Pilo: with RM110,000, can provide proper safe beds for thousands of homeless people around Malaysia.
Q: How come PNSB paid RM110,000 for your presidential suite in Honolulu?
A: I am not sure. It was all organised by them. And I didn’t ask. I didn’t even get to enjoy the suite or the facilities. I just used it for sleeping. I returned from the programme at midnight and by 8am I am up.
Pilo: last time, if not mistaken, YB Sdr Lim Guan Eng, Penang's CM fly economy class. Does this mean, his secretary sitting on the floor when flying?
Q: You say you are a simple man but people would disagree because you fly first class and stay at expensive presidential suites?
A: You must remember when I was the (PNSB) chairman. I have my entitlement. If I were to reduce my entitlement to what an officer gets then what is the officer going to reduce to? I am the chairman. There is the deputy chairman, board of directors, government officers going along. If I fly business class (not first class), then what happens to my state secretary? He will complain. If I am travelling alone it is easier. But I am travelling with a group of people and if I downgrade myself - it’s a problem for the others. But I never ask (for the pricey presidential suites or first class flights). Whatever they provide, I go along with. I just tell them to give me a full itinerary on these trips. I want a full programme with investors and companies.
Q: Why did PNSB give you a Patek Philip watch worth RM159,000?
A: I told them they shouldn’t have done that and I turned it down immediately. It was too expensive a gift. I was quite surprised. I never asked for anything that’s why I returned the watch. I told them you better sell the watch back and get the money back.
Pilo: err... haha. why don't i get any Patek Phillip. Batek Filip, I also don't mind.
Q: Are you suing the state government?
A: I am looking into it.
Pilo: looking nia.. not sue lar.. later korek korek korek... kena sue balik lagi susah.
The whole fairy tale here.
