Reason to Celebrate

Two new developments are worthy of some celebration. First, I have accepted a full-time job as Marketing Manager. It is for a company that recruits lawyers. The company is based out of London and has offices all over the world with the Hong Kong office being the largest. (I am intentionally not mentioning the name of the company, because I don't want my blog to come up on a Google search.) The job is in the prestigious area, Central, and I will be working in a fancy building which is located between the Ritz Carlton and Roles Royce dealer. Erik is jealous that I will have a very short commute and will be working in the "fancy" area. I will have to dress up. I am very grateful for this job considering I was told by many people that I would never find a job in my field and because the HK job market is so competitive. There were times that I seriously doubted if I could be happy hear without a full-time job. It was an advantage that the company preferred a native English speaker. I am also grateful that Gore took the news better than expected.

The other good news: it looks as if we have new renters for our house. We approved the application today. Our fingers are crossed that everything works out with these people.
