Tun’s OK

13 Jan: Really good to know that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is ok and resting at home. 

The shock many Malaysians felt over the sudden death of Serbegeth Singh, at the age of 61, is such that we really are in need of some good news, any good news, that concerns our mortality. The passing of a dear old brother in journalism, Abdul Wahab Mohamad Ali, hit some of us hard. He was, like Serbie, only 61. I knew Wahab during our reporting days back in the 80s and 90s. He was with national news agency Bernama and I was reporting for Business Times. Mahathir was a much younger prime minister but older than Shebby  and Wahab were when they died. 

Such is life, you don’t know when death will come to end yours. The good die young, the best live forever. 

Get well soon, Tun. Recuperate in peace.
