MY FAVORITE AGE IS 26…27?
I turned 27 a few weeks ago. Last year was the best year of my life, but every year has been greater than the one before, so I expect this year will be even better.Sound cliche? Maybe, but it was really a fantastic year. I had so much fun at work and in my private life.
(for those of you who don’t know, I’m an engineer in a certain manufacturing company. I won’t tell you who I work for, but I’m 90% sure you have one of our products at home. I start up production lines)My 26th birthday was spent on a business trip to Germany, visiting one of our production sites. Since I didn’t know very many people there, I thought I’d spend my birthday alone. It certainly didn’t turn out that way – see the picture below!
One of the girls decided to throw a party for me (I’m 5th from left)
It was great working in Germany – very different from what I’m used to. I spent a month in a certain factory in a very small town in southern Germany!
Another thing that went great was that I finished my project in China! It went fantastically well, even though everyone I worked with was younger than me (HORROR!!!!), they all tried their best. The best part was that they made me feel very welcome and we were really one great team!
Me with my team
My passion is traveling. Along with my business trips last year, I got to go to so many places and do so many things. IT WAS THE BEST.
Where did I go?
(Eiffel tower, sorry I’m not in the picture since I was there alone!)
This is a biking tour through Paris – I highly recommend this!!
(I don’t know the people in the pic. They were just in the same biking group)
(Great Wall, and right before the Olympics!)
Part of my pearl haul… only part of it!
(excuse the shine. Go to 紅橋市場 for great pearls and great bargaining!!)
(China – I worked there on and off for nearly 6 months!)
(Yes, that’s me scuba diving with sea turtles)
(I took these pics from a moving ferry. Sorry if it’s out of focus!)
I made so many good friends last year. Isn’t that the best thing ever?
Some are old friends…
Scott lives in Canada and I only see him rarely – but we met up in China!
Some are new friends…
Amber was one of the girls I worked with in China!
So yeah, last year was truly a fantastic year for me! I’m gonna do my best to make sure that my 27th year is better than my 26th so that next year I’ll be able to say “My Favorite Age is 27…!!”
