I started the decade saying I’ll move to the Philippines just to study in UP then head back to HK to start a corporate career. But guess what, a decade later, I’m still here in the Philippines...doing something completely different...😅 but hey, just because I didnt do what I said I’d do doesn’t mean I failed 😮. Life is full of twists and turns; always expect the unexpected...and make the most out of the unexpected. 😊
