Tan Sri Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, who is fondly known as Ku Li is the Member of Parliament of Gua Musang in Kelantan and is now the longest-serving member of parliament in Malaysia.
Ku Li was the Malaysian Finance Minister from 1976 to 1984, long before I was born.
I always met Tengku Razaleigh after the Friday Prayer but I’ve never thought of taking a photo with him before.
Then one day I thought that I must have a photo with him because he is my grandfather’s friend.
They met in England and Ku Li calls my grandfather, ‘Mad Cairo’ because my grandfather studied in Cairo for a few years before going to England to further his studies.
Ku Li is very nice and friendly and is very popular among the Malaysians.
After the Friday Prayers, there will be a long line of people who wants to greet him.
One Friday, after the Friday Prayer, I met him by the sliding door and asked his assistant to take our photo.
I’m so happy that I finally have a photo of me with Ku Li.
