End of an era...

Starting tomorrow (I guess), a company that I use to work for will not exist anymore. It will be dissolved. Compared to Inti, that is the second longest company that I worked for from 2001 - 2003. I am sad things turn out this way but I guess that is life and they just depend on one source for income, and when the source does not want to renew the contract, thats it.

I was with the company since psdc was freaking small until its freaking big today. The company is one of the training provider for psdc during those days. I still remember the small pond where we use to watch fish. I still remember carrying stuff during the movement from the old psdc building to the new psdc building. I still remember the incident with CL where first someone stepped on her shoes, then I accidentlky step the second time until the straps broke (was that me, I was kinda blur?). And I still remember conducting training 9-5 then have class 6.30-10.30 =.=.

I still remember the "little monster" a girl who is smaled sized but makes so much noise until I had to buy wafers just to fill her mouth to keep her quiet ^^. I still remember the horrible batch 9 that raises people's blood pressure and even i lost patience with them once. Still remember when Moven had a mild heart attack and had to be send to the hospital...

During those days I was a gaming freak and used to recommend games to my co workers and even lending them my cds. Then during tea we would discuss the walkthrough or even some quest that someone got stuck at. And we would have breakfast at 9 am, lunch around 12 or 1 and tea at 3.30. Those were the good old times..Sometimes for lunch we would walk out and buy food at the Malay stall outside (is it still there?). And Yani will be calculating how many cans of milk he can buy with the salary.

But things change, or I should say people change. I dare not say the relation between some of the co worker and the company is still amiable. Some might not be able to sit together in one table now. Too many things have happened since then...

All I can say is farewell, we might have good and bad memories, but i was glad I had the chance to serve you for around 3 years. Anyone wants to apply inti, 3 of us are here already...

THREE? You, TW, and who?

Actually, the company is not "dissolved", per se. It will still handle the part-time classes, tentatively.

The problem, IMHO, is not having only one income. It was failing to equip its work force with new skills that PSDC's own people do not possess. But how could it do that when most its people were made to teach more than 30 hours a week?

Some of those folks still love to sit around a cafeteria table and talk about movies, games, and other nonsense. At least PC and I still do. YJ talks mostly about his own problems/musings these days and is hardly interested in anything else. :-p

I think the Malay food stall is still there. And I have chanced across Yani a couple of times in Balik Pulau before he moved his whole family there (is it Nilai?) I think with what he is earning now, there should be no more worry about how many cans of milk powder he can buy. :-D

In the short term, you will not see PC and M hopping over to Inti or anywhere else because they still owe PSDC a quarter of their study fees (for their Master's degrees). X-D

The big guy (the other big guy, that is) is contemplating missions work in Cambodia, but I doubt he will really take that leap of faith. :-)

Wish you were here for the drama. :-p

For a BETTER job, I think. :-) Who are you talking about, exactly?
