Meeting the Prime Minister and the First Lady of Malaysia

Today, my parents and I met the Prime Minister (Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak) and the First Lady (Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor) of Malaysia.

This meeting came about after my mom passed my poetry book, Creative & Funny Poetry for Kids, to Datin Seri to read; my mother believes Datin Seri is not only our First Lady, but also our Mother of Love for the children of Malaysia.

A few weeks after passing the book to Datin Seri, my mother received a phone call on the appointment.

I think our Mother of Love wanted to give me some encouragement to keep up my spirit of excellence in whatever I do, especially after completing my first poetry book.

I am really, really touched by her kind gestures to lift up my spirit to the climax.

It was a very exciting event meeting with our Prime Minister and First Lady. I performed one of my poems to them. They brought along some reporters of the media to introduce me to the people of Malaysia to show the “Malaysia Boleh!” spirit.

The Prime Minister and the First Lady also read my poetry book. The Prime Minister read my poem, Autumn, in front of everybody and said it was very good.


Here are some of the photos my father took during the event.   PICT0556 That’s my mother, me, Datin Seri Rosmah, and our Prime Minister. They were looking at my blog.

That was me acting out my poem, “If I Did Write a Poem”.

That was me doing the ‘Mighty King’ pose in the poem. :D

And that was Datin Seri Rosmah giving a present to me. Thank you! (Datin Seri told me to share it with my little brother)


Update (12:30 am 11 July 2009): I just noticed that posted the video of me performing the poem I mentioned above. Here it is:

Here is the words to the poem, as seen in the book.


(My voice did not sync very well with the audio in the laptop, because unfortunately, the sound from my laptop is too soft, so I couldn’t match it well. Fortunately, the audiences, the PM, and the First Lady enjoyed my performance and laughed aloud, nevertheless. I hope you will enjoy it too!)

Update: (11:30 pm 11th July 2009): Today, my blog was down due to low bandwidth limit and too many visitors. I’m sorry for all the trouble and have fixed it now. I hope you didn’t mind.Ohoh

I have now got more photos to show you. Thank you so much, reporters for snapping them.

I am extremely grateful to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib and Datin Seri Rosmah for giving me this opportunity to meet them.

I am also very grateful to the reporters for taking interest in me and my poetry book, and for taking the time to interview me. Your confidence in me encouraged me very much too!

I would also like to thank you, readers, for supporting me. Each of you played a part in giving me this opportunity to meet the Prime Minister and First Lady of Malaysia.

Cheers! :-)

    Well done, boy!
    You have published a book at such a tender age when the common everyday boy would be playing football in the rain.
    You even got to meet the PM & Mrs PM!

    Your achievements are an inspiration to me.
    Many will look up to you but I hope that you will not lose yourself in it!
    Keep it up!
