Tun Mahathir visits Moscow

Tun Mahathir was actually in Moscow for some work, but Kelab Umno Moscow sent in a request for him to meet with Malaysian students who are pursuing their studies here and they got lucky when Tun said YES! ;)

Unfortunately, the embassy gave limited seats to those who want to meet the legendary Tun Mahathir. Only 300 seats from 2000 of malaysian students all over moscow. So, everyone gave in their names as quick as possible to the student bodies hoping to get seats. Alhamdulillah, I was one of the lucky ones whose name got picked to experience this once in a lifetime event. ;)

Tun gave us an inspiring speech. How we should repay the community once we become successful because it is from the community that we become who we are. There are a lot of us who went overseas and decided not to come back and work, but the way he put it, I don't remember the exact words, it just went straight to my heart why should contribute to our country, why we should work in our own country. It's all because we should contribute to our own community, the people who are the reason why we are here in the first place.

Well, enough of me blabbering. Here's some pics! enjoy! ;))

I was so starstruck at this time until one of the embassy staff had to tap me to move. lol!

Shaking hands with Tun Hasmah. ^.^

another moment. even when everyone was already going off the stage. The person in the middle is the Ambassador - Dato Zainol Abidin.

Me and bB in the bus heading back to the hostel.

Some pics are from my friends in facebook. I didn't wait until Tun left though because bb suddenly had a stomach ache. >.<" oh well, seeing him is already a rare opportunity so I'm still grateful. ;)
