bye bye corporate world!

(yet another personal post) 
as most of you know, i'll be leaving Shanghai this week... i quit my job? yes.

(mall managers christmas 2007)

and for those who were wondering what my job was.. i was the marketing supervisor of our shanghai mall (main base: manila, philippines. but we have offices around china and asia too.. too bad i didn't pursue it!) and i handle events, promotions, advertisings, etc. it was fun really, cos i always get a lot of freebies, meet a lot of advertisers, and was always the first to know about SALE! :) my lunchbreak's and office hour's were mostly spent shopping (or in formal term - supervising ~haha!) i was also the youngest, let alone the only female expat sent 2007 (they only sent 3) - so imagine my daily frustration of not being able to share my superficial, shoppaholic self. boo!

for the things that i am thankful for... and will surely miss:

(1) all my bosses were really good to me.. from immediate managers - city GM - country GM - CEO - President
(2) i was declared CEO (chief entertainment officer) by our president and we parted whenever they're in SH!
(3) the 7th billionnaire in the Phils. knows who i am
(4) i maxed up my leave and bonuses!
(5) improved my mandarin :) first 2 months was hell!
(6) learned to be more independent 
(7) became more open-minded 
(8) the loooonng 7-mos winter in Shanghai! (tropical girl considers autumn here winter!)
(9) h&m!! 
(10) acting like a true-blue "foreigner" and pretending NOT to understand what the people were saying! >:)

anyway, i have been slacking at work and acting really crazy these past few days... packing / shopping / partying and all. i also got ill recently.... so apologies for the lack of blog visits. i promise to resume (and focus on more outfit posts) once im settled and feeling much better! :)

but thanks you all... and see yah!

Prettier in video? Oooh *blushes* thank you. I want to make more videos, it's actually a lot more fun to do than I originally thought. Thanks for commenting on it. ^_^ None of my 'real world' friends know of blogging either, so it is kind of like this secret, fun place for us fashion lovers to gather simultaneously! ♥ xx You should make a video.

Okay, gorgeous, did you finally buy the Gucci or not? Soooo curious.

You've achieved so much, we are all SO proud of you! I really admire you for everything you are and you've done.

When are you actually going home? What are you going to do? Keep us posted!

xoxo
