i went a little ape today at the local malls. them vendors are so effing pushy, more so than those you come across in Tijuana trying to entice you to go into their seedy strip clubs. they know what to say and when to say it. one girl convinced me to buy 5 pairs of jeans: 3 Sevens and 2 Diesels. sigh. i'm going back tomorrow, for more Diesels and probably True Religion. i've gotten stuff for some friends already and quite a bit for myself. seriously, such a bama.
parents took me out to dinner tonight in the city. the first 3 nights here, mom wanted to basically stuff me with her home cooking, which was totally fine. but tonight, we had crispy duck wrapped in pancakes. it was yum-o!! slightly on the greasy side. one of the things i noticed tho was that they did not serve any of the entrees with rice. so that was a bit disconcerting.
what's also disconcerting to me whilst riding around in the city:
1. the way they drive here. they do not adhere to any type of driving ettiquette. they turn in whatever lane they are in, regardless of incoming traffic or whoever is in the next lane.
2. jaywalkers. i shouldn't ever complain about baltimore jaywalkers because at least they know they're being complete assholes. here, they seem quite clueless about it all. whatever, within a week back, i'll be spewing verbal hate at them bmore jaywalkers and cappers.
3. their hair. seriously. some of them, it seems as though the stylist/barber lost interest in making the sides even so they just walked away and the person is left S.O.L. and the others, they sport the slightly crimped hair look... only it's not by actual crimper, it's by braiding your hair right after a shower and letting the hair loose after a few hours. yeah, that look.
that's all i can think of right now. my brain is pretty fried and i'm tired. i wish i had pix cus of some of the things i see are just so damn hilarious.
*** also a note to my silent fans of the WHERE IS LAN? alot of the pix are uploaded on another computer from another camera (i have a team of paparazzi that follow me everywhere) and i am just so frustrated with the internet line here and i lack the patience to deal with it all so i am skipping tonight. but i will have peter take even MORE of the crowd shots tomorrow... so WOH SHIN NEE! ***
