Embrace the new year!

Today is the last day of year 2015! The last quarter of 2015 has ended swiftly with lots of things going on..

During the end of September / early October I was fortunate enough to visit my girlfriend in Australia. If I remembered correctly this was her 3rd overseas rotation in the past 3 years… hmm. One good thing is it provides me the opportunity (forces me? xD) to travel overseas 🙂

End September was about the end of Winter/Spring season, therefore the temperature was <20°C or lower generally. Long story short, we spent few days in Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road, spent another few more days in Tasmania and back in Melbourne again for the last few days. I guessed some pictures with caption is better than a looooong paragraph.

Back in Singapore, I resigned from my company in October.. Christmas Eve was my last day of duty. It was really a tough decision to make, particularly because it was my first job after graduated from university. After working for 2.5 years in the company, I realized my interest still lies greatly on technical / development role. I guessed it was the sense of achievement after solving a certain problems by providing great solution attracted me the most. In any case, I appreciate the knowledge I have gained in the company, along with all the guidance and support from my peers, colleagues and supervisors :’) Till we meet again!

Moving forward to 2016, I will soon start my new role as a software engineer. At the same time, I will continue to continue my learning journey in apps development, various side projects and to gain some financial knowledge. I believe it will be an interesting year!
