It’s been almost a month since my last post. So… what has happened in between?
For a start, I’ve since resigned and taken up a new role. I tendered my resignation on the first week of November. Funny thing was that I received the new job offer on Toshi’s last day at work (it was a Friday) and I threw in my letter on the following Monday. It might be quite a shock for my bosses because, well, one of my colleague had just left and here I was, tendering my resignation technically right after that. I felt quite bad but I had to resign quickly. Why? Because my new company wanted me to start on the November 30th! My new boss definitely understood that I wouldn’t have had finished my one-month notice period by then, so they kindly pushed the starting date back to December 7th.
I’m still doing account management (my previous role was in project / account management) in a tech start-up (my former boss joked that I seem to love start-ups so much hahaha). The difference is, of course, in the product that the company builds and it’s an Australian company.
My last day of work was on the first Friday of December and I flew to the new company’s headquarter in Sydney in the wee hours of Monday. So technically I had no break whatsoever during the transition (the same thing happened to me before I joined Circus. My last day at eYeka was on a Friday and I started at Circus the following Monday).
So the next thing that happened, I was in Sydney for (almost) a week.
For work training, that is, but I did go out every evening after work. Hahaha! It didn’t help that I have a family friend who lives in Sydney and they were very excited to bring me out since it was my first time in the city. I shall write a separate post just for this. All I had to say is that, Sydney is wonderful! I truly enjoyed my time there, both the work and the leisure.
And the most exciting happening this month is definitely Christmas!!! My most favourite festive season ever! 😀 I will be writing my report on Christmas decoration at Orchard Road soon as well.
2015 has gone by in a flash and I am very thankful of everything that has happened. I believe 2016 will be an even more awesome year! 😀
