In conjunction with his visit.......





This picture is to remind Barack Hussein Obama where he started off in life.
In Indonesia there is a small statue of him erected in front of a school he attended when he a was a young lad.
Then I came across this huge poster of him promoting a new satay galore stall.
If I have a chance to see him I would say "apa khabar pak."
Here's to a further good bilateral relations between the two country. I hope many years from now successive American diplomats will still remember Obama visits to Malaysia.
I once told, a many previous years ago, a US information attache in KL who is a friend that there is a land scheme in Malaysia named after a first  US president who made his official visit to Malaysia.  My friend later became the US ambassador to Mongolia. He said to me:" No way man." And I said to him:"Yes way!"
He wasn't aware of such visit as he was not told,  since Malaysia was not that important enough for the US history book?  Obviously the visit by President Lyndon Baine Johnson was not etched in the memories of many Americans of our two way relationships. I hope Obama visit will not be the case.

LBJ's speech:

"Your Majesties, the Honorable Prime Minister, Your Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen:

"I am delighted to be here in Malaysia. I feel that I know you because Malaysia, like the United States, is a federation of States which were once colonies of Great Britain--and because Malaysia is, like the United States, a nation of many diverse peoples, different religions, and different cultures. Here, as in America, you are working to reduce racial tensions so that all men may live in peace with one another.

"Malaysia, like the United States, has been making great social and economic progress, based on the concept of personal initiative. That concept--that a man should be free to make the best of his life as he sees fit--is one that the people of America cherish.

"But though I feel that I know you, I have come here to learn from you. I know that your nation is a model of what may be done by determined and farsighted men in Southeast Asia, and in other parts of the world. You valiantly subdued a Communist insurgency in your own nation. And then, from the very same room where you once planned battle strategy, you planned the works of peace. You began building a free and prospering countryside that can relieve the poverty and the apathy upon which communism so often thrives.

"Your achievement in this respect, I believe, has the greatest significance for our struggle in Vietnam today. You have shown that military action can stop Communist aggression, and that while the aggression is being stopped, and even more strongly when it is stopped--the peace, as well as the war, can be won.

"Your example offers us hope for the future. It is a great pleasure to be here and to see it firsthand.

"Mrs. Johnson and I look forward with great pleasure to our stay with you.
Thank you very much."

*(The President spoke at Subang Airport, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In his opening words he referred to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, King of Malaysia, the Queen, and Tunku (Prince) Abdul Rahman, Prime Minister of Malaysia.)
