Letter from the Prime Minister
Nah, that's a printed copy. He didn't exactly sent that to ME, like personally. haha
Me and a friend went there to represent our university (although the university sent other students under other organizations) for a Majlis Berbuka Puasa with the Prime Minister of Malaysia,
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
It was held at his official house, the Sri Perdana at Putrajaya.
Since the traffic jam sucked like hell, me and my friend arrived around 6.45pm, while the invitation letter says we must reach there by 6pm.
Yeah, typical VIP. lol
Our beloved Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak
It was a free-seating event, where around 700 other students from various universities from all over Malaysia are attending, and since we arrived exactly 3 minutes before the PM made his entrance, we swiftly sat down at the nearest, easiest-to-fit in table.
Err.. which is not the table for students.
But for the media. The people from media.
Journalists, cameramen, columnist, and also... a newscaster.
Me and my friend sat in the same table with Izwan Azir Saleh.
The guy from Buletin Utama at TV3.
He even made a live coverage during the Buletin Utama that night.
Did you watch it?
Since changing tables is no longer an option, we decided to stay there and enjoy the ride.
After the Prime Minister made his speech, and after berbuka with some kuih and stuff,
we went for the Maghrib prayers before going back to the table to eat the main course.
Come to think of it, it's quite yummy
Basically, the food is kinda okay. Nothing special.
I was expecting a roasted lamb actually.
During the event, as usual, i met with some old friends from other universities, made new contacts,
and also got to hangout with Michael Teoh, the co-founder of Youth Entrepreneur Malaysia, and some other youth leaders.
Me and Mike, and also with my ever-so-happy friend Clive
Oh and when i say youth leaders, not the JPP or the MP type of youth leaders.
These youth leaders are youths/students who are entrepreneurs and have their own businesses, founder of this, founder of that.
It's kinda cool to be having berbuka puasa with the Prime Minister, although not directly or personally with him, but hey, it's still great.
The PM also took time to chat with the youth leaders to show his support for youths and entrepreneurship, which is really a great thing.
Sadly, i did not manage to get a photo with him.
But hey, at least i got to take a photo with another great man.
That's Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing for you
After the tarawih prayers (yes!), there's a round of moreh.
Local fruits are served, and there's even a bubur durian with bread!
All in all, it was a great event, and it shows how the PM and the government supports us, the youths, to pursue entrepreneurship, as WE, the youths, are the leaders of tomorrow.
Let's play spot & win!
