The Page Turns &
An Exciting New Chapter Begins
For teaching me
That there really are evil people out there in the world
That words are words and sometimes, every single word can be a lie
That forging letters using the name 'Mark' doesn't get you into jail
That someone i considered a confidante and respected superior could stab us all in the back over and over again without us knowing it...
Right after the shit hit the fan,
Everyone, including my own boyfriend, came up to me and sympathetically said
"I Told You So."
Yes they all did, but i was giving one the benefit of the doubt
I don't regret it because it's my principle (trying not to fall prey to rumourmongers) and meeting someone like you won't change it
The media industry is small and i have no doubt you'll have what's coming to you one day.
Today is my last day with FACES as a full-timer
So everyone can stop asking me "I thought you stopped already?"
Obviously there is a month's notice when i give in resignation letter right
I was clearing away my desk:
My Little Pony shelf stickers
Photos of Smellie, BalaTania and RinaThePowerpuff
Kitschy Dick & Jane calendar
PrincessAnna looked on forlornly
"Nah," i handed her some leftover BacardiLimon that was sitting on my desk, "For you to remember me by and drink when you miss me."
Our memorable moments:
Partying with you for the first time in Penang 🙂
Along with KennyT, LynnzterSillyWabbit, BadBoyBen, Ern, Frostie, etc.
That was seriously one of the wildest nights la 😉
The time it was raining heavily and we wanted to ta pau food from the back lane
We both wore makeshift coats and hats made from waterproof paper used to wrap the magazines for delivery
We were doubled-over laughing so hard, we almost didn't notice
The workers at the neighbouring offices laughing at us as well
But it's a bit difficult not to notice great hoots of laughter when they're all looking in our direction...
I was bored and wanted to walk to the grocery shop behind the office to buy drinks
"Do you want juice? Or Vitagen? I'm going to the shop."
So off i went.
My eyes wandered to the other products in the refrigerator
Paid i did, and pottered back to the office
PrincessAnna took her stuff
"Joyce. You were supposed to buy me Vitagen... and you bought me beer." -_-'
I laughed back happily, "The beer was just next to it! Mag just went out to print! Nothing to do wut... so celebrate la!"
Both of us:
I will miss sitting next to you everyday
But you know i'll still pop by with 'drinks' now and then
I will still be freelancing for FACES as well as other publications
So if you need some photography or writing done
You know who to contact 😉
