It's morning. My table was empty 'cos I already got everything nicely packed into the boxes last Thursday! So, only my 'portable' stuff here. Indeed, the workers came in the morning and started dismantling the tables for the next day's moving. Made my last call to the vendor and packed my things.
We were among the 1st immigrants to arrive at the holding site. There were 4 of us... KH, Jo and Lam. Though we left the boxes for the movers to ferry over, each of us carried a few bags with us. Thanks to KH, we came direct after lunch. For a moment, it's like one of those trips that we finally reached the destination and about to check in to our hotel room! hahaha.... Unfortunately, the lobby (the office) was locked, and we ended up in the canteen - which we settled down pretty quickly, happily charging and booting up our computers!
Everything has been rather disorientated... anyway, thanks to HK, who advised us to find one of those air-conditioned rooms where we were there for the rest of the day. Oh yes, the Multi-purpose room was the home for 6 of us! (Richie & CY joined us after lunch)
6 May 2009 (Tuesday)
It's THE day... when we officially started work at the holding site. In fact, our furniture were still at the office in NP. Anyway, there were already tables and chairs in the staff room and of course, it looked bare.
Set up the workstation at the corner near where I would be sitting. It's a pretty quiet corner... hahaha... when some colleagues suggested sitting away from this area, anticipating the noise. Ironically, it's the quietest area this morning.
Towards the later part of the morning, we welcome the very first load of goodies :D and one by one, our goodies arrived. Yes, my 2 boxes arrived safely! Nevertheless, no time to unpack 'cos have to go to LSL for meeting.
Well, well, well... though the place is bare, though things seem older... nevertheless, it's really where home is, for the school :D Yes, it's the place we call HOME in the next 2 years.
