day 1789 – pay up

settled the winter term paychecks so me and my instructors can get paid for our services delivered more than three months back. getting paid for killarney is always so troublesome since they’re nit-picking on the smallest detail. the amount on my cheques doesn’t even justify how much time i spend doing the payrolls. glad winter term is finally dealt with, but that means it’s just about time to send in the spring invoices so i can start calculating payroll all over again

day 1718 – stipulations 


after sitting down and punching the calculator for two hours, we finally settled the killarney payroll. the amount paid doesn’t justify the amount of time and effort i’ve put into crunching numbers. what a relief to finally reclaim our long lost paychecks from the last terms; i can finally say this isn’t volunteer work. friday the thirteenth isn’t so bad when it’s double pay day. also got to enjoy a good ramen lunch with some of my favourite coworkers 

day 1662 – chinese new year celly

the year of the dog starts off with more food celebrations; chinese new year celebration at the office, then with family. stayed up late to make long distance calls to my grandparents and relatives in hong kong. it’s good that i hit the gym between the two chinese meals. i guess i’ll run and workout a little harder to work the food overload. and at the end of the day, i have a few red pockets to take home with me

day 1567 – cashing it

it’s that time of the month when i have to do my finances and bookkeeping. counting money is included in my responsibility and it’s something i do often. holding onto a stack of bill like such is quite the feeling but like any banker, it’s only for feel. i’m all ready to be in the numbers game and learning about strategizing my funds and investments that will be the pivotal point

day 1479 – quartz top

new quartz counter top and sink unit to show for as my parents continues to make changes and upgrades to the house. i wonder how much money my parents dished out to revamp the house this summer. the new layout is looking pretty rad but they don’t seem like they’re going to stop there since they mentioned about ordering new cabinet door fronts and new dining table top. there’s also talks about re-doing some of the living quarters on the top floor

day 1462 – raising

first day of august which is also the day my new salary kicks in. i worked my butt off for this day and i will continue to work even harder to make my case. my manager said that he intends to take me as high as i would like. i’m in it for the ride and still on have my eyes on the target working towards that unit of mine. there’s a reason why i’m constantly working; because i know what i want. it’s about wanting to build my own empire from the ground up

day 718 – long overdue paychecks

i am very happy to finally receive my long overdue paychecks dating back to january – yes, you got that right. really needed this money because i broke my bank lately and cash flow is as low as it has ever been. i guess the delay is partially my fault that i have been so busy and couldn’t clear the account when the spreadsheet of the breakdowns were given to me
