I’m in Saigon. I’ll be back after tax day. The yoyo scene here is a rich kid’s secret society around here. Nobody wants to stand out. It’s like fight club. First rule of yoyo: hide it! Screw that. I’m proud to walk around with my YYE bags that have off-strings hanging off them and a yoyo holster on my belt loop! Gonna show those kids to be proud to throw! Then again, I’m sure they will humor the “stupid American”
I have to keep this short. Data here is unreliable. The YYE iPhone app is my savior right now.
If you need to get ahold of me, please get voxer and use the text option. Voice and images are unreliable but small packet data has a much better success rate. Please be aware of the time zones. I’m in Vietnam right now! Text message fees are stupid high!
Went to a yoyo store near the resort town I went to today. The gnarwal and cascade in my pocket was worth more than that little spot’s entire inventory. So much for the first yoyo store in Vietnam. They have 3 other locations so one better not suck
I will be going to another store in saigon(reported in yoyo news) Tuesday afternoon to see what I can get! They have loop360s in stock. I’m gonna check inventory before I go.
I’m not allowed to mention these brick and mortar(well that may be a bit extreme) shops since they also have an online presence. If moderators will allow it this time they might make an exception for me but they will also let me know too. If they do allow it will be name only, not a URL
Anyhow. I’m otherwise being rather still in high heat and humidity, sweating like a pig. So are the locals!
