During Pak Lah's time, those were the good old stories about personalities like Patrick Lim, also more famously known as Patrick Badawi, who was said to have direct access to Pak Lah due to close connection to the son and the son-in-law. Now have a new Prime Minister, the son of Tun Razak, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib. Together with Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, our new PM lead by example, a capable leader who enjoys the pleasure of a harmonious family, flanked by a capable First Lady who is also shares the husband’s commitment to reform the government, buang yang keruh ambil yang jernih… In the era of Najib, the market sees the emergence of new players, actually old players being given new lease of life. Douglas Cheng and Desmond Lim, both Datuk, were said to be enjoying the patronage of the First Lady so much, their arms now reach into the deepest pocket of government’s coffer. Desmond Lim is no newbie in corporate world, famously linked to many stories about flying incumbent Transport Minister in his private jet to South Korea on Dec 2008 to check on baggage handling system, an overseas trip which was without the Cabinet’s approval. Of course, Desmond, knowing the game very well given his previous experience of working so closely with Patrick Lim, must now so expert in the game of pleasing top bosses in the government. Desmond surely knows where to sew his seeds as he is now in best position to be awarded the baggage handling contract. In addition to that, the Minister has also agreed to award Desmond the purchase of 38 unit of EMU via Direct Nego. Nonetheless, like the old saying, behind a successful man, there is always a woman. So easily we can imagine that behind a successful man like Najib, Kak Ros would be the loyal woman. But who should take full credit of playing the person behind the woman behind the successful man? This question has a two-word answer – Cindy Lim. Datin Cindy Lim. As the wife of Desmond, Cindy has a unique gift millions of Malaysian women don’t have – make best friend with the First Ladies. You name it and Cindy knows them by her smooth fingers, the late Kak Endon, Toh Puan Jeanne Abdullah and now, Kak RM. Some lady has all the luck, so that the husband can get insanely rich from government contracts. Government’s NKRA should also mention Cindy’s persistent and consistent achievements. But the biggest KPI score surely must go to Desmond, he was very focus in his effort and deliverables, i.e private jetting the Minister, Direct Nego-ing disregard of PM’s disapproval, landing government contracts almost at will. With Cindy’s close association with Kak RM, Desmond was able to make the most of it and continue to enjoy the windfall, knowing full well that whenever someone in the government is trying to block him or his bid was not qualify enough, Cindy will quickly do the ground work using her friendship with Kak RM and get things through. What become clearer is that Kak RM is becoming the Achilles Hill that might need urgent operation, just like the one in Transport Minister’s leg that was being operated. Also, Kak RM might want to take notice on the circulating stories about how Douglas Cheng is fast becoming the blue-eye boy of Kak RM. Of course, what’s wrong with being the blue-eye boy anyway? Except that link between Douglas and his gambling business! Is this going to be the footnote of the legacy of Najib being the PM of reform, a leader committed to serve all races and fighting to save BN, while his own BN (Bini Najib) is being associated with business tycoons who are slinging dirt all around the public administration and grabbing all the sweet apples in government coffer via illegitimate channels?
