Satellite Controller, based in Subic Bay, Philippines

The first two photos was taken today (12 Mar) in 2018. I can still remember my first day as a Satellite Controller at ABS, feeling excited to work at my dream company. I can still remember it was the 2nd Monday of March; we were introduced to all the Departments of ABS in Subic Bay along with my 2 new colleagues.

The third photo captures the time when I celebrated New Year’s Eve at ABS Subic Station, away from my family for the first time. Nevertheless, I enjoyed celebrating it with my colleagues as our preparation was all about teamwork.

Meditation is one of my daily habits which helps me to be more mindful of my thoughts and reduce my anxiety during the pandemic. A thirty-minute walk each day also helps recharge my energy. Spending time alone with nature helps to boost my creative mind and confidence.

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book is easy to read but the learnings and wisdom you will get from this book are inspirational.

The Four Agreements in the book are:

1. Be Impeccable with your words

2. Do not take anything personally

3. Stop making assumptions

4. Always do your best

I still find it challenging to apply these agreements to my daily life, but they serve as important reminders for me to become a better person every day at work and beyond work.
