Yes, I’m on a roll. I want to make the best use of however little time I have left in cyberspace before returning the modem later. Besides, we’ll be paying for the month of June as well. Didn’t know we had to give a 1 month notice. Darn.
Anyway, realized I’ve never taken any photos with my friends here. So I made sure I brought the camera while making the rounds and bidding final goodbyes.
Salim & Rose from Malaysia used to be the owners/chef of the restaurant we frequented. After it closed down, we remained as friends.
Lissette, my classmate from Ecuador. This capable young lady has started a business of making and selling jewellery from her hometown with her sister.
Also my classmates, Tze Hua and Ramphai come from Taiwan and Thailand. All of us can speak English but we’re always trying to converse in German which probably sounds painful to the ears of the locals.
With the ah laos…
With the most important man in Mr. Tan’s life here and his family. Although they only came a few months ago, but we get along quite well.
Lilia from Philippines. She’s been here for more than twenty years, is the walking Wikipedia of Switzerland, and also a very nice person to talk to.
Raquel from Brasil. She was pregnant with twins but one of them couldn’t make it. Really sad, but she’s a blissful mother now to newborn Cedric.
From left to right: Angie, Eng Cheng, moi, Taiwanese lady boss of the restaurant Ya Ke, Errna, Minh and Ying Cong, my good friend from Malaysia who introduced me to all of the rest (who are mostly Malaysians), and also organized this farewell party for us
The guys. From left to right: Bobbi, David, Andreas, Mr. Tan, Daniel
Taiwanese boss and wife of the restaurant - the most hospitable restaurants owners we’ve ever met. I’ve patronized them since I first came and when they had their small takeaway opposite my school. That has closed down and they’ve just newly opened this restaurant.
Radiah, one of the very few Singaporeans I know (and would like to know), who actually lives in the next town in our ulu ulu area.
The ah laos again…
In one of the few restaurants, Kormasutra in our ulu ulu area
