Neeza,
The new MB is my wife's cousin. Dengan my wife mmg dia rapat la especially masa dulu2, masa kami belum kahwin. Lepas kami kahwin, jumpa pun hanya waktu Hari Raya or kalau-kalau ada kenduri kahwin. I doubt he remembers me... hehheee. Tapi nak jugak tu tumpang glamer kan.
He himself came from a big family - adik-beradik pun ada 13 semua and then berpuluh-puluh anak buah.

I heard he's had some experience dealing with some state projects in Perak, and that was the reason the Perak Regency chose him, for his vast experience. in a way, he's quite a familiar figure amongst the royal family.

oh, one more thing pak Mior since kak Yan is related to him. is it true he's of malay-chinese parentage? heard he speaks mandarin well. and that makes him the obvious choice to helm the state government. dont you think so too, boss?

Mior Azhar said...

Bro Kerp,
I was quite surprised to read about his business deals as I didn't realise his business is that big.
Yup, you got that right, his mother is a Chinese but she was adopted by a Malay family sejak dari baby lagi. I'm sure they don't speak any Chinese dialect as the their mom also does not speak the language. To me, his mom is so typical Malay la - and very charming. So it was a surprise to learn that the new MB speaks Mandarin, Hokkien and Cantonese plus Tamil too.

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

sorry pak mior, but dont get me wrong. i meant to say he was involved, as in, appointed to handle some works FOR his capability as an engineer. so he must have done a great job that the Perak regency saw it fits to appoint him. I swear i wasnt referring to anything cronyism in nature, nothing of that sort.

and i believe he would make a good MB. clean, hard-working and most importantly, people-friendly.
