I was born in a small family with only my dad, my mom, my elder sister and me in a family. During my younger days, I have always felt myself lonely. My mom & dad will be working, while my elder sister who was 7 years older than me accompanied me till I finished my primary. She left to Singapore when I started to venture into secondary school. That was when I lost my 1st companionship in my life.
I felt in love with toy dog when I visited my aunt in Bidor that was when I requested my parents to buy me a dog from my aunt as she was a dog breeder. I finally have my companion again. I love my dog, Randy & FiFi very much. Every day, they will be there to say goodbye by wagging their tails when I go to school, they will be the one who greeted me when I return from school. We have lots of fun time together, playing with each other, chasing with each other and even sleeping with each other. They were my companion during my secondary school time. Both of them died of old age after accompanied me throughout my secondary school time. I was heartbroken when they died, that I built them a grave in my dad’s factory compound and prayed to them weekly with joss stick just like praying to the dead. To many people, they might think that I am an odd person but as for me, I think that this is the only way to show them that I love them & it’s hard to accept that they were no longer with me.
As time goes by, I started my college and Uni life. After I graduated, I found myself lucky to work with Julie’s. Starting my courier as Production executive, then being transferred to Purchasing Department to Packing Department to I.T Department, and now to Sales Department, I could said that I have been blessed by my mentors who has given me the opportunities to learn from all the departments that have different roles in nature. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all my mentors that has guided me throughout my life, who has given me the opportunity to excel in my work, who has provide me the inspiration to strive and even motivate me and accompanied me till now. Although some may have left while some still remain but from the bottom of my heart, I would like to say a big thank you to all my mentors. You spirit that has helped me to become a better person in my life will always be treasure.
Being selected by the company as being one of the presenter to present Julie’s culture and vision to the customers, I am truly touched when the company launched “The best of you” program. Although, I was a bit skeptical at first on how this tag line being related to a product. But after being explained by the branding team and also having myself being appointed to present the whole movement to our customers, I started to have more understanding about the whole movement and how this reverse emotion strategy can really touch our hearts. Among all the 4 Video’s that I have watched, the one that touched me the most was the “Max Boy” video. This video reminded me about my son “Lai En”. How lucky am I to have him by my side as a companion. He has let me recalled back about my childhood memories that I am not able to enjoy during the younger days and I would try my very best to provide to him my attention so that he will not feel lonely in his life. Seems like both of us were just similar to each other. We enjoy playing games, enjoy Gunpla modelling, enjoy animation, enjoy food, enjoy going to park for a walk, enjoy reading…etc. I would have spent most my time with him when I am not on overseas assignment. While I was on overseas assignment, I would have think of him always by communicating with my wife on my son condition while my son would have ask my wife when will I be coming back home.
Lai En has been the greatest gift in my life and he has inspired me that life will never be lonely again. As for me, I will try my best to provide him the best childhood in his life.
This is the best of him and this is the best of me. Who is the best of you?
Last note, always treasure life cause there will always be someone who comes to your life that touch you and you will never be lonely again.
