MY farewell speech

When I left my firm I had a general farewell mail and a more specific one that I wrote to those I deemed closer. Reading it again and looking back, I wonder if it even means anything to anyone...

*dwells in emoness*

Below is the specific one.. super long.. so, skip if it bores you. =p


Hi all,

I am sorry to spam your emails with my CHEONG HEI farewell mail but here’s another one… with a more personal tone.

BTW… DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO THINK AND WRITE ALL THESE THINGS??? Hate speeches!!

THE MORE I TYPE, THE MORE MEMORIES STARTS TO FLOOD MY MIND AND NOW… THIS EMAIL… SO, happy reading! =p

If you find this long and tedious, just delete it but don’t say I didn’t think of you ya.

(Super amused that in my farewell card, lots of ppl wrote that they couldn’t write much due to AUSY and lack of space. )

AUSY…. Why didn’t I get a kickass HUGE farewell card like Kristin’s?? Muahaha. Then there would have been more space for ppl to write MORE touching stuff!! =p

And how come no one passed it to siaw ling to write a touching note to me???!!! =p

LET’S START…

KOKYUAN: You may not know it but I will always treasure the help/guidance you extended to me when I was an AA2. Kristin and I would always run to you for help whenever we were unsure about anything and you would explain things to us patiently AND without judging! And now that Fish A and B are gone, who’s your Fish C and D? =p

CHMY: AHAHA.. I do remember those days where we’ll chat nonstop til AYKO comes back into the room. Hehe. And he even stopped outside of the room once just to let us talk to our hearts content. All the best to you too in your new company and I hope that you’ll find job satisfaction!!

GABBY: I will always remember you for your white hair!! Hehe. Kidding!! You will always be engraved in my memories as the guy who stayed back late and taught me tax! I will also remember that you insulted my basic tax knowledge first, before embarking to give me a crash course. My tax knowledge is where it is and it’s all because of your tutelage!

CLY: You’ve always been one of the seniors that I have always looked up to. You were more of a senior to me during my first job, Dolo then my senior was. Thank you so much for all the explanations and gila moments. Hope we have more memories to built seeing the fact that I am your son’s lousy Godmother who never visits. =p

DARIO: Koko chai!! I probably blistered your ears during EPMM (Nilai) during the 45minutes journey to and fro with my incessant chattering. Stay strong and don’t be an 바보 to me!!

AYKO: SIFU!!! Thanks for letting CHMY and I to chat whilst you hovered outside the room during those KL Monorail days. And Thanks for the yummy food at Lygon St and freezing ice cream when I last saw you. Who knows, we might meet again soon. =p

CCM: Ahhh.. the senior that I was supposed to work with but fled to UK when he knew he was supposed to audit Control Techniques with me!

MUSKELS: Kristin and I would run to you for help but your “dry” and too techy explanations would drive us to KOKYUAN!! Wahahha. Kidding! Looking better than before. I shall miss your HUR HUR HURs and squeezing those muscles of yours! Stay strong TL! And did we ever agree to leave together? OH MY. I never knew that.

AUSY: Haha. Now who are you going to berscandal with after my departure? Muahahha. Faster find a REAL gf and settle down so that you can ppl besides ur juniors to boss around. You’re not getting any younger! Hehe. THANKS for organizing the farewell dinner and purchasing the present! I will always treasure the AA2 years of our chatting session with CLY and at the people we poke fun about. If you need a maid to clean house, call me, if you want a mate, call KAMz!

KENG: NOBITA!!! Why so serious and broody?? Be more friendly and chatty with your assistants lar. =p hahaa.. don’t forget call me out mamak NOT only when you need a listening ear ya! =p btw, my bday is in one month’s time on 8TH NOVEMBER!!!!

KRISTIN: BC!! What can I say about you?? MuahahahA.. Great knowing you and seeing you grow from SAM to METRO to WORK! Can’t believe how much you’ve changed from those early days of knowing you.
