When asked at a work event once what I do, a friend overheard and interjected that I “generally loiter”.
Hi from Kuala Lumpur International Airport,
I am halfway through a several-day trip to Asia, having visited Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, continuing to Jakarta. During Christmas season, American Christmas songs are prevalent, even audible while a prayer to Allah flashes on the seatback screen on my Malaysian Airlines flight yesterday. “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” should not resonate here. A less humid Christmas, maybe. As circumstances would have it, I began this trip 10 hours after returning from a business trip to London in which, during an interlude from the chaos at hand, I learned a few all-purpose chants at a Chelsea-Tottenham match, no rendition of which is appropriate for this venue. I look forward to relaying a backlog of stories soon.
