Farewell TBG/Gushcloud

This e-mail is sent to all my colleagues in the morning.

Hey guys,

As you all know, today is my last day of working in TBG Interactive (aka Gushcloud) as developer. It had been a great 8 months here, I have learned a lot, grew a lot, had fun a lot, etc a lot. I had at least 16x more fun here than in my college. Dropping out and joining this company will always be one of the best decisions I have made in my life

First of all I would like to thank everyone that I have worked together with, we had fun together, and made apps that have delighted people’s life. Whether the app helps aspiring singers to be able to perform on stage, or get them some sweet supermarket vouchers so that they can celebrate Hari Raya, or app that helps kids in science discovery center to learn better through games and gifts, we have at least put a dent in lots of people’s life in tiny little ways. Oh yea, Gush Media, we managed scared the shit out of Nuffnang, well done everyone 😀

Secondly, I would like to thank the bosses, Siang, Vincent and Althea, especially Althea. If it wasn’t you offering me a chance to work in our company in that lift, I will still be a sad little kid that does nothing useful in his life. I am sorry if I let you guys down sometimes, or I infuriated you guys for some things that I did, but at this moment, I wish you guys have great success in the future. All the best.

Siang, you have been a great boss of bringing in apps deal for us, without you I will have nothing significant to build and learn from. I would like you to be more punctual in the future though. (The whole company needs to)

Vincent, I will remember HER principles and I will work on them! You have been a very inspiring figure, sometimes I Google (stalk) you to dig up your stories. Wish you success in your business ventures and happy in your marriage! (If you can get a wife, I confirm plus chop can)

Finally, I would like to thank my teammates, housemates as well, especially Hafi. Hafi has been a great mentor while I waddling my way through in real working environment. You have taught me to be more organized, to be more responsible and to be more diligent in the future. We have quarreled sometimes due to difference in opinions or point of views, but we managed to get together well after that without any hard feeling. Thanks for making me a better person.

Dew, you have been a dewchebag sometimes (and still is), but you have taught me a lot as well, you have showed me the very different way of how Singaporeans live their life.

Bel you have been the only ang mo Chinese in this company, you have shared stories of how you traveled the world, that really makes me want to go on and live a life of digital nomad in the future. That’s what I will do before I die, I will live my life to the fullest and make sure I have seen the world before moving on to the other side of it.

To other coworkers: Shing, Hanis, Kien, Charmaine, Diming, Alvin, Jeremy, Daniel, Eleena. Thank you guys for working with me and putting with me immaturity for my last working days.

To other ex-coworkers: Edwin, Andy, Anna, William, Yun Sin, Joyce (now Fixx), Henner (now Fixx), <?= $those_who_i_have_forgotten ?>. Thank you all for having a great time together as well.

To GTF talk peeps: Colm, Reza, Torin, Darren, Henner etc. Thanks for sharing tech knowledge together sometimes, hope I am still in the Skype group so we can keep on continuing the sharing culture.

I can’t thank you guys enough for that.

My housemates
