for this month.. hehehe.. I'm getting lazy. Actually I was so fully packed with work and personal stuffs that my health took a toll on me. (more on that later)
Its weird and sad but I'm back to money chasing days again that I hated so much. This time I have not much choice as I can't stay in Thailand for longterm and I need to save up more money for more expenses that came up.
The first 2 weeks of Nov I was packed with work. I only had 4 rest days from my shift but instead of resting, I went to teach part time photography for my master's workshop to earn some extra cash. I worked until the last day before I left on 10 Nov morn for Thailand.
Girl girl again so happy to see me. This trip is hectic as we are planning to go to Keng Tung for 4 days out of the 9 days leave I took. The weather was changing from hot to cold and the sudden changes in temperature means you can catch a flu easily. Which I did on the third day in Thailand. We were also busy celebrating Loy Krathong. Worst still our Cindy (doggie) went missing on that night. I spent the next day on bike to search for her and no news. We need to hit the road to KengTung so we left that job to our neighbour Ah Ma and our maid.
Another stressful journey as the road is long and this time is not for vacation but a visit to see my wife's grandpa who is seriously ill and senile. We first checked him out and he was in a serious condition. My wife had to take care of him by trying to talk some sense to him (he can't even remember us) and its a pain to see a love one in such a state. That means I have to look after my little monster.. hahaha... I have to admit I enjoy it but very very tiring trying to chase her here and there when you are unwell. She speaks to me in Thai but I always reply her in Chinese. (She understood what I say though) On the fourth day, just before we left, his grandpa miraculously woke up and remembers everything. We spoke a bit and left. (I need to go as my flight was tomorrow). Back to Thailand and Cindy was found! Yeah... but just the night before my flight, I was hit by stomach flu. Wife was so worried that she wanted me to stay for a few more days. But got work to catch up leh.... need the money for my family leh...
Took the flight back and worked for 2 days before finally collasping for 2 day MC....
No one to blame but myself. But this whole incident left me thinking.. 3 or 4 years ago when I was a single, I won't be that worried about my job or even how much I earn for that month..
