Perseverance Pay

I had been suppressed by this person for years, just because that I'm a Chinese. He's a true racist (many of my colleagues can attest to this, not my words), and I had been referred as 'orang luar' or outsider, in the presence of my colleagues.

He joined our institution in 2005. Since then, i had to bear tons of workload but no increment for three years. My promotion through proper procedures including interviews and performance evaluation was on-hold for one and a half years, without any reason given. Bad words about me were flying around the campus but no one would believe what he said. Thank God for my action speaks louder then his word. Despite all these suppressions and defamations, I persevered. My colleagues supported me all these while, for some of them too, fall victim to this man.


My colleagues and some friends informed me of this report on today's NST (click here). I quickly logon to the internet and read the passage. It's about this guy being probed for forgery. I'm glad my ordeal will come to and end soon. Perseverance pay. And I thank God for teaching me this important lesson of perseverance and humbleness.

oh my gosh,

my friend said he was a timbalan naib chancelor at a local university before (if we are talking about the same person here)

she said, he was a stuck up, berlagak, jerk...

maybe its how god tested you, even though you have to face that jerk, at least the collegues and the friends you make help you go through this ordeal..

i hope that jerk gets sacked...

Josh said...

[Bud] I'm not sure if it's the same person. He's from our neighboring university. Yes, a stuck up and very berlagak.

I remember my ex-colleague (PhD holder) told me, he told her straight to her face when she said she want to resign."Nak resign biar lah, pergi sorang, boleh saya dapat ganti 10 orang". He don't appreciate staff.

I'm glad I have my colleagues and friends with me. They're precious to me.

adooii..really embarassing to have a so called leader like that :(

err..meja abe josh ni kemas nyeeee...kalah meja inah..malunyeee saya :(

Josh said...

[inah] Meja Josh x leh berselerak, nanti Josh rasa rimas, terus pening sambil tarik-tarik rambut sendiri macam orang giler.. hahahahaha..
I'm a tidy person. Rumah pun sama, takleh berselerak.

Ramai colleague lega sangat baca berita tu.

i have been teaching in private colleges for almost 6 years, including one where budlee took his degree (opssss) mati lah pech lobs. i have been all sorts of agony and pain and embarrassment and depredation, and everyday i pray that my ordeal will end, and finally, i finally got a place in a public u.

well its still the same. its not the institution, its the people in it.

but, the only difference is, i have no longer have to listen to the evil mantra..

"leave???, leave lah, satu orang pergi, 10 datang"

that always kill me inside. funny things is, it is us who made them, not the other way around. some stupid snob bitch will never learn their lesson, because their lesson will come later. they will just have to wait, and we must wait too. but in my case i did not, i leave, because i refuse to wait.

opsss. mati lah menyuarakan isi hati di sini katanya. hik

p/s: yes budlee, i was there, i experience all the banjir, all the pusing pusing around looking for parking, and all the fighting with other lecturers because lecture room which is hot because the aircond is always rosak was double booked.

by the way, do we even have a proper lecture hall pun.

budleee said...

fiebie

oh tidaaaaaaak... ade lecturer dari college kuuuu oh noo..


wait..... you better not be teaching biomedics class and then running off tgh2 pengajian.. sumpah seranah from us biomedic students still strong..


grrrrrrrr..

fiebie said...

nope, bukan health science tapi ala ala lah, ekekeke dont worry.

Josh said...

[fiebie] fiebie academician jugak ke?

You'd put up a powerful comment here.

ja-anuar said...

Hi Josh,

Pernah tanya dia,apa kurangnya jadi Chinese? Dan apa pulak lebihnya dia jadi Melayu? (Kak Ja assume dia ni Melayulah, kan?)Allah swt telah menjadikan hambaNya berpuak2 dan berbangsa2 untuk kita saling kenal-mengenal. Tak ada yg menjadi lebih hina atau lebih mulia hanya kerana bangsanya..

Beruang Madu said...

Akhirnya...bila semua orang berdoa... akn tumbanglah bangsat2 nih... ada muka dia ker kat mana2... Abg rasa bukan Josh sorang jer yg kena ngan dia.... kalau ngan Josh dia leh buat cam tu ngan orang lain mesti ngan gaya lain, kalau hati dah busuk tu jadi bangsa apa pun tetap busuk... harap2 dia bukan jawa... errr nak tubuhkan Parti Segala Jawa lah

Shah said...

Hahaha padan muka mamat tu. Orang berhati busuk tak akan ke mana kat dunia ni. Kejap aje ada kat atas dengan gunakan kejahatan dia, tapi nanti bila jatuh balik for sure jatuh gedebuk punya. Tak sabar nak tengok that jerk jatuh gedebuk!!! Hopefully no hanky panky takes place in the ACA investigation just in order to hide shame from your institution.

[danial][ma] said...

hej! at last after all the ordeal...and now time to celebrate...pay increament, post promotion...yeah! abg.bear, shah, budlee, pinky, inah, ja-anuar, fiebie, cherry chen, hairie, and all other friends, let's celebrate, josh wanna to treat you all....can huh josh? hehehehehehe...:) lalalalalala...

:: NbC :: said...

speechless... :-(

yesss Danial.. satay jomm..

Josh said...

[ja-anuar] Happy sebab Kak Ja comment kat sini. Terang-terang dia suppress yg chinese dan indian. Ntah ler, first time jumpe ngan Melayu camni. Selama ni Josh berkawan ngan Melayu (majority of my friends Melayu) semuanyer baik-baik dan sopan-sopan belaka, termasuklah kenalan-kenalan dunia blog ni.

[Beruang Madu] One of my colleague is his sedara, colleague Josh tu Jawa.... (alamak), orang Sabak. Orang-orang Jawa yg Josh kenal memang baik sangat, and very helpful.

[Shah] Dah jatuh gedebuk pun Shah, air-muka dia jatuh, gedebak-gedebuk lagi. Dengar citer dia tu berlagak sangat sampai masa kena interogate oleh BPR tu dia nak berlagak dan berlawan lagi, pastu kena belasah orang BPR. Tu khabar angin lah, ntah betul ke tak.

Yes, once I got my increment and promotion, semua blogger yang Josh kenal akan Josh belanjakan! Ikhlas ni.

[pinky] Jom, satay, 40++ cucuk sorang, kalahkan Budlee. Nak?

HairieKL said...

Hi Josh... akhirnya! berkat kesabaran ko kan. Buat baik di balas baik.. buat jahat akan dibalas juga.. tidak dr manusia, dr tuhan jua....

fiebie said...

Inah said...

Josh said...

[anon yang jauh kat UK] What he did on u was menjijikkan. Takpe, you're in VERY GREEN pasture already ma. Thanks for the offer, the thought of bringing home anything from UK is already so touching. hahaha..

Nanti bila balik Mesia bagitau ye, I'll belanja this time. Nak Danau ke tempat yg lebih meriah?

[Hairie] Ye ke?? Ala, bagitau je, siapa ler Josh ni. hehehe..

[Fiebie] Ye fiebie, nak tau apa? sila lah tanya. hehehehehe

[inah] Iye Inah, kalo dah confirm naik gaji dan naik pangkat bagai, sure Josh belanja.

ZEYN said...

Josh,

racism will never die in Malaysia, no matter loud our politicians bark!

a thought-provoking post, really.

i was fortunate to be sent to a missionary school for both my primary and secondary education. racism was almost non-existent. granted - the school was dominated by the well-heeled Chinese but i didn't really bother. i live in a "once-Malay-but-now-Chinese-dominated" neighbourhood for as long as i could remember.

anyway, it's wise to persevere.

coll blog you have here. will definitely drop by from time to time.

have a wonderful Sunday.

ZEYN said...

erm...i mean cool, not "coll". sorry mate, typo error.

Josh said...

Hi Zeyn. Thanks for dropping by.

Yes, racism will never die in Malaysia, and I'm not bothered by that either. I'll try my very best to be a good Malaysian, and contribute my best to this lovely country that I born into.
