    I haven’t been blogging for some time because there are some things that are going on in my life which makes me sad. Well, not angry but sad. My job is impacted and I have lost my job. To be exact, the entire Southeast Asia offices at Uber are impacted. Uber has decided to move out of the Southeast Asia market and sold its business to Grab. Technically speaking, I will be joining Grab but nothing is certain at the moment. No one know what is going to happen the next day and everyone is on paid garden leave. Yes, I am still on Uber payroll and still get to enjoy the benefits as an Uber employee.

    I have not mentioned in my blog before that I am working at Uber. Yes, I left Autodesk in January this year to join Uber. Yes, I went to San Francisco recently as part of Uberversity and my security new hire training sessions. I would love to continue to work at Uber but things have changed. Sometimes life don’t go the way you have planned and you just got to learn to accept it.

    I’m sad but I have learn to accept it and see how things go.

    Ironically speaking, I am typing this while on UberFlash.

      awww, i’m sorry to hear about this but if they’re transferring to Grab will they not hire the people from Uber?
      We recently receive this news too and got an email. Most of my workmates use Uber most than Grab and they’re sad too with the sudden change :(
      Hang in there Sakura-chan~!
