So I haven’t posted in ages, but I myself didn’t even know what was going on in my own life, so I decided to hold back from blogging until I figured things out. I had no idea what to do when my team was dissolved at Johnson & Johnson, and grabbed the first position that opened up to me in Hong Kong: to be a lifestyle writer at a tourism magazine. That decision was based on a combination of things, pressure from my father being no small factor, and then just generally sustaining myself in such an expensive city being another big one. I was thinking - this is my chance to go to South America! But I buckled under the uncertainty of that road, putting it off for another year or two. (Mark my words though, it will happen one day…)
And so there I was, not convinced I was cut out to do writing for a living (I’m too used to writing for purely selfish reasons, and I absolutely hate my content being dictated upon), but things slowly fell into place, I suppose. Food tasting in 5-star restaurants every week - not so bad, I thought. And then there’s my schedule for tomorrow afternoon:
3.30 – 4:30pm Interview with Sheraton Hong Kong’s Managing Director at the Wineroom on the 18th floor
5:00 - 6:30pm Tasting session of the Sky Lounge’s Royal Afternoon Tea Set featuring the new May promotion
7:00pm Sheraton Social Hour cocktail event
Is this for real?? Is this my actual job?! Well, out the window go my corporate aspirations (at least for now), and in goes not taking myself too seriously again… if I ever really did, that is.
