Been a long time

It’s been very long time I’ve posted my last post here. A year I guess.

Time passed by so quick.

From an geek working in the office having unhappy life.

I now live on the island with my wonderful boyfriend and lovely cat.

From a girl who scared of deep water became an Advanced Open Water Diver

More exciting things happened during a year, I couldn’t write it all in one shot.


Well, I don’t expect any of my followers to remember me. But if any of you do, please know that I wish you all well!

Back to when I was working in the resort. There are a family with two little girls stayed with us for a week. I fell in love since first minute I saw them having our welcome “ice cream” There were so innocent. The older sister’s name Jasmijn and the younger’s name Zoe. They have different personality. Zoe seems to be a little bit shy while Jasmijn is more friendly.

They seem like normal little girls. But what surprised me is “The hug”. I walked them to the room on their check in. After explanation about facilities and saying good bye. The girl ran to me and gave me little hug. It was Jasmijn! Her mother claimed that she loves hugging which is lovely.

Our relationship seems to grow, Jasmijn showed up another day, gave me morning hugs and spent almost rest of her day around me.

Leaving job could cause stressful sometimes especially when you don’t feel to give a damn at that job any more. But it’s not time to leave, either by the contract to responsibilities.

Today I really do feel my job dragging me down and makes me stress. I tried to do things but nothing is entertain me. I couldn’t even sleep, feel terrible.

My boyfriend is being helpful and cheering me up. But that’s not enough. I need to get myself out of the house and kick out the stressful. I finally took a ride with him to downtown, drop him at Thai School and drive to Nira’s Bakery. I need desserts!

I think I haven’t update this blog since the day I arrived Koh Phangan for second time. I picked up by my friend from the pier and got to a big and cozy jungle house in the middle of nowhere. The house is so lovely and comfortable. But there’s no internet. I was living ( not completely ) unplugged for a few days. Was great though!

I got a job in hospitality as an assistant manager which is totally different from the degree I hold at the moment. I’ve been working there for a while Things has changed and changed for some reasons. Anyway, I’ve been living my life on paradise island for a little while now. All went pretty well…

Just only a month and a few weeks, I’ve learned a lot more about Koh Phangan. No! I didn’t go to every weekly party on the island. But I talked more to people and being more active. I know a lot more spots on the island now. I even went to the highest spot of Koh Phangan. Not much to brag about it but I did it, okay?

Oh right, about Mister Sunshine. I had a lot of heart ache and it was not his fault nor mine. We are not good friends, do I wanna be more of course. But it seem like things wouldn’t work out from one side. So we are pretty good friends as we usually are. And now he’s going back to where he’s from. I hope when tide return next year, we will meet somewhere on the earth.

Well that’s pretty much all for now

Two days in Bangkok that I dont really enjoyed

I didn’t have time for relax or party with friends but I do had a few hours outside seeing people in busy Bangkok
