Free beer tomorrow

May 21st 2009

So much for posting in real time, I am already a couple of weeks late. But it was cool while it lasted :-)

I went to Malacca planning to stay a couple of days, but as it often applies to me, I ended up staying a whole week—and more. It just happens, especially when I am Couchsurfing. This time I was lucky enough to find a nice guesthouse with a usable common space. And we really used it: starting from the first night, watching DVD and then chatting on the roof until 5AM :-)

And after that pretty much every night we were hanging out together guests and manager: Chinese dinner, playing pool, beer, Indian dinner, playing darts, beer, take-away dinner, playing poker, beer. The base and meeting point was in the Free beer tomorrow bar, just a few steps from home—although you don’t really need a meeting point when everybody is sleeping at the same place, do you?

I stayed a week in Malacca, I went to Chinatown once during the day and once in the night (see the video for the events of that night). I went to no places of interest in the city. At all.

Still it was one of the best places of my trip: as I wrote before, people are more interesting than monuments :-)

This happens every Friday in Chinatown. Sorry for not holding properly the camera, but 1st the drunk guy all dressed in red downstairs was continuously stomping on the audience, and 2nd I couldn’t help ROTFLMAO. I leave the comments on the event to the readers

Note: I have photos and a video to post here, but the connection is painfully slow so I will update the post when in Bali again.
