Good morning Tfs…

I havn’t been logging in on TF for sometimes but I keep checking the site every now and then, but only 5 to 10 mins each time, so I hardly log in. I have been living in NZ for 9 months now and I think I’m doing ok. No home sick but when I see ppl posted food pictures it make me hungry and want to go back ..hehe.. I like many things in this country, its nature and its ppl are very impressive. Working culture & environment is quite different from what I used to in my home but I’m doing ok here. I arrived nz with my 9 months visitor visa and after 4 months I applied work visa. I got my work visa in late April and I got a job in mid June. I see many kiwi women work like men, I saw a woman drives a big truck and I thought to myself that if they can do hard work and I can… too. I went to recruitment agency with my Thai friends on second week of last June and after interviewed I got a job. It was not because I’m better than my friends but I think I’m chosen because they like my attitude. I told the interviewer that as I have no work experience here, I’m ready to take any job to work my way up. Then they gave me a second test paper which I failed half of my test but the agency called and gave me a paper of the corrected answer to rectify those wrong answers on my second test. I’m grateful that they given me opportunity and I’m not fail them coz I’m working as much as I can, which sometimes 60 hrs per week. Even my supervisor at work place kind of like me coz I’m quiet and do what I’m told. I almost give up on my first day at work coz it was not only too hard but also numerary and acurary too. Couple weeks past my husband asked me if I still wanted to work coz he hears me keep moaning of sore body everyday, life up & stack up boxes (6.5 kg each box weight) but I told him that I’m ok. I am a smallest person at the factory and I do what others do, we all work together as a team or family. They think I’m 25 yrs or younger and when they know my real age, they are acting in disbelieve. Some keep asking what eye cream I’m using coz she wants to get rid of her wrinkle eyes, I tell her the truth that I use only warm water wash my face in the morning and that’s it, and no night or day cream at all. Some ask me what size of my bra and they feel my breast too. I’m bullied by some coz I guess they may thought that I’m a bad person, having an affair at work but it’s nothing proofed as I’m having an affair. There is a guy, he seems interested in me but what he can do is only saying but no action have been done…and later on when they learned that is not my fault, that guy likes me, since I have done nothing at all. then they are nice to me but still keep an eyes on me & him on coffee break and lunch times, especially when the guy sits next to me.

He seems like a nice guy, tall, blond & slim and he looks like my idol 10 years ago, the boy band called “boy zone“, (Ronan Keating). I like to look at him coz he remind me of my idol, I’m not proud of my behavior that when I see a good looking guy on the way I can’t take my eyes of him but this isn’t something new to me, its my nature since I were born. First I talked with Ronan when I worked there a couple weeks he started make a conversation by asking me what’s my star sign while he’s holding a newspaper on astrology page and then he asked if I have a friend living here to introduce him, I said most of my friends are living in Thailand. He seemed interested on what I said and asked about me & my husband I told him that we have different lifestyle and we are trying to balance our live together., then he offers to take care of me and offer me to give me drive home but I never take…. And later on he asked about my visa status and he said once I got resident visa, then divorce my husband, he’ll wait until then. I thought that he was joking so I said, are you going to wait that long? And he said yes… and one thing to another our conversation is far more than friends. He gave me a piece of paper and I won’t tell you what he wrote. He likes nudging me while I was working, sometimes nudge on my upper shoulder but mostly around my elbow area, which my work mate told me that he must be very crazy about me, even some girls are showing their interested in him but he has his condition as someone about his age (he‘s older than me 1 yr) and etc…. One day I met him at factory‘s corridor I remember he said to me that “when I come to work and thinking of meet you here, it makes me want to come to work everyday†Wow! I feel like…One day he sits next to me and I couldn’t help to asked him “how come you are not dating?†he said he does dating but nothing serious coz he waits for someone special. And when I asked what qualification in a woman are you looking for?. He said someone like me, everything just like me aka copycat. And that what he asking for . I can’t and I don’t introduce my friends to him coz he has his conditions and even if I introduce my friend to him and if it didn’t work out both he & my friend would hate me in the end of the day hehehe. So, it is going to be like this until he found his someone special… I don’t mind ppl keep an eyes on both of us coz I getting used to of it. I wish him find someone special soon coz I wanted to see him a happy man and hearing he says lonely to me… is as if I gave him hope. I don’t know what future bring and at this moment I have never thought of divorcing my husband, coz I loved him and still want to take care of him and make him happy no matter what. Sometimes I just feel like god I just live with my husband for short period….

Talking about work place I love my work and I get used to of hard working coz there isn’t me who work hard but all of us too. When I was in Thailand most of my friends call me “hard core†but once I’m here I’m just too naïve hehehe…in my work place they are quite hard core than I expect and my husband said you woman talk even worse than men… I asked my husband one day that “ am I pretty?†coz some of my work mates said so coz normally I don’t hear this word from same sex and the pretty word is inapplicable to me hahaha, coz since I were remember the first word I heard from my family is ugly and never shared my ugliness to any of my family member, and when I grow up in mid 20’s or early 30’s my bro kept told me that “you’d never experience what a guy’s thing taste like†which wasn’t bother me at all and the way that he said I’m remind him of homoerectus isn’t affected me at all, until I accidentally saw homoerectus on internet not long ago, at first react I saw it, I touch my cheek and asking myself ‘am I look that ugly?â€. I told my husband that when women say I’m pretty it makes me feel funny. He then asks me to score 1 to 10 of how I think of my look. I told him that I score myself 5, he said I gave myself lower than he thinks…Hahaha I am pretty! Ho ho ho… I got to go back to my guitar & my key board…I have lots of toys at the moment…I wish everyone have a happy sunshine day! :D

Hahaha...of course you are pretty, soda! It's a very interesting blog from my favorite blog on tf because my wife is going through the same thing. She's amazed at what women do here in terms of working as equals with men.

The part about women having dirty mouths, we have that too and I hate it. It's so unnactractice and not feminine.

Anyway, su su with your work! Keep up the good stuff and I hope to read more from you. You're one of three tf blogs that I subscribe to, and I was so happy to get an email saying you posted a blog.

This is the longest message I've ever written on a phone. Ever.

Great blog - I think that "pretty" translate to "น่ารัก" and I looked at Your profile, You are (as You also imply in the blog) not a big woman, I have never been to NZ but my impression is that peoples there are as big as in Europe, so You would be small and "pretty" there :)

As long as You don't hide anything from Your husband (and he is not jealoux ofcause) You should enjoy the fact that "Ronan" is showing an interest, as You at least know it will never be anything else... Ofcause You have to also tell "Ronan" that his loneliness is really not Your problem, and I can easily relate to Your wish that he find someone special to let his heart towards...

You sure sound like a woman who don't just give up and many thumbs up to that, I will be looking forward to read more from Your hand :)

Soda, you know that I have been a huge fan of your blog for a long time and, yet again, you do not disappoint. Your honesty and ability to just say what's in your head is such a rare quality.

You'll do fine in whatever decisions you make. :-)

Soda - be careful around Rohan; his actions are a little unusual and would not be acceptable in a lot of work places. Not saying he is a "nutter" but I would do nothing to enourage him.

John

his actions would only be "not acceptable" if Soda was finding them troubling or offensive ... however she would appear to enjoy the attention and seems to be encouraging the guy ... NOT a good idea in my opinion !!
