Do you find difficulties blending in to the seemingly cheerful Asian culture? Do you sometimes find yourself lost in a busy crowd you just can’t relate to? Even after years and years living on the oriental land do you still feel alienated? If you’re not enjoying your life here, look away please. But if you are, please do allow me to share something with you here - my favorite thing to do living here is to watch the Měinǚ Maniacs. The selfie ladies you see on the street know precisely how to fully realize their desires and to be desired publicly. They know how to pose cute, pretending not to give a shit about their larger audience that’s living in the moment with them and watching the whole spectacle. Me, I just shift my gaze a little bit to see the longer view of things… a picture much larger than any of the ones being taken by the beautiful maniacs I live amongst.
