Adventurous. Unafraid. Fearless. She gravitates toward unfamiliar territories. Newfangled experiences.
For two years in a row, on the Mother’s Day weekend อิหมวย set out to see the world. Last year was an eventful trip to the Land of the Raising Sun, Japan (check it out here). This year she flew southbound to Indonesia. The hidden paradise.
Indonesia is a perfect mixture of Asia and Oceania. Its size, tropical climate, and archipelagic geography, support one of the world’s highest level of biodiversity. Like many, she traveled to sight one of the world’s best natural landmarks Asia has to offer.
Climbing great heights and dust
On the edge of the steamy water falls
The mountain view and sunrise
Indonesia is multicultural. With around 300 distinct native ethnic groups, and 742 different languages and dialects, it is a very ethnically and linguistically diverse country. Encountering local culture and ways of lives put perceived realities into perspective.
Traveling makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the universe.
As the journey ends, she added one more country to the ever growing of place she has visited. Japan, China, Indonesia, the list expands.
A much needed break. Refreshed and ready to go. Welcome back.
You are reading this now because you have time. You have made the decision that there is enough time to do something unimportant, and this is it. It is a gamble that you take and I don’t blame you. Time is probably the most precious resource because unlike everything else. You can’t take it back. You can’t take control of time. You only manage time.
For most, time manages you.
Daydreaming used to be a major part of my childhood. I believe it’s where I consolidate my imagination which keeps me busy mentally. It is a safe space to let my thoughts project into a projection of my own creativity. It was an on-going, continuous, and free-roam type of thing (which I won’t specifically get into haha). I have all the time in the world. I am actually never “busy”.
I’m finally become the person I did not hope to be.
It is what it is.
The busy life of working young adults finally shows its effect. Seven days a week for her. Five days a week for me. And surely, we spent the weekends catching up on sleep and utilizing that little bit of leftover minutes to pursuit our happiness. I often caught myself scrolling through cats’ images. Somehow, seeing them and their randomness keeps me sane. Going through an endless of Facebook “feeds” has slowly becoming a second nature. Following internet celebrities faking their lives away. This habit is no way healthy. I am guilty of that.
So here I am writing away my incohesive thoughts; lacking central idea because I haven’t personally got a hold of you for a while. While it is nobody’s fault, I really do hope it gradually improves because being this far from you feel a lot further when there isn’t an active and constant conversation between us. It just work out so perfectly that your day ends as soon as I get out of work. And the next day begins.
I thought to myself. Simply, there isn’t enough time… But I’m wrong
It was more than 20 days ago since the last blog entry. It was mainly due to the fact that I’ve abandoned my little precious หมวย to focus my concentration on slaying the so called “dragon”, security plus certification by CompTIA.
Alas, it never affected her cuteness!
Throughout this intense period, she has been nothing but supportive, always has been. I don’t think anybody else would be able to stay this cute when accounting how often I have poured (เท) my baby. Every time when I feel like I’m tired and let down. Her presence that the fact that she will always be around me keeps me going, as I should.
Yesteryear. I don’t recall myself ever opening up to a person. I don’t recall myself exchanging my thoughts and ideas so freely. แต่ว่ารถตู้สายกทม-กาญ ทำให้เราเปลี่ยน she changed all that. Suddenly, I was not so alone anymore. Suddenly, I want to start something with someone. It was a weird feeling because before I get on that van I was not planning on taking care of anybody anytime soon. However, spending that little time with her instantly gets me thinking of days where I want to live happily with the comfort feelings of her presence. รูปของเราในวันพรุ่งนี้จากที่มีเราเพียงคนเดียว กลับมีเทออยู่ข้างๆ It was not me that fundamentally changed. It was the fact that I want you with me.
