Lunch's On Me!
A dear friend came to our HQ to meet us for lunch today.
She was our old breakfast and lunch group before being transferred to another plant in the western part of the island about five months ago.
Today was her last day of work after twelve years of service with this company. A rather sad day for us and especially for her to leave the working life and grasp the prospect of retirement. She is sixty-two.
What should have been a farewell lunch treat by the group for her turned out to be the other way around. She insisted that she wanted to treat us instead... after much persuasion, we gave in.
We dined at Sakura Chinese-Thai Restaurant at Compass Point mall in Sengkang.
We had a good lunch and a good, though short chat with her, catching up and took some nice but grainy pictures with my iPhone...
Before long, we parted when we got back to the company grounds.
We already missed her presence once she was transferred. Now, I will personally miss her lively personality, her talks on her passion for baking, but most of all our chats on the phone most mornings since she started working there.
My dear friend is into her next phase of her life. I wish her all the best in her endeavors. May bright and cheery mornings be hers to start her every day, befitting her bubbly self.
We will meet again... this then, take care.
