I met a Singaporean guy in Vientiane on tthe first night I was there. I was on my way looking for fruit shake. After much effort, I was about to give up.
I walked back to my guesthouse and saw a small stall just beside the GH, i stopped by, this guy asked me: "You want to try some fruit juice?"
The next thing I heard is:" Hey you are Malaysian!"
"Wow, how do you know??"
During the trip whoever i met will guess I am a Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, PRC, Singaporean ect.. just never Malaysian.
Haha. "I know. Because I am a Singaporean." He smiled.
We sat down and chat until late night. Me, him and his beautiful Laotian wife, with uncountable mosquitoes.
"Have you ever think of going back?", finally I asked.
"No. Never. The life in Laos is too relax. I am used to it. I dont think I will go back."
- Pros:Friedly people, peaceful and relax
