‘What are you reading?’

This was his first question. I was reading history book in Thai.

He was a sky-train staff, standing at platform all the day.

Later during no train coming, he gave me a question how-to say-in Japanese, everytime I was waiting train.

‘Hello’ ‘Thank you’ ‘Step back please’ ‘Please wait’ …

He always had a small note book in his palm, which he wrote down what he learned on.

Next time I met him, he could say the word he learned last time.

He was proud of himself, looked happy to be there.

I admired him.


One day I found he was not standing there anymore.

I cross fingers and believe he enjoys his new life.
