My last beach vacation ...

I am currently working from home, having being in a conference call for nearly 4 hours already. I know, I know, you hear this every weekend.

You can probably see for yourselves that I'm not kidding when I say I don't have a social life. Or much of a life. And why I am changing jobs.

Anyways, I was bored out of my brains, and was digging up photos from the ol' Moz Monster archive when I came across this stunning one.

I was vacationing in Koh Samet, a small marine national park island off the coast of Thailand. I went for a long break with K Anukit and Ashish last year while I was still working in Bangkok.

I was walking on Wang Luang, one of the beaches in Koh Samet when I saw this orange colored bottle. I walked towards the bottle with the intention of picking it up to dispose it properly, when I realised the bottle wasn't orange - it was a plain plastic bottle, but it's all orange because there are all these shells growing on it.

It struck me that even on a barren place - such as a plastic bottle - where we don't normally expect life to exist, much less to thrive - shells can grow and thrive. Such is the hardiness of life that where there's a will - there will be a way. =)

Whoever made us all living things did a very good job. Thumbs up to You.
