  1. Haha, “NES Energy Drink”

    That RC car is hilarious.

    Great write up Jarod.

  2. Wow Jarod! Looked like a great trip. Malaysia seems to be so colorful and warm. The background in your photos was dope. Track looked small though. Those clubs looked more like a country club then a bar, cool decor for sure. If you need a bag carrier I’m available for the next trip! hahaha.

  3. very proud to my country up in here…
