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....

  12. 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.
    Lee.

  13. 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.
