Head of Ad Sales, Malaysia
I am the head of ad sales in Malaysia and my role involves establishing new accounts while maintaining current business. I not only monitor competitors' activities but am also responsible for ad sales and revenue from events.
I believe in hard work and so I believe in "No pain, No gain".
First thing I prefer to have after I wake up is a cup of hot MILO, which I prepare for myself and my husband. I am almost addicted to MILO and usually prefer it over coffee. It helps me feels refreshing.
A typical day for me in office is checking incoming emails, meeting ad agencies and potential clients. It's a hectic schedule at work but I love my work and so I love doing all that. For me, everyday is a new challenge with loads of fun.
I usually don't have breakfast before leaving for office and so I prefer having brunch during my lunch hours. I do not carry home-made food to office. I love Thai and Japanese food a lot and so I and my colleagues head to a nearby hotel for brunch.
I love to travel and explore new places. My dream destination is Europe and I am planning to visit it next year. I would also love to visit UK, Australia and Thailand.
Before returning home, I grab a cup of masala tea from a shop near my office. The cup of tea re-energizes and relaxes me.
