Zombies pounding against the shopping mall's glass doors

Poking around the center of Kuala Lumpur a bit more today. Only a high of 33 degrees today, the moisture is actually lower today and there's the occasional waft of air down the streets. Just as you start to imagine that maybe, maybe its a breeze it dies down, but still, better than nothing.

Began my day with the sumptuous breakfast buffet at the hotel. Waffles and an abundance of fresh fruit. Hallelujah, brothers! Then out into the hustle and bustle for shopping. People everywhere. My first stop was Isetan, a Japanese department store where I scored some shirts. As in "not tshirts". Actual shirts. Seems Japan is more of an XL and even XXL country than Malaysia. Who knew?

Now online from a café where I'm having some fruit juice while hugging the air conditioner. Soon more shopping, at two or maybe even three different malls. Looks like they stay open a lot longer here, so there's plenty of time. Stamina is more the issue, I think.

I found a Tower Records that had racks and racks of TV show DVD boxes, at very affordable prices. Unsure if they will play at home though. Does anyone know?

Det ska finnas ett matematiskt geni som heter Adi Putra i Malaysia som är typ 10 år vilken man verkar exploatera ganska rejält. Har du sett någon av hans produkter där? En produkt är piller för hjärnan som gör att man blir smartare, röda och blåa för vänster och höger hjärnhalva :-)

Du behöver en spelare som klarar Reg 3-skivor. Jag vet med bestämdhet att min gör det (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon-import FTW). Min DVD-spelare har en speciallösning dock. Men om du har en regionsfri spelare borde den ju klara det.

Steve: nix. Men det vore cool att hitta.

Hana: där cool är det viktiga ordet.

Steelwheels: fänx. Fick dock höra att malaysiska dvd:er med största sannolikhet är kraftigt censurerade, så jag lägger ner det projektet. Har dock hittat en liten Spiderman-pryl åt dig :)
