A Trip to Malaysia

It’s quite unorthodox (whatever it means,) of me to post twice in a week.  Must be some kind of stupor (whatever that means.)

I just found out I’m flying tomorrow.  A place none other than Malaysia, home of the Intel chip manufacturing thingie!  Oh, and tea, I guess.  And heroin?Low Yat

From what I hear, there’s a plaza called Low Yat in Kuala Lumpur.  I’ve been told I shouldn’t go there if I wanted to come back to Kuwait.  I’m not sure what they meant by that.  Might it be that it’s 7 FLOORS OF EXTREME GEEKERING GADGETRINGER!?  (whatever that means?)

Oh, and prices are apparently so cheap to the point where I must get a spare credit card incase this one breaks from all the swiping.  My heart flutters at the thought!  The place has its own Wikipedia entry for crying out loud!

Oh and their currency?  It’s called the “Ringgit.”  Even their currency sounds like a rock star drummer!  Make this stop!

I’m overreacting.  *breathes in and out*

I GIVE YOU 500 RINGGITS FOR TEH GTX 280 SLI!  Here’s a ringgit for your troubles, oh and another ringgit to complete your band.  HOW MANY RINGGITS FOR THAT ASUS INSTANT BOOT CORE I7 COMPATIBLE MOTHERBOARD?!!  TELL MEEEEE YOU RINGGIT LOVIN … sorry, here’s another ringgit haha. 

That motherboard!  ‘RINGGIT UP ALREADY!!

I will possibly be ringgitless after this trip, but you only live once, right?

Angel on Right Shoulder:  Bojacob, a ringgit saved is a ringget earned.

Devil on Left Shoulder:  Although I hate him, he does have a point.  Save your ringgits, Bojacob.


Wish me luck :)  So much for the tea farms.  And heroin.  Do they even grow heroin there?  Do I even care?

Nope!  Ringitt on baby!

7 FLOORS OF GADGETS. First time wifes will regret shopping

the angel on my right shoulder told me to take your ringgits to keep them safe for you till you come back...

but i overheard the devil on my left shoulder saying that he's bought a new bazooka and will be using it on my angel once he gets your ringgits...

obviously, he's more protective of the ringgits ;Pp

Bashar: Yes! For the first time I'll be in touch with my feminine shopping side, or something!

ĐǻñĎõøðñ: It's starting to sound like a mythology creature or currency :p I'm sure I've read a fantasy novel where goblins collected ringgits instead of shinies. I do hope I have enough ringgits to sate my desires.

Bo jacob - ive lived in KLfor quite some time - and low yat is a huge mistake. Its a rip off, i dont want to spoil your fun or get into the details :)

Farawa: Wish you posted this sooner :p Still, it was about 100% less of a rip off than Kuwait. Prices were comparable (and often lower) than the US. That's more than good!
