Hello world, it’s been a couple of months since I last blogged. Close to a year, in fact! My last post was dated 1 December 2015.
So many things happened in between. I don’t know where and how to begin.
Firstly, I’ve officially turned 21 and am legally an adult. I didn’t hold a grand party like most of my peers do. Instead, I opted to celebrate my birthday by meeting old and new friends alike throughout the month of July and spent the actual day with my boyfriend and family.
Next, I dropped my Marketing Major and focusing solely on Human Resources. I hope to eventually find a HR job in the Hospitality industry after I graduate. However, I’m aware that the economy is down now and it’s unlikely recover anytime soon. Hence, I’m willing to try out any jobs that come my way, even with lesser (albeit not by too much) pay. What’s most important is that I’m able to learn new things and get experience.
Apart from that, it’s been a year since my maternal grandfather passed away (he left us on 24 September 2015) and also the last time since I’ve returned to Bohol, Philippines.
My mum recently applied to become a citizen of Singapore (she’s currently a PR). We’ll only know of the results next year.
Lastly (no, not really), My boyfriend and I plan to seek marriage approval from the Ministry of Manpower (a.k.a. MOM) next year, most likely after I graduate from University. It’s necessary to do so as he’s a work-permit holder. According to the MOM site, failure to do so will result in the withdrawal of his work permit (which means that he’s unable to work in Singapore anymore) and he may not be able to enter Singapore for a period of time.
There’re obviously a couple of things that I’ve yet to mention, but I’d probably leave it for another time. Bye for now.
