    [–] General Chatter/Meetup Thread - Week of November 19 iswearidk 1 points ago in solotravel

    Riding a motorcycle is easy, but riding safely in Vietnam... hmm maybe a little bit tricky, our traffic condition isn't for rookie riders :p Going around northern routes on a scooter/vespa is doable, but again it's not for a novice rider, since a scooter is an urban vehicle, not quite suitable for touring/long trips, especially in mountainous area where the road condition sometimes can be off-roadish and a lot of passes which require engine braking for maximum safety (scooters only have normal brake)

    If any of you guys here want to have a good look at what you should and shouldn't do when joining the chaotic traffic of Vietnam, I just wrote a blog post that might help you out https://vietnamesefacts.com/how-to-survive-vietnamese-traffic-like-a-local Feel free to ask me anything about Vietnam here, I'm a native and will try my best to help you guys :D

    Why haven't you visited Vietnam already? It's cheap, and since you're in Malaysia it's just a 3-hour flight away! If you're into riding, you should try a motorcyle trip around Northern area with tons of passes and beautiful mountainous view. I just write a blog post about how to participate in Vietnamese traffic safely!, if you ever plan to visit Vietnam, just check it out, I think it might be useful for you :)

    [–] /r/malaysia daily random discussion thread for June 04, 2017. iswearidk 1 points ago in malaysia

    Hi guys! Is there any reasonably cheap and reliable way to go to bukit jurga for those who don't have a personal vehicle? Me and my friend are both expat staying in KL so our only way to go around are public transport and taxis. We're planing to have a paragliding session there. The best I can think of is grab hitch, but I don't think I can book the return trip, and traditional taxis are kinda expensive :c

    Idk but whenever there is someone next to me I can't pee at all, even when my bladder is going to explode. It's not that I'm afraid of someone accidentally see my dick, my brain just seems to shut the piss flow when there is people around. Going to a private booth and it immediately gets back normal just fine. Weird eh?

    [–] So this is how you catch an Eevee iswearidk 9 points ago in pokemongo

    I'd love to have that but game dev doesn't want that because it shortens the lifespan of the game, and that's harder for new players to catch up with the old ones. That's one of the reason RTS games like starcraft aren't popular anymore these days, because people have too much information from the internet and the metagame becomes obsolete so quickly after every patch.

    [–] Woman killed after crane hook falls onto car along Jalan Raja Chulan iswearidk 5 points ago in malaysia

    Does this kind of accident happen frequently in Malaysia? I've just been here like 1 month and this happened right next to my office. I don't think my daily commute bus line going near any construction site (blue gokl) but I guess I'm going to use monorail from now on, just to be sure :'(

    Hi /r/malaysia. I'm coming to KL tomorrow for work and will stay there at least 1 year. Which mobile carrier is the best for me who don't actually need to call much but use quite a lot of data for social media/reddit?

    Well you could try Làng cổ Đường Lâm (Đường Lâm old village) in Son Tay district, 44 km (27 miles) from Hanoi. Google Maps link.

    You can have a quick look at it here..

    [–] Is it hard or easy for a vietnamese local to tell a vietnamese american apart? iswearidk 1 points ago in VietNam

    Your accent is fine, but locals might still recognize you easily from the way you talk, especially your choice of words and common expressions. It's not the hard part tho, you will be able to get used to it in no time I think.

    Being able to speak Vietnamese is a big advantage, so you won't have any trouble blending in with locals. Just try to understand and aware of the most significant cultural etiquette, avoid doing things people would frown upon. Most Vietnamese men love drinking, so if you have a good alcohol tolerance it's another big ass plus.

    Even locals will have a hard time buying stuff without getting rip-off if they aren't veteran consumers, so don't do that alone. Ask someone to go with you if you want to buy anything that isn't in supermarkets or shopping malls. Theft is more common in the southern, so you should keep that in mind, especially if your upcoming destination is Saigon (HCM city). source: i'm a local.

    [–] Mind helping me search for motor vehicle data? iswearidk 4 points ago in VietNam

    The official site of Department of Transportation only has the data of 2012 and 2013. I can't find credible sources of other years.

    Here is some quick vocabulary for you to understand that table:

    Vietnamese English
    Phương tiện cơ giới đường bộ Road vehicles
    Đăng ký mới New vehicles
    Tổng số Total
    Ô tô Cars
    Mô tô Motorcycles
    Cộng Sum

    That was a cab. Actually there were also 2 traffic cops hanging around at that intersection, one was walking toward the scene near the end (the man in yellow-ish uniform)
