Bidding Adieu...

Yesterday, my boss and colleagues threw a farewell party for me.  Well, as of now, I am officially on leave for the remaining of three working days. I had a mixed feelings but above all, I'm just feeling relieve that my affair here is finally wrapped up.  Oh, I shall be back but it'll be as a mere visitor. Come to think of it, I am a visitor here. Albeit, my visit here had extended to 6 long years...that's a long visit for sure..

Back to the farewell party. I was sad but of course, I didn't shed any tears. I even cracked a joke or two where everyone laughed obligingly. Hah, I think I do posses a comedian's soul hidden somewhere on my person :) Well, my boss is sure having a heavy heart to let me go but he told me that he's happy for me. Whereas someone pointed out that I must be so happy to be able to go back to my hometown.  My reply to that person was: no matter how happy we are in one place, everyone's hometown is still the best place in this whole wide world. I am sad leaving you guys, but I am happy. Real happy.  Saying goodbye is not the end of everything, it's a new beginning of a new journey in life.

I didn't really make speech. I kept my words  brief and simple. I thanked everyone for being my helpful colleagues and apologized for any wrongdoings. Hmmm...never knew I'd be receiving several gifts. They must really enjoyed having me as their colleague :)
