"So You Think I'm Funny?" - Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad
Tun was building a boat in Langkawi. Being a celebrity of sorts, anything he did was welcomed and talked about. And everywhere he went, a crowd was ever present.
Building a boat was mega newsy for the people of Langkawi. he was constatntly asked about the name of the boat. "Apa nama?" "Apa nama?" (What's the name? What's the name?)
The lighter side of the former Prime Minister rose to the occasion and he named his boat 'Apa Nama'. I looked at Tun in disbelief.
"You actually named your boat Apa Nama? "Yes, I did," he replied cheerily. It took but a split second for the laughter from me. Tun just smiled cheekily.
