Where are the attractive people in Kuching?So here’s the situation: you’re one of the only two single gals in a party heavily dominated by guys. The other single gal happens to be youse Favourite People; all the male attention onto you; no skanky hoes to steal your thunder. Should be a blast, right?
In theory, yes… but in practice where the men are local – HECK NO.
All they did was huddle in a group, giggling while occasionally sneaking glances at us. I tried many times to strike up a conversation but I might as well be talking to a wall. How could a large group of late twenty-something guys be so shy? SO BORING. Lame.
After a while, they kept referring to me (within ear-shot) as the German Girl – “Hey, the German Girl’s back!” How that came about was a totally lame joke on their part, not even worth writing about it.
“Where are the girls? Where are the girls?” we kept whispering to each other.. Good grief, bring on the skanky hoes!! More importantly, where was the BOOZE? At least we could have our own fun – sigh.
The other part of the party was an older married couple and of course, the host and his family, who were infinitely more interesting than the dull local guys but all they wanted to talk to me was about work. AAAAAAaaaaaaaaahhhh!!! It’s Friday night! It’s been stressful in the office AND in the field – could I have some space from it please???
After the party, we decided to hit the town for some much-needed booze. But ha ha haaa… silly me, I had forgotten how lame Kuching nightlife could be. We checked out a couple of pubs, and were so dispirited by the mass of unattractive people who either
a) huddled in large groups, giggling and gawking at us
b) were under the delusion that they were “dancing” to lame MTV music. I like to check out hot babes shaking their booties as much as everyone else (don’t you? Oh. Me neither) but as much as wobbly flesh was on display and a-shaking desperately, it just wasn’t fun to watch, no. I got so sad. They weren't even hot.
So we went home.
I really need a long-term holiday from Kuching.
