First Day

First day at work was…. weird.

Weird because I didn’t have the usual company of my colleagues who makes me feel very comfortable at work.
Weird because I am going to perform eye tests in a different environment.
Weird because I am totally unfamiliar with products that’s available and the discount that is allowed to be given.

Guess I can’t complain much since I was the one who wanted to work elsewhere.

When my ex-colleague gave me a call after work to just check out how I was coping on the first day, I teared. ): I really miss my colleagues a lot, and I never forsee myself to be reacting this way. ): I really don’t like this feeling of unfamiliarity, and I hope it goes away really soon.

Anyway, I am posted to Optical 88 located at Wisma Atria, so feel free to drop by and visit me! (: In fact, I am available to go on lunch and dinner dates, so feel free to ask me out for a meal at nearby vicinities! (:

One positive thing about working in Wisma Atria: It only takes me 30 minutes to reach work (including walking and waiting time)

One negative thing about working in Wisma Atria: I have to spend a hell lot of money of food right now. Everything is so expensive! Does anyone know of where I can get damn cheap food in town, like maybe <$4?!

Now I need the Ministry of Health to have my license approved as soon as possible, or else I will be receiving terrible mudhole pay for the whole of the first month! I even had so much trouble with applying on the website. /: The government sector better be efficient, because time is money to us now. And I am talking about a super huge difference by the way, so please pardon my stinginess (and I am not the only one who feels this way).

(P.S: Anyone’s free to go on a shopping date with me next week on my off day? I seriously need to replace my torn and tattered bag and get a new pair of comfy shoes. My flats are making my sole hurt already!)
