Hating Dubai

Last Saturday I attended the despedida party of Laila and Grace, two of my closest friends at the office. Actually I was supposed to attend Pheng and Rhea’s Despedida party at samal on the same day but I opted to join the latter. All of them except rhea resigned from work because they will try their luck overseas..specifically at Dubai. I can no longer keep track of how many of my friends went to work at Dubai and those who plan to. That’s why I’m beginning to hate the place coz it’s taking my friends away from me L I feel really sad not to be able to spend time with my friends anymore but well there’s nothing I can do but accept their decisions and cope. I also talked to another friend who’ll be leaving for Australia this year and he asked me if I have plans to work abroad. I replied, Travel yes…but work no. I just can’t imagine myself working and living in another country with a different culture and lifestyle. I imagine how difficult the adjustment might be to work with foreigners..the language , culture gap and all. I am very much attached to my family and chose not to be away from them again. Yes I might be missing out some opportunites out there, to see new places and earn more and etc. but spending quality time with my family far outweighs those.
I wish to be reunited with those friends in Dubai and hope Dubai is taking good care of them but for now…I’m hating the place

Cat Burglar

Last night when I was about to sleep, I heard some funny noises outside my window which is just beside my bed and so I peered into the blinds and guess who I saw...a cat burglar!

well not exactly burglar coz it's our pet cat ,Orange, but he wasn't supposed to be there. I tried to poke and push him away but he wouldn't budge. I tried flashing the flashlight directly on his eyes but nothing happened except that his eyes turned green.

I was tempted to throw water at him but I can't do that without getting my bed wet and so I let him be and we slept side by side...well sort of. And today I'm having a sneezing fit :-(
