- The former premiers cannot stand each other...YET! (see 2 August UPDATE below)
- YPB did not check the dates carefully prior to booking the function.
- Pure BAD luck!
2 August 2009 - UPDATE / INSERTION:
An Old friend whom I met during the dinner passed a remark as to why I didn't juxtaposed on the "dua harimau tidak boleh berada di atas satu bukit i.e. 2 tigers cannot be on the same hill" Comment made by the YPB Chairman i.e. Datuk Yazid Othman during his explanatory speech as to why the VIPs did NOT turn up!
To this, I can only pose to Datuk Yazid....
"betul ke ada 2 harimau atau sebenarnya ada 1 singa tua & 1 harimau 'jadian' ?
MY Weltanschauung 177sen worth:
YPB should write an apology letter to all corporate sponsors for the NO shows!
Considering RM10,000 was spent on the table...the lack of an usher to see us to the table or even a welcoming Committee is a bit bewildering.
...to end a so-called Patriotic night with a Hindustan/Bollywood song....pergghh!
.....Chinese food was good though!
