There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say "cuckoo"
Regretfully they tell us Cuckoo, cuckoo
But firmly they compel us Cuckoo, cuckoo
To say goodbye . . .
- So Long, Farewell, Sound of Music
What's there for me to do now other than to try to hold on as hard as I can but I'm guessing that I'm not going to be able to make it as it's currently Chinese New Year time and everyone's is probably too busy house cleaning or whatever to even think about refinancing their houses. So by the end of next week, if I still have no documents on hand, I'll have to tie my white undies to a stick and wave it around.
If you think this is abrupt, it's even more so for me. I didn't really see it coming. It's only last Friday when I was I was told that if I have no acceptance by this end of the month, I should know what to do. In Chinese, "seng mok" la.
I'm not embarrassed to write all this down at the fact that I am losing my job because I do know that I did try my best at this job but due to some circumstances, I'm unable to hold on to it. I am indeed thankful to all the people who has helped me and supported me all these times. Thinking back, I do know of a few people that I'll miss dearly. I still hope to visit them, just that maybe next time, no longer as a banker.
There is still about 2 weeks to go so, know that I'll be working my ass off to save my ass all this 2 weeks. Wish me luck!
