Instead of writing about my India trip (don't hate me Smeeta!), I have decided to make an announcement instead. Two announcements goes!

1. I resigned from my position as Writer at The Malay Mail last week. My last day is on September 12.

2. I will be leaving for Spain enroute London on October 12 and will be back in Malaysia on November 19. I will be in Sevilla for 3 weeks studying Spanish and making a few detours to a few cities after that.

And no, I haven't gotten another job just yet.

Am I crazy? Possibly. But from the bottom of my heart I know that this is something I need to do right now. For the past 3 years I've been eating, breathing, sleeping work and I think it's time for me to step back and do something different. I am also confident that I will be able to get a job soon.

Why learn Spanish? Only my family and close friends know that I've studied the language before, first in Melbourne and then in KL. I also passed the first level (A1) test while studying at Help College. So this is not entirely new for me, although making my dream come true is something new. I've been wanting, aching even to go to Spain for a few years now...and it's coming true.

And yes, I'm doing this on my own...Scary and exciting all at the same time.

Anyways, so that's the deal. Wish me luck! :)

Been a silent lurker for a bit and figured, heck - might as well make my presence known now.. I've always wanted to dig up the courage and do something similar but its a tad hard when there's mortgage etc.

Looking fwd in reading more updates :)

Good luck and have fun!!

Thanks for making your presence known Mirebelle. :) Nice to know that you've been lurking around. I am gonna try and update the blog more often from now. I love reading your blog, by the way.

Hi Anu! Stumbled upon your blog by pure chance and loving the journey. I always get a rush when meeting the very few people who loves Spain and espaƱol in the same sentence. I've yet to go to Spain but I made trips to Latin American countries which is a whole new cultural experience altogether. I love your spontaneity. Reminds me of myself when I woke up one day and said That's it! I'm going to Latin America!

You'll be seeing more of me here! ;)

Hi Darsh,

Am glad that you made it here. As you said, there are very few people who love Spain and am glad to know those who do and are spontaneous too. I checked out your blog and boy do I love it!

FYI I love tofu and hate cats too...:)
