Unemployed. On sabbatical. Between jobs. Taking a break. Call it what you like, but I call it, "Extended, unpaid vacation in a tropical country."

I've got a few months off between jobs and have decided to lay low, take advantage of having a comfortable house of my own, and use the bulk of the time to work on projects, rest, and explore Malaysia a bit more. When you live in a foreign country (or anywhere, really) there's so much you don't see or do because you always think you'll do it later. You get busy living life: work, social gatherings, sleep, work, clean, shop, sleep, and so on. Suddenly a year or five has gone by and you still haven't done it. My last year was a whirlwind of activity (see previous sentence)--a fabulous year--but while I did so much, I also did so little! I decided to use my time to change that. At least a little.

I've compiled some nicely captioned photos to tell you what I've been up to. Lots of fun with Toastmasters, markets, food, friends, and the haze.

I agree completely, we let the rush of daily life stop of us from doing things that we wish. Glad you get that time off to slow the peace and enjoy :)

Will do
I'm working on getting caught up, so probably going to skip a few things. Only 5 months behind now!
