A very long ramp?

Imagine driving up it

Those people are nuts, trust me... I have been travelling on local buses, the kind of one you see in the pic... and if there happens to be 2 then they start Racing... and I tell you.. they are like travelling 90-100 mph or even over (no speed laws) and literally Bumper to Bumper!!!

If the one in front breaks for some reason, then they're both history! And wont be surprised if there are some missing nuts on the tires even!

Re: What do Asians miss in Switzerland?

I just thought of more:

- cheap and highly skilled manicurists!!!!!
- a good foot reflexalogist
- cheap massages!

Can you tell that I desperately need to relak?

Or QB house - $10 Singapore dollars (about 7 CHF) for a 10 minute haircut. Good if you just need a trim and nothing else!

Did they have it in other countries besides Singapore? I know it originated from Japan.

Re: What do Asians miss in Switzerland?

I've had some wonderful trips and experiences in Asia, but I bet no one misses the creatures that were listed on msn today as the worlds most dangerous. These are the rough figures of fatalities every year in Asia. Mosquitoes, up to 1,000,000. Snake bites, approx 100,000. Rabid dog bites, approx 50,000. I was very lucky once when I nearly rode a motorcycle into a buffalo or cow sleeping on a country road in India. I had another lucky escape when ladyboy nearly kissed me in Patpong. Mind you, so did he.

Relaxed multi-culturalism, which, sadly, is not as common as before in my country of origin:

Re: What do Asians miss in Switzerland?

Miss the noise, chaos, overcrowding and craziness of day to day living.....
On a more serious note, miss shopping late into the night
The noise, colour and warmth of asian people
The large number of local holidays..which you miss here!!
regularly going out with the office lot for a beer or drinks

Aidil Fitri - the celebration at the end of Ramadan. Even though I'm not a Muslim, I enjoyed visiting Muslim friends and sampling their traditional cooking, chilling and chatting with them.

Happy Diwali to all Hindu EF members!

May the light of peace, joy and good health shine upon you and your loved ones.

I miss visiting Hindu friends, eating murukku, omapodi and all sorts of yummy curries and thosay.
