    You won’t see a better display of misguided effort.

    I am fairly convinced that in every government organisation in Malaysia, there is one department that has at least six guys who sit around and come up with names that also make sense as an acronym. There must be a committee that comes up with this.

    PUAS - Perbadanan Urus Air Selangor Berhad
    PLUS - Projek Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan
    INTAN - Institut Tadbiran Awam Negara
    MAMPU - Unit Pemodenan Tadbiran dan Perancangan Pengurusan Malaysia
    ICU - Unit Penyelarasan Pelaksanaan
    JAWI - Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan
    JAKIM - Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia
    SUHAKAM -Suruhanjaya Hak Asasi Manusia Malaysia
    SPA - Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam Malaysia
    PROTON – Perusahaan Otomobil Nasional

    It is one thing to have your FRU or TRF or FBI or CIA or DEA. But to have the acronym make sense, that requires genius. Or someone just has way too much free time or in my case, just plain bored with life.

    The PUAS team topped themselves lately by renaming their org to Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor, or SYABAS. Pure genius.
