    I love SE Asia and Asian food. Would happily end my days in that part of the world. I spent 3 months backpacking in Thai, Lao, Cambodia and Vietnam. Most lovely, kind, wise and intelligent people, most of whom do not have a pot to piss in! We can learn so much from their culture, philosophy, lifestyle, outlook and natural medicines. Cancer rates in SE Asia are roughly 10% of the West. But Ronald McDonald and Colonel Sanders are getting in there now to change the ratio :-( :-(

    Ditto! I spent three years there. I married a LBFM..........27 years strong now! :fever:

    It's ironic though! My Asian made DSL doesn't smell as nice as my UK made JVM. :hmm:

    That's psychological Lance i.e. the more it costs the better it smells.
    Also your nostrils and taste buds have a lot to do with it revealing whether you're a
    chicken tikka masala or a pho type guy.

    A lot of boys who ended their days there might disagree. May have lower cancer rate but lead poisoning was rampant.

    Sniffing glue and fresh Chinese vinyl is one thing, smelling that old bitumen they use in old fender transformers mixed in with dust cooking on hot tubes is another. I don't smoke, but I love old amps that reek of cigarettes. I love the smell of old heated lacquer used on Old marshall transformers, I love the stains on the fabric, dents, holes etc, a real favorite of mine is beer stains on the chassis that have turned rusty from beer falling through the top vents on an old marshall amp. Missing text ( usually volume ) indicating prodigious use thereof from the faceplates is another personal favorite.
