Was out with some friends for a birthday dinner last night (for two people actually, two days apart). Funny to think that in the short time that I have been in Singapore, many of the close friends made in my first employment are no longer working at the same place. Some are off to other, similar, organisations, others stayed put when my work place went through a merger, while others have since changed lines of work completely, say, from engineering to patent law, or to financial institutions.
Perhaps this is a sign of our generation? With the apparent shrinking in size of the globe, there is more movement in the work force, and more links forged and broken?
However, I am grateful for the friends that I have.
ps. Today, heard that one of my former colleagues will set off for New York to pursue his MBA on Monday. All the best to him!
