Phuket, Thailand III
Phuket is almost coming to an end and I feel like is too early.
Three weeks ago, Nathanael (another friend that I met in BsAs) joined Magne and I. He’s going to Malasya today so we played Chinese Poker the whole night and now, here I am, writing about how fast time goes by and how emotional I get about it.
Last time I remember wondering if I could get sick of the ocean, well, I haven’t, on the other hand I am not going as often as I was going but is fair to say that I go fairly often.
We have been frequently going to a restaurant named “Daily restaurant” which name I will never forget or Magne will never forget . One of the waitress is rather nice and has made her mission to teach us some Thai, sometimes is really confusing some people use different words for saying the same and when I ask I get mixed answers and it gets tricky, besides I think that I am probably below average when it comes to languages, seriously, even though I have a pretty good memory I don’t seem to learn a lot.
I don’t have a camera so I never take pictures (cheap excuse), Magne on the other hand has a camera but never takes pictures, he thought that it was appropriate though to have a memory of the place + our thai teacher .
I noticed some stuff that I found really interesting, Magne, Nathanael and I we are all using the same phrases and using the same words in general, at least when we talk to each other, I also noticed that I have many phrases that I probably overuse a lot or are my standard responses to many situations, I say “You can’t have everything in life”, “c’est la vie (such is life)” a lot… And now thanks to Nathe I can swear in Finish and I have no idea about what I am saying. I wonder if they have noticed that too… Magne just told me that he really dislike when I say “It’s not raining, It is only pouring water out of the sky”, I think that is one of my best ones… I probably have more that I don’t remember or I am not aware of…
In completely unrelated news, Connect 4 got considerably less interesting and even though I am probably not that good I am probably good enough to beat most new players. Nathe and I got into some trouble by playing connect 4, go figure, I rather not talk about it… Shenanigans.
There’s something about saying hello to a lot of people on the street, people that I basically see every day. Somehow I like that a lot, which I find extra weird, since for the most part I thought I wouldn’t like that, I am still impress to the fact that I learned to like salad, not only that, I learned to like bacon too, I had more bacon in two weeks that I had in my whole life, seriously.
I am going back to Hong Kong in 4 or 3 days I am not completely sure, it feels like I left years ago and it feels like I just arrived here, I think that’s what people call Nostalgia. Anyhow, It’s time to move. I am still figuring out what the fuck I am going to do next year and I have very mixed ideas, I thought I had figured it out but I am not sure…
I am very confused about some topics, such as: Politics. Hurts my head because I don’t know what to think and what ideology to support (assuming I have to support one, which most of the times I just do the easy thing: Play Devil’s advocate). I am happy with my decision of not voting in my country though, I wouldn’t know what to vote besides null, and what is the point of voting null anyway… Ugh, I have been educating myself and read The Republic by Plato, which was indeed a good start but there are still many interesting questions and assuming society must live life under a state then the way the state should be gets really tricky, judging by my behavior lately these days I think my brain got exhausted to think so much about this kind of stuff, lately I have noticed myself in a lazy loop which I think I have from time to time, is part of my “cycle” of life.
That’s it, time to call it a post…
