  1. Retirement is a sad matter but I am happy that I don't have to follow the regular rigidity of life anymore. Waking up on time, arriving office on time, completing office works on time, etc. Life is good now. It was nice to receive the farewell retirement letter from the staffs. So many office memories just flashed back behind my very eyes.
