The office

Most of us actually spend a lot of time in the office... Sometimes even more than the time we spend at home. A typical day for me starts at 7am. I leave my house by around 745am and I usually get home only by 8 or 9pm. That's more than 12 hours. Minus one hour of lunch and about two hours of commuting time, it is still 10 hours of my day spent in the office.

This also means I see my colleagues about 10hours every day!

For someone with my schedule, I end up with really very little time for my wife and my family. Actually, because everyone in my family has got their own activities and schedule, sometimes I don't even see them for days!

Anyway, the point is... 10 hours can be a lot of time. Over the span of almost 6 years, sometimes we can become more than just colleagues. For me, my colleagues have become the people I have been so accustomed to seeing everyday... It would just feel weird not seeing them. Some have seen me 'grow'... From a meat-eater to a vegetarian... To getting 'attached' and finally getting married. Along the way, I have learnt a lot from my colleagues. They have thought me how to be a better person.

It will be with a very, very heavy heart when I leave...

I know that kind of feeling. Even though I've never worked that long, I still feel heavy when leaving my colleagues. Fortunately, we still get together occasionally by organising trips, house party and yumcha or yumzao (beer drinking) sessions.

We humans are sentimental creatures, aren't we?

But with each change we get to know new people.
