Changes… Part 3

Part 3

Moving back to Asia/Indonesia felt like a good reset. It is a different world living in Jakarta. The people, the lifestyle and the place are so incredibly diverse and very far from Toronto and Canada…

How would this play out, the different culture, different life, different job and being all alone?  I was not sure how it would all pan out in the long run. Thank goodness for social media, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Facebook and Instagram. While I am usually not a fan of social media, it sure helped me shrink the distance between my friends and family.

The job opportunity came about from my friends in Jakarta who own MD Pictures. They were going to go public with the company and had to fill a few positions. While having lunch in Toronto on their visit for a film shoot, we got talking, that is where the opportunity arose out of the blue. 

My goal was always to live in Bali… After all, it was the destination of choice for the kids and me. Now it would only be a short flight away and not the usual 24 hours from Toronto. In my mind, most retirees want to live in Florida, Costa Rica or wherever their hearts desire.

This way I felt I would be a step ahead of where I eventually wanted to be. The thought process for me was simple, do something different in a different place.

After being in the same business, dealing with the same problems and the same customer. I was looking forward to what I thought and truly believed to be a much-needed change.

It wasn’t because I didn’t like the people or the industry. I was tired of it and after the closing of our business, I gave this so much thought. I came to the conclusion that this was done, it was a bit boring, monotonous and I needed more. I didn’t know what I needed until the opportunity came up.

Most people may have simply let this slide, but one the thought entered my head… The thought of the opportunity didn’t seem to want to leave. Also, there was one other large factor…

I didn’t want to overthink this…

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
