Gulping down orange juice while nibbling the last bunch of grapes I have, I finally managed to sit down peacefully in front of my laptop to write this last blog before I leave Singapore for China tomorrow.
WordPress and Blogspot are banned in China (why am I not surprise?) and I very much doubt I could get my way around it. Argghhhhhhh…
I guess I just have to make do with my days in remote china as a couch potato as I couldn’t post nor read anything from either one of the domains. Sigh. I should have listened to Danny when he asked me to get my own space then. Damnit.
You know what? I am so lazy to get my ass out of Singapore and drag myself to the airport tomorrow. Having spent the last 6 weeks not working (but still get my paycheque in full), you can imagine what kind of lifestyle I have adapted. 😛
Hmm…come to think of it, which company on earth pays you full wages when all you need to do is to show your face in the shipyard for 2 days? Muahahahaaa…
Okay, that was not entirely the truth.
There was no assignment for me after my CNY break. Can’t really blame me for boasting, can you? 😆
Some of you might be wondering where TAHE is. It’s located next to the longest Desert Expressway in Xinjiang, north-west China. It’s still freaking cold up there though not as bad as my previous trip where the temperature never rose above 0 degC. It’s a lovely place really, minus all the oil and gas exploration that is going on over there. What a shame that such a national heritage is marred by all the exhaust coughed out by the machineries, not to mention the brightly-lit flares which one can spot from afar.
It’s a two days trip just to get there and some parts of the road is darn perilous, especially after dusk. I guess after the near death incident I had boarding the chinese domestic airliners, I just shudder at the thought of putting myself into those pathetic, crammed seats.
But if GOD wants me back, what can I say? Then let it be a fast and painless ordeal, I pray. Otherwise, I’d be more than happy to keep bitching about life until my time is due. 😆
Okay folks, that’s all for now. If you don’t see anything here for the next few weeks, you know what happened. I might be far away in some deserted place, but my thoughts and prayers are always near.
With all my love, MT.
