Protocol oh Protocol

It has been more than a month since my hubby joined government agency and he is still adjusting to all the protocol in the government sector. Last weekend, for the first time I met my hubby's colleague at a futsal tournament. Even I can feel the awkwardness. Because of my hubby's level, everyone in the department has to call him Tuan or Encik and they called me Puan even though they are out of the office environment. The awkward thing is, when I tried to make a conversation with a person that is older than us, I do not know how to address them especially those who are lower level as they call me Puan. Silly isn't it?? I mean, last time I just call my boss by his initial...no salutation or what so ever. Maybe that is the difference of level of openness between this two sectors. We will still have to adjust to this protocol or maybe we'll just suck it in and have fun with it. Yerlah...bila lagi other people nak call us Tuan and Puan...wakakakakaka. Right?? So, might as well accept jer. uhuhuh. However, there are still other poeple who are at higher level....so we will have to do it also. eheheheheh
