While they are at it, the government ought to declassify its Cabinet ministers' birthdays, too.
I Google-d, went to Wikipedia, asked Answers.com and dropped by the e-Media but could not come up with the dates of birth for all 32 ministers!
So if I had wanted to send that 1974 vintage to one of the ministers, I wouldn't be able to because I don't know when his birthday is, unless I ask him myself or I get that information from someone who knows.
I had gone looking for our ministers' dates of birth after reading The Scribe's latest take on the AAB-Dr M's feud, where he expressed concern about damning talk of a Malaysian minister who recently celebrated that happening 52nd birthday in Singapore.
My effort produces interesting numbers, though. Mohd Najib Abdul Razak is 52!! But his birthday's July 23, which means our Deputy Prime Minister turns 53 in 8 days (and which also means he celebrated his 52nd a while ago and not recently).
It certainly wasn't Pak Lah; the PM was born on 11 Nov 1939.
And not Rafidah Aziz (4 Nov 1943), Ong Ka Ting (15 Nov 1956), Samy Vellu (8 March 1936), Fong Chan Onn (25 Feb 1944).
Lim Keng Yaik's birthday was nowhere to be found but his profile says he graduated from the University of Belfast in 1964, so he cannot be in his 50s.
Azalina and Hishamuddin are both too young: she 43 years of age (31 Dec) and he 44 (5 Aug 1961).
So who cut his cake at Arabelle in Singapore on a recent 52nd birthday bash?
