Risk and Control Team

group pic(L-R: Joanne, Fitz, Bianca, Marian, Gem, Ms. Cecile, Sharon, Thet, Jen and Kathy. Photo taken by IJ)

For my last day, we had a group lunch at Wee Nam Kee. I’m glad they had time because it was such a bust work day for them.

I am LUCKY to be with their team. I definitely had a productive and fun summer with them!

Gem, IJ and Mil (Gem, IJ and Mil)

Of course IJ should have a photo here albeit he’s the one always behind the camera. He had been my supervisor for the whole internship period (though Ms. Cecile is the head of the team).  He’s the only guy in the team. I have learned a lot from him… like… uhmmm… A LOT! =] But seriously, he’s great! He’s very professional and he always explain my tasks very clearly. But not just him, the others as well.

There’s so much stuff to miss about them.

I wish one day I could go back (to work).



Its been a week

And I’m missing the workplace and most esp. the people.

the doorI miss accessing the door for myself and for those who got locked up.


(Sorry for the blurry mobile photo. I wasn’t able to take photos here.)

I miss the pantry. I miss having lunch here with Mil and Christian. Our crazy conversations. Sitting here and having chitchats with them makes my life seems simple, happy and crazy (in a good way). Good thing we’re just interns, no pressures at work! :)

I guess I won’t stop raving about my internship because it was very momentous.



I’ll miss citi

Yesterday was my last day as an intern. There were many surprises for the day. And one of it was this:

citi gift

Before I left the office, they gave me a little token to remind me of the most productive and fun summer I had. Besides the wrapped gift, they also gave me a printed picture of moi  taken by IJ, my supervisor (He’s inclined with photography and he’s damn good with it! =) at the lobby with the citi logo at the background. And at the back they’ve written me messages. That is sweet! I’m so glad to be part of the team for a month!

I enjoy my stint as an intern. I’ll miss it. For sure.



Christian if you’re reading this…

Camille cried when you left.

SERIOUSLY! Awww… Separation anxiety.

christian and milIt was right after this photo was taken.

Awww… I will miss the three of us too! And Christian, we know you will too! =))



last 2 days.

my desk at citi

I will certainly miss this desk.

And all my daily routines.

Shuttle to work.

10 mins walk from Ayala to CitiTower with my iPod on.

Elevator to 12th floor.

The sound of the door when you swipe your ID

That I hear every minute because I’m the one closest to the door.

Exchange of e-mails from my work-mates for my task/deliverables for the day

Crazy personal and DBPB e-mails from Mil

Chitchat with my desk-mate Sharon and my supervisor IJ

Chitchat with Mil and Christian every time we feel like to.

I’ll go up to their floor (14th) or they’ll go down at my floor (12th)

Lunch with Christian and Mil at the pantry/canteen

The whole Risk and Control department


Logging off of my computer. Changing my heels to flats.

15 minutes walk back to Ayala (to the garage beside standard chartered)

Shuttle back home with my iPod on.

But on Fridays, it’s kinda different

After Logging off my computer, I’m always hurrying up

To go to rockwell, for friday movies!

Hall Pass, Thor, Fast and Furious 5, Pirates of the Caribbean 4,  Kung Fu Panda 2

There are always great movies!

Going back…

I’ll miss a lot!

And most especially, I will miss dressing up. (“,)


Please don’t be too painful.

Sunday nights.

For four Sunday nights I’ll be lying on bed early contemplating for what to wear for the week- from top to bottom, where to eat lunch, what to do after work, and when is this going to end.

I didn’t know it would end so fast. No more worries about getting well dressed- corporate attire, wake-up calls, packed lunch, ride on shuttles going to Makati, good-morning-greetings from my one-month-colleagues, morning office lights, no more hi/hello/bye from kuya guard, hot mocha or chocolate drink from the vendo machine when we get drowsy or cold, no more good laughs, telling stories about their life and mine, no more lunch with jew at the office room or at the canteen, no more lunch with kins wearing polo barong, no more borrowing of folders from the folders room, no more logging in and out at the HR, no more encoding, no more CIS, no more stamping after encoding…


It’s another Sunday night… and I don’t have to be worried about what to wear for tomorrow.

Thank you Ma’am Dess, Sir Alex, Sir Chris, Sir Mon, Sir Jun and Sir Noli. I’ll miss the Audit group!! I’ve learned a lot.

xx, G
