Why work soooooo hard for bonus????

Got something interesting from my company mail box and thought of sharing it with u guys and gurls....

The mystery is finally revealed!

When the British were in Malaya, they were being paid weekly and they
argued that locals were actually being cheated into believing that the
13th month pay is a bonus.

Locals were being paid monthly which is equivalent to 4 weeks pay because
there are 4 weeks in a month. As the British were paid weekly, it worked
out to the same. You see, there are 7 days in a week. 4 weeks in a month.
12 months in a year. Then 12 months should work out to 48 weeks only. But 1
year worked out to 52 weeks!!! Hence the 13th month is your own pay (not

So, the British argued that there is in fact no bonus at all??? It is a
very simple calculation that stunned many!!!!

So... if u got 1 month bonus, that is actually ur pay salary. BONUS??? What
bonus???!!! hahaha....

Talking about work bonus make me think back on my current work. What is my purpose of working now? Seems like i have lost some sense of direction in my work life. Now my purpose of working seems to be more focus on find more money ;p. Last time i thought pay is not that important. The important is find the job u like alot and make u happy.. Seems like had change. I guess maybe because of surrounding factor... Hmmmmm :? Need to think think about it...

To love what you're working on, not working on what you love. Money always important, but not most important...
