A Tribute to Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu

I guess he was more than the Father of Development for Penang. By bringing in the MNC's in large numbers and putting up KOMTAR and the Penang Bridge in the 70's and 80's, Penang became a catalyst for the rapid  industrialization of this country and develop a penchant for mega projects in whole of Malaysia (in the 90's) under the 4th PM of Malaysia of you  know who!

But I must say that me and my friends would always be grateful to him as he has managed to create jobs not just for his generation but also mine and the generations to come. We Penangites don't really need to leave our shores in search for better pastures but in fact has been a haven to attract the world's best to come here.

 His visionary and pioneering spirit has made Penang to what it is today. That is why we Penangites opted for a radical change 2008 GE as what our parents did a generation ago in 1969 under Dr. LCE leadership. It was the same yearning which is to have a credible leadership, a man who walks the talk and a leader who would deliver!

We Penangites have been so fed-up with Dr. Koh Tsu Koon because even though he was Dr. LCE political secretary Dr.KTK did not possess at all the same spirit of his predecessor. He was a coward and a good for nothing Chief Minister of Penang. What a far cry from Dr.LCE!

With this I give my condolences to Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu's family and the rest of Penangites as well for having lost a legendary stalwart. May you Rest in Peace!
