So far this year I haven't been lucky enough to be under the cupid's arrow but I think good things would come my way soon. Love find you when you least expect it. However, I am kind of sceptical getting into a relationship again. Probably the past relationship made me wiser, it made me think with rationality rather than emotionally. I wouldn't want to waste time and energy in a relationship but rather to spend more time building my career so that I can submerge in my indulgences. If the right one comes along, it'll be good but if he doesn't, life still goes on. I think mom is quite worried about that...
Talking about the career, this year has indeed ended on a good note for me. I resigned from Fidani middle of this year without having to think of where I would want to go next. Who knows that the opportunity to work with one of the biggest chocolate brands in the world came knocking on my door. The best part was - it was an international travel retail position, which is something that I wanted to enter into. I was willing to sacrifice for the job because I was told that I had to be based in Singapore initially and the salary wasn't that attractive. However, in the end, I was allowed to stay back in the country and the salary was better than the previous company. Nothing beats doing a job everyday that is enjoying and satisfying.
This is definitely a good debt. For the first time in my life, I actually signed a Sales & Purchase agreement for the biggest purchase ever in my life - a house. I am now officially a member of the property owners association. haha.... It's also the begining of a debt that I have to live with for the next 25 years once I start servicing the loan unless I hit a lottery jackpot. The funniest thing is that this house is just one door away from where I am living now so Mom can take care of my house also! For next year, I plan to be further in debt because I need to change my car... *sigh* I need an accountant to manage my finances! It looked like I'm living in budget deficit.
There have been lots of traveling done this year. Early this year, I went to Siem Reap with my ex bf, surprisingly even after we have broken up in 2009. I've been going to Langkawi, Bangkok and Singapore on a routine. Recently, I have also just came back from a global meeting in London, then a visit to the office in Veghel, and spent some time in Amsterdam and also Paris. It was an experience to travel during winter with all the snow and blizzard that caused so much travel disruptions. Even the year has not ended, I have just confirmed my travel plans for Jan & Feb 2011. I know it's going to be a crazy year ahead!
I am really getting tired of a year full of continuous petty politics by our politicians. The last GE has been 3 years ago but there were just too many bi-elections which results in the never ending campaigning. I think Malaysians are also tired from the perpetual political one-upmanship where politicians are mostly about individual agendas and petty partisan politics. This made me sick! So what if we are given a day of public holiday for winning a football match? What we want is stability and the continuous prosperity the country enjoys to ensure a better future for all citizens.
Let's clank our glasses for 2011.
Cheers and Happy New Year!
