1 more day to go

1 more day to go, my Singapore boss came to Penang for our monthly operation meeting and at the same time organized a farewell lunch for me today. Yesterday hubby and I invited him for dinner and together with my CEO in Singapore they gave me a little present, a Tissot watch. Wow, I don’t expect such a pricy gift. I returned the gesture by writing personalized thank you card for both of them.

As the day approached, I realized I’ve accumulated 12 long years of emotional baggage with me, don’t get me wrong, this baggage is a wonderful baggage fill with so much fond memories. At lunch today I shed tears as the bosses proposed toss and wish me well, my lady boss shed tears too when it was my turn to say something in return, I can see some female colleagues holding back their tears… I don’t expect this farewell lunch to be so touchy… Not just that, colleagues about 15 of them took turns to say a word or two about their thoughts on me, I’m deeply touched. I’m going to miss them.

Well, they still have to bear with me for another day, tomorrow will be my last official day but I will be coming back 3 weeks later to assist them on a customer’s audit. Next Monday will be the start of a new beginning in my working life, I wonder what’s in store for me. I keep on reminding myself to drive to the new place to work next Monday, after all, for the past 12 years and 5 months I’ve been driving to the same place to work, I need some time to reprogram my brain…

To all my colleagues, a big thank you.. to my bosses, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, your care and guidance have made me into the woman I’m today.

My bosses...
