Don't Complain About Work Anymore...

Today is a public holiday again... this is the best month of the year! Out of the 28 days, I counted my working days for this February and to my amazement, I only have to work fourteen days!!
( please dont be jeles... I took some days off for Chinese New Year festival :)

After this month, there will not be any public holiday till April.... don't think about it, sounds kind of dreary if we do.... but then........ here goes.....

Malaysia has the most public holidays if I am not mistaken.... the other day I was counting the public holidays with Aaron and I think, I think.... we have seventeen public holidays in a year here. I did some mental calculation... 17 + 30 days leave + 15 days mc entitlement (shhh....) is equals to 62 days?? Then... 54 weeks in a year... 5 days week working, that is 270 working days minus 62 days leave is equals to 208 days per year.... more or less is equal to 6 months of working and another 6 months of relaxing?

Rough calculation la... ok, who says working is pressure? I think I don't want to complain about working life anymore after this calculation....


  1. Minus two months maternity leave then only work 4 months in a year haha.

  2. bananaz: yes.. 3 months also got.. in some companies.. then 3 months working.. hahaha...

  3. LOL! I need to move seems to be the life.

  4. lol! true true!! love public hols!

  5. ya, don't complain. I just hv 8 days public holidays.

  6. Wah! 30 days Annual Leave... I have none!! :(

  7. lynette: come over!

    carol: now no more till april la..

    wenn: u r boss ma!! hahaha...anytime also can report to work...

    inspiredmum: i tot u everyday on leave one? hahaha...

  8. what holiday ? I work so hard here. :(

  9. At least you have chance to count how many off day in a year...for me, everyday is the work,so no need to count when is PH.

  10. That's the advantage of being in the civil service...

  11. on top of that, we might have some surprise and last minute holidays just like the recent winning in the football match!

  12. hehehhehehe... I never tot of that... but sounds fare.. ^_^

  13. Hi Reanaclaire, good calculation. When I was working, only had that 1 week off during CNY.
    I never took any off days longer than 4 days....worked 7 day weeks, 25 years, not one day off sick leave.
    Reason? I was stupid! Ha ha.

    I too did a count of the vacation days I never took or lost, about 8 months!
    But the company rewarded me in kind....$$$$.
    Good enough. Ha ha.
    Have a nice day....have fun.

  14. How wonderful to see workers rewarded for their contributions!

    As the world adjusts, many Americans lose security and wages they used to enjoy. It is good to see that good things are happening in other places so it all balances out and all people share without poverty anywhere.

  15. WHAT???? Don't let this get out, or everyone will be moving there and there will be a housing shortage!!

  16. And in my case, three months year end, close shop ( no pay! Sobs!) that means I don't work at all the whole year lah?

  17. LOL, you actually counted the yearly holidays and leaves... ;)
    But I dont have 30 days leave leh :P

  18. I was working yesterday, and I only have 21 days annual leave, and I need to work on alternate Saturday. Your life seems much better than mine.

  19. Oh, for govt and bank workers sure good lo! We don't have such life! :(

  20. Pssttttt...i won't be jeles, because this month i only work 10 days!!! After minus chinese new years two days holidays..then next week i only work 1/2 day then i will go for my holidays till month end!!! hohohohohohoh

  21. wah! u put it like that... good leh... but not applicable to me. T.T

  22. Me? Work non-stop day and night. :p Holiday=No Holiday.

  23. Wow you get 30 days annual leave? I have none. LOL! I don't get paid for taking leave and non-working days included public holiday.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
