Is it time to panic?

I started the official countdown of my remaining days here in Thailand, 29 days to be exact.

The very moment that I received the email that my contract will not be renewed, I immediately thought of applying to other companies, preferably in European countries. I always dreamed of taking photos of landmarks that I only see in movies and books. Well, it’s not always about work. LOL!

Am I afraid being jobless, anytime soon? A bit. I told my officemate that I must get a job before my last day in Thailand. But she pointed out that I am pressuring myself too much that I won’t be able to enjoy my stay anymore. If there’s no job offer before that time, take a well-deserved break. I guess she’s right and my mother would love that idea.

Today, I received a job offer (sort-of) from a company within Asia. Am I happy with the offer? Yes. But did I confirm it already? Not yet, as I am still hoping and praying for another offer somewhere in Europe. Oh please, let it be next week before I make a decision. LOL!

For the meantime, I’ll just take it easy. Let the days overtake my professional path. I must not be in a hurry. I have to give enough time to savor the present moments. After all, I am still single.


At Day's End

Wave at twilight,
dip mud-caked feet in the creek;

walk towards the grass-thatched hut,
squat on the bamboo floor;

share the coconut wine,
fireflies waltzing around;

strum the guitar,
listen to the applause of rice grains;

say goodnight to the moon,
pink skies will arrive for the harvest.

I still believe that the world has lots to offer for me being a Process Design Engineer, if not, as a Photographer! LOL!

Everything is about timing. And sometimes, luck.

    All the best that the world could offer!
