Foremost, I'm going to miss riding my motorcycle to work. For more or less 11 years it was my daily routine. I would definitely be reminiscing all the adventures and travels we had, the good and not so good times. I used 3 motorcycles during my stay, the longest would be my very own Honda XR200, which generally speaking had never let me down. And with it, using my "Caltex StarCard" whenever I needed to gas up (though the fuel allocation was used in work-related transactions still a great help). Also the maintenance allowance given by the company (though recently became complicated because of some tax issues and policy revisions)... hehehe.
I would also miss my office in Calinan. Though I'm alone, there were advantages: I can work faster since I got no distractions. I can easily plan out things and execute. I learned to evaluate and handle different situations. And I was exposed more in the operations and to dealing with different personalities around. Learned a lot... Aside from the free lunch in the canteen (part of the privileges of being an area auditor), I would miss a lot from there... friends, companions, the pineapple fields, the rough roads and the auditees, as well.
I'll miss our main office, our company, who had been very generous to their employees. The 13th month, vacation and sick leave conversions, bonuses, and good salary pay, had helped me provide for my family's needs through the years. Not to mention, the activities it gives to their employees (sportsfest, Christmas party and other enriching programs for development and enhancement of camaraderie). I'm more than grateful to it. My department and co-employees (previous and new ones), who mostly were my mentors... there were those who taught me how things were done, and there were those who showed me how not to do things. Let just say, it started well and gladly it ended well... it was good while it lasted.
Can't deny, I'm going to miss my job, but good opportunity knocks only once in life. And besides, I have my whole family with me in this journey, a new chapter in our lives...and the Lord's grace have been showering us. In life, we just need to have faith, and trust in His plans for us. Yahweh bless.
