Snippets – Happy Birthday Mahathir
Assalamualaikum & Good Day..
Why I put it snippets? Mmmm maybe people will thinking that I’m start writing about politic in my blog…. But for me politic is more on encouraging people to join some political party or to get support from public. But Mahathir is our former Prime Minister and he not joining any political party already. So this post is just to recall something that happened already. Honestly I don’t like politic. Our politic in Malaysia is full of crap and not even one politician nowadays in Malaysia really serve to our country. Even in Mahathir era, we heard some rubbish here and there but at least we get something better right. We are now using almost all the outcome that came from his brilliant idea; we shopping at KLCC, using Putra LRT or Monorail to go to KL Central, then using fastest train to KLIA for just 28 minutes. So just my two cent.. Wish all the best to Malaysia, remember, we are not the most develop country among the developing country in Asia already.. So something have to be done now.
” No other name has been so closely knit into Malaysia’s recent history than Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Fondly called Dr M, he was Malaysia’s longest serving Prime Minister, occupying that seat from 1981 to 2003. A man of all embracing vision, one can say without a doubt Malaysia’s former premier always spoke his mind.
On December 20th, our ‘Bapa Pemodenan’ turns 83. In celebrating his birthday, we take a look back at the premiership of the much loved and often controversial Dr M.
