It was indeed a pleasure to meet a very down to earth gentleman like Dato’ Raja Nong Chik yesterday over a dinner which was organized by All Blogs Malaysia (Thanks to Abang Rocky)

Infact it was my second time meeting Dato’ Raja Nong Chik, the first was during an ASTRO Awani – ‘Pesrpektif’ programm where I and Dato’ Raja Nong Chik was a member of the panel, in fact that meeting was good enough for me to note that this was the type of man Malaysians need and I must congratulate YAB Dato Seri Najib for appointing a learned and a enterprising man like YB Dato’ Raja Nong Chik as a member of his cabinet. His appointment into the cabinet would surely make YAB Dato’ Sri Najib’s agenda on 1Malaysia realized faster.

Following are some of the inputs that I have gathered about YB Dato’ Raja Nong Chik;

  • His vision to make Kuala Lumpur not only a world class city but also a caring city is indeed commendable. He realizes the fact that poverty exist in the city and that steps are being taken to eradicate them as early as possible, thus, the CARING CITY

  • He believes that bloggers can help in promoting Kuala Lumpur and in fact he has offered to assist in organizing an International Conference for Bloggers. This offer was welcomed and accepted immediately by All Blogs and we can look forward for an exciting conference soon.

  • I was also impressed with his simplicity and how he explained that it took him nearly two (2) years to seek an appointment to meet a Minister. It shows at times, its not like what people think – if you are powerful and famous you can easily meet minister or top politicians.

  • I see him as a very simple man – net very much as a politician but more as an NGO person. However, I must say that UMNO must utilize his talents and ability to build a stronger UMNO.

To YB Dato’ Raja Nong Chik – I wish you all the best and I am sure that with you we can develop and build a stronger BARISAN NASIONAL.
