|First trip to Bhutan 16-21 Aug 2012|
It's exactly a year after last night in Paro, Bhutan, where we gathered and sang 'Tharingsa' near the hotel's staff's cafeteria. Wow!!! It felt just like yesterday. Can you believe it??? A year just passes by like that.
After coming back from Bhutan and Nepal trip, I needed some time to re-adjust my life. I was still amazed on how simple life in Bhutan, how friendly my Bhutanese friends, and how beautiful the culture was preserved. I am glad that I still keep in touch with our tour guide and drivers through Facebook even until now.
It was just few days ago, one of the drivers told me that he missed our group because he never met a group like us, who loved to sing all the time in the bus. Hehe.. If you don't know what he meant, you can click here to see us singing together :)
I still remembered almost 3 weeks after coming back to Singapore, that night, I was sitting in front of my computer. I was finally back to the fact that I was in Singapore and no more in Bhutan or Nepal. I was back to the life in city and no more staying between mountains and river. I was back to metropolitan city where most of people here was looking for material wealth by working very hard, enjoying their life by shopping branded stuffs, eating at restaurants, and traveling abroad few times a year, living in mostly high rise building, etc.
Between that time and now, in just a year, many things have happened in my life, related to Bhutan. I became knowing many Bhutanese, mainly through blog and Facebook. I even met one of them on Kolkata trip during Chinese New Year and Bhutanese Losar this year, which led me to know more Bhutanese students who were studying there. Some of my friends said I must be born in Bhutan in my previous life, that's why I had so deep feeling with the country and the Bhutanese people there hehe... Who knows? :D
Through this blog too, I even had more Bhutanese followers than from other countries. Hehe.. Thank you for following my blog guys! I really appreciate it! Hope to see you in real life soon :)
