  1. Oh, boy, it brings back a lot of memories — I was playing the guitar singing Cliff Richard’s Bachelor Boy to win a runner-up prize in my high school talents night. My mother wanted me to play only the piano on classical pieces like Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Chopin … but, like most teenagers at the time, I rather played the guitar on rock-n-roll. Moreover, none of my friends played the piano. I was the oddball in the group. I learned to play the guitar in friends’ houses and never dared practiced it at home. Those were the days. In reminiscent, how sweet they were!

  2. Lee Kuan Yew said at one time that Tunku had fast cars and slow horses. As for you Dato you share your knowledge and plenty of it with others. Funnily both of you can be described as Anglophile to some degree. You run, maintain and write in your blog. Tunku had to step down as PM engineered by young turks Mahathir and Musa Hitam, possibly in connivance with then DPM Abdul Razak, who subsequently became PM and DPM respectively. He retired relatively poor and wrote weekly columns in the Star newspaper for a long period of time under the title “As I see it” to supplement his pension income.

    I am sure you may not even be one -eighth rich (if at all) as Mahathir and Musa. The darts thrown at Tunku were truly painful. I believe no dart has ever come your way – touch wood. Keep it up!

    • Hawking Eye,

      I am not rich. This is what I wrote on FB to my student who is a monk.

      ” Thank you,Sanh Chetra, ,my friend and a Man of Peace. I am touched by your thoughtful and kind remarks. We have to do our best in whatever we choose to do.. Given the right ATTITUDE, Character and personal resilience in the face of adversity, we can make everything possible. Never give up or quit. I have taken a lot from society throughout my life. Now I feel I must give back as a sign of my gratitude to my parents, my teachers and professors, and my bosses and close friends, not forgetting my wife Dr. Kamsiah Haider for their wise counsel, guidance and encouragement. I have stop taking long ago and am now giving back. Remember what I said to you yesterday when I quoted Gandhi–there is enough for everyone’s needs, but there is never enough for someone’s greed–and that is true. We must show compassion for the less fortunate and help to educate them. Education in the end is the empowerment of the individual.”

      The above sums up my creed. Regards, Din Merican
