Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew last visited Malaysia in 1989. The architect of the current modern Singapore has never step onto the soil since then, at least officially, due to obvious reason – former Malaysia Prime Minister, Mahathir, won’t allow it. And now that Najib Razak has become the sixth prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew who has close relationship with the Razak family paid a visit to the country and his visit was front-paged by all Chinese-newspapers. As expected the old dictator Mahathir wasn’t amuse with his presence and was as sarcastic as before about the visit. The fact that Lee Kuan Yew was given the welcome carpet as if he was still the Prime Minister of Singapore really anger Mahathir who still hates the senior Lee.
Lee Kuan Yew couldn’t help but to go down the ground to smell the current political sentiment ever since the arrogant and corrupt BN (Barisan Nasional, the coalition governing the country) lost heavily in the Mar 2008 general election. You don’t think this old guy came here for the local durian, do you? He may wish that his country’s intelligence didn’t possess the “evidence” linking Najib to Mongolian beauty Altantuya, if the claim that Singapore intelligence has a file on Najib was true. After all, it’s better to work with a devil that you know than a devil you don’t. In reality senior Lee would rather work with BN than the coalition of PAS-PKR-DAP. Furthermore it’s easier to tell a guy what to do by constantly whispering “I Know What You Did Last Summer”?
But the political landscape has since changed and Singapore needs to assess the situation (in Malaysia) in preparation for a sudden political change, again. The fact that Lee’s opinion after each of his visits to some states inclusive of Penang and Kelantan was given wide coverage as if he was the Prime Minister of Malaysia carries weights. Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and the former Chief Minister (the loser) Koh Tsu Koon immediately started the blaming game after Lee commented that the Penang state infrastructure progress very little since his last visit in 1989. It’s funny that the local politicians took seriously comment by Lee Kuan Yew but did nothing when the actual taxpayer complained on the same issue.
The strangest and amazing about Lee’s visit was none other than his visit to have a four-eye talk with Najib’s wife, Rosmah. Maybe it was the satay but when it was reported that the reason he paid a separate visit to Rosmah because she and her husband worked as a team and it was necessary for him to understand both members of the team, it raised many eyebrows. On the surface it seems the country is governed by a tag-team of husband and wife – Najib and Rosmah Private Limited (or Sdn Bhd). This is laughable although has serious impact especially on the business community. The last thing investors would like to hear is their money was parked at such a risky country. Maybe Rosmah was trying to show who the actual boss was and perhaps she was wearing the “Bossini” attire during Lee’s visit to her *grin*.
Of course you can’t beat the naughty talks that Lee Kuan Yew was actually flexing his muscle now that Najib has become the most powerful person in Malaysia yet Singapore’s intelligence has sufficient, well, you know what that is, to nail the husband and wife’s balls on the public gallery. If there’s a plan to control Najib’s administration remotely from Singapore, now is perhaps the best time. And to think that Mahathir was smiling from ear to ear after he successfully removed the sleepy head Abdullah Badawi. However I bet nobody would complain if Malaysia will become as developed as Singapore under Lee’s special “advice and guidance”, minus the corruption of course. But then there would be an old man sulking till the day he rest in peace, because nobody give a damn to what he has to say after his 22-year-rule that corrupt the whole country’s administration. The senile old man will not stop and will continue to belittle “Little Emperor” Lee Kuan Yew.
