i went to a tour of the Victoria and albert museum, organised by one of the tour guides, it has a gayish slant… meaning we get to see a lot of naked men. haha. its been quite some time since i visited the V&A so it was nice to see they have lots of new stuff on exhibition, which reminds me i must go back again as it would deserve a 2nd visit or more, if ever i find myself at a loose end. 

then i went to a meetup of gay guys( east and west) in soho, quite a large gathering this time, some came from thailand and penang, on holiday here.  long ago there was a group for   white guys who like chinese guys and vice versa. it was like a nursery, for me when i first cameout on the gay scene. for some reason it ended. though i hear in paris it still goes on.

anyway, i was chatting to the white guy who lives in thailand and is here on a visit, and some of the chinese guys in the group were trying to persuade him to come to uk to live, saying he must miss the company of his fellow white compatriots and also being able to speak english to others, but talking to him, i realise he likes being in thailand, where he says he is the point of attraction for a lot of thai guys, whereas over here, he is just another old man. haha.

after which some of us went to chinatown to the fresh noodle factory,in an alley near gerrard st.  i have not been there before, and they showed me where it was, and we bought fresh flat noodles£1each, and cheung fun£1, and i bought 6 char siew pao £2.50.  and i took them to new loon moon, where i bought another 10bihun instant noodles. and so did the others on my recommendation. it was almost sold out. the instant noodles are dry ones, not soup, and are rice vermicelli. i like the taste of them, as they are malaysian tasting.

    Interesting displays! The one with guys toppled in a heap must be hard to do yet the artist captured the details well. Nice share of the art and glad you found Malaysian tasting noodles!

    The concept of the older white man who lives in Asia because he is the centre of attention amongst the locals is not something unique to the gay community.

      it is not unique, but interestingly it is specially applicable to s.e.asia. for older white women, they go to gambia or somewhere there. or the carribean? it seems black guys like older white women, but asians, both asian men and women seem to like older white guys and not older white women.. or is that too much of a generalisation??

        It is a generalisation but also often true. Philippines is somewhere for older white women to find younger lovers and also Bali there is an emerging “sugar mummy” economy. But generally the Caribbean I think. Older men looking for young gf are all over Asia

        philippines and bali for the older white women!! that is new to me. well, that must be good news for the older white women , the so called cougars. haha. some where else apart from ghana and the caribbean for the older white women to go for. haha. and they get to have more variety of types to chose from as well.
