today is saturday, august 14, 2010. currently, i am in the country of singapore, and it is pretty damn sick! it’s a very modern city and full of culture and life. it reminds me of hawaii a little, but just seems more advanced. i really am enjoying it here. i am staying at a little hostel, that i admit is not the best, but it’s a bed and a shower, and at the end of the day that is all that matters. the hostel is located very near a place called arab street, and it’s an older neighborhood and is very cool. it’s a very nice change of pace to see different ethnicities besides koreans. i mean, in hawaii there are tons of different ethnicities, but here it’s different. i see musilms, arabs, indians, chinese, malays. it’s such a cool atmosphere.
singapore is pretty much a shopping addicts dream. it’s insane. there is one specific street that is about 2 miles long, and it literally is lined with stores. not just stores, but big shopping malls. one after the other, underground and above ground. it’s insane! i have no money and im not that interested, but i do have to admit, hawaii and america suck in variety. uniqlo, zara, topshop and h&m are super rad stores that they lack. besides that i’ve been touring around the city. i’ve seen little india and chinatown, which is self-explanatory. i can’t really explain it to you in words. you have to be there physically, to see the sights, smell the smells and hear the sounds.
i am heading to kuala lumpur, malaysia tomorrow morning, and will be staying there for four nights. kuala lumpur is the cheapest place on earth to stay at 5-star hotels. i booked 2 different suites at 2 different hotels. hahaha so stoked!
