My guess was right. All England badminton champion Datuk Lee Chong Wei got a HERO's WELCOME at KLIA yesterday. He had the Minister of Sports receiving him as well, and also a hug from the minister, including flowers to grace the reception.
He was then feted by the PM at his residence, and BAM was granted an instant cash award of RM 2 million by the PM, supposedly to pay for some outstanding bills.
As for our soldiers, airman and sailors, just look at how difficult it is for them to get a recognition and reward for valour and gallantry, and mind you, in the face of the enemy and probable death.
Mej Nor Ibrahim bin Sulaiman TUDM (Retired) who has been fighting a lone battle with the 'powers that be' to earn some recognition and monetary reward for recipients of the gallantry award of JPP, PTU and KPK is still unsure that his 'fight' will ever be heard; let alone entertained.
