Because I can’t. I can’t sleep on planes, I can’t sleep on buses, I can’t sleep in cars, I can’t sleep in tents and it doesn’t matter how big and comfy the hotel bed, I can’t sleep in that, either.
Very few people have the resolve to diet when traveling – part of the ‘authentic’ experience is to consume as much local cuisine as your stomach will physically allow, or that’s always been my policy. Still, in the interest of not being mistaken for a lost dugong while floundering in the breaks off Karon Beach next vacation, here are some low-fat Thai foods to gorge on.
Bali is Indonesia’s party island and the night life generally starts late, meaning around midnight, and continues on until dawn in some venues. Most of the after-dark action occurs in the Kuta, Legian and Seminyak areas and while most of the party-goers are tourists there are music, clubs and bars to suit all tastes.
I’m about to start working for an Asian company – what insight can you give me that might help me be successful in my new job?
I hate instructions because they’re a big waste-o-time. No one is listening.
I just attended my Thai-Chinese friend’s wedding and half the population of Asia was there. Are Asian weddings typically that big?
Why am I always waiting? I wait for my wife, I wait for a cab, I wait in traffic and then I wait at the airport. I wait in line at check-in, at immigration, at the gate and then I wait on the plane. The flight itself could be considered a form of waiting, as I wait to arrive. When I arrive, I wait at customs, I wait for my bags, I wait for a cab and then I wait in traffic again. It’s like a vicious circle of procrastination.
For a country with such a ubiquity of delicious foods, there are surprisingly few fat people in Singapore. I think I saw one the whole time I was there and that person probably had thyroid problems. Just like Thais, whose national pastime is eating, the Singaporeans just don’t seem to convert their constant snacking into body mass.
Vancouver is my favorite Canadian city as not only is it beautiful, but it’s a town that knows how to party. The action is only going to get more frenetic with the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympic Games. It may get chilly outside, but the nightlife scene packs some heat.
