corporate social responsibility

Its becoming part and parcel of everyday life.  CSR.  Corporate Social responsibility.  On this trip, we are doing our bit as well.
Before we went on our CSR portion of this trip, we of course had been treated like VIP's, to the extent of having a choir singing goodbye to us when we left one resort for the next to having lunch at this fabulous Tepanyaki restaurant  with the best meat, scallops and prawns. Then after that,what do they do, they take us out to a workshop where we were supposed to help the blind varnish the baskets that they had weaved.
I was still stuffed from lunch and going there to see how the other half lives, saddened me.  It was a good lesson for me. I sat on the day bed in the room looking out at this view (see pic on the right) thinking that I had alot to be grateful for and I had better stop whining.

Time to stop being an ungrateful bitch and learn to appreciate what is.


  1. Wow. That's very thought provoking. It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day stuff that happens in our lives and forget that what might seem like a problem or issue for us is a dream for someone else.

    PS - I love that last sentence, that might just be my new motto.

    1. Yep, it put alot of things into perspective for me, and go ahead and use the last sentence!!
