My Turn



My boss handed me a white envelope this afternoon. Despite of my unreasonable emergency leave this morning, she congratulates me on the job promotion and pay increment. Wow, kind of surprise to me although I've been waiting for my turn all these while. :)

The promotion is effective since June 23rd. It's kind of late to the notification. Anyhow, it's never too late. I'll get the new salary this month. Lilian Too's Fortune & Feng Shui 2008 for my Chinese horoscope stated that in the 5th month of lunar calendar, the promotion luck is on my side. Promotion may come is various form, and the one I got now is the straight forward promotion with pay increase. Superstitious or not, it's kind of accurate, as 23rd of June fell on 5th Lunar month.

I'm not the type of person with wild or high ambition in career. I would rather choose to assist my hubby to achieve accomplishments in his career. So, I'm not greedy. I'm really satisfied with this year's promotion and pay increment.


Due to the inflation recently, the pay increment does really come in at the right time. It's a kind of motivation to me, besides the recognition from my boss.
