**Edited : 6th June, 2007 : Berita Pak Lah kahwin Jeanne Abdullah ada kat sini**
It doesn’t seems right for me to publish my next posting marked ‘humour’. So, I shall do this compulsory mark of respect.
Long time ago, when I was the Executive Secretary, my job pretty much involved serving coffee and polish shoes for VIPs (from BN to DAP to Keadilan 🙂 ). During my company Chairman’s daughter wedding, touted the wedding of the year in the whole island, I had to accompany Datin Seri Endon on the red carpet and pinning that oh-so-troublesome corsage. My only sentence to her was : YB Datin, please watch your steps. (pointing to the folds in the red carpet). At that time, Pak Lah was the Minister in the PM’s office and he being an ardent golfer and from Kepala Batas was pretty close to my company’s big bosses.
The next time when I actually ‘see’ her was during BN’s wins during the election. What made me very fuzzy was how loving and close our PMs, past and present with their wives. Dr. M has always been my hero, not only for his sharp tongue but the love he showed to his wife. And Pak Lah too showed the same devotion. I remembered well when the result was announced, the first person he turned to was Datin Endon. (actually, I was waiting for Pak Lah to announce a public holiday, hence staying up late to catch election results)
I pray for strength to our beloved PM. May he continue to lead the country with the same fervour despite the loss of Datin Endon which I am sure is his pillar of strength. Rest in peace, Datin.
BTW, errr….got public holiday or not, hah?
