Today I met my ex-colleague. It was our 2nd meeting in the last 6 months. Quite unusual since we used to see each other at least 5 days a week. It kinda made me realize something, that no matter how smooth my life is at the moment, I still miss those old people with old routines that used to filled up my days years ago.
I miss my ex-colleagues, Fira and her funny swearing words, Bu Virsa and the way she always whispered while talking to me, Feby who was always outspoken about everything, the softspoken Julie, and my two colleagues during my short spell at Towers Watson, Eva and Tanti. I miss working with them, I miss eating lunch with them, I miss being around them… There were also these intern boys, Johandy and Fandy, Ray, Alvin and Denny, Nico and Erik, Ivan and Theo, who helped me a lot at school and made my life easier and more colorful esp during the first years of my teaching career as a young teacher. It was nice to have those boys around, so that I didn’t feel too young.. =p
I also miss my uni friends. My ex-roomie, Dolla and Ci Yoana my two closest people in NTU who had taken care of me, buy me food when I was sick, hugged me when I cried, pulled me up when I was about to fail and simply be there 24/7. My “nenek”, Helga, one that just came into my life and been staying here ever since. My little sister, Eva, one of the few that I can bully. My “maid”, Vina, who always knew what to say and how to answer any questions, even though she had no idea whether it’s true or not. There was also Pau, Ying Yin, Czarina, Yudiz, Ryan. And how could I not miss Mike, whom I have known since my green days in high school and spent another 3 to 4 years at NTU as well.
The list is still long if I have to mention those that I miss from my high school, junior high and primary days. How I wish I could just borrow Doraemon’s time machine and visit the old days for an hour or two… just to see those people again, doing things we used to do… Coz people changed and sometimes I find that I like the old ones better… nonetheless, I still love them just as I did back then. And today’s person is no exception… thank you, nai nai Ellince to have helped me bringing back those nice old memories…
