The Last Lunch Treat

Because they finished compiling everything needed to finally submit our EOT, one of our managers decided to feed our 2 smart colleagues- our Pakistani Planner & Filipino QS with this delicious Jajangmyeon. Glad I was also invited hehe.

Nature's Hug

Last night I set my alarm at 6:30AM so that I can go to the sea early morning. The seashore is just 5 minutes walk from where we live. Walking by the park, the grasses & trees are still wet from the water sprinklers and the air is cold. It is now the middle of December, christmas is just 2 weeks away. The green trees and grasses, the blue calm waters of the sea, and the refreshing cool breeze are powerful medicine for the body and the spirit. Last week I suffered from physical and emotional pains, my family is far away and I have no one to hug. Life in UAE is sometimes terribly lonely. We all left our families in our home country, came here to live and work alone.

Hot and Painful

Today is a terribly troubled day at the office. There are a lot of work and the whole day I could not rotate my head. Our site nurse gave a pain reliever patch he said "Stick it on your neck." Salonpas makes you feel hot and makes you smell like menthol. But does not remove pain.

Byun's Visit

Anneong-haseyo! We were refreshed when we met our friend from south korea who came back to UAE to see us. Her name is Byun. Such a sweet lonely girl. She used to work day and night non-stop like the other koreans, but now we were glad to see that she had found her "inner peace". She said she was able to think for herself during her visit in Turkey, hehe.
