My last day at work..today. There was haze over in Cyberjaya out of a sudden but it cleared upÂ before noon.Â I was cool and all. Worked as usual and tried to finish off as much as I could. I could have chose to laze and surf but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.
I bought one of my colleagues a pair of earringsÂ as a token of thanks and appreciation and she wore it to work today to show me how much she loved the earrings. She’s the first friend I had when I joined the company and has been my close friend ever since. I don’t like to refer her as my colleague because she’s more to a friend to me. If you are reading this, I’m glad you liked the earrings!
There was a farewell party for me today with a chocolate cake, some fried meehoon and cucur udang. I’ve got a “Walking Nohohon Zoku” as my farewell present, together with a mobile phone holder. This “Walking Nohohon” will walk and say “Hello” and “I Love You” when you blow towards it, snap your finger or talk to it. Basically it reacts sensitively to its surroundings when switched on. Very cute!
Sent my colleague home for the last time andÂ he’s got to find his means of transportation starting tomorrow. It has been fun ridingÂ home with him as I get to blabber a lot in the car. He’ll be listening and I’ll be blabbering.
To my surprise, he also got me something on top ofÂ the sharedÂ gift that everyone in the department chipped in to get for me. If you are emoticon-crazy, you would have come across this monkey emoticon.Â They are Yoyo & Cici.Â Â This is what he gave to me and it came with a card, which was a killer. WHY?
After he got down from the car, I continued my journey home and I was already beginning to tear because I was already starting to miss the workplace. When I reached home and read the card, it somehow pushed the tear duct button.
Â ”I never expected I’d write you a farewell card. So sad, you’re leaving. But I’m glad to have fated to know suchÂ a great person. I’m happy to know good things (job & boyfriend) are coming your way now. Wishing you great years ahead in your job, career, life and better boyfriendss…(Update me if it comes true)”
See the double “S” behind the word boyfriend? I wanted to laugh. I only need one good boyfriend and I’d smile dying. The boyfriend part is definitelyÂ not aÂ good thing now and I’ve been telling him my relationship disaster stories. Current and past so he knows my frustration and hopes for a happy and fulfilling relationship.Â I guess the tears moved more because I really hope things would be like what he’s written, that it is coming my way.
That aside, I also have poems written by another colleague. I don’t really know how to describe him. I’ve never spoken face to face to him with more than 10 lines. Our conversation has been limited to just conversations online and that is also quite minimal.
Today, he wrote me 8 lines.
