    U'll be getting it anyway.

    And there are civil servants out there whose combined income in December equals to 1mth's of ur pay.

    So its not exactly 'little'.

    Year end bonus? Frankly speaking, I'll rather think of hitting TOTO. That's more realistic, and practical.

    Not unless you won and found out about it on the 103th day and you should have got to collect your winning before the 90 days. Trust me I know..it just happen to me. If I did found out about it..I could have bought a 70-200mm VR lens !

    i think what i said is constructive from the perspective of a husband and father of more than 2 children and more than 10 years of marriage.

Very helpful to reflect upon each other contributions to the poll, as not many of us including me can splurge our hard-earned money just on the things we would like to have. All of us have different commitment to fulfill.

    I have to wait and see what type of bonus before I know how to spend it.

    Is it going to be peanuts or bananas?

    Come on Adam, being a HOD and us being civil servants, our bonus can't be much less than the 13mth AWS and 1 mth variable bonus lah! At least you can start planning what to get with the money from the 13mth AWS, and keep the variable bonus for rainy days. If you overspend this Christmas, no worry wat.. We still have our performance bonus in Mar'06. Definitely not less than 1 mth for you as HOD. And if you AGAIN overspend, ha.. there's still the mid-year bonus in June wat!!!! Kudo to the gahmen!
