A while back I wrote a long article about the cons of Manila, in the Philippines, and called it Manila Part One, so I suppose I’m obligated to come up with a Part Two in case you find yourself in Manila and have to make the best of it. I don’t like Manila, so this may be a short article.
I don’t think that Manila is an ideal location for many of the things that I like, really. The food is terrible, it’s very hard to find drugs, the chicks are cute but super boring, it’s not as cheap as it should be, and it’s too hot. The only thing that I’m into that Manila is excellent for … [Read more]
Enablers are people that allow you to continue your losing ways; babying you and bailing you out. Enablers allow you to continue making the same mistakes and never having the guts to tell you where you really stand – never having the balls to let you know that you are screwing up or that you just might need to put your head down and do some actual work.
In “our” world, enablers are most apparent in the mainstream. These are companies that promise that you will “speak fluent French without boring drills or actual work” or that “every time you go for a swim, dolphins will appear”. These are individuals selling a concept that assures “You won’t have to … [Read more]
Another good option for a getaway vacation in Southeast Asia away from the bustle of the big city is Railay Beach, Thailand. A major stop on the backpacker trail, Railay is a great choice if you’re into smoking pot on the beach with hippie backpackers, eating the always delicious Thai cuisine, and oh by the way, partaking in what some people think is the best rock climbing on Planet Earth.
Railay is not as convenient to get to as Langkawi, Malaysia, however. To get there you have to fly to Krabi on Air Asia or the like, then grab a bus to Ao Nang, and then take a short boat ride to Railay itself. The boats are a … [Read more]
I don’t know what’s more appalling about the video below, the blatant gold digging or the fact that ABC News is doing what seems like a positive, or at least neutral “news” piece on this atrocious bitch (and by news I mean non-news). Maybe I’m misreading it, but this bitch journalist seems almost like she looks upon this skank with something like admiration of her ingenuity. It’s rare to see so many things that are wrong with western society so obviously portrayed in one short video clip. From the obnoxious gold digging bitch, the hypocrisy that permeates western society, to the retarded non-news promoting mainstream media this clip … [Read more]
The best thing about working in Southeast Asia is the ease of traveling to exotic and beautiful locations in the region. Flights are cheap on Air Asia, Tiger Air, and other discount airlines and in a couple of hours you can escape the bustle and crowding of big cities like Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok and transport yourself to a picturesque tropical beach where hotels are cheap, drinks have umbrellas in them, and the point of life seems, for me at least, to be quite obvious.
An excellent place for a quick weekend getaway is Langkawi, Malaysia. A quick hour from KL and other regional cities, Langkawi has … [Read more]
