Genuinely Happy @ Shriro Malaysia

It's a peaceful Saturday afternoon, i have just finished watching two episode of a new Korean Drama "While you were sleeping" while waiting for my next program; helping out with the kids' horror run organized yearly by RKC.

Just felt the need to type this down because i felt that i made the right decision to leave Mediacliq back in April. I was very very confused and frustrated when i made the decision to leave medical and being offered a new job with Shriro Malaysia, a trading house. I was basically walking blindly into something which i had 0 knowledge on.

When i left Nuffnang for Mediacliq, i was very upset as well because i know that i would be leaving behind a lot of great friends and fun, but i had to look at a bigger picture in the media industry. I wanted to know more of the digital ad industry, because digital is definitely the new way to roll for marketers. But that 5 months of being with mediacliq made me changed my mind, partially because of the ppl in the company and partially because i hated the work hours and how dealing with clients' was not an easy task. I was very unhappy being with Mediacliq for a solid 3 months. My breathing space was very limited and i felt constraint. Putting all that aside....

I am glad that i took up the job Shelley offered me, the beginning was tough but i was genuinely happy even though i had very very old colleagues, colleagues whom are my parents age and whom working ways are very conventional. But, i had the privilege to grow at my pace and i felt that my boss trust me for what i am doing, she isn't constantly checking in and questioning me. She doesn't makes me feel hopeless by constantly saying, she is expecting more than what i am already doing. Without all this crazy pressure, i naturally felt the need to do more. I want to do more and be better. 

The ultimately reason was, within 2 months of working with Shriro, my boss told me that i might have the chance to go off to Germany and Italy for work purposes. I have always dreamt of doing a work trip overseas, doesn't matter if its Singapore or Thailand but i wanted to experience what was it like going out of the country to work and i scored big time because the first time overseas happens to be in Europe. I can't express how excited and happy i was!

Just wanted to pin this down to express how thankful and happy i am to have met this opportunity.

Can't wait to be on my flight to Cologne this Thursday, 5th Oct 2017. To meet more people, to have more fun and to learn more.

Can't wait to see the Colosseum, Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, St Peter Basilica and most of all, so excited for the food, wine, beer and visiting Spoleto, a small town in Italy to see how Olive Oil is made. :)
