Kenapa hari ini ramai sangat yang bersedih. Baca kat blog kawan2 pun ada yang tengah bersedih. Kalau tak pun, ada yang tulis tentang cerita2 sedih! Hari ini hari sedih sedunia ke?
Lepas tu pulak, tengah2 lunch tadi, dapat call dari one of my old colleague. She's a Chinese Sarawakian. Let me start the story about her first ye! Dia salah seorang rakan yang terpilih bersama2 saya, untuk working on one big tender yang bermillion2 valuenyer few years back. We all bekerja bersama2 another few staffs, together with my immediate boss now dan juga few Ausie staffs from another partner that is based in AUS.
We have to spend time working on the tender preparation, work late most of the time , and standby for almost 24 hours to gather all the information for tender bidding. Kadang2 terpaksa korbankan cuti weekend juga. Again, kena working so hard during tender clarification, sebab waktu M'sia and AUS yg berbeza terpaksalah kerja di office hingga ke subuh. Tetapi semua pengorbanan itu benar2 berbaloi, when we won the tender. She and me, together with few staffs and also few staff from the other partner performed a team to manage the project. I was then the Project Administrator.
Rasanya, on the 2 year during construction time, she resigned. Reason why, she need to go back to her hometown in Sarawak to look after her old parents. As a friend even I'll miss her then, I'll support her on whatever decision that she had made. She'll try to get a job there in Sarawak, that is nearer to her parents home. That's what her plan is.
She called today, saying she's in KL now for a week and wanna see me. She told me this :
She : I've resigned from my previous company. So many politics there. I can't stand lah!
Me : I think every office also sama leh!. Sure got politic one, even a bit2!
She : You know what, I really missed you when I'm working there. There's nobody there that I can turn to when I've problem.
Me : You dun hv any friend there ma?
She : Most of them are so selfish. You dun know who to trust and whom can be trusted also!
Me : Really ?
She : You know I missed someone like you, who are really supportive, understanding, know how to differentiate between work and personal things, always willing to help each other and the best part is you always spare your shoulder for me to cry on ! ( She was almost cried at that them !)
Me : Maybe you need some time. You'll find one good friend, one day!
She ; No,lah, if there is an award for the best colleague I have ever had, I would like to give it to you!. I really missed you and always hope you are here !
Me : ( I burst into tears already)... Your darling is there right! You can look for him!
She : Yes, but it's not the same, I really need someone like you!
Me : (Speechless)................
(That's are part of the long telephone conversation hari ini. Ada sikit2 kena alter kat part2 tertentulah ye!).
Menarik nafas panjang2 saya selepas talian dihentikan. I got nothing to say now!.........Apa yang boleh saya katakan, for you my dear friend, saya akan sentiasa mendoakan yang terbaik dalam hidup awak! All the best dear ! And remember I will always be there for you!
(Maaf, kalau bahasa2 saya dok berterabur sakan...... harap2 faham lah ye!
