Sad news, good news

“What is money if it is not spent? What is a woman if she is not spoilt?”

Music to my ears. 🙂

Anyway, today’s been a downer.

I just found out that Aussie guy’s leaving Taiwan for good, and this week is his last week. He’s transfering to Hong Kong doing regional trading, sort of a promotion so to speak.

“Congratulations,” I evenly said. “Finally, you can get out of Taiwan. You’ve never really liked it here.”

“Yeah,” he gruffly agreed. “There’s still a lot of mess I have to handle during my last week here but I can’t wait but leave this god-forsaken place.”

Taiwan’s a place wherein either you hate it or love it in the first 6 months. I sorta liked it which is why I’ve lasted over four years, while Aussie guy hated Taiwan to the inner core of his being.

Ironically, despite his extreme negatism, I’m going to miss this big man. 🙁

He’s been a crucial part of my 2007, and maybe the adage is true — you’ll always want what you can’t have.

Regardless, life goes on. Summer is coming, and who knows will drop into my life next?

Why is it that you’re still single, Raven?” Lily asked me yesterday as we sipped a glass of red wine. “I think it’s because you’re always in a position of power. You’re more Western than Eastern and guys are intimidated by you.”

I don’t know Lily,” I replied. “Maybe it’s a mixture of all those things. Regardless, am at a great point of my life right now. I’m completely single, over my ex and ridden of emotional baggage. I’m perfectly comfortable where I am and just content — with or without someone.”

“Heck, who knows?” I continued. “Love drops when you least expect it, and at this point in time, I’ve given up expecting and just determined to keep on living a great life.”

Yes, it’s great where I am right now. 🙂

It’s getting late, am off to bed now.

Hope you guys are doing great and wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    Take it easy, Rave. Trust me someone will come along so you don’t have to feel bad or anything. Out of the billions of people in the world there’s more than one person who’s right for you.

    Just relax, have fun and enjoy the ride. Just be careful though so won’t fall by the wayside. Have a great week, Rave!

    Sigh, it’s not that — just afraid this guy can be a little psycho. Who knows? 🙂 But will take it easy. This will pass as well. Thanks for leaving a note!
