A Hiatus

This will be my last post for a while.

I had originally intended this blog to document my life's amusing stories. Somewhere along the way, it became a story of hope, of a new life 8000 miles from the place I called "home". Where I could be who I wanted to be.

The story has soured. Hope became tragedy. The anecdotes had turned into raw bleeding word-wounds. I cannot write my story down anymore. It reminds me of the darkest hour I've ever had to face. I don't want to face it anymore. It is too painful.

Oh, the price of wisdom.

I have the opportunity for a new start. A new job, offered to me by an old friend. A new place to live sometime in 2007. A new life. All I want is peace, quiet and a life to call my own. I'm not sure if I am comfortable writing about my new life, so close to the shadow of my old one. Only time will tell.

If you see me in Singapore, wave and smile. You know who I am. I don't know who you are. Email me at khaycelim-at-gmail-dot-com if you prefer.

Have a happy 2007. I hope it is better than 2006.

You don't know me, and I don't know you, but I've been reading your blog for some time. I'm sorry about your wife, and I'm glad you've decided to end that part of your life with grace and maturity (however she might behave towards you).

Congratulations on passing your bar exam - it must have been the same one my brother sat for. Achievements may seem empty right now, as I'm guessing that you are a bit depressed; but it's certainly something you should be proud of.

Here's looking forward to 2007 and a fresh start. Where will your new job take you, if I may ask?

All the best
AF

Hey Mr Wang,

Thanks. I still have a bag of tea for you from Beijing. Will figure out a time to drop it off somehow.

Hey AF,

The new job is interesting. I don't want to compromise my employer, but suffice to say, I'm working in-house at a multinational company. I'll be in Singapore at first, slowly expanding this to a regional role once I start getting the hang of things.
