Cool hunting t-shirtsI’m always on the hunt for cute, quirky t-shirts. I can never get enough of them. There are some good ones in town but it’s hard to find ones that have witty sayings/clever designs and are actually comfortable. I’d love to design t-shirts one day; I’ve got some neat ideas. I just need to find a local supplier that has the right t-shirts. In the meantime, I indulge my fantasy by checking out online coolhunter Josh Rubin’s recommendations, such as this one:
Cute tee from http://spicybrown.com
Naturally, I’m bringing along some cute tees with me to Bali. I’m only packing half of my backpack’s capacity. This is how optimistic I am about my planned shopping. But you see, it’s not all for me, I have this long list of people that I want to get gifts for (depending on whether they’ve been naughty or nice! – to me, ha).
Countdown to Bali: seven days! I actually leave on Friday but am spending the weekend in KL first. Weekend plans include flea marketing and watching an Actors Studio play: Life Sdn Bhd. I’m really excited about the play because I’ve always wanted to do theatre in KL. Pretty excited overall about my weekend in KL because it’d be something different from my usual Bukit Bintang/KLCC/Megamall crawl plus I’d be meeting up with new people (person?), which is always very nice!
I’m also meeting up with someone from the BootsnAll travel boards in Ubud. I don’t really know much about this person, other that she’s Malaysian, just like me and she’s travelling in Bali for two weeks this month by herself, also just like me. Just reading her post was so déjà vu that I immediately replied, asking “are you me?” I feel a lot happier that I’m actually meeting a friendly face in Ubud. We don’t necessarily have to travel together but I just appreciate a makan (eating) partner in a strange place. Plus, it’d be great to pick her brain on the sights that she has just seen (she’s currently in Bali as I write this).
There are still a bunch of things that I need to get done before I leave: first-aid kit (be prepared!), rupiah currency, clothes to pack, etc..
I’m rather surprised on how fast this all seems to be. It seemed like a long while away but when it’s here, it’s actually here and I hope the two weeks in Bali won’t go as quickly. I’m also hoping that I won’t get bored, as silly as it may seem. I’m definitely bringing my journal, and my paints. Unfortunately, I can’t bring my binos because it belongs to work. So my bird-watching would be kept to an eye-squinting minimum – *sigh*. I’m also seriously considering of hopping over to Lombok, crossing the Wallace Line and watching wild Australian birds. That would be so cool. We’d see what happens.
