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!

From classmates to travelmates! Been friends since we were only 15 years old! Met them up today and we’ve made a lot of plans for our coming trips. Let’s make it happen!
I don’t know why but I couldn’t seem to get any new outfit for Lebaran this year. I went to three shopping malls but then I went home with empty hands. So here I am... wearing one old dress I bought a couple years ago. Today before Eid prayer was begun, I saw something that made me smile. I instantly knew that I’ve had something way more important than a new dress for myself. I’d be happy if I had a new dress, but I’m still perfectly happy even without any of it. God has been incredibly kind to me and Ramadhan this year couldn’t be more miraculous to me. I am full of flaws, but I’ve had way more than enough, and I couldn’t ask for more. Eid mubarak and please do forgive me for all the wrong said and done. Let’s celebrate this holly day as the new beginning for each and everyone of us. Love - Riffa.
Arfa, my very first nephew, is turning six today! Just two days ago, he told me, “Aunty, when I grow up, I want to be vey rich so that I can buy for you anything you want!” He’s lovable, isn’t he? It never ceases to amaze me to see all the new things he learned, said, and did in the past 6 years. He’s growing up so fast and I can’t be prouder of him! Happy birthday, Arfa! Wish you’ll always be a loving kid and may Allah always bless you in every step of the way. So much love - your proud Aunty ❤️
