I went to the Sunway Pyramid today and bought a new complete. A complete here costs exactly the same as it does in Canada. After I bought it I took a taxi directly to Shah Alam Skatepark. Honestly, it's the best park I've ever seen. I've never been great at skating parks, but I had fun.
I skated in the mini pool the whole time. If I managed to do two tricks in a row, I'd stop because I was out of breath. It was a very hot day and I was sweating a heck of a lot. On my way home I smelled like my old hockey bag.
After you've lived in a foreign country for so long, it may be hard to go back home. This photo speaks for itself. It seems that his reeducation has been a success. Just look at that thousand-yard stare.
My buddy Aziz called me up on Saturday night. He had an extra ticket for the Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix. The only condition was that I had to go to La Vita that night.
Later that night:
Aziz: I have good news and bad news. Which do you want first? Dave: Bad news. Aziz: You have to sit alone at the Grand Prix. Dave: That's not so bad. What's the good news? Aziz: Your ticket is worth RM 1,700 ($565 CDN). The rest of us will be sitting in the RM 500 ($166 CDN) seats. Dave: OMG! Aziz: Your seat actually comes with three free meals. Dave: High five!
I am officially a Formula One fan now. The seats were awesome. I was four rows back and pretty close to the start/finish line. I have lots of pictures and a video of the start of the race. I just forgot to upload them.
