When Thailand Was Home

When Bangkok Was Home


There are times that you don’t just travel and drop by aΒ place but actually move and live there for a season in your life. Well, that was true for me.

For three years I lived in Thailand. It was a season of change but it was also a season of knowing God more.Β I lived in the Muang Thong Thani area, in one of those white buildings. I rented one condo or apartment unit in the building (which was really just one small room with its own toilet and bath). The photo shows the exact building where I stayed, T7.

It was my longest time to live by myself in another country, in a different culture without family or relatives. And for those who have had a similar experience, you would understand when I say that loneliness is almost a daily, tangible companion when you are in such a situation. And yet, one could survive such a personal challenge by making new friends, learning a new language and keeping one’s faith intact. How about you? What’s your story about living in another country without family or close friends nearby? If you have one, do tell πŸ™‚

  1. Wow! You’ve lived in a nice building sis! I’m sure it was a struggle living afar from your family. I experienced too much homesickness myself when I left Philippines to join my husband here in the US. It was bittersweet and it took me a while to get used to it. πŸ˜€
