Chinese Summer

It’s 38 degrees outside. Thermometers are melting all over. That’s the perfect time to get out and play!

Here’s what I’ve been up to over the last month:

    Blake Griffin – Mr Subway!
    It was funny to see all these running and Nike photos, and then an incongruous ngan nam meen photo in the middle of it! Disconcertening.
    (man, the at symbol is weird on these Latin American keyboards)

    @uzbekcelia – I took a quick trip down to Hong Kong after working in Guangzhou on Friday.

    I played tennis. In 38 degrees. Once. Almost died.

  4. Terence says:

    @WoAi – I’ve been running and I didn’t know I had that much water in my body. SO MUCH SWEAT.

  5. WoAi says:

    @T – Well the body is 99.9999% water, didn’t you know! I wonder, do saunas lose business in July and August? Or do people go to cool off!

  6. Terence says:

    @WoAi – there’s a cold room in New Star. Hey, I’ve just given myself an idea.

  7. WoAi says:

    What’s the idea? Go running in New Star?

  8. Terence says:

    No just sit in the delicious 5 degree room.

    WoAi- Regarding saunas i was just thinking the same thing. Somehow, these days, I am all alone in the sauna at my local gym. There used to always be 2-3 people dropping by, most of them interesting.

  10. WoAi says:

    @Heinrich – Sorry to hear you’re lonely in the sauna. Things should pick up in winter, but I guess you’ll be gone. Interesting in what way? I’ve never spent any time in a sauna before!

  11. WoAi says:

    @T – Surprised you had nothing to say about Luke’s comment:

  12. terence says:

    I did! Now.

  13. Heinrich says:

    WoAi- Haven’t you seen the move “Steam of Life” (aka “Tales from the Finnish Sauna”) ?? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1583323/

    It’s a must-see for saunaers!

  14. WoAi says:

    @Heinrich – Is it a gay porn movie?

  15. Heinrich says:

    WoAi- If only! It’s basically naked Finnish men that don’t like to talk about feelings, sitting in a sauna and telling their life stories!

  16. WoAi says:

    @Heinrich – The only experience I’ve had with Finland is Absolut vodka. And I think that’s not going to change any time soon. My parents have just come back from Norway though. Sent you an email …
