Another Nice Party
The big surprise of the evening was Jee's daughter "dropping in" from London. I knew about it, but it was a big surprise for Jee. Her daughter has been living in England for two years now, and she's doing very well for herself. She's a Thai lawyer, and after a couple of years scuffling around with unskilled jobs she has finally landed a job with a big international law firm. She made the trip to celebrate getting her permanent resident card in the U.K., which is like a permanent VISA, sure, good to see you, welcome back! She expects to have a U.K. passport in another few years. They make it easy over there, evidently.
These are nice women, and it was great to see them so happy.
