Time for a break

The year 2013 is 111 days' old today.

Been busy for the past few weeks at work as the Company's financial year end falls on 31 March. Needing a breather, and jumped at my friend's invitation to go visit ... yay, will be there soon!

So looking first trip for the year!

Exceedingly abundantly

With the uncertainty of global economy and the increasing challenge to do business, many organisations resort to cost cutting measures to stay in business whilst maintaining, if not, increasing net profit.

Most often than not, when cost cutting is involved, first to be on the chopping board is personnel cost. Coming from a finance background, this is the scenario that we often observe.

With that as the background of this post, (I know I know, I seldom blog so 'seriously')...let's move on to the gist.

My Head of Dept approached me today and passed me a letter. *suspense* Oh, it's the letter from HR stating our annual increment for the year. This is early, usually we will only get this in June (financial year end is March). Well, it could only be good. And by good, it far exceeds my own expectations. I am thankful, and am glad that my hard work was noticed and rewarded.

Thank You, Lord! Never lacking, never too much, always enough. 'battle' won, another to go - bonus! I am not sure how much I will be getting, as we do not have contractual bonus, but I am guessing, hoping it won't be too bad.
