And so I am taking my leave from the protem committee of ABS. I have gleaned many life lessons from this episode, which I will pen here in the near future to share with all.
Indeed it had been an eye opener that cannot be bought.
What is my reason for stepping down? Is it the backlash from some bloggers? Is it due to misunderstandings? Is it the heat that got to me?
I can say with confidence that it is not. I had already said so earlier on - I will step down after I had done what I should do as this is a protem committee after all. And so I am doing so to spend more time with my family and new work projects.
It has been a good journey - besides the valuable knowledge and experience, looking at things from different perspectives, conversations with different people, it’s also a litmus test of genuine friendship and respect.
Having said that, I hope readers can understand that I will not answer any official questions on behalf of ABS and to respect that it is an issue of honor and integrity not to reveal internal communications.
I would also like to take this chance to thank everyone for being so patient and for the great conversations we had in the earlier post.

Last than a week and the protem committee lost 3 key members - vice-president, events director and IT officer. Very united indeed. "
