But then, it won't be for me anytime soon!

From 2011 onwards, it is expected that Brunei would be gaining it populations when His Majesty (on his New Year's Eve speech) granted the extension of maternity leave for mothers.
Now, all mothers in Brunei who are either working in the government or private sectors are given 105 days maternity leave from 56 days leave previously!

105 days??! That's equivalent to 3.5 months!!!
I can't imagine if my married female colleagues are all pregnant and they are having 3.5 months of maternity leave. Of course I would be happy for them but then it also means shortage of staffs!
The 'single' people (like me, myself and I) would have to work extra considering that almost 80% of my colleagues are female!

Now I think it's a good time for me to seriously think about marriage! LOL!!!

5 knock knock:
