    Blame Real Madrid. I've been keeping myself well inebriated so as to not having to deal with their suckitude.

    Actually, yeah, coming soon. As soon as I can find my trusty dictionary.

    If anyone is wondering what the legendary Laviathan of wuxia expertism appears like in real life, I invite you to envision this:

    First, imagine a hybrid human of Japanese + Korean descent, with spikey hair.

    Then, imagine further bybridizing this human with Mexican flair and equally spikey hair.

    That, mi amigos, is how I would describe the real Laviathan.

    TO everyone,

    Anyone still have the Friends of JinYong forum (or whatever it is called) that we used to submit our pics and hosted on Lanny's website?

    Mine was lost in an old desktop which died.

    And I emailed Lanny which never replied

    Thanks for the help.

    I wanted to know about his mien, and his speech etc, rather than his looks....
    e.g. does he sounds like a Yoda or a han solo?

    The durian tasting was a highlight! Thank you for that.

    While we're past the prime of this forum, there are/were numerous members from Singapore. Some of them probably live on your block

    The SPCNET facebook group started by Ken is a good place to get to know people more.

    I just realized I never posted the details about my meetup with Laviathan (from 14 years ago!). Sorry about that. Partly because we didn't talk much about wuxia (yeah I know); instead, I was having some issues with my travel companion and Lav was being a good therapist (he is quite multi-talented) But on the occasion of our wuxia discussion, I do remember this exchange:

    PJ: Why did you rank Yang Xiao and Fan Yao in the same level as Xuanming Elders, when the latter crushed the former in one palm exchange?

    Lav: Imagine I'm going to fight Mike Tyson. My right arm might be able to hit as hard as Mike Tyson, but does that mean the rest of my skills are on par with him? Just b/c Xuanming Elders excel in one area, doesn't automatically make them far superior overall.

    BTW, I am one of the people who agrees there isn't much gap between them.

    I think I also asked Lav if he thinks post-castration Lin Pingzhi would be able to overcome Ren Woxing, seeing how easily he disposed of Yu Canghai, and IIRC even LHC thought he would suffer a similar fate (probably underestimating himself). I don't remember the exact discussion, but Lav thought no, RWX would prevail.

    It was a great meetup for me. I wish we had more time to sing karaoke and do other things. I was in Amsterdam, thanks to Lav for coming from another city to meet me. Naturally, he gave me a tour of the famous Red Light District; it was interesting how liberal the Dutch are about sex workers (just another job).
