My Daily Routine-
Quite early. I am usually starting early morning for meeting our clients from US or EU at their time zone. As a company, we work towards our client time zones. No day is the same as I travel quite frequently; but in general: I tend to review my emails received overnight with a cup of tea and make priority to answer when I first get up, have breakfast and then I’m out the door within 30 minutes!
My idea of fitness and nutrition-
I exercise almost daily. I find it an important way of balancing work-related stress and staying healthy.
My favourite cuisine-
I genuinely love Asian food! I love the variety! One of the benefits of my job is that I’m able to visit many countries in Asia and enjoy the regional cuisine!
My favourite holiday spot-
Home! As I frequently travel, I very much enjoy my time at home. It provides a foundation to my work/life balance.
My idea of balance between personal and professional life-
It is hard to separate them, as I believe they are very much connected. I think it is important to try and enjoy your professional life as much as your personal life.
