A journey to remember

What Happens After Working for Two Years at Lazada?

Posted on: April 21, 2016

DSCF4893Have I ever told you that 2014 was one of the best years in my life and it was only because I joined Lazada back in April 21, 2014? Initially I thought, “Oh, well… Maybe it’s just a newbie’s euphoria.”

One year later, I wrote this blog… I was still happy with my job at my first anniversary with Lazada. And then today, another one year after that, apparently, I’m still happy for being a part of this company 🙂

Yes, there were the ups and downs. There were some times where it felt like I was in between of giving up or seeing how many more I could take. Yet somehow at the end of the day, I had so many good times in this Company that made me whisper deep inside my heart, “Thank God for the life you give to me!”

My team is getting bigger and bigger in the past two years. The Company is growing so fast and it has brought some more new people to my team. From a stranger in their interview days to a ‘partner in crime’. My partner to talk and laugh so many random things in life. And then last month, for the first time ever, I went traveling with my teammates at work. It was really a memorable trip for so many good and bad reasons 😉

Also in this past two years, I had not one but five new bosses at work! I needed to adapt with a new boss over and over again. But do you know? It was actually so much fun! It was like, “Oh, well… New boss means a new challenge for me to prove how good I am!” Hehehehe. But seriously, I’m just glad that no matter whom I work with, I always manage to make a good relationship with them. Not to mention there’s always something I can learn from each and everyone of them.

I’m also proud of being a part of Lazada’s success story. From having active sellers less than 100 to thousands of sellers in a week! From, “Lazada what?” to “Ah, you’re working in Lazada!” From Zahir to SAP. From a team of two to a team of twenty! I’m so proud that we’ve been making this far and I believe we will only get bigger and stronger than before! It feels like I’m a proud mother in this company, hehehehe.

However, just like many other people in all other companies on earth, I will never know how many longer I will stay. One thing that I know for sure is that Lazada will always be a company to remember. In this company, I’ve come to learn to embrace every moment I have even if it’s only the tiniest one. I’ve learned a lot and I believe I’ve grown gracefully with this company. The hard times, the good times, the love stories and the heartbreaks will always be my kind of fairy tale to tell. It’s only two years but if feels like 20 years already, hehehehe.

Hence again, thank God for taking me here. For the lessons I’ve learned. For the joy and sorrow. For the friends and frenemies. And of course, for all promotions I’ve earned in the past two years!

The third year, bring it on!

Life took me to many unimaginable people. The super kind, the selfless, the brave men, and of course, the mean and rude people, cheaters, liars, hypocrites, extremely arrogant, and all other qualities that got me thinking, “I never thought such people like these do exist!”
But I’ve also come to learn that sometimes, there is a bright side of the darkest people I know. They’re not always good, but they’re not always bad either.
At the end of the day, it helps me to define the people I can bear and the people I can’t stand. And most importantly, it helps me to decide the person I would like to become. I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome!
