But it's been 22 years since returning to Bangkok after uni in Hawaii, and we feel that's enough. We want to set up again back in our beloved Hawaii.


It's shaping up to be a big year for us.
Congrats on all of the changes! Where in Hawai'i are you planning to move? (I'm sure you mentioned this already and I have skipped past it.) We occasionally talk about the Big Island, but the truth is we also like snow, so Hawai'i will probably remain a favorite vacation spot.

Yay Tonka! I remember that he was originally considered quite sickly, but he seems to be doing very well.

Good for you! I hope to be half as adventuresome as you are someday. I'm glad you figured out a way to get back to what you love. I may start a thread on this, to counterpoint the one that's currently up about giving up things you love.

Yay! Do you mind if I ask which genre? I've got my metaphorical fingers crossed for you.

No news on my side.. Just re-discovered this thread and wanted to acknowledge the latest news.
