How I wonder what you are
If you want to cry or sigh
Don't forget to just drop by
If you ever stray afar
there is always Angelstar :)

One word...and it all came back...

When I was reading my email from my good friend/buddy, my attention held at a familiar word which I used to (or most of us used to) use back then when I was working there.

It's just a simple word, 'placeholder' and it brought so much memories back to me again

A place where I used to feel that I belong so much
A place where I loved to go to every morning; no matter how crazy the early hours are
A place where your laptops are like your cellphones and are mobile everywhere you go; to meetings to another office building, etc
A place where communication takes place through the laptops (i mean, humans still talk, of course)

Where I used to stare so intently at my screen for more than 12 hours (ya, I am crazy!)
Where I used to feel so cold and curse silently at how they treat our office like a mortuary
(But I enjoyed choosing my sweaters to go with my attires each day, and my shoes, watches, bag and hankies)
Where I used to enjoy sitting in a big meeting room and IM friends (LOL, but I am still paying attention to the meeting, okayyyy)
Where I used to look forward to the quarterly update meeting to sit in a big auditorium....(That's so fun lar!) and yet, eyes and fingers still on the keyboard..yeah, we bring laptops into that meeting too
Where I only wear comfortable outfits to work; and dress casually every day like it's Friday! (jeans and sneakers)

I missed that place...and there's so much more words which can bring much more memories and yet I am afraid that I am going to forget them soon...huhuhu.....

Placeholder, placeholder
Block your calendar
