TheStar: People just Khan believe it!
It look like our dear leaders are getting the kick out listing some people that he or she like to our tax payer money title without considering their achievement to the nation or the state. This raised a great concern on their mental state and ability to make a good judgment when big crisis happening to the nation such as today, the downfall of the nation economy.
Nevertheless, we can see some well deserved Nicol David and Lee Chong Wei awarded this title because of their contribution and hard work in achieving great success in international sports.
Only few well deserved people were awarded a high rank title from the government compare to lots that were questionable. We will see many more of ridiculous people given an honorary title that sooner or later will downgraded the prestige and the respect of it. I bet people from other country laughing at us and felt sad over our leaders’ mental state of mind.
