Angkor – Exhibit at ACM

When you can’t be at the real place … a museum exhibit is most welcome.

There is always something to be thankful for. And living in a beautiful convenient city like this is one of them.

Selection

Meet up with 3 other ex-colleagues on the eve of a public holiday, preparing a cake to celebrate one of their birthdays, and chatting in the living room till 9.30PM – Perfectly fine and enjoyable.

Staying back for an hour to have lunch in the office to welcome new staff, watch them do initiation forfeits, and make small talk – Escapes immediately after workshop session ends.

Meeting up with a friend I have not seen in 2 years, in a foreign country, and spending an entire day together catching up along the beautiful coastline of her country – I can’t wait.

Going on a company-sponsored trip to an offshore island to spend 3 days 2 nights with a planned itinerary, large group outings and games and activities – all in the name of “bonding” – I’d take unpaid leave if I could or had to.

I’m not anti-social.

Just …. selectively social.

Be More With Less

Actually, having embarked on the start of a journey in minimising my things this year, I can really vouch for this.

Of all the things I have given or disposed of since January, not a single item has been sought after, not a single thing missed.

Instead I feel less cluttered, free to do what I’ve always been wanting to do – create more. More art, more music, more me-time.

And having less things around me has actually helped me do more of that.

And the journey continues 🙂
