MY 2019 IN REVIEW

2019 has been a wonderful and fruitful year for me. As I'm reading back my 2019 New Year Resolutions blog post, I'm so glad that I actually achieved some of my goals while some other goals also have an encouraging progress.

Here are some of my humbling and fascinating moments of my 2019:

January
- Got invited to Penang for CHARIS x UFCO Event
It's been years since I last visited Penang and I honestly find this city so authentic and beautiful (will definitely be back soon!) It was also super fun to be a part of the event and I was so happy to have met so many new friends from all around the world as well as getting to know the CHARIS team better! Thank you Charis and UFCO for organising this!




- Singapore with Josephine
Right after Penang, I flew to Singapore with Josephine for a short work trip courtesy of Resorts World Sentosa. Can't believe I actually touched and even fed stingrays in at Adventure Cove Waterpark! 




February
- Travelled to Guang Zhou for work, basically to source for new collection and manufacturers for THE JEM LABEL. It was indeed an eye-opening experience; it gave me an insight and idea on the entire wholesale market industry in Guang Zhou. It was massive (or rather chaotic). Although I'm no longer with JEM anymore, it was still an experience that I've learned from a lot and will never forget.



March
Chiang Rai (not Chiang Mai) in Thailand is exceptionally beautiful. Enough said. Thank you so much AirAsia for sending me to this beautiful place.




April
- Got invited to Seoul for Mamonde's Red Energy Recovery Serum launch
So honoured to be one of the 3 selected KOLs to attend Mamonde's Red Energy Recovery Serum launch with Park Shin Hye's appearance!!






- Travelled to Jeju with CHARIS
Fun times learning about K-beauty in Jeju and interacting with fellow beauty influencers from all over the world!



May

- Invited to host a private workshop about content creation with Origins and Clinique's consultants
It was really an honour to be invited to share my tips and expertise on content creation. 


- Travelled to Cameron Highlands and Tanjong Jara Resort with YTL Hotels
