I've Resigned!

The 2nd time with the same company. But this time, i'm leaving for good. For a better opportunity. A more exciting job and better prospects in a totally new industry. I'm just glad that i still have a chance to jump onto another wagon and re-learn again. Why take the risk to embark on a totally new industry now at 29, you might ask, but i thought if not now then when? Automotive is going down the drain anyways.

I've even resorted to a demotion. No longer in a managerial position but the salary is way better. Different industries do pay differently so people who are not yet working, choose the industry u wanna be in carefully. Who cares if you're a manager but you're paid like an operator?

But as much as i want to leave the company, i really feel berat hati to leave such wonderful 'family' we've built. Is it weird to feel that way? I'll miss the laughter, especially the laughter and all the heart-to-heart talks with the aunties and uncles and friends that i've made at work. The PANTRY POLITICS and the Friday long lunches we have. As crazy as it seems, i seem to hook well with the older crowd here. Maybe coz i'm naggy (like what andrew says). I would also miss my boss. A wonderful and quiet man who's been a mentor to me.
Here's saying adios to my wonderful colleagues. My last day is on 28th, Sept, 2007. We'll have a karaoke session for sure.

I said you are like my mum not naggy.

Hmm, you = mum

but mum = naggy

So, you = mum = naggy #

Ok... you're naggy. ;)

Yup, but of coz what they pay you work
It's always fair and square
Like my ex colleague who needs to work even on sat and sun when he receives a call and it happens almost every sat and sun

It was great working with you Szerling. Thought we had some crappy times but on a whole it was fun.

We'll arrange a big farewell/sob party for you.

Cheers!
