Thirty

Seems like a big new number for me, yet I am not so sure what to expect to be a 30 year old, more responsibilities at work and life maybe? 

Anyway, Happy 30th Birthday to myself! 
Note to self, is to find my own happiness, never expect or rely on anyone else, near or far.

A.Manager

So what happened was, I applied for the Assistant Manager post in my department (Yes I know, not a direct promotion but a new application, weirdly speaking but that's the system) and fortunately I have got through the interview, earning myself a promotion from Senior Executive to Assistant Manager for the domestic market. I have not forgotten, 2-3 years ago back in my previous company, there is this future objective thing that I've written in my appraisal that I would want to climb up to a managerial position by the age of 30. Why guess what, I am turning 30 two weeks later. :)

Sounds like a dream come true? Well I am not sure, yet. I do not have the confident in managing a team of 4, yet, what more the manager (younger, bad feedbacks from the industry) who is coming in soon and the 2 levels above him. Not going to be an easy task AT ALL!

We shall see how it goes. Need a lot of self-managing starting from NOW.
