Hold your horses, Ewe. I usually post the answer on Sunday evening.

I'll give you a hint. It's in Southeast Asia.

The answer: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is about a 5 hour train trip north of Singapore or about a one hour flight.

It is a very attractive, spread out city. I studied at the British Council here. I very much enjoyed Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia. It has mountains, great beaches, jungle, great tropical climate. Kuala Lumpur is famous for the Petronas Tower, which until recently were the tallest buildings in the world.

I was in Singapore and Thailand last year. I would like to go back to Malaysia and visit again.

Ewe- As a Catholic, I would not be hiring escorts. Chastity and obedience to Catholic sexual ethics is more important than momentary pleasure.

If you are in that business, you really should leave it and reform your life.
