Danish is a really tough language.
It sounds like complete garble to me,
and when Thomas, CasparBFG’s brother, asked me how it sounds to my ears,
i told him: Did you watch Avatar? The strange language they were speaking?… THAT’S how it sounds to me!
Even learning how to say ONE WORD (like a dish i like or something)
gets them laughing cos it’s so difficult getting the sounds right!
The other day when i got a bit lost,
ChrisMinus demanded on the phone i read the sign nearest to me.
“Urm shit *couldn’t even read the sign in my head concisely*”
“Come on, just say it, i won’t laugh.”
*babbles some 5-syllable word incoherently.”
“i hate you.”
Most people bike, walk or take public transport in Copenhagen.
Caspar told me how bikes just go around all the time,
like you’ll have one for a few months, someone would steal it,
then you end up with another one for the next few months,
and it happens again.
A hilarious ad promoting the World Cup and a TV channel.
Basically it shows a vibrator and tells girls that the World Cup is here haha
CasparBFG took me on a walkabout around town,
and we passed by his old office
One thing i love about CasparBFG being my tour guide
is that besides the regular sightseeing spots and partying he takes me to,
he also makes sure we run by interesting things he reckons i’d fancy,
like the grafitti walls below!
Shopping in Denmark is crazy expensive.
Shoes that are sold in normal shoe shops (the kind of quality you get in bangkok wholesale) typically cost about RM200-250
Crazy okay, i really cannot justify buying that.
Did buy some pieces in their departmental stores on sale,
but that’s about it.
Cos most of the other stuff on sale was still freaking ex,
and i’ll only dish out extra $ for some Danish designer items!
These pillowcases prollie cost RM200 a piece. Seriously.
So most of the time i just take pictures of nice things that i can’t buy
Went to King’s Gardens where people hang out during the summer.
I’m lucky enough to experience sunny weather while i’m here,
but it’s colder than you think!
At the palace…
It must be so boring to be a palace guard (tho i’m sure to them it’s a great honour)
Imagine standing so stiffly for hours… cry.
