PTD Revision

After browsing the web for some time, i came across this book which i would like to share with our readers. The book entitled 'Kerjaya Sebagai Seorang Pegawai Tadbir dan Diplomatik' was written by a guy whom i assumed to be a so called PTD and you may just click here for more details of the book.

Based on the outline of the book, it describes and explains what PTD is all about in quite an informative manner but rather shallow perspectives. I hope it won't ignites single sided passive acceptance to the readers.

Next, I am not pretty sure whether the author is rather qualified to penned this book since he is in service for a mere four (4) years. Of course we should pause and congratulate him for his effort.

Putting that aside, there is another tips which is quite interesting and more practical from this blog which i reproduce here... (it is a little bit harsh actually);

"PTD. What he f**k??

First thing that would come to your head is probably, a resort somewhere in PD. Or probably a short form for a uncurable disease, hence HIV or AIDS.

Well, none of the above is near to what it is.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the word PTD stands for Perkhidmatan Tadbir dan Diplomatik or when translated, Diplomatic and Administrative Officer.

Right. What is it again?

In the private sector terms, these group of officers would be known as MANAGEMENT and in Government terms, its BOSS. To the politicians however, the right term would be, MACAI.

Every year, a total of 300 PTD's are recruited in the Government service and is compulsory to attend an 11 day course before they are sent to the various 28 Ministries that forms the Government. They basically manage and the respective ministry and run it like your own company.

So why the hell would you want to be a PTD?

First of all, you oughta be lost. Career sense that is. Or just plain stupid.

Second ofcourse, the dire need to be.....a boss! Coz eventually, that's what you'll be. Boss kecik and Boss besar.

Third, is the ticket to Malaysia's over populated Datukship and Tan Sriship. You can ask your friends to start calling you Datuk when you're already a PTD. haha... sick.

So seriously, how do you be a PTD?


1.)Log in to the Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam (Government Recruitment Agency) and search for PTD recruitment. With a little IT knowledge, fill in the form that is downloadable from the website. Canggiiihhhhhhh......

2.) 2 months down memory lane, an invitation letter for you to sit for the Exam is sent. Advice: don't bother sutdying. Just read your Harian Metro and Utusan Malaysia. Exam will last a whole day from 9.00 a.m. - 5.00 p.m. I must remind the fact that you will have a sense of Dejavu of the whole ambience. SPM.

3.) So you sat for the exam, and somehow you grew a brain over the years. You're then called for a three (3)day assessment centre called PAC (PTD Assessment Centre). This, my dear friends, is called Bullshitting.

For 3 whole days, you...

a.) Pretend to be nice to people and work in groups.
b.) Lie valiantly to the Facilitators (Cause they evaluate your performance)

c.) Smile a lot cause there's shit loads of chicks/dicks.

4.) Congratulations, you have reached the final stage of the long awaited process. You're half way into becoming a Government Servant coz you're progress here was determined by your skills of bullshitting. Some of you may be aware of this and some of you, may have just found your ability to Cock and Bull.


Welcome to the interview. Now remember, you're already a hero (yeah, pigs fly!). But give yourself some credit and pat yourself on the back. Thank you thank you.

So there you are, in a room full of strangers. The competitive edge in you suddenly emerges and you smile to your "competitors" humming "F**k you" coz you suddenly realize, "shit, i want this job!". What hypocrytes!

You're number is called. You walk in to the room. You smile and sit calmly and whisk away that smirk and start bullshitting.

This process is called, "Cock Sucking".

So there you go. 3 easy steps to be a PTD officer. Upon accepting the offer of course and that is if, i mean if you are offered. (60000 people apply every year but only 300 is taken). Point of Information. So you're a hero/heroine. and may go back to your homes and have a Doa Selamat and sacrifice 300 cows for your success.

So there it is ladies and gents.

PTD - Peneraju bangsa dan negara.
