Sayounara Dinner

" Jag kun, I believe you have a better plan, the reason why you're leaving the company. You see, I still wanted you to work with us but if that would be your decision, I respect that. Hope you can still keep in touch with us." - BOSS

Last Tuesday, my boss invited  the whole engineering team for a dinner. He wanted to eat *shabu-shabu so, that time he brought us to a Chinese shabu-shabu restaurant which is located at Pasay Road in Makati City (I forgot the name of the restaurant...uhmmm sounds like Thian Thian or something). And yeah,  the said dinner was intended for me 'coz it' was my last day of work in the company. Whew! Good thing he treated us, nakaligtas ako sa panlilibre sa mga officemates ko wahihihi. The food were awesome. Sorry, I wasn't able to take some pictures. I was too shy to take food photos while I'm with my boss. Otherwise, I would look silly to him if I did (or it's just me thinking that way) LOL.

I am  thankful that my boss was happy for my decision and finally accepted my resignation. He actually kept on asking  many times before if I can revoke my decision. He even "offered" me something but I could only answer him  a  smile lol (hindi kasi sapat ang offer niya haha joke lang). But I never rued working in the company. I am so blessed with the opportunities they'd presented me.  I am supposed to fly  for Thailand last August  but I declined. I guess many of you  thinks  that I am foolish eh? Well, I am haha. But seriously, I finally got tired. Hindi na masaya and no longer productive at work. Pinag-isipan ko nga ito ng matagal, consulted some people, minsan din bumyahe at nagpakalayo-layo mag-isa just to weigh things. And finally came up with this kind of decision--- to start anew. I know I'm burning bridges... and whatever repercussions I would have in the future, I am ready for it.
.

I know marami akong mamimis lalo na ang mga kaibigan sa trabaho. Pero kailangan ko lang gawin 'to. Wish me luck for my next career. Hope it would be nice and niche. :)

For now, I will leave you this video I made earlier today. Here you can see my favorite pictures I took in Japan in 2009. And hope you'll like my "Hey There Delilah" version too. Thanks! :)

Frend! :) San ka na lilipat? Pero tama ka, when you are not happy and productive anymore that's the best time to move on. And ndi ka naman nagburn ng bridges kase nag paalam ka naman ng maayos e. The industry's small, malay mo dumating yung time bumalik ka ulet dun. Hehehehehe! Ok lang yun. Ganun talaga ang buhay. May dumadating, may umaalis. Parang relasyon lang. Hehe. Makati pa din new work mo?

Happiness said...

I wish you all the best Jag and hopefully you will find something that you really wanted or searching for. AKo gani I am still not sure what I want in life. I am happy with my job and my relationship with my family but I still feel that I want to do something which until now I can't figure out what is it...

Well my friend take care and enjoy...

Benh said...

Jag i think you made a good decision since yu are no longer productive and u are losing your interest in your job which I think would be the most important reason of staying in the company. I had people who also passes resignation letters and I don't bother as long as they know what they really want and where they are heading. Loosing people is not easy but we all have career aspirations and you just followed yours! Good luck on your new endeavors! :)

Change is sometimes a good thing I think. Good luck! :-)

J. Kulisap said...

O diba, nagcelebrate sila sa pagreresign mo, pinakain ka pa. Ibig sabihin non, happy sila dahil nagresign ka na. WAhahaha.

Kung matalino ka, at hinahabol ka ng ibang company, dapat choosy talaga.

Pero ang mahalaga, yong paglago hindi lamang ng bulsa pati na rin ng natutunan. :)

mr.nightcrawler said...

wow... for your boss to be able to say those things about you, offer you a promotion, and still wish you luck after resigning says a lot about your work ethic... or serious ass-kissing power. haha. kidding... i'm sure it's the work ethic thing.... i totally get your explanation and i don't think it's foolish at all. life is too short to spend it on things don't make us happy kaya ang amsasabi ko sayo... follow your heart's desire and ... i'm happy for you. cheers :P

ps. hoy parekoy... snob sa ym? iba na kasi mga rich! haha. kidding. ingat :P

kayedee said...

Pong said...

anong tawag kasi dun sa mga tree (flower) na nasa 1:00-1:01 parekoi? hmmmmm nakalimutan ko talaga eh di ba may japanese poem about dun

at least maganda ang ending ng pag-alis mo sa company niyo parekoi.

be blessed, nga pala may award ka sa akin sablog ko,

sikoletlover said...

ang swerte mo naman sa boss mo. ang bait. alam mo naman ang japanese when it comes to work/loyalty. yung japanese manager namin sa pinas sinumpa yata kaming mga nagresign because we had to transfer to other companies. pero yung boss ko na naka-base sa japan bid me goodluck.

tsugi no shigoto ni ganbatte kudasai! ^_^

I remember the time when I resigned sa isang bangko. Sumama yung loob ng head ng department namin.

Talagang hindi ako kinausap hanggang sa umalis na lang ako.

Nasa isip ko na lang noon na for me to progress, I need to burn some bridges if necessary.

Ang labo ko rin naman kasi eh. Engineer ako tapos nag-apply sa bangko.

MinnieRunner said...

I can relate, he he he.. Nagresign na rin ako sa company namin. I guess I'm already ripe, baka mabulok ako doon. Maganda rin ung counter offer nila, pero, I have to move on. Wish us both luck and God Bless!

Jag said...

Thank you guys for your wonderful comments!

goyo said...

nagresign ka na pala sa trabaho mo.. ang tagal ko na talagang hindi nakakadalaw dito.. goodluck sa bagong karera sir!
