I was waiting at the airport last weekend to catch my propeller-engine flight back to Penang with my mummy near the departure cum arrival hall
(well, it's just a line between the two halls in the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah airport in Subang)
We were just hanging around there, chatting while people walk past us.
You know how it's like when you're in these crowd-infested areas =)
One by one, men in business suits walked past; a norm of businessmen travelling on a daily basis to attend meetings.
I almost missed him but I caught sight of his familiar face when he was looking up and guess who it was?
It was the Penang Chief Minister, Mr Lim Guan Eng who was walking right in front of me!
He was acting so normal that it was really possible to have missed him if you were not alert enough.
He was not even carrying a lot of bags nor was he escorted by bodyguards; he just seemed like a normal businessman who was just walking calmly out of the departure hall towards the taxi stand outside, and that, my friends, was what amazed me.
A state's Chief Minister, actually took a cheap budget flight (Fireflyz) to attend a business meeting and on top of that, he was without any escort nor using any emergency/priority lanes.
He did not even have a limo waiting outside the airport for him; he was just like you and me, following the norm of everyone and that's what makes him so admirable and respected by all of us.
What do you say to that?
Even my mummy nodded her head in agreement to this humble man who truly deserved our respect =)
