Asia holiday 2008 - Bali and Shanghai

Having spent a few days in Singapore, myself and boyfriend P headed to Bali in Indonesia to chill out for a few days. The following sunset pic was taken at Ku De Ta (Coup d'Etat?), which is one of Bali's best known beach barsThe following pic shows some of the rice fields that seem to occupy much of the Balinese landAfter Bali, we stayed in Shanghai for a few days. The following pic shows Shanghai's Pudong district (and co-incidentally also shows the hotel where I stayed in 2002 and had a bit of fun with a guy called H)Below shows a street in Shanghai's old town which feels very Chinese, although our guess was that none of the buildings are actually very old!The last two pics show "The Bund", which is probably the most prestigious address in the Shanghai, dating back to colonial times at the start of the 20th century. It was interesting to see that almost all the buildings on the Bund were flying the red flag of communist China!While I've been away on this holiday, the financial markets have been a bit "unsettled". So on my return to London next week, it'll be interesting to find out whether I've still got a job or not!

Just curious, but is boyfriend P based in KL for work?

Maybe scrivenerb, but maybe not LOL! You don't really expect me to answer that kind of question do you?

You sort of just did. Did the other guy in his life know about you? Did you ever meet him?

Actually, never mind. I don't care. If Boyfriend P is who I think it is, he's a skank anyway. Hope you're wearing a condom. Good luck with that.

Sorry, scrivenerb, I didn't mean to ignore you. But I think you must be mistaken about the identity of boyfriend P because he's not a skank! Anyway, I haven't met the other guy in boyfriend P's life, not yet at any rate. And he did know about me, well, something about me at any rate.

Take care, GB xxx
