Uncle8888 was busy looking out for stalls that have queue and see what are they selling  at food centre; and suddenly he heard someone calling out loud his IC Name.

Walau!

Nowadays; he often hears people calling him Uncle, Jacob or Uncle Jacob; but calling by IC name is getting uncommon.

Uncle8888 has even changed his Whatapps profile to replace his previous working name.

He went over to chat with his two ex-ex-ex colleagues who are about his same age group in their 60s. Later; he came to know both of them have been retrenched as their department was outsourced. It was their last week with the company!

No wonder, it was already 1.43 pm and they were still at food court lim kopi and chatting…
