Ok I have to be brief with some subjects since I haven’t updated in ages and I’m off back to Spain soon sooo.
One late evening on the way home around February I heard someone behind me calling out.
Laowai means foreigner.
SO I look around and there’s this other foreigner guy there in a long black coat, dark sunglasses (it’s well past getting dark hours) an earing in his ear an his long hair tied back. He looks like some rocker from the Rolling stone’s era.
He then begin a conversation with me, obviously drunk, but it was amusing none the less. Now when someone like that invites you back to his place for some beers (or juice in my case) one would normally politely refuse due to his crazy appearance, but then that wouldn’t make a fun interesting Blog entry now would it?! Also I had just watched “Yes Man” so I was kinda persuaded by that.
On the way there I start getting worried when he asks of my sexual preferences
“ You’re not gay are you, cus I’m not gay, Just looks weird for an old man to take a young guy back hehehehe”
When we got in he had this dvd playing , Layer cake (gangster film). He suggested continuing it. After talking throuihg mot of it ad telling me of his adventures around the world he sees a guy get shot in the face “Nasty, Oh I know something you’ll get a kick out of” he says.
He goes nto his bedroom and re-appears later with a couple of replica guns, at this stage I had my keys between my knuckles just in case lol. He kept on freaking me out with stories of being in a maximum security prison for some crazy fighting stuff and doing impressions of mad monkeys and falling over drunk. He had this routine, when he came in he took a leak, then had some whisky then went with me on the balcony. He repeated thi process 4 times in the 2 and a half hours I was there. It was very interesting and fun experience in the end, though a bit freaky. I managed to get out in the end by saying it was late yada yada, so he was like “ok ill let you be on your way, but you haven’t stolen anything have you? Cus if u have id kill you” hehehe what a lovely guy, ^_^
Went with most of the studio and friends to see the movie avatar in 3D!!!! Was fantastic, my fave movie now! Loved every minute, I know it’s just a movie and not worth mentioning in a blog but wow WHAT A MOVIE!
Me and Louis would sometime go to down town to see the sites, one day a couple of girls came up to us in the street and started talking to us. They were polite and all, but one girl just kept unloading a barrage of questions, it was more like an interview than a conversation! After a while they invited us to go for some tea with them, luckily Louis had read about these sort of women, they take you to tea houses here, then when the bill comes it would cost you a ridiculous amount of money apparently paying for the “girl’s time”. If you don’t pay they get these massive blokes onto you. They should pay the guys since they are sooo crazy about western men lol. Warren phoned up mid conversation to ask us to play pool in the evening so we had that as an escape plan. Later on 5 other girls in the park asked us to take their photos, so we did then they got into a conversation with us again like the last lot, this time a bit less interview like. We couldn’t accept their offer of going with them to see the Chinese circus due to meeting up with Warren, apparently after doing some reading that turned out to be some sort of a scam too where they’d buy the tickets for you then say it costs a ridiculous amount of money.
It was a bit disappointing thinking you were the man walking through town and getting girls flying at you from all sides and having to turn them down and then finding out they were scams. Lol
Later we met up with Warren, he took us to a nice restaurant where we at some lovely frogs legs, they weren’t half bad actually, taste a bit like fish mixed with chicken, though the little bones can be off putting. Later through the eal they started up some Karaoke (KTV it’s called here) and this man entertained everyone singing a traditional Chinese song vry very badly, so badly this guy from the other table (one of his friends) turned to us and was like “bu hao” (not good) and doing the thumbs down singnal with a look of disgust over his face.
We later wnt home for bed, pheeew what a long Sunday.
