Do you wanna be AFDLIN SHAUKI's personal assistant?

I have been working in this industry professionally for about 16 years, but i realised that it actually finally took off when i had proper representation in the form of a manager and a personal assistant. With their help i am able to focus more on the creative work while they concentrate on the nitty gritty stuff, which includes taking care of the product, ME! and Liasing with the clients.Being a bit spoilt now i think, i don't know or cannot imagine how i ever did without these people.

At first i was Managed and P.A-ed by my wife for for a coupled of years, then realising that we had a problem because we couldn't differenciate when we were 'Artiste and Manager' and when we were 'husband and wife' it had to be stopped before something worst happened. Next, my wife would just manage me and my sister in-law P.A.-ed for me for awhile. My sister in-law was wasted in that position because she is capable of sa much more. She is now one of my main producers in our company and my right hand man. Before she stop P.A.-ing me, i met my current manager, SHIMA.

It wasn't until then, 6 years back, that i found somebody solid who could do the two jobs as well as my previous managers if not better.

My current Manager/PA is an extraordinary woman. She started out as only a wardrobe assistant, eventhough she has a diploma in Fashion Design, when i first met her at ANTAH UTV while I was still shoooting BILA LARUT MALAM and in one occassion when we were brainstorming for sketches, i asked for suggestions and out of all the production crew that was there the only person who dared to give a suggestion was her. I was shocked initially, but when i got to know her a little better i realised that she had drive and ambition.

I offered her a job to become my personal assistant and to start learning to manage me, something she has no knowledge whatsoever about and she took up the challenge with a lot of courage and the eagerness to learn.

I told myself, this girl is gonna be somebody someday because she has got the attitude of a mad person and is willing to give anything a shot. It wasn't easy for her in the beginning, because everything was new plus i am quite hard on people when it comes to work solely because i want them to learn.

In this six years, besides managing me, she is also currently my 2nd Assistant Director on my film shoots and she occasionaly does production management for my company. All these skills she acquired by being around the right people, asking the right questions and experiencing production and management first hand.

Recently she expressed to me her desire /dream / ambition i.e. to be a FILM DIRECTOR!!!... wah lan terror or not terror.
Personally i am not surprised. She has the passion to do anything she puts her mind to and it would be wrong for me to be selfish and not support her natural evolution into better things.

So, with my commitment in supporting her to reach her goal, i have decided to lessen her workload to let her concentrate on things she wants to do. She will still be managing me but i am now left searching for a new personal assistant.

So if anybody is interested to venture into the world of AFDLIN SHAUKI and learn from him whatever he knows about the industry please send your application to selambakodok@gmail.com

pyerudz said...

Dear people, if you really are a kodok, please understand. Jangan kasik pening kepala chip kodok kite... only apply if you fulfill the requirements.
He has set the standard. It's either YES or NO. Kalau siang2 dah tau NO, simpan je la power tu. Part tu je dah kantoi requirement No. 5. Betul chip?
So kodoks out there, dont be a statistic. Rezeki ada di mana2. Chiow!

morakimo said...

Takziah to PM.

I agree kalau boleh buat "Realiti TV" e.g. "Who Wants to Be the Next P.A. (Pembantu Afdlin)".

Silalah rekomen kat TV3 ke, NTV7 ke, Astro ke, mesti meleteup punya!

Farlander said...

Alfatihah...

And condolence to our PM...

Bro Afdlin, criteria dah met (international passport kena renew lah pulak... ) tapi a fan of Star Wars ada dapat extra points tak? Hehehe...

salimah said...

Assalamualaikum,

Baru discover this blog today. This is very interesting because i'm one of your fans. Compliment to you. Saw your daugthers' photos. They are so adorable.

Wassalam. Keep up your good work.

kookabooras said...

Alfatihah.... td ade dgr sorg org kuat Pemuda UMNO maut dlm nahas kat simpang KLIA ketika on da way melawat jenazah D.S Endon. Alfatihah utk beliau juga... tentang carik PA ni, baik bro buat The Apprentice la. Selain dpt duit dr sponsor n duit show, boleh dpt P.A. Tp musti bro nak pakai cepat kan. hrmmm.. But I think bro xleh amik fan jd P.A nanti x jd keje namenye. Kene cr yg betul2 commited pd keje P.A ni.

Eyna said...

Al-Fatihah...

and

Al-fatiha ... rest in peace dear lovely mother endon ..

Sharifah Md. Kassim said...

Ramai yg sokong idea I buat realiti show. I suggest, U buat angle yg agak suspen sikit...

1. Kasi situasi yg pelik2, perhati apa yang kodok tu buat.
2. Kasi idea utk parti/celebration tapi budget tersangat kurang, tengok brapa kreatif kodok tu.
3. Buat candid sikit, suruh member2 famous U berlakon kasi dia masalah, tengok reaksi dia.

Macam2 lagi idea I.. kalau sebar kat sini, dah tak suprise crita U. Looking forward to the reality show!! Teringin juga nak apply, tapi hamba terlalu jauh di selatan. Kalau nak buat show kat S'pore, boleh contact I. ifah03@yahoo.com
Buat ya, jgn tak buat!!
Salam.

pizzarebus said...

thru this blog i'd like to send my condolences to Pak Lah, his family, the Malaysian Government and all Malaysians,including the KODOKIANS (Malaysian or not) for having to lose a great member of our society..lets give a mometn of silence and prayers to her so she will rest in peace in her deep slumber.Malaysia looked gloomy as it even rains non stop in the near vicinity or the burial.

al-fatihah...

Amby_OFFsPrinG said...

walaupun saya bukan m'sian tapi saya berdoa semoga roh beliau dicucuri rahmat dan di tempatkan bersama orang2 yang salihin.

AOn a different note, are my eyes playing tricks on me? The lord of kodok sedang mencari2 PA?? wah duh! tapi dayum! umur kurang 3 tahun pulak. oh well....

paan said...

Stuju tu kodokers yg lain..

The Yoga Instructor said...

I think I have all the qualities required except for No. 1 (but I think that I think like a 28 years old nevertheless I think that I look like an 18 years old) except that I want to apply to be your Personal Yoga Instructor, boleh?

min superhero said...

i am kekodoxxx..average converse on both language..and baru gak bwat passport..meet all the requirements except the experience...How lor??

yasminjazilla said...

Salam Chief Kodok,

First, Al-Fatihah to Datin Seri Endon Mahmood. Pak Lah really has a trying year this year - first losing his mom, then now his wife.

And back to the vacancy ad, Chief Kodok, I meet all the requirements except experience la kan.. tapi kan.. tapi kan.. tapi kan... ada ke orang buat part time benda benda cenggini?

Tak lepas la tu...

Anonymous said...

Sesiapa yang appply must have passion for what are about to do ... kalau saje nak pass time ...tak yah ler ... reality show pon bukan real sangat!!!

Furthermore working with the LORD of KODOKS going to be tough but kalau ada passion it's going to be a lot FUN!!! and rewarding ...

All the best to you guys & gals ....


Salam Takziah buat Pak Lah ... i can't imagine what he is going thru right now ... May Allah gives him all the strength and wisdom ...

To Lord KODOK ... InshaAllah will watch the movie...

RamblingRose said...

Afdlin, yeah heard that you are quite a hard ass to work with. But then...I think i'll probably try my luck. We'll never know, we might be a match mad in heaven. No experience in the entertainment industry pun boleh ka...??

Good Luck to everyone yang mencuba, and Good Luck to Afdlin in choosing.

Chrystal said...

hey there..i would really love to try out but i am sure u woulnd;t take in someone as young as 21 right? but i certainly believe that u shouldn't gauge a person by their age..it's only a number to me..what is important is inside them and their capabilities to handle difficult state of affairs...I know my above statements sounded too formal or more like poyo but that's what i feel la..so how abang adflin? is it alright if i give it a shot? anyway I am a chinese....no porblem witht hat right? i kinda failiar with malay artistes because i do followup the entertainment industry in malaysia as well..so that's it la...waiting for your reply..

nikiffie said...

Really...really wish I can apply for your PA but....my family comes first nowadays...takdak rezeki nak kerja dengan Afdlin ...ada hikmahnya somewhere tu..besides...hehehehe..might just loose my 'cool' attitude when I'm eye 2 eye with AKO !!!

Inn said...

now who say one doesnt find good opportunity reading blogs? hehe. if i send in a resume, this would be the second job i'm applying via blog annoucement. the first one was for a ful time nanny position. the lady changed her mind in the end about hiring a full time one but i guess things do work out to the best interest of both parties. so lood luck to you.

mafiaries said...
