Received an e-mail from a Sdara, Hamidin asking me whether I have made the final decision on early retirement.
Well Hamidin or just Hamjud as he is more well known as among us, it is as good as anyone's guess at the moment.
When the stress and strain of work is at its peak, I feel like just calling it a day even at 55!
But when I look at my youngest daughter and my current financial situation, well why not continue for another two more years? Who want to give RMxxxx that I am receiving monthly now?
Rationally speaking it will be best to continue...many will say that...but looking deep inside me, I feel that I have to go. There is something more important than continuing what I have been doing for the past 26 years.
Ismail Ahmad, another childhood friend, I heard has gone for a preparatory course.
Well Hamjud, I don't have to be in a hurry to decide. I have got a few more months to go before I have to decide.
Come to think of it seriously, it would be better to wait until I have gained 30 years of service...but will the waiting be worth it?
