It's official. I submitted my resignation letter to the HR folks at JURONG International after nearly 4 years of employment.
So, what's next? A new and fresh position with a Dutch company in Jakarta for a few years. It's very exciting to be a part of a Foreign Direct Investment in my own beloved country. Since 2002, I promised myself that I won't take away another person's job in Indonesia, but instead, I should be instrumental in creating new jobs for my fellow citizens.
My Chief Family Officer (CFO) Rani and the kids are excited about this as well (especiallly Noe who has been missing his Nenek and Eyang Putri). It's not an easy decision to relocate to Jakarta but I am sure it's worth all the effort.
Mind you, I have not lived in Indonesia since 1992 (yes, 15 years... that's nearly half of my life!) so some major mental adjustments must be made well in advance.
The only time I have ever worked in Indonesia was during my US-summer holiday job at Club Med, Bali. But, I won't tell you the details of my experience working as a G.O. Too risqué :)
