What's Up and Winners

Hello blogger - I missed you! I have been on MIA from social media and events. Oftentimes, I don't even get to check my Facebook - or my personal email (sorry for the delay in my responses). It has been a crazy month. And now that I am back, I cannot wait to share my stories.

If you can let me share a one-month worth of status message, it would read like this - I need to see my doctor, but I met a banker instead and opened my first investment. Yey! I missed my niece and nephew - that I let my world shut down, and connect with them since I only get to see them once a year. They are like expat's kids. Speaking of expats, I missed seeing a friend who is a wife of an expat who was here on vacation. I need to connect to my friends really soon. I noticed that it is all about work and home for me recently. And at work - I give guidance and answer inquiries - but the question that is most difficult to answer, was the one from  my boss' boss  - what is your career plan? Moment of silence. I am happy with what I have, with what I do. I am not aiming to be promoted. Not now. But I can always say yes. But the irony of life, it looks like I got promotions. A different promotion. My name (and pictures) had been in the recent organization communications. I wish I could share them with you, but maybe next time. It is about a global program I have participated in last year. And guess, I was even invited as a guest speaker. You see, work is fun for me. But when you found out that the people you are working with decided to move, that makes you want to make the move too. Move. The action I need to do to the packages I received from the last month awaiting their reviews. What's keeping you busy?

Before I even start with more stories, let me announce the winners of the give-aways I ran last month. Thank you so much to everyone who joined, and for the patience. I had to verify the winners' entries before I can make this announcement.. So, without further ado..
