State Secretary Visit
After a meaningful lecture from my missus on my two previous posts, I will now resume my serious Nadai Nama nature to talk about development in Sri Aman. No more 'The Boy Who Cry Wolf' postings she told me. Yea.... she's the boss and so I have to abide by the directive. Incidently - the Civil Service boss did come knocking on Sri Aman's door last week. His intention was to see what is the progress of development in Sri Aman. Development is serious matter and so is the visit by the State Secretary of Sarawak to Sri Aman as his decisions carry weight especially on development initiatives. His arrival would mark my fourth month in Sri Aman and I had to make sure everything was in order, what more with the just ending Hari Raya it would be hard to restart those in holiday mode. Most of the staff are on holiday and on leave. But I should say bravo to most of the Civil Servants here because they canceled or deferred their leave to assist our Resident Office in making this a smooth and memorable visit for the State Secretary.
