Announcement: Sudden departure.

Every single day, I dread the day that I would have to leave Korea... the day that I will eventually leave HER behind. D-day was originally set to be 24th of March 2006.

Unbeknownst to me, my boss had other plans. Not knowing what to expect, I called my boss on Tuesday ~ two days after returning from Bangkok, when I got the email that simply said, "Call me. It's urgent." It's ironclad now.

I leave Korea for Malaysia, on the 13th March 2006. I travel to the new job-site the very next day.

Welcome to the life of a field engineer.

My next project will be out in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia for the next 6 to 8 months as a lead engineer for the installation of 2 turbines.

Hopefully I will be updating the blog, and my readers interested in Korean issues will still read on about my Malaysian adventures. Wish me well, and I will try to update once I settle in to the place. Thanks for all the support so far!

Please understand that I'll have to move you from "Korean Blogs" to "Asian Blogs", on my site. But rejoice in that you'll have much less competition! Have fun back in your homeland, and now that you've leaving Korean don't forget to shred it up on the national anthem.

That's unfortunate, but that's life eh? I'm sure you've hooked your readers with your photos and the way you find fun in the tiny things. I'll keep coming back. Like Max said your link will just be changing positions.
