My Third Home.

The first month is over. How crazy is that?

I still remember very clearly when I first started in this company. I wasn't in the sales team as I didn't want to get into sales (like I mentioned in the what's next? post). I was assigned to Tour Department where we handle all the travelling details from getting air tickets, booking hotel rooms and plan out itineraries according to clients' preference. All the little details la. And then two weeks into that, I realized that I really want to do something more 'difficult' or challenging. So what did I do? I went for a heart-to-heart talk with my manager (the nice lady who interviewed me), and then she offered me a switch to the sales department if I really want to. She gave me a week to think about it, but guess what. The very next day, I decided and the day after that, I'm where I am right now. Happy and thankful.

Truthfully, I never see myself being a salesperson. First, I don't like the feeling of having to convince people to buy something from me. Second, I thought that most salespeople have quite stressful life (yes, I really don't like stressful lifestyle! - that's why I'm not in the banking line). Third, I have quite a bad experience being in sales before (I realized now that its a totally different thing, phew!).

So yea, but I really thank God that so far, I'm loving what I do. Sports Travel and Student Travel (one of the things I'm in charge of). Other than that, it's corporate sales. So far so good :)

I still remember Adrian's expression when I told him I decided to switch to sales. Because he has always been that person to tell me that I will do well in sales as I have what it takes. You know, like not being afraid to talk to strangers and have a very thick-face-skin! haha. I kept telling him that I will 'NEVER' go into sales. So, you can imagine how he reacted. With the words "I TOLD YOU SO!" written everywhere on his thicker-face! :) There was a bit of anger also la cos he kept telling me that I will like it and convincing me to give it a try and I turned his idea down every time! Sorry, Koay! I'm listening to you now.. *eyes open wide* :)

This is really like how when I chose to study Finance and Management. I didn't even like Maths or Accounts or Finance! In fact, I hate Maths. Then, later on, I fell in love with Finance (still shocking news till today). And I thought I would feel miserable too being in sales, but no. I fell in love with my current position. God is very good at surprising people. And I have to say that I love it every time he does that to me.

That is why people, it is important to have that childlike faith, believing in the smallest and most impossible things in life, and then witnessing God does His wonders. It's mindblowing, really. I can tell you my stories, but it's really different when you go through it yourself. Like I said, it's mindblowing and it makes you smile just thinking about it.

Anyways, enough with words. Time for some photos! :)

A very big table for such a petite girl, I would say.
(not complaining though)

Such a great computer, but has no access to Facebook 
(yes, right now I'm believing in the impossible - which is KL headquarters would allow it, soon!)

I am still searching for a really nice attractive unique holder/things to beautify my table.

My favorite drawer. Apa pun ada.
