Happen to meet my old friend on the road, as he juz get retrencement recently.At least got his retrencement package, although I left this company long ago...

If that's bad need 3 months to get the job.He still hunting job since oct...06. :roll:

:roll: Nothngs gd thngs or bad thngs really happen to me...
But almost get accidents twice ,while driving on the road near the town.

Suppose the taxis driver need to look out for any car on the road ,while turn from small road to the main road, without watching ,he turn in a high speed.
:D Lucky that I m alert enough to change the center lane to the right lane.
& fortunately the right lane car change to center lane....at that time... :lol:

Wish my life will be more meaningful...and peaceful.

Healing, personal growth, and reconciliation with my ex after a very painful break-up.

I left my job of 9 years with my very first employer ... it was difficult but sometimes you have to let go ...

I wasn't unhappy with the job ... colleagues were great ... but I need time to sort of my move out of Singapore... where the grass is truly greener and skies certainly bluer ... :D

I left my old job for a job which I didn't know would give me a chance to travel around South East Asia.

You're right, ksl. Forgiveness and letting go of the past is so difficult, but worth every minute of struggle. I think for the first time in my life I can put self-mastery as an achievement. So 2006 was a good year. :)

Nice one WIMH.

I went through a very similiar experience and it takes a lot of courage to forgive and let go of your hate for some one you used to love and hurt you a lot - But like you say it is worth it - Who needs to carry that baggage along with all the rest of stuff in life.

Well done and congrats :cool:

1. Started a new company.
2. Got in touch with the girl that used to court quite aggressively and apologised to her.
