Mini Reunion

October 12, 2014

Long hours of mini reunion last weekend with my friends from college. The group of us, however, isn't complete because most other guys are away from the country, either for work or travel. It was great to finally meet everyone again. We spent a lot of time at our rented house on the week of assignment deadlines & presentations. We also hung out after classes. So much silly memories back then..

4 years later, here we are, making time for each others to catch up, and there's no end of topics. After lost contact for about 3 years, I finally meet Rossy again and we got to hear about experiences and little stories about studying abroad in New Zealand. We laughed so much to her stories. She also described NZ as a very laid back country, where everyone takes quality of life so seriously.

It really got me thinking until today.. And I spoke to a Chinese masseur this afternoon and we agreed to the same points about the society. I was surprised to find someone who talked like her. I was told about how sad and desperate the people in her country is. It's a culture of corruption.

I think this fast paced society is making everyone sick yet there's nothing we can do about it. We can't just quit our job and enjoy life because we need income to survive. But I believe it can be fixed if people can try to slow down life. Just can't imagine the world in the next 5 to 10 years.
