GENERALIZING G-MEN BY CLOTHES

Hey guys, didcha get the email with the 'kissing in the lift' attachment? I got the forwarded email. Then later the tabloids published articles with "Pegawai tinggi kerajaan... dengan kakitangan bawahannya...."

I don't know who those people really were, but why'd everyone think they're government oficials? Because he's middle-aged and balding and his clothes although a suit, don't seem branded? And why is the lady a 'kakitangan bawahannya'? Because she's wearing baju kurung and tudung?

There we go, generalizing g-men by their clothes!

But seriously, if you think all g-men have only this one style (or lack of style?), that's not entirely true. Some of us do dress better, albeit very modestly, as the g-dress code requires us to do so. But that don't mean us ladies don't wear pant suits or skirts and blouses, although on our pitiful salaries, designer labels may not be that much accessible lah.

Aiyoh, I'm so gonna update my wardrobe soon hehehe :-)

Tapi tulah, kang pakai baju mahal ada style, pakai kereta besar, orang kata ni mesti dapat duit rasuah ni, kalau tak takkan mampu... generalizing g-men again!

Hi Jie
You are what you wear. My dad dulu suka pakai bush jacket. Masa tu, orang2 berpangkat di jabatan kerajaan saja yang berpakaian begini (beats wearing a tie, he had said).
These days, those wearing bush jackets are the security boys i.e bodyguards. So how?

Salam Jie,

My being in not-G dept since I started working (lama dah), I can safely say org2 swasta too do not really dress to impress when going to work. Unless those front-liners with direct customer facing activities will somewhat be required to. Like me, I don’t even bother to put on lipstick after zohor prayer at work.

Hi X-M,

Betul la bush jacket tu :-) It's a matter of perception la kot ek? Rasanya cara dressing ni depends on the individual la. Some of my clerks dress in RM300 batik every other day, on their RM900 salary, and then makan biskut kering for lunch... what for?

Hi nj,

If that's the case, wonder why people generalize that only g-men don't bother to dress nice ye? Hehehe :-)
