I don't know how having relevant education to include a college degree would hinder one's career.Not to malign those in this career, but there is the stereotype of the job and those who hold it. If I'm interviewing someone who's held an entry-level position for 5 years... actually, I'm very unlikely to interview someone who's held an entry-level job for that long. I'd feel they have no initiative. Five years and no career progression? It's usually cheaper for companies...
At the end of the day I don't mind tipping waiters; it's everyone else who has their hand on my wallet that I don't like. Seems to me the number of jobs whose workers expect tips has grown exponentially over the years. Why must I tip a cabbie but not a bus driver? Tip a hair stylist but not a mechanic? Tip a barista but not the soda jerk who made my banana split?
I quickly grew weary of the typical ones like those in the States. I like 'em really raunchy. Bangkok's Patpong, Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza. No-hands bars are great. Tokyo has some great clubs in Roppongi and Shinjuku. Some have audience participation shows - the others applaud very politely when you're finished. Pink salons provide an interesting take on table service. Actually the clubs in Tokyo are more like sex clubs and less like strip clubs.
Brazilians have the deepest vaginas. Just sayin'.
Read?! You're kidding me. Just wear this alpha male shirt.
Though I'm not a Malthusian I recognize that resources are finite. And they shouldn't be wasted. I suspect the irony of fall-apart, resource-depleting shoes is lost on its tree-hugging maker. Anyway, I've traveled and lived in many third-world countries and flip flops suffice. For me, too. You can pick up new ones for a buck or two.
Two weeks? There?! It's known as SingaBore for a reason, ya know. Two and 1/2 days at the most.There have been many comments in favour of SE Asia, and I concur. Southeast Asia is a good value for money, and the same can be said for much of South Asia - Bhutan and the Maldives are expensive.A week in Cambodia (Phnom Penh & Siem Reap) and then a week either in southern Thailand, or Burma, or Vietnam - or 4 days in northern Thailand and the remaining days in Laos. Two...
Memories Of Murder Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance I Saw the Devil You can watch all of 'em on youtube.
You ought to check out the Pusher trilogy.
I have three bidets in my flat. This one. Replace the regular seat w/ it, attach to the water line, plug it in, and squirt away. Not too expensive if you already have the electrical outlet. It has changed my life, mostly for the better. But nowadays i can't holiday in any country that doesn't have some type of sphincter washer. In SE Asia and the ME you can often find a bum gun (a hose & spray nozzle) that works pretty well... provided you have decent aim. If you...
