I am having drinks with 3 ladies. They are discussing a trekking trip to Bhutan which I was keen on following. A bit of the conversation below :
Lady: " Its OK, we do 3 days in Bhutan and then we do another 4 days in Nepal. It will be so cool!
Chindiana : "wait a minute, isnt 3 days in Butan too short? With travelling time you probably have only one day."
Lady B : "its OK we can go through the mountains straight away then come down in a day."
Chindiana : -_-
Lady A : "Why are you looking like that?"
Chindiana : "I dont know about you but I'm not that fit ladies"
Lady B : "Why not? You think it will be tough?"
Lady A : " Aiya, shouls be OK wan la, if you can shop for 8 hours in Midvalley this is not a problem!"
Chindiana : "wtf............ . You SERIOUS?:"
Lady A : " Ya lor! Somemore 8 hours in high heels man!"
Yes they are serious. They've never hiked before. They've never been up a mountain. Their reference point IS ACTUALLY comparing to shopping in an air cond mall. Lady C was quiet as all she wants in Bhutan is to meet the prince who is supposedly the most eligable bachelor in the world. I have excuse myself from the trip which they plan to make in May.
Lady A owns her own employment agency which has offices in Malaysia, Nepal and Thailand. Lady B is one of the most succesful sales directors in the magazine industry, Lady C runs her own consultancy but in May they're all gonna be hurtin' real bad.....
