COMMENT:TAN SRI MICHELLE SHOULD BE WANITA MCA LEADER
Our Bond Girl should go for Wanita MCA chief!!! hehehe
She's got all it takes as a modern, vibrant, international and smart-thinking chinese lady. She potrays a leader in many ways.
If a happy multi-racial Malaysia is what we want to continue enjoy here, Michelle has all the flair to help BN achieve this.
After all, most young chinese girls and ladies have alwys dreamed to be like her. A personality like MIchelle is the chinese that we want, moving forward to achieve modernisation, for the people.
It is not the chinese people but DAP (and gang) who is propagating unhapiness amongst we Malaysians!

People are happy talking about Michelle Yeoh's royal awards. She has been conferred the Datuk title (DPMP and SPMP) and then the PSM. The conferment of the Tan Sri title, perhaps, is because of her support for Barisan Nasional in the recent 13th general election. That was the conclusion perceived by many on Michelle Yeoh getting the award.
While I too am glad for the award bestowed on Michelle Yeoh for her contributions to the country, being among the 50 most beautiful women in the world and for her superb acting in films like James Bond, it crosses my mind Alleycat singer David Arumugam, who I recommended to be given the federal datukship, but went unheeded. However, he was later bestowed the datukship by the Pahang Sultan.
The contribution by Alleycat, especially David Arumugam, to the country`s music industry since 1970 was huge, having popularise Malay songs to Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
The band played for only three months in Hong Kong, but because their songs were a hit on the island, especially Malay songs, its contract was extended to more than three years.
Alleycats, formed in1969, has become a legend for Malaysian pop music and David Arumugam remained popular with songs like Sekuntum Mawar Merah, Sampaikan Salam, Suara Kekasih.
Besides being overwhelmed by the award to Michelle Yeoh, which is equivalent to the one bestowed on P. Ramlee, it brings to my mind a dramatist who cried when she met me.
When I was at a shopping complex in Damansara not long after I retired as a minister. She is Fauziah Nawi, a big name in the country's radio, stage and TV industry since more than 25 years ago.
I don’t know why Fauziah cried, but looking at her, I felt sad, thinking of how active and dedicated she has been to the industry, but until today, not a single award has been given to her by the country for her contributions.
As an artiste, Fauziah never feels sad, but she expressed in a blog on the recognition and appreciation given to her by Singapore sometime ago when she made a solo performance "Cinta Julia" at the Singapore Esplanade. The tickets were sold out a week before the show.
"While in Singapore, what touched me was when I saw pictures of my aging face at the Esplanade and several other public places.
"Perhaps, some people will get angry when I say it, but that is a fact. Outsiders appreciate our art works more," she told journalists in Singapore.
It reminded me of a song by P. Ramlee, "Dunia ini hanya palsu...." (The world is a fake).
