My missus alerted me to a report by Mr.Vernon Kedit Jolly, the manager of Malaysian songstress Ning Baizura in his blog Mr.Manager where they spotted Penang's Chief Minister YAB Saudara Lim Guan Eng, flying on economy class from KL to Penang!
The way YAB Lim Guan Eng puts to practice what he has been preaching about not indulging in excesses that usually were the norm of Barisan Nasional leaders really makes me a firm believer that I did no wrong in supporting the Pakatan Rakyat in the recently concluded 12th Malaysian General Elections on March the 8th, 2008.
Syabas YAB Lim Guan Eng!
I read somewhere before that you are emulating the way Khalifah Umar Abdul Aziz ruled and also along the lines of how the Kelantan Menteri Besar Tuan Guru Datuk Hj Nik Abdul Aziz bin Nik Mat remained humble and avoided splurging unnecessarily using the taxpayers money for his meager needs.
May the Almighty bestow upon you His Wisdom and Blessings so that you will prove to be the best Chief Minister that the State of Penang has ever had since Independence!
I am grateful that my home island @ Penang the Pearl of the Orient has you as our Chief Minister!
May Penang grow in all ways and get back to being the shining gem of the nation.
Mr.Vernon @ Mr.Manager. Thanks for sharing this refreshing information with the Blogosphere!
