I am really grateful for all the blessings I’ve received recently that’s why I wanted to give back. I just have to thank my mom for supporting me all the way that’s why I gave her a post holiday treat, an overnight stay here in the place where I am working. Of course, it is also a vacation for me so it is a win-win situation when I bought us a room. *Sigh* just look at this place…
Happy holidays, folks!
Shot I took when I was going around the hotel yesterday. Pretty Christmas ornaments in Edsa Shangri-La, Manila!

Right after graduation, I started sending out my resume to different companies I found online. I didn’t have a lot in mind on what I was really going to do so I just sent it out to whatever companies with whatever openings that I am qualified to. I’ve attended some of the interviews, and omg, some companies really made me not want to do well with my interview.
After weeks of job hunting, I saw a job ad for Edsa Shang. I passed my CV online and then they texted me a day after, telling me I am qualified for an interview. I squealed and checked the site again (where I found the job ad) and I didn’t find the ad, which means the position is not open anymore. The interview process was tedious but I was able to pass it all, and thankfully, I am now a hired employee of this five-star hotel. I am their Marketing Communications Assistant. Not bad for a fresh grad ;)
My first few weeks here in Edsa Shangri-La, Manila was great, and I am hoping for more happy days to come. Happy holidays to everyone!

My Hong Kong Trip in an Instagram summary!
1. (UL) That’s me with my gong cha drink. Paco and I love that brand of tea. We were amazed that it’s available in HK…. well, duh. Haha.
2. (UR) A shot from the top of The Peak. It doesn’t seem cold, but I tell you, we were freezing up there when I took this shot.
3. (LL) A building shot when we stopped over at a corner road. We got lost in HK. Actually, we didn’t. I just panicked and realized that we got down on a wrong station haha.
4. (LR) That’s me and Paco right after the parade in Hong Kong Disneyland. I am really happy to have spent this trip with him. I couldn’t imagine anyone else with me that moment :)
SO THAT’S MY HONG KONG ESCAPADE IN A NUTSHELL!
