Obsesi Abreviasi

I've been having flu since Sunday. With on and off fever. I was given two days medical leave on Monday and Tuesday.

However, Monday morning I had to attend a meeting with officials from the company which manages the Soekarno-Hatta airport. Corrupt officials.

I was at the meeting venue at 11-ish with two lady directors from the joint-venture company which I work for.

The venue was in one of the buildings inside the vast airport complex. It was my first time stepping inside the rather old looking two-storey building. We were greeted by a lady officer (whom I had met once before, also corrupt) who was smiling from ear-to-ear. Probably she was expecting "ang-pau" from us. Sorry to disappoint you lady, I don't operate like my boss. And by the way, wasn't it a fortnight ago you received an envelope from my boss?

So, this corrupt lady officer led us to the meeting room. Along the way, I could see staff standing around having casual conversations and there was even one staff playing games on the PC. None was doing or seemed to be doing any serious kind of work.

But the office setting was of an acceptable standard. Idak le hudduh bebenor. Wayyyy much better than the local immigration office. I've been there three times (the immigration office). Strangely, it looked like a Turkish bath. Not that I've been inside one but I've seen how they look like on telly. Lebih kurang macam tu le rope immigration office deme ni.

Ok. Back to the meeting.

The meeting could be done with in a matter of less than 10 minutes but it dragged on to almost 45 minutes. I don't know whether they had done it deliberately in anticipation of getting "ang-pau" from us. I was cursing inside. Tak nampak ke hidung aku ni meleleh-leleh hingus tengah flu. Banyak benor pulak acara balas pantun nih.

I was feeling restless. Just like a kid would be when forced to sit quietly. I started reading the meeting agenda distributed earlier on. I stifled my laugh. Here's why.



"Anak makcik keroje kat mana?"

"Tu ha.. kat lapangan terobang"

"Apa kerojenye?Pangkat apa?"

"Alah.. tu ha..keroje dalam unit bisnes lapangan terobang. Pangkatnye tinggi le jugak. Deme kata ASSMAN"

People here are so obsessed with abbreviations. They would coin a new term by abbreviating two or more words.

For instance, from the pic above:

KADIV = Kepala Divisi
KADIN = Kepala Dinas (or unit)
ASSMAN??? Whaddya think?
