Life and Times of Kit Siang

Lim Kit Siang, a veteran in the Malaysian political scene, is now celebrating his 70th birthday.

I was fortunate to meet him in Melbourne during a Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia event with his son. As a youngster who joked about being a politician, he lived a live of purpose and may God continue to add years to his life to let him reap the fruit that he sow.

Quoting Cao Cao living in the era of Three Kingdoms China: "Circumstances make heroes out of people." Uncle Kit was born in the times of political turmoil but he didn't merely observe the changes. Just as Cao Cao has said, it is unfortunate to be born in times like this but to be the person who reunify and bring peace again to the land is of greater significance.

The office of the Opposition leader in the British parliament is called His/Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition. I must say Lim Kit Siang has played his role as a loyal opposition well, contributing selflessly to the cause of justice. He has endured hard times, but his fighting spirit lives on today.

Who else will there be another legend in Malaysian politics?
