Working in Cambodia

Popularity 3Viewed 649 times 2015-10-20 20:39 |System category:News

I have not thought that one day I can work abroad within such a short time .After three weeks training ,I passed the test .Then it was time for leave .On 26th September, when all the Chinese people enjoy their Mid-Autumn Festival holiday ,I took the plane to Cambodia alone .

The airplane was late for no reason , thus I arrived the Phnom Penh airport around  3:30pm(Beijing Time).Not until  I went through the Customs did I realize  that I was in  different countries. My colleague said something  to me in  Chinese ,and I thought she spoke in Szechwan Dialect ! “What !Are you kidding me ,I am from Hunan province ,how can I speak your dialect?” .Suddenly ,I felt that I could not understand any languages .She waited there for so long ,the sunshine was too strong at that time ,her skin almost burnt  even stayed in the waiting room. It did scared me ,as my skin has become tan already .

It took about 1hour from the airport to our company .The sceneries  out of the window are really ugly .Garbage ,waste water ,and the dusty road made me sick .This is the capital city ,but the environment is far less than our countryside .However ,I should get used to there rather than complain about this ,because this is my choice .

Now ,although  I still can not bear the  surroundings  ,I appreciate my perseverance so that I can meet some good friends .When I first  come to the office ,I worried so much ,everything was new to me ,and the majority of them are talking in Cantonese .I  felt misanthropic and wanted to keep away from them. After  being familiar with them ,I know that we have much in common as we are of the same age .

Helping each other makes work easier .I have never experience the benefit of cooperating with others .I used to work alone ,eat alone ……everything if I can do by myself ,I will never ask others for help .Now ,I am aware of the mis-conceptions .The longer I stay with them ,the more I feel myself .Oh ,this is the real me !Thanks to all of you ,my friends !
