of tea for a dollar? I am not talking about those crappy 3-in-1. I am talking about a nice teh tarik with milk and sugar. What about movies? Have you even tried EATING OUT in USA? The tip itself will turn you pale!"
me: "um.. um.. car is cheap!"
OF: "Petrol is not"
me: "Public transport is efficient"
OF: "Try walking to the train station in winter"
me: "There you go! 4 seasons!"
OF: "You have a/c in Malaysia and with the right technician, you can *cough* cut your lektrik bill by half"
me: "FREE MEDICALLLLL"
OF: "40% TAXXXXXXXX"
I give up.
So, something positive about Malaysia in my blog eh?
Perhaps it is the nice rainy weather.
