The sweetness of doing nothing. The phrase that has been my working maxim after I decided not to renew my contract with my previous employer. Although the decision was well thought of and the plans were all laid out – I still felt a sense of loss. A sense of unworthiness…of non-contributing. But in life we make decisions that totally change the path of our existence. We may feel ruined inside – but as Liz puts it, ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation. And that road led me to appreciate life better.
When they say life is a box full of surprises...I got mine when I received a phone call for a job interview. Actually, there were three rounds of interviews and passing each interview was like getting back my confidence. And the third interview proved to be worth getting it back…and I even got a bonus…a job.
The first day at work was good and it made even better because my bestfriend Liza and her family treated me to a good buffet dinner at the Marriott Hotel, Resorts World. The ambience is delectable…the setting is mouth-watering. I held my excitement for a while but could not resist the temptation of taking a bite to their scrumptious prawns…presented in all its shimmering redness. The dinner was a blast, though it is still comparable to Sofitel’s Spiral. And a good cup of cappuccino was the best way to end the overindulging.
