Late Holiday Greetings

Season Greetings! (little late) Last a couple days, I halted all my work and managing all my contacts and sent out Christmas greetings. It may be just a ritual.Some people hate season greetings. I am one of those who don’t really follow the custom. But as I go through my e-mails, and letters, the memory of that particular person comes and goes. Sometime, we did something crazy, fun or painful. But I realized that chain of these encounters made me who I am. I was just a guy who was just dreaming. Now I am stepping forward. Thank you for all of you who support me this year and the […]

Now I see more white-color foreign workers resides in my hometown.
