The Loaf. A "quality restaurant" attracts a certain quality of people, and so when Dr M launched his bakery at Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur this afternoon, the event drew quite an impressive list of celebrities, both the Siti Nurhaliza kind as well as the Vincent Tan type.
The bosses of Naza, MK Land, Country Heights, and Kencana were among corporate leaders who attended the launch. Former MCA boss Ling Liong Sik was also there. And celebrity bloggers, including A. Kadir Jasin, Nuraina A. Samad, Jeff Ooi and Marina Mahathir.
But pastries were the last thing on the media's agenda. After token questions on The Loaf, journalists asked him about the general election ("ideal time to call for the GE as everything is up: the stock market, prices, etc.), Bush's visit to the Middle East ("not beneficial at all to the Palestinians"), and the OIC, in which PM Abdullah is the chair ("go ask the person (who chairs the OIC - Pak Lah)").
"Don't ask me all these questions, please, I am just "penjual roti" (bread seller)."
