What more you could ask for on your first day working at a new workplace?
On the day I reported for duty at this new place, I was given the welcome pack, which includes the job T&C and all the necessary forms I was required to fill up, as expected. But the time I spent on filling up the form on personal particulars was cut to half since I skipped the details of spouse and children part. Phew! How could they expect one to remember spouse's IC no. and birthday?! :-p
But, it wasn't just the welcome pack. Look what I've got on my first day of working (err.. did I really work yesterday? hahahaha)
A BlackBerry with company-registered sim card that includes unlimited GPRS usage, a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop which comes with two sets of mouse and battery charger, which means I could leave one set at home and another set in office. Very cool! And the ThinkPad uses fingerprint to log in! Ever cool!!
That's not all... heheheh... a Petronas petrol card with my name and my car registration number printed on the card! Really cool but darn! I should've not filled up my petrol tank just before I went to office yesterday morning.
All those are nothing much compared to what I got from my colleagues in the old workplace as my farewell gift. Besides a framed Class of 2007 picture, I got this one from them. Thank you, I love you all!
The aquamarine stone arouses feelings of sympathy, trust, harmony, friendship and good feelings which are based on mutuality and which prove their worth in lasting relationship (from Gem by Gem). And according to Meg, aquamarine is a stone of courage; enhance one's ability for rapid intellectual response; accelerate reasoning process and unconquerable through learning (aku tak tau mana source dia ni).
That was my first day at the new place. Hari yang gelap, kini telah terang (although I still haven't been paid the bonus due to me).
Also, did I mention earlier that my boss is outstation and will only be back on Monday?! Owh! That's a 3-day honeymooning and 'gentel'ing with my BB (bukan bontot besar atau boobs besar; it's BlackBerry, dude!)
