Konpem dah

Assalamualaikum & Goodday
Last week i got my confirmation letter. So now, no more acting, I'm a confirmed M44 officer. Alhamdulillah....it's all God's doings.
Ekceli i've known about the confirmation via someone i never expected. THE SECOND BIG BOSS!!!. He SMSed me on Monday : Tahniah anda telah dinaikkan pangkat ke M44 sejak 30 Oktober 2007!
I was like terperanjat beruk you know. Not because of the confirmation, but because of the sms. I never tot the boss cared about a low level officer like me. Good for him lah.
When you are at the bottom of the chain, and someone higher up send you a simple sms like this, it means a lot lah. It might a PR exercise for him, but i really appreciated it. Thanks so much lah Dato', you made my day lah.
Just to explain how promotion in the government works. When you are promoted, you cant straight away assume the post, you have to go a probation period. During the probation period, you are just an acting officer for that post/grade. You have to fullfill all the prerequistes (i.e exams, courses etc etc) before JPA can confirm you.
So now, my friends are talking about promotion again. To me, i'm excited about promotion, but it comes to the actual work, i think it might be too early for me lah. To be in middle management is not easy, you think working in government is easy eh? No way man. I know you guys are skeptical, try it yourself then only you'll know.
Anyways, I'm all game for promotion, sapa taknak wei.... I just hope that it wont be that soon. At least wait till Akif is 1 year old. Then it'll easier to plan. For now, i just want to concentrate on the job yang kat depan mata nih. Kalo ada rezeki ada la, kalo takde pon aku redha :)
------------------------------
Some observation on Malay Dilemma
I realized that some Malays actually hate themselves for being Malays. Most of them usually practise very little of the malay culture and is more open toward life.
Moreover, they expect the not-so-open Malays to accept them as they are. Unfortunately, Malays are Malays, and it is hard for the not-so-open Malays to accept something that is too not Malay. Hence, the conflict of hating oneself being a Malay - presure from the society.
To me, the Malays need to change their perspective toward life, especially the malas & PHD attitude. But changing too much is also unwarranted lest we'll lose our identity. Be like the Japanese, they are sooooo advance in everything and yet preserve their culture and heritage.
Come on people, if you want to be different, dont look down on those who cant accept the changes just yet. Explain and justify it. And for those who's still stubborn to accept changes, dont flatly reject it, try to listen to the explanation. Offcourse they are not always right, but you too might make mistakes once in a while. Compromise la beb....

Tahniah wei...... semua cakap aku jadi kenyataan.... it goes to all of our friends. Anyway.... confirmation bukan hanya bergantung kepada kursus dan exams shj tapi atas budi bicara pihak atasan dan juga pengesahan secara verbal daripada kakitangan bawahan kita.... so seeloknyer ko sms pada x-boss n new bos to thank them and mintak ler Hanim masak2 sikit untuk jamu staff ko kat sana... aku infact baru jer buat tadi tp takat contribute duit sebab on the 6th nie naik pentas for KC .... syukur untuk kiter semua.....
