Only got 2 weeks left here till my stay expires on my passport. One suggestion that has been made is to venture into Singapore or Thailand, and get my stay reset. Does that work? I do wonder. It's doing my head in.
Aaagh, another long hiatus. When will it end? Let's get to the point. Work has been really tough. Nuni's started chambering. All this means time together is much reduced. Bummer.

Most of what I do is promotional CDs, which are handed out to their clients at presentations. It's nothing special really, but at least it has proved to be a pleasant diversion from previous jobs, where I only had one site or project to be responsible for. However, the work is hard. My spirits were raised considerably by my first foreign paypacket. Me and Nuni were scraping our
