Prime Minister's wife Rosmah Mansor today lamented that she devotes all her time to the rakyat that she even has to forgo her hobby - playing badminton.
“I like fashion, it's not that I don't like fashion, otherwise it would be very boring. (But) the rakyat have taken everything from me...
“Everything has been taken away from me, including my time, including my hobbies. I don't get to play badminton now because I am very busy doing things for the rakyat.
she said in her speech when officiating the National Crafts Day 2014 at the Kuala Lumpur Craft Complex. (Malaysiakini)
Her words made many "geram" (exasperated).
Such behavior is unbecoming the wife of a Prime Minister.
You called cutting ribbons, giving out drinking waters, jetting around and shopping "for the people"?
Given the VIP treatment and conveniences, financial and human resources, perks and Berkin bags, jets and cheques ... my wife, or any wife, can do hundred times better and more.
She has over-rated herself.
Be humble: Be careful not to parade your uprightness in public to attract attention; otherwise you will lose all reward from your Father in heaven. So when you give alms, do not have it trumpeted before you .....when you give alms, your left hand must not know what your right is doing (Matthew 6)
Be respectful and good attitude, it sets apart "class" and "no class".
If Michell Obama, Mrs Xi Jin Ping or Kristiani Herawati, wife of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said such thing, it will cause an uproar.... but not in Malaysia, because Rosmah is a very very "important" person.
It is all about CLASS.
做人应该谦卑： “你们应当心，不要在人前行你们的仁义，为叫他们看见； 若是这样，你们在天父之前，就没有赏报了。所以，当你们施舍时，不可在你们前面吹号，如同假善人在会堂及街市上所行的一样，为受人们称赞。。。当你施舍时，不要叫你左手知道你右手所行的。。”（玛窦福音6）
