I have a lot of things in my mind to write about (specially now that I feel like I’m in a major backlog with my blog posts lately, not that it matters to any of you…) but before anything else, I have a good news to share to all of you. No wait, I have a great news! No, a swaggeristic news!
It was announced earlier this afternoon that since our company has reached 59% profit for the previous financial year, we will receive a bonus of a total of 12 weeks of our monthly basic salary as our profit sharing!!!!!!!! Woot woot woot!!!!!! So yeah, after 3 years and 7 months with the company, this is the very first time that I’m receiving that huge amount of bonus. The first year I joined the company they gave 16 weeks bonus but as a new joiner, I got a prorated bonus so it was roughly around 8 weeks that I received. Second year of my employment was the financial crisis here in Dubai so there was no bonus for anyone. Third year was only 2 weeks which is already okay considering the fact that it was still a tough year for us then. So to say that I’m happy about this is the understatement of the year.
So what am I going to do with all those money?
Pay one of my credit card bills (I have two credit cards) and finally close that account. The rest of the amount will be put in my “travel pot” for this summer’s escapade. Yeehaw!
