I’ve decided to unlock my blog after a year. I didn’t just lock it for fun, I made a huge mistake and completely wiped out my blog while I was experimenting with some blog features. So here is my sad blog, with at least 4 years of blog entries missing. I managed to save the posts through my cached files but I haven’t had time to update it back in this space.

I’m turning 30 in a month’s time and I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on my life, the people I’ve met, the opportunities I’ve had and the heartbreaking experiences that made me who I am.

If I had to pick some moments to write about…

Well, for starters…I’m now married.

BOOMS. Yeap. this once silly and innocent 16-year-old is now married. I had an amazing year planning for the wedding (and the marriage), no I did not become a bridezilla (too often) and yes I married a great guy. He’s awesome (albeit naggy).

My grandmother is diagnosed with CIDP (Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy) 

The family went through a few months of in and outs to University Malaya and we are so thankful to God that granny is now stabilized. She has lost her mobility (we pray that this is temporary) but she so positive and full of faith. I’m inspired by her every day and she’s the pillar of my life.

On Werk.

I guess I didn’t even have the chance to share about my 2-year stint in Tune Protect, running digital marketing. Being an idealist, I joined with plenty of hopes and plans to charge into the industry with my team of comrades and create change. Change in the minds and habits of consumers. Change in industry standards. Change in running an almost dinosaur organization like a startup. I guess the only change I had coming my way was a refreshed mind to accept differences in opinion and standards other than my own. It was a great experience nevertheless and I had a good time learning.

Fast forward a couple of months, I’m now based in the lion city. Still working my ass off (when am I not?) and wondering when am I going to retire. I’m back at the bottom of the food chain (the agencies and vendors) where we create awesome stuff for clients. The good thing is, I truly enjoy my work. Not necessarily the day-to-day operations, but the belief that I’m working towards something bigger. I also enjoy meeting and helping people while soaking up on all industry knowledge and tricks to navigate the industry. The bad side of things…my hours are back to my early years of working. Things may not always go in favor of me but hey, I believe I’m setting out on this next challenge in my career to pick up something new.

I thank God for getting me through the good times, the bad times and the great moments. I regret only that I did not document my memories as often as I have when I was younger.

Wish me luck when I’m 30!
