I’m back in the UK, and I think my body is telling me, ‘thank fuck for that’, in some kind of way.
After 6 days in Bangkok I never really adjusted to the time zone and once back here I managed the best sleep I have had in days.
I’m not sure if some went for a piss-up and didn’t seem to care about the ideas that we should have been talking about to the people that can make things happen.
Personally, I missed a lot of the presentations only because I was jet-lagged to fuck most of the time and didn't want to be caught snoring by someone next to me.
I missed part of day 2 and the group photograph as I just couldn't hack it and went back to the room for a snooze.
I went fully prepared to discuss the possibility of a fiat portal with @blocktrades but ended up buying him some rum ‘n raisin ice cream and talking about life in Arizona.
My conversation with @aggroed went well but I was going to suggest that when picking cards for a battle, they could be sorted into mana size to make it easier to choose them.
It didn't happen again, and we ended up talking about when Untamed was going to be released and if the new cards were ready or not. Some final adjustments are being made but they are more or less good to go.
My five minutes of dialogue with @anomadsoul was about the same as it was in Krakow though I promised myself I would talk more about STEEM and current affairs.
Maybe conventions are piss-ups where your plan about the more serious stuff just goes to shit. While I’m no drinker I did hear some outlandish tales floating back from @goblinknackers about tales from the early hours of the morning involving certain Steemians.
Some things simply cannot be written about and will stay firmly off the blockchain. I truly wish I could join those 4 am beer-drinking outings but alas I would be barfing everywhere and I'm not truly sociable enough to fit into this category of people.
Many have produced a day by day account of what happened so I won’t do this. You don’t want to see the same pictures and read the same story from twenty of us right?
I have just shoved all my more general SF4 photography in one big folder named ‘SF4 - Misc Pics’ that I can pick things out of.
The ladies of South East Asia were a hit! I don’t wish to condemn my own brethren from Europe but I find them bubbly, excitable, approachable and always wanting to engage and chat.
As with last year, I don't feel I made the most of the event, but unlike last year did better this time.
So thanks ladies for putting me at ease. I think I’m following you all by now and will keep in touch with your antics.
As @pennsif asked for more food pictures, well these are from 'the night of STEEM' which was in an outside location at the bottom of a dark alleyway.
@joythewanderer recommended the 'Spicy Salad with Crispy Fish Mow' but it was a little much for me to take. Her spice level far surpasses mine.
@bingbabe eats this Shrimp paste stuff sometimes and it can stink the house out. I wisely avoided it though it did look appetising.
Chicken / Pork BBQ? Does that mean Chicken on the left and Pork on the right? I'm thinking that its all mixed up and there's no differentiation. Those skewers were nothing short of amazing.
Apologies if you as the reader are completely tired of SteemFest 4 blogs. I think you have several more days of it yet. I know I have lots more but it will be directed into topics such as #travel, #tasteem and #urbex going forward.
