Been meaning to pen this down cos it really touched my heart…. a couple of weeks back, i was having a TERRIBLE week at work. Everything that could go wrong was going wrong. One day that week…when I was about to walk out of the office, a colleague of mine asked me to come by her desk.
She opened her drawer and handed me a takashimaya voucher. Here’s how the conversation went:
Colleague: Something small for your new home…
Ness: Errrr…the house isn’t even ready yet…and I have not sent out invites!!! Why are you giving me this now?
Colleague: It is now that you will need the cash more. By the time housewarming comes round…you would have sorted out a lot of the big ticket items. Something small now to help ease the load.
Ness: Thank you (too choked up by her thoughtfulness to actually say anything more)
The kind colleague gave me $100 worth of Takashimaya vouchers! So so thoughtful of her…very touched. She has pretty much sponsored our SodaStream!! Woohoo!!
