Tun M and I part 1

The denim shirt that bears the old Malay Mail logo is dear to my heart. Every single staff of the paper was given one each when millionaire blogger Rockybru was the head honcho. When I was given the honour of covering the Athens Olympics in 2004, this was the picture byline that accompanied my stories. Notice the MM logo?

Since it is a treasured piece of clothing to remind me of the good old days of the paper, I wear the shirt only on special occasions. So on a beautiful Sunday morning, I wore it with the knowledge that I was about to interview and meet someone special.

... So meet the elder statesman, blogger, horse-rider and ex-PM.
