Malaysia in Transition

As someone who belongs to the "Generation M" group - youths who grew up and spent their lives knowing only one Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad - this is what I wrote in this blog roughly six years ago;
Sebak rasanya apabila sekali lagi menonton klip video pengumuman mengejut tentang persaraan semua jawatan dalam kerajaan dan parti, termasuklah jawatan Perdana Menteri oleh Dr. Mahathir ketika Perhimpunan Agung UMNO, Jun tahun lalu melalui sebuah rancangan 30 minit di Channel 9. Dalam sedar tak sedar, masanya telah tiba. Masih semacam samar-samar lagi, masih semacam sukar hendak menerima kenyataan, atau mungkin memakan sedikit masa lagi untuk menerima kenyataan bahawa Dr. Mahathir bukan lagi Perdana Menteri Malaysia. Apa pun syabas kerana peralihan kuasa di negara kita berlangsung dengan penuh lancar, tiada kekecohan timbul.
Back then, a website, ThanksMahathir.com was specially created to dedicate our respect and love to the Father of Modern Malaysia. I wonder whether anybody in the Prime Minister's office has forgotten to do the same to Pak Lah, or perhaps many are eager to see him leave quickly?

I wish all the best to Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak as the newly appointed Malaysian Prime Minister.

p/s: I just realised that Samy Vellu has been the MIC President ever since my parents got married and still holding on to the post til now! I think Samy is now in a race with Taib Mahmud, to be the longest ever BN component party president in Malaysia. 3 UMNO Presidents and 4 MCA Presidents have come and gone, but the great Samy and Taib are still around!

But but, that's not all. If you combine the number of years of the Father-and-Son leadership of the "Democratic" Action Party or affectionately known as DAP since 1969 to date, any BN component leaders still lose to them, hands down. Lol!
