Coffee bean @ kumho asiana, Saigon

I'm glad that Coffee Bean took over Highland Coffee's space at Kumho Asiana. It's just s stroll away from my office along Le Duan Boulevard.

Why do I like Coffee Bean? Well, back in 2005-2008, my banking colleagues and I used to stroll over to CB on Jalan P.Ramlee in Kuala Lumpur. It's where we bitched and moaned and lamented - basically just to let off some work steam, and then it's was back to the 9am-8pm grind. The favourite food among us was the Brek-o-day comprising of eggs, bacon and toasted bread.

Today, my favourite meal at CB in Saigon is the Spiced Chicken with baked potato. A wholesome meal by itself just a tad below 100,000VND or USD5.

The best part is I get Free Wifi here - something that we don't get in KL. Actually, most places in Saigon have free wifi! Something for the Malaysian government to think about.

But in true Buaya form, the best best best part of sitting in CB @ Kumho Asiana is that it's located in an office block with many top notch tenants. This is the place to watch hotbabes walk past, especially the Koreans and ANZ bank gals... Ahem!

Buaya69 says, "There will be more hotbabes and good food when the Kumho foodcourt opens, so mouthwatering, muahahahahar!"

Where was I on Sept. 11, 2001?

Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. I didn't even know of it until I arrived at the office the next morning. The mood was generally of shock, unbelievable, sadness... There wasn't any mood to work even though we were at the other side of the planet, here in tiny Kuala Lumpur.

Well, there was a moment that morning after, a few of us wanted to beat up a guy for being truly insensitive and spouting nonsense on the tragedy in the office; but we didn't because we felt that things will sort out itself as none of us respected him anyway. (A few years later when he resigned, there was a general sigh of relief all over. Now that I am in a position to hire people, I vow never to recruit a non-team player no matter how technically good he is.)

I dedicate this simple poem to the survivors of 9/11, because living is harder but life is a gift - let's use our time wisely.

The clouds of dust have settled but not my heart
Instead, storms of distrust opens outward
How then this changed my soul.
But live we must and ask not where was God
Instead, focus on the now for the future will follow
How the past controls is really up to me
I thus choose life and may it be fruitful, amen.

Buaya69 says, "Tomorrow I fly, may the stewardess' please my eyes. Muahahahar!"

Underwear discrimination

I live in an apartment and can see across into my neighbours living and 2nd bedroom in the other block. Likewise, they could see into all my rooms, from the living, master and 2nd bedroom.

Since I have been here for 1.5 years, I have seen many men dressed down only in their boxer shorts walking around in their homes.

Question - why is it permissible for men to show off their bouncy tummy and dark nipples, walking around in boxer shorts, but women have to dressed up?

This is discrimination! They should be allowed to walk around in their lingerie...

Now, where's my camera?

Buaya69 is so stressed from work that he's thinking pure nonsense now...
