As usual, Uncle8888 went for his “free” coffee black and before he could sit down. Someone came over to his seat and tapped his shoulder and called out his IC name!
One ex-colleague whom he has never met for more than 20 years.
He was retrenched at 43 during AFC 1998. After two years of looking for job, he finally landed Project Manager job with MOE; but he has to work long hours; and sometime has to burn weekends too.
After one and an half year; he gave up after thinking why he has to work so hard for others (bosses?) and decided to become full time property agent working hard for himself.
Then came SARS; property market crashed big time!
He bought two properties at very good price for himself instead of finding clients to buy them …
