A journey to remember

2016 with Lazada

Posted on: December 20, 2016

2016 at Lazada was literally a lot of things to me. The ups and downs were just unbelievable. Things changed so fast it felt like it was too much for just a year.

It was the year when I was the closest to my team, but it was also the year I had to rebuild my team (nearly) from the scratch again.

It was the year when I told myself that I had found my dream job, but it was also the year when I realized some things had changed and might never ever be the same again.

It was the year when I felt fulfilled, but it was also the year I got swamped and it felt like I hadn’t given my very best to the Company.

It was the year when I met a few incredible colleagues (including a new boss who had been one of the best mentors during my career), but it was also the year I had to deal with a few horrible persons who hurt me so badly.

And finally, it was the year when I was both of the happiest and the saddest in my entire career path. It was the year I claimed some victories, but it was also the year I lost some battles.

Given the crazy downfall, I am still unsure if 2016 at Lazada was a better year than the one I used to have back in 2014, but one thing for sure; I am so grateful that I stayed long enough with this Company. If only I decided to leave, then I might never have all these exciting roles, and I might never meet that one boss who really made me feel appreciated in his own way. And the most important thing, staying one more year at Lazada has taught me this one great lesson in life on how to be a better, bigger, and happier person.

Thanks to Lazada for this one crazy year and I’m still hoping to grow with you at least in a couple of years to come! Happy new year for all Lazadians!

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!
