The boy and the man. This picture shows the Chief Minister of Melaka Idris Haron with an old "hallowed" photograph. "It reminds me to be humble," he tells the Star columnist Jocelyn Tan. Find out why the black-and-white is so keramat for Idris, who recently came under fire from some quarters for a blunder thatn nearly got some trainee commandos and their trainers being awarded with the Pingat Gagah Berani for getting lost at sea, h e r e.
p.s. I don't think Apanama and the other critics are going to change his mind about Idris too readily, though. We all have seen too many "humble" politicians turned into monsters after having tasted power.
