Had a great evening playing pool with Mabel, although I’ve never lost so many times to a girl before! Guess there’s a first for everything, good thing I didn’t put any money or drinks on it ha. She told me during her time in Australia she’s managed to hustle a few people so I don’t feel too bad that my pool skills/luck failed me this time.

Enjoying watching the lightning from the pool. Might I add I wasn’t in the pool, I was reasonably safe sat by the side. However quite fortunately it never rained right where I was and I was surrounded by lightning strikes. Exciting stuff though, storms over hear are about 10 times crazier than ones back home in the UK. The strikes come down with a loud and hard roar that rumbles through the whole city.
Might I add I only captured a tiny bit of lightning here, some cover the entire skyline flooding the out of the clouds with multiple bright strikes all connecting up. If you ever find yourself near a storm definitely take the time to sit back and soak it all in.. Just ideally soak it in metaphorically and be safe behind a window or something.

Looks like Bennys catching some rays and some z’s. Glad to see he’s taking precautions with the shades on but that doesn’t stop me pushing him.. should I ?!
The night began with us gate crashing a house warming party and being warmly welcomed into his rather stunningly styled home with a great view of kl towers from the balcony.
From here we moved to a rooftop pool bar called ‘Aloft’ to meet some more friends. I find it pretty exciting going to clubs high up in the sky and open to the air, let alone it having a pool! These kinda places aren’t common in the small countryside town I come from where the tallest building is probably classed as ‘the 5 story car park’ or ‘the house furthest up the hill’.
Was a fun night being introduced to great new people and new drinking games! I’m not sure of the name but the game was pretty rhythmic and picked up in place as it went along to make it more difficult. It involved each person having a gesture associated with them. If yours came up you would have to clapp twice on the table do your gesture again clapp twice again then make someone else’s gesture to pass on the cycle. While everyone else is clapping against their hands and table to keep the rythm and increase it until someone slips up.
Which for the first 8 games was usually me! My brain just didn’t know how to handle all of it haha but it’s hilarious to watch, especially when you see people speeding through gestures such as shooting themselves and chicken dancing!
Eventually I had a glorious few seconds when I finally survived 2 rounds without being the guy that messed it up.. Time to quit while im ahead, I had already lost so much I had to borrow other people drinks ha
After working in the freezing cold snowy temperatures of Japan for the last month it’s nice to have an afternoon relaxing by the pool reading my book. The Malaysian heat was perfectly comfortable for me on an overcast day but once that sun peaks through the clouds I can almost feel myself sizzle. However I think some people can’t wait to be cooked judging by the woman baby oiled up across from me.
So for anyone interested this is 4th book I’m reading in my push to gain some new skills in the last year. The book is called the ridiculous race and it’s about a couple comedians that challenged each other to a race around the world with no aeroplanes. One of them got a little bit excited with his loop hole in the rules with a jet pack was possible he forgot to ask the designer the flight time (.. All or 30 seconds + likely a loss of limbs).
It’s been a fairly amusing read so far but il let you know if I recommend it once I’ve finished.
