Our planet Earth is very beautiful.

There are so many beautiful places for us to visit and enjoy their beauty.

But these places will be gone if we do not take care of our planet and if there are wars around the world.

Meeting YB Dato’ Zulkifli Noordin

I(R) was very excited to meet one of my favourite politician, Uncle Zulkifli Noordin(L)..

I(R) was very excited to meet one of my favourite politician, Uncle Zulkifli Noordin(L).

During SEMAIAN, my big sister Kashah and I spoke to one of our favourite politician, YB Dato’ Zulkifli Noordin, an Independent Member of Parliament for Kulim – Bandar Baharu, Kedah.

When he was still a PKR MP, Uncle Zul went against the opposition’s stands on “Allah” issue; just like what Uncle Nasharudin Mat Isa is doing now.

Even though I often saw Uncle Zul Noordin at other MUAFAKAT‘s programs, this is the first time I spoke to him.

I had the chance to talk one of my favourite politician, Uncle Dato' Zulkifli Noordin.

I was very excited to have the chance to speak to one of my favourite politician, Uncle Dato’ Zulkifli Noordin.

It was so wonderful talking to him for he is very nice and very friendly.

I was so excited meeting him that I forget all the questions that I wanted to ask him.

It was something like how I felt the day I met Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on May 23, 2010.

Well, at the time I was a big fan of Anwar but not anymore after I heard his March 18, 2010’s speech at the London School Of Economics on YouTube .

Uncle Zul said that when he was studying in New Zealand, Uncle Zul met a man who gave him advices that made him a better person.

And that day, Uncle Zul advised me to always tell the truth, no matter what and stand for the truth.

While we were talking, AntaraPos’s reporters came to interview him.

After the interview, I asked Uncle Zul for an autograph.

Uncle Zul(L) wrote wise words in my autograph while I(R) looked on.

Uncle Zul also gave me his business card and that made me feel so proud.

I wish I can talk to Uncle Zulkifli Noordin again and this time I’m going to ask him some questions.

I am so happy and thankful to be able speak to a lot of wonderful people.

I hope that there will be better news tomorrow.
