Looking Back

This is probably my last entry from the office. I have 10 working days more to go inclusive of today. After that? Who knows. I have not recieved any new job offer right now. So most likely I would be at home for I have no idea how long. It would be nice for the first few weeks I guess, as I would not have to rush through to complete the work at home before rushing to the office. Not having to have to think of what to wear to the office for the day. Not having to think what I would do at the office for the day to let the days passed by. If I wanted to, I can always go back to sleep after the girls have gone to school and hubby to work. :-) Mengeram atas katil no? hehehe. But I don't see that I would have that luxury though. I may be be taking it a little easier though.
But I wonder how long it would be before boredom eventually set it. I do have my stay-home plan remember? :-) Now, I really need to execute those plans. At the same time I may even have to set a time table so that I can fill up the days more effectively.
Looking back, 2 years ago I was really bored in this office. I knew that at the end of the day, something like this will happen. It was just a matter of when, sooner or later. I didn't expect to be loosing my job, but as the new development set in then it was clear that I would be redundant. That's almost normal in take over situations. As there were not much things to be done, I took to the internet, looking for some interesting things to do and to read. I stumbled upon blogs and was bloghopping like crazy. Putting comments everywhere, making myself known, making new friends on the blogsphere. Through times some friendships did develop into something stronger. It was really amazing that we can make friends and become rather close to those friends even though we have never set eyes on them.
In the end I can no longer resist the temptation to start my own blog. After a few encouragement I started my first entry. Through blogging I found an avenue to vent my frustrations at time, my sadness, my happiness etc. Thank you to all who have been reading and giving me the encouragement all this while.
When the time comes for me to stop working, I had been asked to stay for another 3 months (Jan - March 2007). OMG, I thought, what am I going to do for the next 3 months. Absolutely, "makan gaji buta, goyang kaki saja". I know, it's a job most people would die for hehehe. There's almost nothing to do. I pictured myself falling asleep on my chair (if I don't fall OFF it, hehe).
To tell you guys the truth, I did doze off a few times on the chair for the last 3 months. :-)
So as the end is near, I am actually thankful that I have had this extension. I used the time to do a lot of research and reading. Sampai naik kero mata aku dok baca e-book. After this I definitely need to go and change my specs. I took myself off the blogsphere and chatting to do that. Now you know ekk, why I rarely update my blog nowadays hehehe. There were days which I didn't event bloghopped, I have lost touch with a lot of what people been discussion on the blog. If I did read blogs then it would be the selected few ( friends and family plan - macam iklan prepaid pulak dah!). Meebo pun tak bukak, sekali sekala bila dah rasa terlalu bosan baru aku chatting sekejap. Sekejap2 pun setengah hari jugak tu.
What have I been reading or researching? It will remain my own secret for the time being. But one of the topics is on MENOPAUSE hahahaha.......

Have you visited my blog AN? If you like to enjoy life and don't mind strangers hanging around and make a lot of friends and some financial gain in return, have a look on the hyperlink provided with the article. I might be going that way.

AN,

Its great to see u posting someting about this.... FYI, i was one of the last (as Mr HR put it, survivors) to have left the KL office and it was soooo sad to see the office being torn down for its new tenants.

Like u said the past couple of years was boring.... but the previous years were memorable enough and I was sad to leave.

Looking forward to see your posts in the future.

Hugs,
AMZA

Ari said...

An, I'm talking about the horses and opportunity not boats.Boats are just my hobby.

AuntyN said...

meandbaby : InsyaAllah bila AN dah buat tu akan share kat blog no hehehe.

AMZA : How's things at the new place? I hought blogs are blocked there. Will try to keep this blog up anyway.

En Ari : Oh, nak masuk bisnes kuda ye? Nak ajak AN jadi partner ke ? hehehe

alinlai : MLM? Nak promote tu yang tak reti. AN masuk MLM sebab nak pakai barang sendiri aje lah. Nak cari downline tu masyaAllah masalah besar tu hehe.

Salam to kak AN.

Tu laa...dok heran jugak awat lama kak AN tak update. Merajok ka?Sakit ka? Sibuk ka? Ropa-ropanya dok kalut baca e- bok( tok saya sebut book as bok).Alhamdulillah banyak la ilmu yg menafaat kak AN muleh.

Lagi 10 hari noo...memang mula2 syiok rehat di ghumah tak gheja tapi tak sampai sebulan akan naik bosan dan ghimaih.But I'm sure you ada plan A,plan B etc dah kan.

InsyaALLAH you'll do okay.
Ni nak tanya sikit( ni malu dah ni tau...). Cek ni memang dok teringin nak boh lagu mcm Kak AN boh lagu Rod stewart tu tapi tak gheti nak wat lagu mana. Boleh cerita dak? cek nak boh lagu dikiaq barat Etong Ason ni...

TQ.Semoga berjaya dan bergembira with what ever you plan to do selepas bersara.

BLOG TETAP BLOG K?..

Anonymous said...

A'kum AN,

Blogs blocked?? No such thing, if it were there wouldn't be anything for me to do. Most of everyone are already intergrated into the new org and already busy into their duties, but in my case, my line manager does not know what to do with me....

So, I am somewhat demoralised and had wished they had put me in with your group of ppl (if u know what i mean ehhehehe)

Oh well, we'll see how life picks up.

Hugs,
AMZA

AuntyN said...

pB : Kelab RTM? hehehe. Ada membership fees ka? Macam mana nak join. :-)

Bak mai email nak cerita macam mana nak bubuh lagu. Actually AN punya ni pun Makandeh yang tolong bubuh, tapi try tokai cerita kat tokasid OK.

AMZA : Hang in there. If they feel they don't need you they'll surely give you a package too. I think sooner or later they will consolidate their operation there.

Madam N:

i think this would be a good gift for you leaving working life.

Bag, Sack, Rack

hey there traveller vexed,
relax,
it's the only thing you can pack,
when trudgung in a world mastered by a man made of wax,
now sit is what you have to do next,
free your bag and put it in my sack,
give it to me so I can put it on my rack.

vexed traveller,
eat as I know you are haunted by hunger,
as I know every traveller is also a hunter,
looking for the mystical beast no mind can figure,
to give you strength traveling in the path of meander,
that the hunger would set you lost in anger,
and ends you as a meal cook on a sweet fire.

I know, I know it's a heavy bag,
I know, I know the content is no hag,
but you really should put it in my sack,
and you really should put it on my rack,
it would really make you relax,
and free you from the contunious vex,
I should know for I am the paver of every traveller's track.
