Don’t Feel Flattered if Ppl Calls You A Tai Chi Master!!!

In Malaysia, however (not sure about other Asian countries as well), apart from the above we have an alternative meaning for Tai Chi. If someone says you are a classic Tai Chi Master, do not feel flattered and thank the fella, especially if it’s your Boss or colleague saying it to you. Why?

Because it means that you are very clever at pushing aside jobs and responsibilities and basically avoiding being accountable for anything at all, even if that something falls directly under your area of responsibility or supervision. A true alternative Tai Chi Master is able to avoid and push aside all manner of dirt and recriminations thrown at him/her and make it stick onto others, so that he/she comes out smelling like roses.

High and Low in Govt Salaries


via The Sun Malaysia:

PETALING JAYA (Dec 21, 2006): The salary of the highest-ranked civil servant in Malaysia is 19.5 times more than his or her lowest-ranked colleague, according to 2006 data, Dr Lim Teck Ghee said.

This figure was far higher than in other Asean countries, as demonstrated by a 2004 study by the United Nations (UN) Public Administration Network (see chart). Malaysia, however, did not participate in this study.

“Data from other countries in Europe, Africa and Latin America on total allowances as a percentage of total salaries further indicates that civil service salary differentials in Malaysia have been considerably widened by the payment - to higher scale civil servants - of generous supplementary allowances not normally available in other countries,” he said in an e-mail interview.

The figure from Singapore looks wrong though…if I’m not wrong those in the higher posts earns more than S$10K/month.
