Thank You

Today marks the last day of my attachment in the company I am working for. The past six weeks have been full of ups and downs, and for the past six weeks too, I learn more than what the objective of it has to offer.

Yes, what I have to learn I have learnt, that is to understand the working life, and probably understand that school is way more fun than work. Enough said.

I learn both what is good and bad, made decisions, and listen to not only one side of a story. And yes, the gift that was given to me which says "In our office there isn't much to see, but what you hear makes up for it". Indeed, you don't get to see the sun, nor rain, even if there's a riot out there, you wouldn't know, but you will hear people talking about the news, about what happened in the morning, so on and so forth. What's more, office gossips and politics.

By experiencing this job and sideline, I now understand more how the system exactly works, and how hard it is to be rejected, but at the same time, sound happy and overcome fear the next moment in the name of professionalism.

I've done beyond what is expected, I did my best. As an intern, I do hope I do make a mark in everyone's working life there. Even if new interns are taking over my place, I hope my aura will still be there. I went beyond the line, not only me though, the decorations and all. Although to some it may sound pointless, but the effort that was put in, and the images pasted comes with a hope that I will be remembered.

I would like to thank those who helped me during my first few days at work, and thanks to Margaret for the wonderful support and knowledge. Thank you to the colleagues sitting close to me like Kak Dian, Banu, Riaz, Sudesh and the rest in "Little India" for helping me through and reminding me of my purpose being there.

Thank you to the "Geylang Serai" too which includes Reanne who was an intern leaving with me. Reanne did help me a lot when I first came in too, and the entertainment by people like Kak Azza, Shima, Sabrina, Jezz, Sarah, and people alike. You people never fail to wet my pants laughing. Yes, "Ketua Mesyuarat Tingkap" has left and I think you will find replacement soon.

The "Chinatown" people like Boon See and people around, thank you for updating me on my e-mails. Otherwise I would not have bothered to read them.

Thank you to Isaac who treated me lunch a day before my final day, and thanks to Suraya for being such a wonderful supervisor. Would not have made it without those motivating ingredients.

To those new interns who will be taking over my place, have fun working. Knowing you all for just two days has been great, and all the best!
