40, surprise me! :)

I used to be a planner, but through the years, I’ve become less of it and have found the beauty and joy in not planning too much and just going with the flow. For special occasions, my parents and I, we usually just eat out, have coffee afterwards, and that’s it. I’m not a party…

God’s will + God’s perfect timing = God’s best

More than 4 years ago, after 10 attempts to get a promotion in a span of around 2 years, I finally got it in March 2015. That’s when I met Chris Stephens, the General Counsel (GC) of ADB, since December 2012. In all those unsuccessful applications, I didn’t feel discouraged because I know from experience…

My Georgia Travelogue :) (Part 3)

Since early this year, I was thinking of travelling solo, atleast once in my life. I will be turning 40 this year, so I wanted to do it and push myself out of my comfort zone by travelling without a family member or a friend with me. I couldn’t decide which would be the perfect…

My Georgia travelogue :) (Part 2)

In the morning of 29 May, my boss and I, together with our co-hosting partners from EBRD went to our office in Tbilisi which we call “Georgia Resident Mission” (GRM) to meet and finalize the remaining arrangements. Our GRM colleagues have helped us tremendously in dealing with the hotel where the meetings would be held,…

My Title: A child of God

I am forever grateful to have met and supported these highly accomplished but surprisingly very down-to-earth heads of legal departments across the globe. Before going on mission, I was kind of worried that I might feel inferior being surrounded by lawyers.  I was the only one without a title there, but God is great and…

In the Pink

The earliest citations of ‘in the pink’ are from the 16th century and, at that time, the meaning was ‘the very pinnacle of something’, but not necessarily limited to health.  I actually feel that I am on my way to the peak of my life. Life gets better and better every single year. I thank…

“me time” essentials

The ABCs of my “me time” essentials include: Good: Ambiance  Book  Coffee ️ On this particular day, I managed to squeeze in some “me time.” I actually wanted to make it a regular part of my schedule, maybe once a month, one Saturday or one Sunday when I will spend it somewhere, just reading, chilling, writing my…

Coffee, tea or me?

While we are on the subject of change, I will be sharing with you some changes in me, very light and happy ones, so don’t worry. 🙂 I used to be an avid tea-drinker, well, I still drink tea but very seldom. I only drink it when I feel like I “need” it. Need means…

Change is good…

…it is beautiful. In God’s perfect time. Are you the type who embraces change quite easily or are you like me or most of us who prefer comfort 99% of the time and stay in that zone as much as we can, as much as we are allowed to? Change has lots of facets, degrees,…

Summer Special (Last Part)

When I travel, I usually pack my clothes on the day of departure because I didn’t want my clothes to crumple (too much). I think this is okay for short trips, but not for 2 or 3 week trip. I tried to do that for my 3-week Europe trip, and it was not good, it’s…
