Slow pace of life

Right now, I am in Bellevue - Seattle, a small room in the basement of landlord's house. I do really enjoy the scene - much less outdoor advertising than in Bangkok. Ironically, i fall in love with the city subconciously. I feel calm and harmony. I haven't exprienced the real downtown scene yet but i will do it today. I visited Mt. Rainier, a lovely place for hiking and driving. See more of pics at my Flickr.

Via Korea

I am going to start my life as a graduate student at VCU Adcenter real soon. Now, I am in Incheon International Airport in Korea. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the better air ticket so i had to transit here and wait for 6 hours to catch the flight to Seattle.

Yea, 6 hours sounds boring. It's not really. I walked around the airport, slept on a sofa, visited duty free shops, browsed an internet, and read a book.

I sprayed CK One Summer perfume on my right wrist and Giorgio Armani for Red perfume on my left wrist. My body odor is getting better or worse haha... Well, i will do it again when the smell is gone. See you again in Seattle, my next stop.

Service resumes

I had gone for a week and i missed blogging. I have been so busy and got a fever for a few days from vaccine injections. Packing things is still in progress, buying things is on the way and there are so many things to do right now for the changes in my life, yea i am going to the US. next week.

There are 2 things that made me happy and cheerful.

1. Our Bangkok Planners Meeting is going good. Last Thursday, we got about 12 persons joining our meeting. We had fun talking about many topics. I am so sad that the next meeting will be my last time but I wish them the best. They are so lovely group of people with good intentions, wits, and warm hearts. Of course, we will keep in touch.
2. I created Adcenter'09 group in Facebook on May 2007. The group is pretty amazing. We chat, poke, meet, write, and read each other. We also form a good friendship before the school started as one of my fellow Adcenters, Brittany, stated here. I truly believe that we will blast the next 2 years together.

Ask Sir Monty

This is funny from Very Successful Brand Manager. Ask Sir Monty Montague section,

“Dear Sir Monty,

I face the horns of a dilemma. I have recently met two women – a minor but wealthy princess from good breeding and a stunning supermodel. No problem there. However in polite company the princess could be described as having a “nice personality.” While the supermodel has all the beauty of a porcelain doll but is equally vacuous. Therein lies my problem, Sir Monty – ugly princess or dumb supermodel?

Dear reader

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Take the hand of the one who is worth more and save the second for the bush, if you understand what I mean.
