I am going to be a Global Citizen

No I am not going to go all moral and ethical shit on you.

Not that kind of Global Citizen.


This is what's going to happen.

I am moving out this month. Yeah~~~!!! Thank god! Finally! I thought I was going to rot.

Don't get my wrong, I love where I'm staying, and to be able to have the whole condo to myself is a luxury, really. It's fantastic. Just that I have always seen myself as a person of non settlement, especially not in the same country.

I was in Melaka for 17 years, and god that was too much! Then I was in college, in England for uni, in KL, and I started working, and then travelling. Come to think of it, I have actually stayed in Klang Valley for 4 years! Moving around SS2, to Kelana Jaya and then to Puchong - but never in the same place.

I was about to renew my yearly contract with my landlord last month because July was the month I moved in last year. And then something hit me. Why rent a place in Malaysia when you are going to be travelling everywhere else BUT Malaysia!

After sorting out my time table, I realised I am only going to be in Klang Valley for 2.5 months for the rest of the year! So, again with the over-night thinking, I decided! I am going to move out! And be homeless for the rest of the year!

Yay!

I am in China now, so after this I will head back to Malaysia, and by July, my mom's going to go through her second operation so I have to be there for her in Melaka till she recovers. By then, it would have been August when I will be flying to Australia for a month long till mid September; in December, I am heading over to Japan to finish off the rest of the country, only to return in 2009. As for the 2.5 months in between?

Haha, guess what?! I. am. MOVING TO THAILAND!!!

Yes! I will be migrating to Bangkok (temporary)! Will be renting an apartment there and maybe pick up Thai language! Woohoo!!!

I can't believe I am going to be a global ciziten in 10 days! Life is full of unexpectancies.

    ReplyDelete
  23. yeah, how do u do it? u aren't really working, u are a student right? how do u travel so many places? go wherever you want, whenever you want? where do you get both the time and money?

    I envy u so much for having such a carefree life. Your life is what I have always wished for myself!

    Your kind of life is what one would term a successful one -- because you are in control and you have a say in how u live it.

    Share with us this success story, nicole. Share with us how u do it?

  24. your choice your judgement. as you pop yourself into the world of thai rich and the poor, the vast different and thekindness of people and friendship in Thai.
    As foreigner in any counter, you never feel lonely, full of excitement. But always remember, every step, every drink, every encounter, they are people envy, people jealous and they are traps. Just avoid when your sixth sense...
    We don't want to miss a nice country girl like u ,ok..

  25. All the best to you. Be alert of your surrounding. My friend almost got kidnapped in Bangkok while vacationing there by herself. She was too friendly, got into trouble, some gangster thing.

  28. Hi Nicole

    Glad 2 know you r going to BKK. Nice place with lots of friendly people. In case you don't know, BKK never sleeps ! There's life everywhere at any time of the day.

    Where r u staying. If u like, I recommend that you stay in Pratunam or Sukhumit area; not Chinatown though.

    Can I drop by to see you when I'm in BKK.
