Blog it Forward – Rachel Tang
Hi every one,
I was blogged by my colleague Caetano Almeida (Blog it Forward – Caetano Almeida) and Nancy Guo (Blog it Forward – Nancy Guo)and I’m here today to accept this challenge and create my own BIF blog, talking a little bit about myself. You can find more information about this called on the blog Blog It Forward Community Challenge and add your name into the Blog It Forward (BIF) Chain if you want to join it.
My born name is Tang Rui (唐瑞), Tang is my family name and I named myself as Rachel Tang when I joined SAP as it’s much easier for my colleagues from other countries to call me. Talking about the age, it is a secret for every lady, but you will find out it after reading through my blog.
From my name you may already know that I was born in China. My hometown is a small city located in the north-west of China, called Karamay, it is famous for Oil because it has one of the biggest oil fields in China and named by it.
Driving to the west for no more than two hours from my hometown, you will reach the centre of Eurasia – The fastest place from the sea of the world, this is also why the second large desert of the world – Taklimakan Desert is not far away.
But no WORRY, I was not living in the middle of the desert, my hometown is like a shinning star, it is very beautiful and full of water. Walking through it, you can imagine you are walking in a European town as it’s clean and bright.
I was born there and lived there for 18 years. I was dreaming of ocean because I was far away from it. So I chose a university which is located in a city just nearby the sea. The city is Dalian where I am living now.
Therefore I need to fly more than 5 hours then drive 4 hours to come back to my hometown now. However, distance can never stop my footsteps back home.
SAP and me
In the year 2006, I finished my 5 years college life in Dalian University of Technology and received a dual degree for Computer Science and International Economy and Trade. Then I joined SAP in the summer of 2006 untill now. My main area are ERP MAN and PLM. I learned a lot here and met many nice people here. I am also happy that I can of some use to help others because of my work. This is my 9th year in SAP, after these years of experience, I become familiar with production process, classification, variant configuration, batch management, project system and some other area. I also grow up in my personal life, I got married, my first boy was born in 2012, my second boy was born in 2014. When I joined SAP, I was a happy girl, now, I am a hot mummy.
I love my job and my family. I feel happy with my work, as I can help many others with many problems. I am even happy in my life, as I have two lovely sons. I hope the happy life can continue like this forever.
Fun facts about me:
I do no good at sports but I love watch sports games, maybe not the game itself, but the super stars. I like Luis Figo, Michael Jordan and many top stars. I watch World Cup and NBA. I also like some sports that is not very famous like Curling. I enjoy the feelings during the process, exciting with them, laughing with them and feel regretful with them.
I am also a big fan of cartoon, not only the cartoon from Disney and DreamWorks, but also the cartoon from Japan like One Piece and Naruto.
The last one, I love travel, meet different peopel, know different culture, see different view.
So do you know my age now? If you read my blog carefully, you will find the correct answer. You will get a sweet candy in your dream if you give a correct answer. 🙂
