On last 2012 year-end , I didn’t get chance to write my review because I was busy working on some more important things. I know it’s a bit late writing a 2012 review in January. But it’s OK, it’s now still first week of January and sometimes late is better than never hahaha! So, here’s my short note: year 2012 in review. :mrgreen:

There were many things happened in 2012, some of them made major changes in my life. I met many new people and had some new experiences as well. I went to many new places causing an upgrade on my frequent flyer. Most of all, I learned a lot of things that changed me inside and outside.

I moved in to my current company in March. To work for a IT company was one of my dreams since years ago. Prior to my current job, I have worked for various companies like NGO, blog hosting provider and communications consultancies. This was the time for me to get a new experience and learn the industry from different side. I’ve been learning many new things -other than digital communications- here and enjoying the environment as well. As part of a great team (yes, we got several achievements last year and managed to maintain our leadership in Indonesia), I’m so ready for more challenges and experiences on years ahead.

Work as a full-time employee also means that I had to move to Jakarta. It’s the best option I had since I can’t rely on public transportation that mostly sucks. Beside, I don’t want to spend 5 hours every day struggling on the road to get myself come on time. This also gives me chance to hang out with friends in my spare time or do some other stuffs like after-hours shopping.

Work hard, play harder

Me on a business trip, can you believe it?

Since my first overseas trip in 2010, I made this uhm, resolution to take at least one overseas trip every year. In November, I was invited to come and speak at BlogFest Asia 2012, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Visiting Cambodia especially Angkor Wat has been on my bucket list for so long and I was extremely happy it finally happened last year. The most important thing, I was finally able to meet some of fellow members of South East Asia Social Network (SEASONed) there and had a great time together. You can find my writings about my Cambodia trip here and there (on my travel blog).

 

With some BlogFest Asia participants

I decided to start blogging in English after the event. Yeah, I know my English is not that good as you may find grammar mistakes here and there. But it’s part of the learning, no? Most of my fellow Asian bloggers aren’t English native speakers as well (just like me) but they manage to blog in English. ;)

So what would I do in 2013?

I don’t feel like making some new ambitious resolutions for this year. Well maybe I’ll make some later.. Things that came in mind as I write this post are: better time management (so I don’t have to work on weekend), spend more time for blogging (as I’ve been abandoning my blogs for months), register myself at a fitness club (I don’t think I can make it though), take at least one overseas trip (I’m thinking about Vietnam or Philippines) and have a better love personal life.

How ’bout you? What’s your new year resolution? Any particular dreams to achieve? :D
