In a jungle of plants, smell of coffee and scent of fruit, you will be sitting on a comfy chair in front of a slick designed-in-California computer. After the usual morning chat, you will work your a** off to provide the best work you have ever done like if your life depends on it (and it actually does, doesn't it?). This, 5 days a week, 8 hours a day for a modest pay check at the end of the month, which will allow you to go enjoy the CNY break in Pattaya.

You will work for a flying-hospital, a candy maker, an international apothecary,  wine makers from the other side of the world, an alchemist of the 21st century - from China and other countries alike.
