Tebby & I have been married for almost seven years. That long that I can sense his presence in a crowd of mingling public. Yet still I fumble with my steps whenever I walk towards him as he stares from afar.
No, it's not our anniversary. Our 7th will be on 31st August 2007 - two months from now.
When I first got to know him, we were both Grade-20 executives, all eager to venture into the so-called career-world. We've been through like 3 major re-structurings since then, the last one being the recent receipt of appointment letter. Or shall I say, placement letter. I got mine 2 days ago. Tebby, my dear Tebby got his yesterday, along with the good news.
No, I am not pregnant.
He is promoted to next level. The news was hanging mid-air since like a few weeks ago but we did not put any hope as anything could have happened in-between. Congrats dear. You have proof your worth. He was even head-hunted a few times before from outside. His recipe (where working is concerned) - work sincerely in the name of God and always have positive 'nawaitu'.
To come to that, it was not a bed of roses all the time. He was affected, as well as me and the children. There were times he came back just for a shower. There were times of working over weekends. There were times of long-faces. There were many-many times of working late night. But you know what they say... behind ever successful man, there's always a woman (masuk bakul angkat sendiri). In my case, not only I am behind him, I am all over him he he.
Yang, congrats again. I knew you could do it. I am sure the kids are very proud of their abah as well.
