Farewell to TM

At last my Voluntary Separation Scheme (VSS) has been approved - that's when the company you work with pays you for leaving your job. Great, eh? Well, it beats resigning with no compensation at all! Had to keep my actual reason a secret, except to Ummi who had been a gem of a friend. I knew the rest wouldn't understand...stop working? sayang gaji dah banyak... Well, if anything happens to hubby, siapa nak susah?...muka ni jugak kaan. Somehow I just want them to be happy for me.......at least TM is happy, I am out of her way. A fresh graduate who will be paid a fifth of my salary can be hired :-). But how come I am not jumping for joy now that I am a fulltime homemaker. That is what I was hoping for & wished for when I was bogged down with work, when I was being reprimanded by bosses, when I had to work late, when encountered with traffic jams! I guess I still need the sense of security that a job offers... I remembered my mom saying..." ..tak apa dia ada ijazah, ada Masters" refering to my BSc & MSc... She is forever the positive one. Although my education have made me a better person, I don't know whether I can still use those 'papers' later on. I think I better cross the bridge when I get there, or else I will have more lines on my forehead & more silver in my hair..... My farewell note..
To all my superiors (bosses), colleagues, friends & acquaintances (kenalan2);
I have received my VSS approval letter yesterday & as of 1st Dec 2006 I will be one of those who have VSS-ed from TM. Funny...but I have always thought I would live, breathe & retire in TM :-). But life has many winding turns & I believe Allah knows what's best for us. My heartiest thank you & sincere gratitude to all superiors & bosses. I owe you for all your guidance & support throughout my career in TM. To my colleagues & project team mates, I won't forget your coorperation & commitment that you have given. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!. To my friends, haaa...what can I say!? You all are the BEST! . To all acquaintances, great knowing you all!. Lastly, I apologise for any words that have hurt your feelings & for any of my wrongdoings. Mohon halal makan minum. Insya Allah jumpa lagi...

emmm... dah lama kekadang dok tgk blog ni, tapi ni baru teringat nak baca yg lama2.... bukan baca semua pun... tgk yg mana menarik... cuma bila tengok tajuk farewell tu TM tu terasa nak baca...

ntah la... saya pun rasa takkan nak dok kat TM sampai mati? we'll see.... 4 time the time being, I'm happy with subsidiary of TM, a mix culture of TM & outsiders.... a lerning process, I think...

We have to 'move' sooner or later. An organisation that encourages learning is in fact a good one! Stick your head out, u're still young! :)
