Syed Mokhtar AlBukhary.

Syed Mokhtar Albukhary was the second biography I read after Tun Mahathir's.

Not as well known as other billionaires in Malaysia, Syed Mokhtar is the best product of the New Economic Model (NEM) introduced by the Government back in the 1970s for the Malaysians to share the wealth of the country equally among all races. In this book, the author uncovers all the secrets of success on how he took advantage of NEM in a true nationalist, spiritual and genius way that he is, from the 'kampung boy' to the richest Malay in Malaysia today.

He took us a ride in the business world, from rice trader, to a business mogul, owning the 3 huge groups, MMC, Tradewind and DRB Hicom, his relationship with Tun Mahathir of whom he called a mentor, his family and spiritual beliefs. He shot down the accusation that people randomly made (most Malaysians do) that he won all the projects because of cronyism, but instead he worked hard and won because he deserved it.

I would say that Syed Mokhtar is a man with principles. For whatever he did, whoever he met, he'll never go against the principles that he believed in, not even for millions of ringgit. I adore him for believing in Malaysians, the people and their products. And I hope that 1 day, majority of us will think like he did. A nationalist.

"My approach is simple. When I want to do something, I do first and talk later."

"I once heard a proverb that influenced me greatly. It tells of a seed that grows to become a tree with branches. Flowers and fruits form, and when the fruits are ripe, they become heavy, causing the branches to break and fall. The lesson for is that we must always remember the seed we come from, and be humble when blessed and share good fortune. Otherwise, we are likely to break and fall."

Dear Obama.

I took this post from a Facebook page, after a day when a psychopath shocked the world, as he shot dead 20 innocent children and 6 adults at a school in the States.
And I really think it is worth sharing.


Obama mourns the death of children in a shoot out at school in the US. "These were beautiful kids of 5-10 yr olds, their lives (22 of them) were cut short (words to the effect). They have an entire lives ahead of them; birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own...". wiping his tears

Kids are dear to us everywhere. the very same words can be uttered for those children of the same age who lives were violently ended in the 'killingfields' of Gaza.
We are not saying this to the Americans. "Give them a taste of their own medicine." God forbid. Our heart goes out to those children, their parents and families for such a terrible loss".

Just as we were devastated with what happened in the States, our hearts have bled profusely for our beloved children in Palestine who lost their lives from the weapons that you furnished from the taxes of your own citizens.

Obama... you were saddened because the future and the hopes of the schoolchildren were dashed by the gun man. But you were not moved at all by the children who has fallen in Gaza. because perhaps in your eyes. the latter are not worthy of any hopes and future.
