the stories that happened yesterday


A public figure who shall never be forgotten


"If you want to go horse riding, you must learn how to balance yourself. But if you want to run a country, you must learn about money."

Tun Dr Mahathir

I must say that I am impressed with him in person. As our official chancellor, he came today to give a public lecture regarding the 2020 Visionary. The place was pretty occupied that I had to fight for my seat!




It was my first time attending his talk. At the age of 84, he looked good when compared to my grandparents. He's a vegetarian, maybe that explains a lot.

I remember the day he retired from being a PM. I cried. He was such an influential leader with a sharp mind, who could have ever replace him I wonder?

His lecture was awesome. It wasn't boring at all because his words were very interesting, he spoke with such grace and humor. He mentioned that he loved horse riding, so he told us this story of a Turkmenistan PM who gave him a horse from a very good breed. Good to the extend that Napoleon chose only these breeds during any of his wars.




Tun even hired a guy from Turkmenistan just to take care of the horse. However the horse died. So the Turkmen guy told his PM about this. Then the Turkmen PM gave Tun another horse. The horse died again. He told us this in BM and had to lower his voice a bit so the Turkmens here wouldn't tell their PM and send Tun another horse again. But the Turkmen PM meninggal dah larh. HAHA

He even told us how much he HATED doing financial. One thing I learned from him was that no matter how much you dislike a particular matter, it doesn't give you the excuse to do badly in it. Take him for example. During our 1997 financial downturn, despite his lack of interest in financial, our country emerged as the fastest crisis recovery in Asia. How's that?

I love that guy. He spoke with such wisdom that I still think it's a loss that he isn't our PM anymore :(
