Takde ape. Diorang bagi I ambik je. Apanama? Ah...Sponsor. Ya tudia.
There! It's out!
The official reasons.
The Malacca Chief Minister's record-setting wedding banquet for his son and 130,000 guests was paid for by......(insert fanfare here)...Tataaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!......
Apparently, caterers and "other businesses" sponsored the event. I will bet that you never knew that the Malacca CM, Mohd. Ali Rustam is sooooooooo loved by Malaccans. The CM insisted that the banquet was not a lavish affair and that nobody was forced to attend. But 130,000 guests is still a mind-boggling number. However, according to the CM's special secretary the reason for the high attendance was very simple. Okay, I think you better sit down for this...ready?
"This is the first wedding ceremony for the chief minister’s family and every Malaccan wanted to take part. Even estate workers wearing slippers stood in line to shake hands with the bride and bridegroom."
Does that make you want to scream NIAMAH!!! ?
Go ahead. Stick your head out the car window. Open your office door.
Feel better now? Thank you.
