Got my pay rise this week. It's peanuts :( My performance have been good, and I've got very good comments from my manager during my performance review so was really expecting something better than last year. Then, out of the blue, when I opened the confidential notification letter....I was like..."what the heck?" Even peanut bigger than this! (>_<)!! Damn disappointed lah! I later found out pay rise this year is generally lower than previous years across the whole company. WHY???? Inflation arealdy so high, petrol cost, groceries and everything else have gone up like no tomorrow, and how come the pay rise going opposite direction? This doesn't make sense, or does it? Hell!
Anyway, the celebration still went ahead. This has been my tradition since I started working, and I am relunctant to break it. I'm superstitious! So, I ate my heart (also lungs, pancreas and the rest of my organs) out yesterday. I had worked hard for the past year and ain't gonna stop giving myself a big treat just because of the unsatisfying pay rise! And, of course, BIIIIIIIIG pat on my back!
Happy moon cake festival everyone! I was too late for the moon cakes, sold out. Nevermind, I can still celebrate by eating peanuts with
bear beer, heh!
