My name is not Konnichiwa – book review

my name is not konnichiwaThis book consists of hilarious accounts of fellow Singaporean blogger Rodney EE’s travel travails.

Rodney, whom I envy, has been fortunate to travel to 44 countries and many more exotic locations in those countries. The countries range from Norway to USA to Vanatau to China to
Japan to India and everywhere else that the earth has land.

He strikes some poses on the great wall of china, gets chauffeured around in China, nearly gets to buy exhorbitantly priced carpets in the middle east, almost gets run over in Vietnam, gets his body turned around and squeezed multiple times a.k.a. getting massaged and in the process tries to learn what female tightness is, watches aurora in the company of polar bears, and tries to speak to the spirits of Shah Jehan and Mumtaz Mahal in India. And he explains all these in great detail with generous doses of humor and mirth.

If you feel down and are in need of mental rejuvenation, read this book.

If you love mild satire, you are in for a treat.
