Penang descendant of Bintang Tiga Lim Guan Eng was, or still is, in China during Merdeka Day, he had no reason to go there except to make a point that he is indeed a descendant of the bloody Bintang Tiga!! He went to China to tell his big boss that the Chinese succeeded taking another Malay state in Malaysia!
Only the descendants of the murderous Bintang Tiga at Malaysiakini can come out with another damaging story insinuating the prime minister of this country is irresponsible leaving the country on Merdeka Day. To begin with the National Day on August 31st was off, since the whole country was on leave due to Hari Raya.
The National Day for is year has been pushed forward to Sept 16th, to be celebrated together with Merdeka Day. Seriously the is no problem here, except some descendants of the notorious murderous Bintang Tiga at Malaysiakini decided to make an issue out of PM leaving the country -- for a knee treatment!
According to an officer with the Prime Minister Office, Prime Minister Dato' Sri Najib Razak had to go to Perth, Australia, to seek intensive therapy treatment for his knee that was operated upon recently.
"The intensive therapy will improve the condition of his operated knee. The PM is taking a short break but will be back in time to celebrate our National Day on Sept 16, and there is nothing sinister, irresponsible nor is there anything wrong in seeking a treatment so that the prime minister can ease his nagging knee problem," said the officer.
The officer added that it was an opportune time for him to go for the treatment since there was no official Merdeka Day celebration on August 31st.
So Malaysiakini, or rather Stephen Gan my friend, just apologise and tell your reader that you story was full of malice intended. For the record Perth has got a good program in sports medicine. Give the man a break!! He is also entitled for a downtime especially to recover from an operation!!
