Badminton update, stressed BB and Australian jokes

Since there was no badminton on Thursday and Saturday, I went today. Sadly, the guy I like didnt come today. I miss him:)

He's very cheerful and has the "taking care" mentality. When he called me, he asked if I eat a lot in the evening. I should eat less in the evening, he suggested, because it's not healthy.

This time though, my friend brought another farang friend from France. And I was positively surprised. He was a decent and nice guy! If you read this, Mister Lyon, you're a nice guy, I hope you come again!!!

On the way back from badminton, I had a cute taxi driver. Chinese eyes and the typical mullet-style Thai hair. I think he was straight though, as he said nothing more than "krub". He wore a proper white shirt and swimming shorts like the guy above in the picture. WEIRD!!!

I lost all my credit though (if I ever had any) when I tried to pay 54 baht with a 500-baht note. I said "kot tot" like 10 times but he didnt react.

This is my advice for you guys: if you take a taxi in Bangkok at night, you may find cute boys driving, but do not pay them with 500 baht, they are not bar-boys:p

Cute butt!!!

I am quite stressed! On saturday, I am going to Guangzhou with my bf. It's his birthday on Saturday and this trip is my gift for him.

I gave him the choice: check Air Asia and tell me what you like. We pinned it down to Hanoi versus Guangzhou. Guangzhou won.

I have never been to China before so I cant wait to see China. Real urban China. We will also go to Hong Kong for a day, since the bf wants to see Victoria Harbour etc.

I really like this guy!!!

Just after we come back next week, I will fly to New Zealand to work with my old professor for more than 6 weeks....bitchofbangkok will become kiwibitch. Lets see if I can report anything else but that it's beautiful, quiet and cold:)

YES, that's a sexy pose!!!

I got an email from my former flatmate. We shared a home in New Zealand in 2004 and discovered that we grew up only 40 minutes away from each other, in different faranglands though!

The email listed silly questions asked on the Australian Tourism Website and the (supposedly) real answers from the staff. I am not sure they are real, we all know that Aussies like to have a bit of a yarn, yeah?

For all non-Australians, a yarn is in essence a true story which is totally blown up for the sake of impressing others and just having a bit of fun. Best enjoyed having a barbie and drinking a (few) Cascade beer(s). Am I right?

Here we go, a few examples:

Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia ? I have never seen it rain on TV, how do the plants grow? ( UK ).
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.

Q: Which direction is North in Australia ? ( USA )
A: Face south and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you get here and we'll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia ? ( UK )
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney and is milk available all year round? ( Germany )
A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter/gatherers.Milk is illegal.

Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in Australia ? ( France )
A: Only at Christmas.

Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go? ( INDIA )
A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.

Q: I was in Australia in 1969 on R+R, and I want to contact the Girl I dated while I was staying in Kings Cross*. Can you help? ( USA )
A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour..

And then finally, the best:

Q: Can you tell me the regions in Tasmania where the female population is smaller than the male population? ( Italy )
A: Yes, gay night clubs.

I hope you had a good laugh!

Lyon has a great botanic garden btw, although the food is offal...
enjoy China
I'll miss you...

BB said...

No need to miss me Paulo...I will still blog!!! :)

thanks for your concern though:)

BB said...

you say the food in Lyon is offal? I thought it's the capital city of French cuisine...?

Have fun exploring Guangzhou but I think you may find Hong Kong more exciting! I am of course biased as I live here!

PS: if you go to Victoria Peak for the views of Hong Kong DO NOT pay extra to go to the viewing tower at the Tram stop, go next door to the Peak Galleria roof and see the same view for free, there is also an impressive laser show everynight at 8pm from both sides of the Harbour!

offal/awfull it's a joke... the food is very good, but they do eat a lot of tripe etc...
glad to hear you will still be blogging

BB said...

Thank you ommi...we are visiting HK because the bf has never been there....the main purpose is China though:)

Thanks for the tip regarding the view...shall not pay:)

paulo: tripe...sounds like bangkok then...I like meat but prefer vegetables to strange things like heart, lung, brain, tripe etc:)

if someone asked me if i ate a lot in the evening, i'd be like, are you saying i'm fat? haha.

thanks for posting the email, very funny!

BB said...

that's what he's saying. Thais will tell me: you are fat. I am pretty average actually, but Thais openly tell me I am fat.

I dont take it as an offense anymore. I used to though...

aurix said...

yeah we thais are anorexic!

BB said...

no...just have a smaller frame and eat "better" food - AND smaller portions:)

I see many fat ones among the kids at the hiso schools though...worrying!

aurix said...

now that their hiso schools are closed for fear of, how fitting, swine flu, the kids will be sitting at home doing nothing but eat. worrisome indeed.
