We received a well-worded poem from her yesterday and was very much touched by it and honoured to have read it. Thank you Bev for all those kind words. I sincerely feel that writing might be your true call :)
Today we threw a farewell makan-makan for our lovely Bev, who will be leaving us officially today. Despite some pujukan from our bosses, seems that she didn't have a change of heart.
So sorry that you're leaving. Forget us not and we wish you the very best in your future undertakings.
Have a safe and pleasant trip back home and I hope it's not too early to wish you, Happy Chinese New Year.
A goodbye isn't painful, a friend of mine once said. Unless you're never going to say hello again. As William Shakespeare once said, "Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again".
