I don't know if this is just some weird confluence of events but occasionally, as I bike to work I get the distinct, sensation that I am back in Malaysia/Thailand. Something about the amount that I'm sweating, the smell of exhaust and some kind of funky fuel additive just transports me across the pacific ocean and drops me off on the streets of Bangkok or KL.

Now I just have to find some cheap and delicious roti, to complete the experience.
