Finally after more than one year of my resignation I was finally approved for early retirement. It was a very happy day for me as I see my plans will finally pursue. I wasn't informed that there will be some sort of despedida for me and it wasn't until few minutes before lunchtime that I was told by Berry, the youngest girl of my boss that they have prepared some food to feast on as my despedida. My despedida was both attended by my officemates from both companies and we feasted on chicken curry, lumpiang shanghai and pancit. Later I've bought ice cream for our desserts.
Those are few of my shots, first one with some of my officemates and the second one with Sir Bob's children, Ms. Berry and my junior boss Sir Bobby. I like their smiles here, makes me feel touched with their thoughtful words and valuable effort in making me feel special. He joked and told me not to cry lol! I'm not the least teary-eyed though I'm touched!
I served for the two companies of my boss for more than 16 years, ten years on consultancy doing technical proposals and bidding projects and 6 years on BT&T Telecoms/Network Corp. doing multi-task on being Billing & Collection Officer, Accounting Supervisor, Administrative and Human Resource Officer. Actually even if I have no educational background on all these jobs because I'm a Computer Eng'g. graduate I've learned the skills through experience. I thanked Sir Bob for letting me learned all of it. It was a privilege for me.
I had some talk with my younger boss and he arranged everything for this final day.
