FIRST MALAYSIAN-BORN MAYOR IN BRITIAN
Very warm welcome here,
In response to the message, Aim For Impossible, advocated by our YB Datuk Seri Idris Jala, another breakthrough record is achieved by our fellows Malaysian, Miss Helen Chuah, born and raised in Penang. She will take oath tomorrow to be the first non-English mayor in England. We, at this blog, trust all Malaysian will welcome of this great hero and feel proud of her achievement, which stands tall in the world stage.
The above news was reported in the Star, May 17, 2011 and we also take the similar initiative to spread this news to our circle of contacts, which we trust will give hope and confidence specially to our fellows Malaysian who pursue such a direction of success. This evidence has strongly suggested that lots of Malaysian have been trying to work hard to restore her former glory. Such fruitful outcomes had surfaced recently and well indicate that there are plenty of opportunities outside Malaysia, for us to excel in whatsoever endeavour we are taking because our knowledge is world class, as claimed by our previous achiever Mr. Ong.
It was also reported that Miss Helen Chuah, 61, who loves her curry mee, will be taking the badge and robes of the mayor's office of the city of Colchester in a ceremony held at the city's Moot Hall. This city is located about 100 km northeast of London. Both heroes, aged 60 plus have shown us that age is of no barrier in achievement and give rises of hope of second prime time for those who have missed out their 40-50 first prime time. As such, both of them have proven that "refirement" should replace retirement of the age of less than 60. Please don't get me wrong here, I am never against anyone who have decided to retire much earlier. We respect their decision and of course we do congratulate those who afford to do so.
She told Star the day before that she felt very honored and privileged to be elected as the first non-English mayor of this historic town of Britain, and would wish to foster ties between Colchester and Malaysia. She is truly a good spoke person who has the passion to promote Malaysian culture, food and possible business links as well. Well done, Helen and we all love and are proud of you. You truly possess the Malaysian spirit which always does the best for our country. We write to inform you that we are more than happy to will give you all our support, as 1Malaysia's spirit, we could.
We were told that she was a student from St. George's Girls' School in Penang, left to be trained as a nurse in Britian in 1971. She was described by her younger brother, Kean Chee, 58, a retiree staying in Bukit Jambul, as her enthusiasm in charity work had been a source of inspiration for his two sons. Here, we can safely say that we are also inspired by her as well.
Despite her past 40 years staying in Britain, she still has a close relationship with Malaysia by returning to her homeland every year. She even visited her former school and impressed the principal Shariffah Afifah Syed Abbas two months ago, whom she described as a humble and outstanding person.
No surprise that Helen's success story also attracted the attention of Malaysia-born Westminister City Council Chinese Community liaison officer, David Tan, who said he was happy to hear this good news, like all Malaysians.
One thing we feel sorry for her is that both her late parents and none of her siblings will be available there to attend and witness such a meaningful ceremony. In this connection, we at the same time, wanted her to know that she is not alone and she is always in our hearts.
