I made an impulse buy of a $30 Elvis suit 3 weeks before leaving Australia in Jan 2008 to travel for a year.
It's crap....and now it's coming with me.
I don't sound like Elvis, look like Elvis, or sing like Elvis.
I am Crap Elvis.

Indo Ghetto - Crap Elvis in Bali

As you can tell by the photos below, it's Xmas Day. OK, so there's no pine trees, turkey, tinsel, Santa, bad socks, dodgy jumpers, or The Sound of Music on tv, but trust me, this is Xmas Day Bali style.

Beautiful waves Serangan style. About to be ruined by some ugly surf style.

Thinking about it.

Sod it. It's Xmas.

Nobody was Kung Fu fighting: Crap Elvis in Hong Kong

OK, just squeezing some free net access in at HK airport so it's another slap and dash photo post.
Just about to head to Bali for a month of surfing, writing, and maybe even a little rehearsing for the Parkes Elvis Festival (Australia) performance. Maybe even update the wordy bits on the blog......or maybe not.....this body isn't going to massage itself!

World's Biggest Outdoor Sitting Buddha (the guy at the top, not the bottom, of the photo)

I know...you've seen one rubbish Elvis-suit wearer poledancing in a cable car, you've seen 'em all.

Blending in like a local.

The regulars on the train to "The Peak" were obviously used to how steep it is.

At "The Peak." Like most tourist lookouts, you have to pay for the telescope. I have since found that by simply standing a lot closer to the thing you are trying to view, you get the same effect.

Hong Kong icon. And the Star ferry.

This is when I realised our hotel wasn't the classiest.

Love Mao Tender: Crap Elvis in China

The Great Wall of China (and the Great Tool of Australia)

In a wall-naming vote, "The Not Too Shabby Wall of China." only just lost out.

It kept the Mongolians out for hundreds of years. It kept a $30 Elvis suit out for about 10 minutes.

Made a silly mistake when I ordered the Birds Nest Stadium instead of the birds nest soup. Could be doing the dishes for a few days to pay that bill off.

Gripped by Olympic Fever. Not quite as nasty as Bird Flu or SARS.
Demonsrating the Breaststroke outside "The Water Cube." It's moves like this that made Phelps what he is today.

The plan was if I stood really still, no-one would notice. Later police questioning suggests otherwise.

Mao portrait overlooking Tianneman Square.

I'm collecting dead leaders. With dead Lenin already off the list in Moscow, it was time to add dead Mao. Only dead since 1976 so the smell wasn't as bad. Here I am in front of his mausoleum (Mao-soleum?). Full military uniform allowed inside. Wig and glasses denied.

In forbidden clothes in the Forbidden City.

Maybe they could protect the railings that protect the relics, by putting some more relics in front of the railings.

How many times must I say this...
