My 7th Year in The Premier Service

Wow, it's already a year after I first blog about my anniversary as a PTD Officer.

Hmm, suddenly I am speechless ...

OK ... the last one year I religiously followed our new civil service mantra "1 Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan". I came to work early (before 7.30 am) and leave work late (between 7.00 pm - 9.00pm). I also set my unit's KPI slightly higher last year so that I will be forced to achieve it by hook or by crook. I have to thank my former boss Eddie Wee (my former company in Kuching) for that ... you know in Chinese there is a saying that goes "Die, die must do."

Did I tell you I got Anugerah Perkhidmatan Cemerlang for the 2nd time last year? The first was in 2005.

Kesannya ... my health is really affected. Badly affected. In fact now I am having fever and flu but I need to attend Tan Sri KSN meeting to help all my top bosses this morning. Since 5th, I had never seen daylight (litterally).

To put more icing on the cake, two of my self initiative abandoned projects rehabilitation completed in November 2009. This is a silent victory and am happy when the purchasers took vacant possession last year completed with CF some more.

But it also put more white hair on my head. I wished for Dolly Parton's boobs not her hair ... somebody "UP" there, can you look into this matter?

So on the eve of the anniversary I was so touched when during my insurance agency meeting, two of my fellow agent friends backed me up when my Group Sales Manager criticised my "barely" there performance this year.

Madam Heng and Meena whom most of their clients are top gunners in the Government said that public service now is not like before. Everybody had no time for appointments or sales talks. To make things memorable was Madam Heng's statement ... "Wan, she basically has no life now you know. I've seen the way her and her department works".

I almost wanted to cry. I said nothing throughout the ordeal cause it is not easy to explain yourself over the "taboo" that still loom in the public service. But still ... it was the nicest thing I have ever heard on this special occasion!

... Even when my blogging style get more seriously lately, right?

Enoughlah with sad story ... so today I thought of celebrating it with a nice cup of "expensive" Cafe Mocha at San Francisco Coffee. A handsome guy with a hot smile attended to me.

"Madam, what's your order?"

I think I should consider that early retirement ...

Yoyop: Mine might be worse sebab siap dipanggi Madam lagi semalam. Rambut=helai lah.Sedihnya ... sampai aku demam, selsema dan kebas my upper arm. Ambik MC hari nie.

Ingat masa aku mengomel kat my ex KSU Dato Fuad that my hair dah putih sebab dia banyak suruh aku berfikir.U know apa dia jawab...

"Pasai tu hang kena pakai tudung Jaime. La nie orang pun dok konpius hang nie Cina kah, Melayu kah?"

Hehehe ... maybe I should turn blonde.

7 tahun dlm Civil Service belum lama, J. Kalau ada cita-cita nak jadi KSU mesti terus sabar. Org kata u must work hard in the service. I say u must work crazy and smart. How? U r oredi doing it.

Tentang akibatnya-rambut naik putih dan org panggil 'Madam' - ada org kata how old (or young) u look, depends on how old (or young) you feel. To keep feeling young ( depa kata) u must always be in love.Bila I fikirkan tentang film star yg tak dimakan tua macam Liz Taylor, BB, Joan Collins etc yg sentiasa ada boyfriend muda, munasabah juga.
U must keep young to attract the young...

Anyway, cantik dewasa dgn cantik remaja lain. Cuma the wise appreciates the difference. That's why wise young men often fall for the senior looking charmer and vice versa, hohoho.

Norzah, tu lah in last year's entry on my 6th year I dok sibuk canang2 kat org opis my 6th anniversary, one of my senior EO dengan bangganya announce it was his 32th year hehehe.

Bila baca entry ni semula macam tak best pulak. Too much sadness and stress. Maybe I have to find greener pastures. Maybe I am oredi in my comfort Zone that I malas dah cari kerja baru nak buat.

But kalau nak jadi KSU kena tau banyak benda ... BTW, tak pernah terpikir sejauh tu lah dalam career PTD nie.

Jett: Aku masih lagi "traumatise" hehehe

Ayat memujuk hati ... "kelak nya one day ada juak nunggah apek"

Tiba2 juak rasa San Francisco Cafe Mocha sik nyaman ... huhuhu
