Day 45 #HappyGoGrateful - Ivo Borisov
It was fasting month of Ramadhan 2008, I was stuck in Jakarta's after-work traffic. Hungry, and suudenly my cell phone rang, the country code was +359...
Yep, a call from Bulgaria. Right there, my phone interview for the job, and my very first live conversation with Ivo. A couple of months later, my very first meeting with Ivo in Orange's office in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Ivo is a super smart and witty guy, with a sarcastic sense of humor which I always love. I see him as a very critical person with a straight to the point attitude, which really complements all the characters in the office.
You're my "go-to" guy whenever I need to learn about how things work there. You always challenged me to be speak up, be critical, and create my own my of how I would like to be significant in the company. You supported me in radically changing my project there, and it was one hell of an experience to design and implement my own program.
But most importantly, you have personally supported and always available for me whenever I needed anything. You made sure I was comfortable and feel welcomed. You've been very open and honest about everything, and you made everything very chill and relaxing. And oh my god those crazy paper-works...hahaha. You made challenging work and its learning became so much fun.
And of course, all the kitchen conversations, and the lunch place downstairs, and god-knows how many internal jokes =)
I miss working and hanging out with you, my friend. You've made my time in Bulgaria a life-long highlights which I'll never forget, and I'm very grateful for that. It was filled with learning, laughters, unforgettable experiences, and amazing friendships. I thank you and I love you my man!
