23 February 2008 - I would like to apologize to all Malaysian that I couldn't do much to help you all out of the current economic turmoil. Trust me, I had done everything I can in my capacity as a micro-economic policy maker to help you all out of this hard time but I guess smart people doesn’t have a place in the government apparatus mechanism. I know things will be very difficult and maybe even ugly for many people for this upcoming three months, but do trust me, my heart will always be with those that are facing and about to face this difficult moment.
I promise you all that even though I would be out of the government micro-economic apparatus, I will always be an adviser to the decision maker at the helm of our state in any way. God bless you all and God bless Malaysia.
