Interesting Memo to Employee

Today is rather a relax and stress free day to pass.. In another 10 mins, I'm officially off. But still have to work tomorrow. That is the worst part of my working life. Have to work on alternate Saturdays where you know your hubby is at home waiting for you. Anyhow, my mood today is still okay till now.. Today is another special day for Singaporeans too.. The BIG TOTO DAY.. I think the prize for today is 1 million. Have you got yours? Well me, ermmm, I didn't actually bought one until Winnilicious asked me and said that at least buy a chance for $0.50. Too be frank, I am always not that lucky and I know that the ticket will eventually be part of the rubbish in the bin. But in any case, I wish my friends and readers good luck and hope God of Fortune look up to your house and knock at your door.. *Hoping for one to knock my door too*...

Later will be going for sushi buffet @ Hougang Plaza with Princess Yvonne and hubby. It's gonna be another bloated dinner. Can't wait for her to come over to my office and head for dinner then..

Back to the topic I wanna blog about is regarding a post I came across and I've ask the owner of the blog for permission to copy over the post to mine as I really wanna share this interesting post to all my friends and readers. And it could be cos of this post, it brightens up my day. Oh! I can't forget to give credit to Winnilicious for the post. Here's the post..

To: All Staff,

As you know, the realities of the downturn have hit home and I am forced to introduce the following cost-cutting measures to help shore up our beloved company. I know you will understand that the pain is temporary and the gains will be there for all of us to reap when the company comes through these difficult times stronger… and ready to ride the next big
wave. So with immediate effect, all staff will be required to adhere to the following:

a. The cups on the two vending machines are to be recycled. Annabelle has already serialised them.

b. Sabbatical leave: Executives booked for New York will now go to Kukup in Johor Bahru instead. Senior executives can go further - up to Yong Peng.

c. Our chalet lease in Pulau Ubin has ended. However, as the management takes a keen interest in staff welfare, we have arranged with Francis (from Admin Dept) to rent out one of his rooms at Blk 923, Pasir Ris Drive. His flat was chosen for its proximity to the sea and you can still see Ubin from the window.

d. Entertainment claims: Staff will be required to go for a 30-min demonstration by Raj from Finance Dept, who will show you how to withdraw your credit card slowly from your wallet (58 secs), so that others at a business lunch will inadvertently beat you to it when the bill comes.

e. The Valentine's Day white chocolates (Deluxeur) which I gave out in January : Those of you who have yet to open the box, please return them (expiry date: Dec 2009).

f. Monthly Best Employee Award : The $1000 cash award will now be replaced by a box of Deluxeur white chocolates.

g. Annual Best Employee Award : The 14-day Disneyland/Hawaii tour and solid gold Rolex Oyster watch will be replaced by TWO boxes of Deluxeur white chocolates.

h. Medical: The Oxfordshire-Hopkins Medical Group will no more be on our panel. Annabelle will give you the address of Hong Tong Hong Medical Hall in Sungei Road. Bring you company pass for a 10% discount.

i. Country Club Memberships : Senior executives must return their membership cards to Annabelle, who will then register your name with Bishan Community Centre.

j. Transport Allowance : No reduction of rate! However, it will be paid on alternate months.

k. Gifts for clients : New choices. The Bohemian Crystal list will be replaced by the one from 7-eleven.

l. Annual Dinner & Dance : No change (March 20, yay!), but the venue is switched from The Ritz-Carlton to the void deck of Annabelle's flat in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10.

m. Bonus : This time, staff welfare comes first! Instead of the usual amount, we raised it up to $2 million. Each employee will be given a Singapore Sweep ticket. The draw is on March 5.

From: Chief Financial Officer

Isn't it cute and funny.. I just resist laughing.. Hope you guys like it.. Hahahaha.. Once again thanks Winnilicious for this post.
