Chief Minister of Penang

I got this from a forwarded email, checked out Mr Manager’s blog, and thought it’s a really nice story to share, though many of you may have read it elsewhere. Ning Baizura and her manager, Vernon Kedit Jolly aka Mr Manager were traveling to Penang when they saw YAB Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang traveling by himself without an entourage as would be expected of a Chief Minister. What surprised them even more was that the Chief Minister flew Economy, instead of Business, in line with his calls for cost-cutting. That’s leadership by example in every sense of the word. I salute you, YAB Chief Minister of Penang.

I can recognized the name but not the face. Even if I were to sit next to him, I wouldn't know it is him! Psst... you sure he is on a business trip and not ahem.

Yep definitely Leadership by Example and he should be the benchmark for the other leaders to follow :).

He has my respect, for sure
