My Year in 2009 (part 1)

Since most sites are doing their year end countdowns, I thought it was high time I join in on the fun and create my very own version.

This year was full of unbelievably fabulous memories and fortunately not so many cringe worthy lows. Here are some highlights for each month of 2009.


...for me was all about the 2009 Nestle Kick Off.  Our batch was in charge of organizing the event and as you can imagine, with more than a thousand++ in attendance, a mixture of chaos, laughter, tears, and pride ensued.  It was 5 days of sleep deprivation, heartbreaking excitement and a whole lot more that made all of us that much more closer.  It was our graduation of sorts.  I will forever have the fondest memory of the last week of January 2009.  Oh did I mention, Kick Off stress week made me lose 5 pounds! San ka pa!


We have been in 6 countries together;  Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong (ok, that's not really a country but heck) and Macau (yes I know, still not a country.  Should brush up on my geography), for 2009 February, favorite travel buddy Jeanie and I decided to make it into seven with our little trip to Hawaii.  My US visa was about to expire without so much as a dent to it that I am grateful Jeanie was available for a little R&R that time.  To date, Hawaii and all our little and not so little adventures and misadventures still ranks a top my most outlandishly fabulous out of town/country trips.


Hmm nothing really eventful happened this month, me thinks. Oh yeah, except for that one tiny incident on March 2 that was called as my official last day in Nestle.  After almost 2 years working as a slave CMT in one of the coolest, family friendly corporations, I tendered my resignation just before my trip to Hawaii.  In all honesty this was somewhat an unexpected move even for impulsive lil ol blogger me.  Well, the resigning wasn't but the timing was.  I was initially planning on quitting after the November wedding to start something of my own.  However, by some twist of fate (that's what I'm calling it and I am sticking by it hee) I got to go inside the big room and handed my two weeks noticed 9 months earlier.


... Was the start of our house renovation. Then-fiance and I searched high and low for the perfect floor tiles, synthetic granite countertops, wenge laminates and many more construction terms that I wouldn't bore you guys with.  I loved the whole process so much that for a moment I even considered going back to school and taking up interior design (it's still there, that crazy idea, but for now that plan has momentarily been shoved way way back.)  Blood, sweat and tears went into this and so now that everything is in order, I sometimes find myself just staring at our house in appreciation.
