I hate goodbyes.

Last week, the company decided not to renew my contract. It means that I must finish everything before May 19. Upon reading the email, I had mixed feelings. I mean, I can now freely apply to other company but at the same time I feel sad thinking I’ll be leaving my officemates. I am fond of them. Yes, they are native Thais and they have been very helpful, friendly and accommodating, not only to me but as well as to the other expats. Well, that’s the price I must pay of being an expat – bound by well-defined contracts.

I will be making a separate entry about some of my memories and experiences here.

Talking about goodbye, my friend, my best photography buddy left Thailand already for another job opportunity. I wish him the best and hope that he will never cease to keep on clicking, oh the power of clicking!




the lens panics
bees demand for privacy
sunflowers beam shyly


grasses pave way
the wind whispers
to a silent stream


sparkles in the sky
a vast mirror
rainbow-like spectra


a wicked sound
freezes time


Got to make this one short. I have to prepare my resume and search for some job openings. LOL!

  3. as Jose Mari Chan says:

    we're on the road
    we move from place to place,
    and oftentimes when i'm
    about to call it HOME,
    we had to move along...
    life is a constant change...

    hayy.. buhay nga naman, ano? minsan nakakatakot sumabak sa isang bagong bagay dahil nakasanayan mo na ang mga dati. pero kailangan eh. walang ibang choice.
