Wrapping up December 2013

2013 has been one exciting year for me, and like everyone else, it's time to wrap up the year and give our thanks to a great year.

I started 2013 with a new job with a new industry, never thought I would take the leap to leave my previous company as I was very much comfortable there. External factors contributed to my leaving, something which I've never revealed in my blog (and only a handful ex-colleagues know the real reason), and I won't bore anyone with the details which led to my parting of Integricity Interactive (now known as VLT KL).

I quit my job, took a whole month of to do stuff for myself, and found a new job to start 2013. I told myself 2013 will be a brand new year for me, with a new job, make new friends, experience and learn new things. I will have a blank canvas, and it's up to me how I want to paint that canvas. I figured starting the new year with a new job will also help lift my spirits up. And it did :)

It's been an exciting and wonderful 2013, and despite starting the year which much sadness and confusion, everything fell into place eventually, and emotionally I'm in a much better place. I'm a lot happier today than I was one year ago, and for this I have to thank my supportive husband and wonderful new friends at BFM 89.9. The crazy lovable folks whom I work with from Mondays to Fridays are the ones who have made me turn my life around and get out of depression. I have learnt a lot from them, and everyday I continue to learn from them.

The year 2013 was also a year I've had some significant "first time" experiences. Hubby and I made our journey to Beijing, China in May. And then in November, we made our way to Japan, a country which we've always wanted to go to. A few weeks later, I went to Phuket on a company trip. So this year alone, I went to 3 countries, a first time for me!

I also had the experience to go dragon boating, had the chance to eat a lot of cakes and cupcakes at work, learn new skills and knowledge, and hug a tiger!

It's been a fantastic year for me, one which I feel very blessed and grateful for. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone (yes, to you too!), and here's to a wonderful 2014!
