I went for a job screening in Seremban last February where I met two good old friends of mine, Pen & Dock. After that job screening, I went for an interview for that particular job in Kelana Jaya, where I met another friend, Dato' Cemat. That was the time when I stucked in a traffic jam for 3hrs & 45 mins. (read the post here).
After both screening & interview, I went for another job interview here in Kuantan. One of the hardest interview I ever had in my 37 years of life... hehehe. After the interview, I was given a task and submit it to them in two days time. Semua2 dah settle, and, I do have positive mind that I will get the job.
Alhamdulillah, with help from Pen & Cemat, dan juga berkat doa keluarga dan kawan2, and you readers, I received the Letter of Appointment for the first job on which I need to report for duty on 3rd of May 2010. But then, it's not going to be in Seremban, they have decided to send me to Melaka. The reason they gave to me was their branch in Melaka is a small branch and they need my experience to boost up their operation there. Also, my talent may shine brighter there compared to Seremban. Hmmm... Melaka pun OK, adik bongsu aku ada kat Melaka.
I've talk to my boss, and he's willing to let me go. And I promise him to come over once in a while to help this company in any arrears needed. Nak bagitau baik tak baik bos aku ni, he's giving the company's car I'm using now to me, dgn syarat aku sambung jer monthly installment sampai habis. It's so fair since I'm the one using the car. Once the car hp is fully paid, he will change the car ownership into my name. Therefore, I don't have to seek for new loan with higher interest rate for the car. Buying a new car is not an option for me for the time being due to my financial status... Ahaks... Where else can you find a rare good hearted human being like this man??
I'm happy for the offer, though a bit lower than what I requested, but it's still a good offer. I was so happy when i got a call from their HR department saying that I got that job. Rasa mcm nak start hari tu jugak. Giler meghoyan ke apa... hahaha...
But, deep inside, I am still hoping that I get the job in Kuantan. I'm still waiting for the result. Apart from a better offer in terms of money, post and career path, another biggest point is, I will still be in Kuantan, where my children go to school everyday, where my father drives his taxi and most importantly, where my hearts is. This is my hometown, where I grew up. There's a lot of memories here, good and bad, ups and downs.
Not that I don't like to be in another place, I've been travelling all over Malaysia except for Sarawak. It's just that moving away is not an easy option like it use to be. I have two kids now, both under my custody. Moving away means they have to adapt to new place, new environment, new school, new teachers, new friends, and I really don't have any idea if they're ready for all that. When I told them about the job offer, they say, they don't mind moving. Wherever I need to be. But facing new environment is not as easy as saying it. Guess it's a worth situation to gamble on.
Well, whatever decision I'll come to later on, I wish to thank Pen & Cemat for this oppurtunity. I remember, my very first job after I graduate years ago, Pen jugak yg tolong aku. Also to all frens who prayed for me and my family well beings. Also to my family. All this happen sbb rahmat Allah, berkat doa kalian semua. Harap teruskan doakan utk aku dan keluarga.
