I'm goin' home....

Yap, tomorrow by 2pm I'll be home again. Couldn't wait to see my parents, grandma, siblings, my cute nephews, aunts & uncles, cousins and some close friends.
As I see it, I'll be very busy trying to do everything at once during my time there....
I'm sure I'll be having a grand time...

ta..ta..gotta pack...

Last Day at Work

Opo, last day ko ngayon dito sa kumpanya. Medyo tumagal din ako dito ng apat at kalahating taon. Ito rin ang unang kumpanya na napasukan ko dito sa Singapore. Grateful naman ako sa lahat ng natutunan ko dito na nagbukas ng iba't ibang magagandang oportunidad para sa akin. Malungkot din ako kasi me mga maiiwan akong kaibigan dito.

Well, we have to move on sometimes and I feel that this is the right time for me....
so for now:
goodbye SMOE Pte Ltd

Another Lunch...

My DC group treat me out today. Again another thai restaurant. Natutuwa naman ako at madami rin naman ang nagpapahalaga sa akin lalo na at malapit na akong umalis dito. And since every month yata ay may umaalis ang biruan ay paliit na lang ng paliit ang table pag me lunch treat sa isang umaalis. Alfred was saying that at the end it will only be him in a fast food restaurant wishing himself well with a combo meal hehehe...

Enjoy naman ako sa lunch namin. I was with Cons, Alfred, Jenny, Kui cheng, Joyce, Shao qing and Lina.
Thanks guys...

Lunch Today...

Since malapit na matapos ang araw ko sa kumpanya, kabi-kabila ang treat ng lunch. This time I was treated by our Project PEM, Patrick. I was with Constance and Kee Hoe. We went to a Thai restaurant near our work place and it's really quite good (by my standard heh)...We've had mango salad, stuffed chicken wing, tom yam soup, deep fried fish, olive rice and pineapple rice. Tsalap talaga ng thai food..

It was nice of Patrick to do this on my behalf...
I'll surely miss these guys.

Mini skirts in the city…..

Dito sa little red dot normal na yung makita mo yung mga babae na naka mini skirt, at di lang basta mini ha, mismong micro mini pa.
Sa isip isip ko lang kaya ganun dito ay dahil sa mga sumusunod:

- unang una di sila sumasakay dito sa tricycle, imagine mo kung naka mini ka tapos sasakay ka sa tricycle na kasing baba ng lupa
- pangalawa di sila sumasakay dito sa jeep, imagine yung mga jeep na halos kapantay ng waistline mo ang taas ng entrance (assuming maliit ka)
- wala ditong mga manyak na halos hubaran ka na kung tumingin
- wala ditong nambabastos sa daan
- wala ditong pulaera at pakialamera sa suot ng tao…
- lastly, hindi dito mahangin sa labas so hindi lilipad ang palda mong maiksi..

When it rains, it pours...

And so it goes...
The classic example is my current situation: ayun after maka-commit ako sa company na lilipatan ko ay saka naman kabi-kabila ang offer ng ibang kumpanya, at mas magaganda ang job package..sus, kung kelan committed na ko ah saka nililito ang aking isip ng ganitong mga offer. Anyway sabi ko nga sa friendship ko ay nanghihinayang na lang ang theme song ko kasi wala akong choice kung hindi mag decline kasi nga pumirma na ko dun sa naunang kumpanya. Maganda din naman ang offer dun, international company din, ang kaibahan lang ay permanent position itong latest offer compared sa contractual basis yung sa lilipatan ko. And besides hiniling ko din na ibigay sa akin ni Lord yung una so mahirap tanggihan di ba??? Baka bigla itigil ang supply ng blessings sa buhay ko.....

Sabay sabay kantahin:...nanghihinayang....nanghihinayang ang isip ko....hehe..

The people I'll miss...

And these are the people I'll miss here; somehow they've made a difference in my four years stay:

from the Structural group – Yu Qing, Chandra, Muru, Nashir, Tini, Dzul
from the Electrical group – Wei Ling, Grace, Michelle
from the Piping group – Soni, Chinna
Project Coordinators – Kee Hoe, Ashok, Patrick, Kumar
Boss – EC, Tjek
Planning group – CS, Helen, Joyce, Charles, Chung
IT – Ajay
DC group – Cons, Alfred, Joyce, Kui Cheng
The Pinoys – Ritchie, Mang Paul, Mang Aaron and others


Thank you guys, some I’m sure will keep in touch, some will have the same fate as previous colleagues, will fade from memory but still will be part of the collective memory to be dug into once in a while (maybe during old age heh….)

What I'll miss…

Eto ang mga ma-mi-miss ko dito sa kumpanyang ito:
- uncle driver from our morning bus service
- uncle driver from our evening bus service
- the free transport and the 5 min walk from our house to the bus pick-up point
- the 10min drive from pick-up point to work place, lapit lang noh!?
- food sa canteen kahit na apat na taon na yung menu nila
- Fish & Chip pag Tuesday, Fish soup pag Wednesday, Briyani Rice pag Friday
- my cubicle, my chair, my pillow, my pc (bago ko ba naayos ergonomically ang aking work station noh!)
- all the girlie abubots on my desk, some have to be given away before I leave
- free access to internet anytime I want, need I say more?
- updating this blog anytime I want
- unlimited use of phone line for chikahan
- able to use hp anytime I want
- not a single person to report to, my accountability is to the project I am handling.
- colleagues I have worked with, some become friends, some are pains in the ass.

Feeling senti…but on the other hand…yeheyyyy!!!!

Lakas tawa ko dito.....

Very funny kaso I need someone to translate hehehe...

Kung nag "gay speak" sila ni GMA, eh, di wala sanang gulo ngayon. Ganito sana ang dialogue:

GMA: Hallo, Gracia!

Garci: Yes, Mother! Natsuktsak ko na po yung mga chuva ek-ek!

GMA: Bonggacious! E, yung tienes-tienes, carry na ba?

Garci: Winnie Santos na, Mama. Wis na worry kay Aling Minda. Eclavou and ever!

GMA: Ay, ang tarush Zsa Zsa Padilla!

Sa wakas natuloy din…

Opo, nakapag pasa na ako ng aking notisyo sa pagbibitiw sa trabaho, pagkaraan ng halos apat na taon at kalahati ay nagkaroon din ako ng tapang at tiwala sa sarili na kaya kong umalis sa aking kumportableng sona.

So one month after today, I will be in a new environment, bagong pakikisama, bagong pag-gawa ng pangalan within the organization at bagong buhay trabaho. Sigurado ako na makakaya ko ang lahat.
