It's very ironic thinking back, we were discussing how we could go abroad and have jobs in countries that offers better opportunities. I was the first to avail a passport and now I'm the one left behind. Almost all my friends have gone overseas and it makes me so sad. I have a friend in Hongkong and now she's in Australia, the other one is in Beijing, China, I also have my friend in Singapore and the others tried their luck in Dubai, five of them are in there and I'm left here.OMG.It feels so sad really, I pity myself sometimes.

hi nayakoni! i only have one friend abroad, in Korea, but it feels like almost all my friends are abroad. most of my friends are busy with their own lives and even if we are both living in the same town, we rarely see each others and we seldom talk with each others. most of them are busy with work because they have their own families that they have to support. my friend in Korea is still single but he chose to go there to earn more money and help his parents and brothers. me and my friends even seldom send each others text messages. a lot of them are working in different provinces and even though they are single, its ambitions that's driving them to work and their parents and siblings. and i feel lonely too and i feel bad a lot of times. but i just try to understand them. friends are supposed to understand each other anyways. and i just let fate decide on when me and my friends will see each others again.

Why be so sad about that? Be happy for your friends and cheer for them. You are good enough to have an opportunity to go abroad if you keep on trying.

thanks yanny, I'm sad coz I am left all alone in here with my buddies scattered around the globe, I am happy for them of course, it's just that I miss the old days, I have to make new friends though and I'm pretty sure they have new friends also. Yah, I am just waiting for the right opportunity for me. I am happy with my job here but I really want to experience how it is to work abroad and all I have to do for now is wait...and i think pretty good at that..lol...tc
