NEW ZEALAND WORKING HOLIDAY 2011: The 1st week journey in Auckland

July 01, 2011 2
I saw my older brother's Facebook status reminiscing what he did exactly 1 year ago.....and it made me ponder on what I did exactly 1 year ago.....and then I realized....

Exactly 1 year ago, I was waiting patiently for more than 2 1/2 hours at the LCCT airport for someone's arrival....oh well, at least at that time I had a HUGE smile on my face as I believed the wait was worth it :-)

Funny how simple things like that could make the naive me sooo happy at that time. No regrets! coz I have treated the people around me like how I deserved to be treated and loved like how I deserved to be loved...

How people treat you is their karma, How you react is yours ~ Wayne Dyer

Fast forward 1 year later, I'm in a foreign land at the start of winter and while my friends & ex-colleagues are plucking kiwi fruits under the scorching UV-sunrays (the hole in the Ozon layer is located at this side of the world remember?), I am employed in Auckland's LARGEST & MOST PRESTIGIOUS X firm O_O.....I never knew how HUGE the company I was working with until I arrived here...

I'M ONE HELL OF A BLOODY LUCKY GIRL :-D

Can't really reveal to you all what's my exact position or role yet as I'm on a special secret mission (no kidding)...but I count my lucky stars over and over again ^__^

Coming over here I had no plans whatsoever...you read it RIGHT! No financial plans, career plans, how am I gonna survive, what am I going to do, what is my back up plan....

My friends were surprised coz as they jokingly say I would always "Plan things 5 years in advance" hahahah!!! In fact, I always have a 3-inch thick handbook/printout on things to see/eat/do everytime I travel.....

I guess this was my subconscious way of opening my mind and heart for a new beginning...by not limiting myself to see/do/eat ONLY whatever that is PLANNED...

Maybe this is SARAH MAY LOW growing up? To go with the flow as the future is UNPREDICTABLE?.....like you have read at the beginning of this blogpost....what I really wanted back then became impossible right now...

But one thing I'm sure of is, this journey will be a chapter of my life that I will never forget :-)

Flew over to this part of the world via Royal Brunei Airline...had to take a connecting flight at Brunei Airport...
