It is the time of the year again for us to review our year-long achievements, make our life plans and also financial goals in 2018. There are a lot of achievements for me to be proud of in 2017, however I can’t manage to tell every individual success in this post – will do only if I have time. Before we bid adieu to year 2017, let me share with you my own plan for 2018.
My Plan for 2018
1. Make a Career Change
If you no longer can find the passion to make a positive difference, even after doing your best, perhaps you are in the wrong field. It’s fine to start over or start again as long as you have thought through it thoroughly. Some of us who are lucky, find ourselves very early in life. You know exactly what you want in life and you know how to go get it. Those who are said to be unlucky are the ones who are always searching.
There’s no guarantee that it won’t fail. All I need is work hard, keep trying and tweaking over time. Get a resume makeover. Think of best answers to give for though interview questions. Employers are often very specific about the skills and experience they are seeking. They prefer to recruit someone who has a proven track record in their sector, which can make it tough to make changes in career path. To improve the chances of job success, it’s important to identify strengths and match them where possible to the needs of potential employers.
It’s rare to find a job immediately. We need to be financially and psychologically important to prepare for a job search that could take a few months longer. However, I will set myself a realistic time frame and do everything I can to stay positive. A career is like a marathon. You have to set realistic goals to know “what” you need to do to get to “where” you want to be.
Recently, I was invited to attend a talk show – Ideas Agent Meetup which provides meeting ground for creative and innovative individuals. It is a TED style keynote ideas pitching mix with creative youth workshop on making the ideas happen. The presenter will provide big ideas to inspire everyone to look into the subject from a new perspective; I was totally impressed with inspiring talk on that afternoon.
The session started by a short film screening in the hall.
Whether you are planning a long trip or running errands, perhaps you would like to stop for a break or there are a few interesting scenery views that you would like to see while traveling. With Route4Me’s route planning software, it allows you to key in multiple places and addresses, which will plot the whole route at the most efficient traveling time from location to location for you. Besides that, it will also map out a round trip so you can make a return to where you began.
This route planner software can also provides you the driving directions to each location that you can easily print and take with you. Or you can download the directions file into your GPS device or other navigation systems that support it, so the route comes up pre-plotted when you connect it into your GPS.
The web interface is pretty simple and straightforward – you just need enter current location and destinations. However, you might have to change them if your addresses provided are not specific enough. The system is not as forgiving as some other mapping tools.
It has been a while since the last invited review. At first, I would like to thanks Pavilion Cafe and Criz Lai for making the arrangements.
Pavilion Café is an old fashioned Chinese interior coffee house which is just located at the opposite of Kwang Wah Yit Poh Press Bhd, Georgetown. It offers a variety of service and amenities to suit the individual needs. Cafe, resting area, family room, are some of the facilities on offer. The boss there is very friendly and the place is suitable for get-together, chit chatting and relaxation as it is cozy enough.
Before we started having the dinner, each of us had a chance to look and feel of the 5 new Ninetology models such as Ninetology U9R1, U9X1, U9Z1, U9Z1+ and Ninetology Stealth 4X. My most preference would be the Ninetology U9Z1+ as it comes with a very high camera quality which is good enough for photo shooting when the DSLR camera is not with me.
I was exclusively invited to join the Ninetology Social Urbanite at 1881 Chong Tian Hotel, Penang. The night event saw the unveiling of 3 brand new smartphone offerings – U9X1, U9Z1 and U9Z1+. It was my first time encounter with the company; I was surprised at the level of build-in quality and design they have brought to the phones.
According to the MC that day, Ninetology is the ASEAN Mobile Device Technology company. It currently launched its premium line of smartphones – the U9 series. It features the top-of-the-line specifications, engineered to suit the needs of the youth. The three models – X1, Z1 and Z1+ are new stylish mobile devices that offer better performance and up-to-date technology.
Ninetology has a strategic partnership with MediaTek Inc, which is the leading semiconductor company for wireless communications and digital multimedia solutions. It has been utilized in U9 series to power the latest applications and enhance overall user experience.
After doing my registration at the counter, i was brought to the photography session in which each of the blogger had to do some posing for contest purpose. After that, I was required to proceed to another counter to share the Ninetology video advertisement on my Facebook. Then, I was given a power bank which helped me save some bucks as I was planning to get one too.
For me, dining at 1881 Chong Tian hotel during Ninetology launch event was a very good experience. In fact, it has a really good ambience with well decorated and unique Chinese antiques design. We were served with a lot of nice food and I also be able to share some of the photos below:
