This has been sitting in the Drafts folder for so long that I no longer remember what I probably intended to say.

Tiger Airways is like Southwest but with fewer frills, like a jetway and legroom.
If you’ve ever flown Tiger Air, you know what I’m talking about. They’re even more barebones than Southwest or Spirit or Ryanair, as having all the parts of the plane is irrelevant while flying. They get bad reviews (though I can’t say I ever experienced anything I didn’t expect from a budget Asian airline), and funny reviews.
Tiger flew out of the “budget” terminal in Singapore (yes, they differentiate their terminals that way) and the security was so cursory it was clear they didn’t give a damn if the cheap and/or poor people got blown to bits. The terminal was basically an indoor hawker stand, and boarding was a mess. You walked outside to the stairs to the plane; they weren’t going to bother with weather protection of any kind, or a climate controlled jet bridge. Not for the lower class people having the temerity to fly. At least we were all leaving the island. I’m sure that was viewed as a good thing.

Met Jesus and Bobby Taylor last night at the Four Seasons. Yes, really. Only in HK.
I remember Bobby Taylor. I don’t remember Jesus at all.
Started off the evening with dinner at the American Club with a couple of friends and our table was the only table in the place with actual Americans. It was a night of jazz, drinking, and me just soaking it all in.
I wish like hell I’d kept up with the friend who invited me along that night. I miss her.

Afternoon w/Zi Teng. The power and ability to say “no” defines privilege â€“ it has nothing and everything to do w/money.
Spent a couple of afternoons with them and attended one of their monthly meetings. Still a huge experience for me, one that I haven’t completely written about yet. Though it did inspire this blog post about the concept of “no.”

Do a Google search for “homeless escort.” Yay for me!
I think this blog was coming up at the top of the searches at that time for that phrase.

From an agency site: “…dedicated to the indiscriminating gentlemen seeking escort services…” For those men who just don’t give a damn!
I still love making fun of how agencies mangle their marketing. Before anyone accuses me of making fun of non-native English speakers, plenty of US agencies make the same mistakes, or worse. This one is just particularly funny to me.
