I heard lots of stories from my fellow colleagues here. I've been patient enough to not write anything about it here before.

Truthfully, being in PUAS and SYABAS is 2 different environment. Hell I don't care if both were good or challenging or demanding in a good way, I wouldn't have to say anything here even. I'm not saying changes are not good. I'm very open to new ideas but I've seen so many that really disappointing.

If you read anything about SYABAS officers being rude to the customers in the papers, you read it right. Those are all new staff hired by Puncak Niaga. Yap you read it right again. Puncak pays these people's salaries, not SYABAS, yet we are all known as SYABAS employess. And I just have to mention that the salary margin between former PUAS employees and new SYABAS intakes is too high. Almost RM1000 in difference for the same post and the same experience for juniors. Seniors?? Much much more. If I have to take this further, then issues like bonuses, yearly salary increase would raise up because it's all based on current salary figures. Umm... I won't talk about this in details, it's just demoralizing. I for one don't feel like we're valuable assets to the organisation. We contribute to the company as much as and sometimes much more than the new staff, yet former PUAS employees don't get invited to attend talks by Tan Sri, even when it's held to further establish rapport among SYABAS organisation.....

I've heard too many seniors shouting at his/her staff in front of his/her colleagues, some new staff being just plain disrespectful, giving orders without really understanding the operations & procedures. When things don't go their way they blame us. Yes PUAS was a failure but it wasn't because we didn't work our asses off but it was because of fund shortage. Now when Puncak comes in, they splurge and splurge and they got good publicity which I think is excellent (I'm in for the good of the company). We have able & experienced personnels (former PUAS employees) here and they don't know how to work with them harmoniously. I don't think they understand what manners mean, or the importance of being nice to fellow colleagues. Too many The Apprentice's influence I guess. The show is good but it should be digested with some wisdom lah. New staff here forgot to look on Islam's views on everyday working life - work could be a form of ibadah if you know how to tackle it. For most of these people, I respect their titles but not so much as a person. I wish this adjustment period will be over soon so we can get on with our lives and everything will be back to normal.

I could go on and on and on but that would be pointless. I'm glad that I'm in a department headed by a very able En. Mohd Suhaimi Rafie. Now he's a good leader and a good examples to his fellow staff on how to take things positively and motivate ourselves. As long as we get our work done and perform steadily, then we're happy.

Okay I'm going to enhance my copypasting skill. Heh! I love the lyrics (and the song) so it goes here.

Get To Me
by Train

Well an airplane's faster than a Cadillac
And a whole lot smoother than a camel's back
But I don't care how you get to me, just get to me

Parasail or first class mail
Get on the back of a Nightingale
Just get to me, I don't care just get to me

Prokeds, mopeds take a limousine instead
They ain't cheap but they're easy to find
Get on the highway point yourself my way
Take a roller coaster that comes in sideways
Just get to me - yeah

Go on hitch a ride on the back of a butterfly
There's no better way to fly to get to me
I look around at what I got
And without you, it ain't a lot
But I got everything with you, everything

Maybe you could pollinate over the Golden Gate
Take a left hand turn at the corner Of Haight
And then a sharp right at the first street light
And get yourself on a motor bike

And if you think you'll get stuck in a traffic jam
That's fine, send yourself through a telephone line
It doesn't matter how you get to me, just get to me

Go on hitch a ride on the back of a butterfly
There's no better way to fly to get to me
I look around at what I got
And without you, it ain't a lot
But I got everything with you, everything

Cause after every day
The wind blows the night time my way
And I imagine that you are
Above me like a star
And you keep on glowing
And you keep on showing me the way
Shine Shine Shine
