In about 1 month from today, most of the employees of this factory would be leaving the company. Last week the retrenchment letters were already circulated. There were about 70 employees were offered contract employment term of various options. And those who were offered the contract would have until the end of this week to decide whether to take up the offer or not. There is still one more group to be offered within the next month. In actual term, this is our last month being the full time employee of this company.
There would be around 40 who would be leaving at the end of the month of December. Amongst them would be PS. I would be staying until 31 March 2007. My name was originally in the group with 31st December 2006, but at the eleventh hour, I was asked whether I could stay on a little longer. Since I have not committed to any employment just yet, I decided to accept the request. Boleh lah dok makan gaji for another 3 months tu kan hehehe.
I have no idea why I was asked to stay but, I presumed that they have received their corporate decision on what to make of this factory. The idea so far is that the factory would be turned into a regional hub for one of the core activities to support the company business. There is one such center in the Klang Valley, but they have space constraint there. Since the factory here offered ample space with no rental cost, the idea of setting up the hub here seemed a very viable one. As of now, they are only committed to plan for 1 year ahead only. They need to review other factors before deciding to continue or close down the entire premise. That was the reason for giving some of the employees a year contract to ensure that the business is continued and that the customer is served as normal as before. Let's hope that they really would be turning this facility as planned and that they would need someone to coordinate the activities in this facilities. I would have a glimpse of hope to be offered the job. Amboi!! Masih dok berharap lagi tu.
From the beginning of the year until March 2007, I would really be missing most of my friends/colleagues. It would really be very quiet here in the office and I foresee that I would be yawning and counting the hours in the office. Wouldn't it be nice if I would bring a sofa bed to the office or a small TV to sleep or amuse myself. Nak start tengok telenovela ni, just to past the time tu, hehehe. Gone would be those who I always would go to lunch with, gone would be my clerk who always be reminding me the time for the zuhur prayer. Gone would be people whom I could "tell" (shout is more appropriate actually) my frustration and let off steam when I need to release my tension. I am already missing them as I type this entry.
What would I do for the next 3 months after this ? I foresee a lot of time would be on the internet surfing away, chatting with friends (so those who do not want me to disturb you, you'd better put yourselves invisible on the YM hehe). I hope they woould not cut-off internet connection or block off blogspot. Mati kutu lah aku tak dapat nak bloghopping nanti tu.
Of course, I need to do a lot of office housekeeping. I had started but, somehow there is no momentum and the motivation to clear up my office. Maybe when there're not many people around, I would be in better "mood" to do housekeeping. Dah terpaksa buat masa tu kann.. hehe. What else could I do? Read/finish up a book. Do some research on where to find capital to start a small business maybe. Research on what type of business maybe. Well the list is endless. But.......... would I be up to it? Rasa macam malas je ni hehe. Dok fikir nak duduk rumah, tak payah sibuk2 rush to work. One more thing, I need to polish up on the resume, so that if there is an opportunity somewhere, I would be ready for it.
Anyway, whatever I would do to fill up the time, would defend also on other factors. I think the 3 months would end very fast. But until then, I woud have to concentrate on spending some quality time with those who would be leaving. Need to make sure, we are all in good spirit (not depressed over the predicament), we have good memories together and keep in touch with them.
