Of the numerous technicians, tech support specialists and programmers who have been a part of the company I work for, four are now in Dubai and seven are in Singapore. Greener pastures, they were looking for, either because they needed greener pastures, or the pastures needed them to feed. I don’t really understand why greener pastures never appealed to me that much. Maybe it’s because I’d always been in the greener pasture to begin with.
I’d like to call it optimism, a stick-to-it-ness that fosters loyalty and and almost family-like comfort even when you’re at work. So here I will stay, generating my end of month financial reporting, trying to think up more ways that I can sell our services to more people. I sit here, silently thankful that I don’t have to be the one who needs to go away, that I am one of the few who are actually happy that we are staying.
Besides it’s so much easier to sit and bash the government when you’re here in the middle of it all.
