Posts Tagged ‘Travel’

It took me about 9 months to get my life running smoothly again. It is tough to move — and even tougher to grow roots again, meet friends, check the places you used to hang around before.

Except this time, it doesn’t seem to be too unfamiliar.

We have all our places in this world — some more defined than others. Mine is an inherent feeling that as much as I want to be part of the fabric of society here, I will always be the odd one out.

Ever wonder why as much as you’d like to blend in, you seem to stuck out like a sore thumb? Yah — I look Asian, Oriental. I wear brighter colors, expose too much skin (the Vietnamese ladies always like to cover up in the hot sun while I don’t mind), have my hair dyed a brownish red color, wear too many dangling earrings.

The locals seem to know.  I’m not your average city goer — never was and never will.

All of a sudden you hope you were just born mediocre or even just your average normal Asian girl.
