Frequently asked questions
Since the new semester started, this writer met more colleagues often. On most occasions the opening question or one of the earlier questions to be answered would normally be on retirement. "When are you retiring?" or "Bila encik/tuan pencen?" sometimes "Pencen nanti nak buat apa?(What will you do after retirement?)" and many more to that effect. This writer then did not give a standard answer for all these question. It could be a sign of indecision or not yet decided to be exact. He is still keeping his options open, or rather as he used to say in many occasions before; we cross the bridge when we come to it. Whatever that may mean! In mind is the approach of the third phase in life after learning and working, although it will not be within this next six months it will be less than a year, to be exact less than nine months. Your sincerely has to make adjustments and plans for this new phase.
