No Mood

This morning I got a very nice email from my lady boss, praising me in front of Director. The mail mentioned that I did a very good job on yesterday's third party audit. So, oklah, I was happily went off to join the team on a US conference call. So sweet, I felt so happy as boss appreciate my hard work. Normal, right? But now, my mood shrunk after the GM's announcement on VSS. My mood swings like a roller coaster. Ups and downs just in few hours time.

Most of us have the same question in our mind. "Will it be me?" All of us start calculating the amount. Not really an attractive figure. :( Formula is fixed. We really can't do much. Whatever will come, it will still happen.

I believe "if there's a will, there's always a way". So, I won't die in hunger as long as I'm willing to work. If I can't work here anymore, I'll need to work elsewhere. Perhaps, it's a good time for me to explore a new path for myself. Who knows?

Liang Mui,the compensation is not attractive at all. Furthermore, now is the recession period, very hard to get a new job.

Moomookun, we should have think of the worst case before this. Disappointed and worry now... Sob Sob...
