Sixth Seal

I’ve been reading the blog Sixth Seal for years. Originally, Malaysian Poh Huai Bin caught my eye because he and a friend were posting about experiments with various legal and illegal drugs. It seemed bold and revolutionary and a good way to find new drug slang. Now I read it because his prose is straightforward, his pictures interesting, and his insights into life in a country very different from mine feel edifying. It’s like he’s my penpal and doesn’t know it. : )
