Anyway, there were seven of us who spent the two nights there, including a birthday boy who turned 21 on Saturday. No, there was no repeat episode of drunken prawn, thank you very much, to those of you who asked! ;P
We spent almost the whole of Saturday at this water theme park called Wild Wild Wet. Nothing too fantastic; I only screamed on this one ride, where two of us sat on a boat-like device and slide down a 75 degree slope at a roller coaster descending speed.
The park was pretty small that we went around and tried everything at least twice! Still, I had a fabulous time. We were wet from the rides and from the rain, which was pouring non-stop right till we left the place at 3 p.m.
Something that struck me as particularly interesting was how our group walked hand in hand almost everywhere we go. I mean, I have done this with them before when it was a smaller group, like 3 or 4 of us, but not like this! Our elbows interlocked and we walked in one long line, obstructing some of the human traffic on the walkways.
We even formed a circle when we floated on giant floats along the Lazy River and needless to say blocked the river way.
Of course, we weren't that selfish to intentionally do that. We de-linked our hands whenever people want to pass us by. Then we struggled against the currents and manoeuvered with some difficulty to join to form again the circle of gay men on floats.
Ditto when we were on the streets.
Even though I have stopped being self conscious about how I act and behave in public, I still find it hard to believe that I was actually doing that in public. My other friends didn't give a damn as well.
There might be some stares from the other passersby but I don't think I noticed because I was having too much fun talking and laughing with them!
Imagine locking your
I actually don't mind doing it and most probably would, if the other person doesn't mind as well. ;P
But I am not sure, somehow, I feel it is quite unlikely. Strange even. Out of place, if I were to do in KL.
I am not saying that Singapore here is more open-minded or more liberal. Or maybe it is, to the straight couples. I have seen people kissing everywhere, on MRTs or even behind advertisement boards.
And of course, not forgetting this little incident I saw on the MRT.
It's just that well ... showing signs of affection in public in Malaysia seem to be frowned upon.
Many many moons ago, I have written something similar here. Which explains the title post.
What do you guys think?
