I've survived the first week at my new workplace in Jln Pinang. I must say it is an adjustment from my comfort in my previous job. I have to find new places to eat, new people to lunch with, from a designated parking space to a paid one (RM6 per day), but best of all, i'm starting work at 9am now instead of 8am.
But well, i miss my colleagues. Even though my new colleagues are younger or of the same age group as me, it seems to me that they lack the spunk and laughter i used to share with my ex colleagues. If anything, the office is horribly quiet on most days and everyone's working hard on whatever it is that they are doing.
No doubt the new office is more efficient and everything's systematic but then maybe what it lacks is a sign of LIFE. Everyone's going about their own business and trying to catchup with the ever-revolutinizing telco industry. No one has time to stop for a chat or two.
Just as "Pah" used to tell me, we are the types who would just adjust to a new environment but not necessarily conforming to other people's way of working. I would still continue to be my old self i guess, with the right balance of work and play. Oh no, I'm not gonna be a slave to the company that I don't have a share in :).
