I knew Mat (real name Mohammad Hadafi) since 4 years ago when we worked under same department but in different team. He is famous in our department due to his outgoing character and a very active person in our departmental community activities. He was known as Hadafi back then and now we call him “Mat”.
This Wednesday, we will be introducing PR day to the November Project Malaysia tribe.
Many of those already involved with November Project is aware of the mixed feelings that comes with the mention of the word “PR day”. You will either be on the “I love it” side or the “I hate it” side, there is no in between but it is as big a part of NP culture as the bounce, the hugs, the #fuckyeahs (woo yeah respectfully to the Worcester tribe). It has been referred to as a friend, a foe, a necessary evil, the core of my existence, a nemesis, judgment day and the list goes on. The beauty of this for us at November Project Malaysia is that we are all PR day virgins. First timers heading into this with excitement, fear, nervousness, confidence, anxiety or a simple “what the fuck is it?” because many of us don’t know what PR day means and what is in store for us. Let’s focus on all the good this Wednesday will bring; we get to all lose our PR virginity together, we will all PR and the first Wednesday of the month will never be the same again. By 6:00AM on the 5th of July, every November Project Malaysia tribe member will get to have their own nickname for PR day.
I first met Kendary in 2005, he is a subject matter expert for SBM in our region by then. To me, he is a quiet person but very knowledgeable in his profession. He is also my personal investment fund and retirement scheme adviser. I invited him to our NP_Pledge workout at the beginning of February 2017, since then he has become the warrior for Wednesday morning hills.
