He’s 30, but he’s still got it!

So, Adam turned 30 a couple of days ago on the 27th Feb, and quite frankly we’ve been too busy enjoying ourselves to blog anything for a while.

But just for those of you who think he may have lost it at 30, here is some proof that he’s as sharp a dresser as he always was!

Bad place to break a shoe…

Last week we walked to the top of a pretty big and spectacular waterfall near Luang Prabang in Laos when Sheena’s sandal broke.

Now these weren’t just any old sandals. Oh no, according to the dodgy market we got them from in China, these were “Genuine Ugg Sandals“, “straight from the Ugg factory” and had “real sheep’s wool lining“.

Anyway, the point of the story is that sometimes cheap fake sandals from China can last 5 months, but don’t go walking up massive staircases in them because you might get stuck.

Sheena's broken sandal

* This blog post is dedicated to our friend James who knows how it feels when things break unexpectedly. The poor chap lost 3 pairs of sunglasses in Thailand when they got:

  1. Crushed in a door
  2. Left in a taxi
  3. Melted to his head and then snapped while being unstuck

So you think it’s 2010?

 

Future water!

Future water!

Well you’d be almost totally correct, but not quite…

You see, according to this bottle of water we bought at a market, it’s also the year 2553.

We couldn’t get the whole story, because we don’t speak Thai, but it’s clearly something to do with Worm Holes and the Space Time Continuum and stuff.

We’re both really excited about seeing the future. Will it be a “Mad Max” and “Terminator” style war zone or more peaceful like “Back to the Future 2” and “Minority Report”? Adam has this wild theory about Ants rising up to rule the world but that probably won’t have happened by 2553.

Anyway, we’ll let you know when we’ve seen it.

Cambodian weight loss plan

Never mind the details, we’ll just lets the results speak for themselves. See how Sheena lost 15 stones in only 3 weeks on the Cambodian weight loss plan! Amazing!

And for anyone who just thinks that Sheena bought some ridiculously large Cambodian trousers… you just don’t want to believe… shame on you!

A sign of good Tea

We went to a cracking wee cafe in kampot today and learned the sign language for “Tea”

Not sure if it’s official sign langage, but anything that might help order Tea is fine by us!

Suit you Sir!

It’s not just for the rich and famous you know,  even a couple of unemployed tea lovers like us can afford to get clothes made-to-measure in Vietnam.

Here is Adam sporting his new custom Tweed suit, cut in the Italian style of course.

Pretty sharp my friend

The day we met a legend…

So there we were, just walking down the street in Beijing minding our own business when the man, the legend, Mr Jackie Chan just appeared in front of us.

And what a nice guy he was, he even posed for a picture holding his own camera, the cheeky devil.
