  1. Isn’t that a symptom that all is not well with his health? May he recover and take a good rest. AAB’s health not that good either.

    Man propose, God dispose.

  2. Semoga kesihatan Tun pulih seperti sediakala…

  3. Tun is a man that high spirited.

    He is a true blue survivor and missionary.

    Not many people dare to question the sanity of present government, with exception of him.

    He is truly Malaysian statesman.

    He risk all to fight for Malaysian sovereginity that has been clearly compromised by the present leadership.

    For that i salute him.

    dear Tun get well soon.

    This is very inappriopriate for me to say, but We need You. Malaysia Need You.

    Pak lah is clearly a PM “yang paling membebankan rakyat di dalam sejarah kepimpinan Malaysia.

    prices skyrocketing everywhere and he seems to lose control.

    Lee Kuan Yew and son must be in deep relief to get an incompetent leader accross the straight.
