    He also told people he briefly dated German actress Marlene Dietrich in 1997, 5 years after she passed away.

    Mahathir should turn his talent to become a medium.

    When Mahathir launched his book at a store, he autographed a lot of books freely.
    When MM LKY autographed, each signature costs the buyer $10k.
    Some things never changed ....

    Well, every politician have their hit and misses, like what our dear MM said about Malays and Islam recently.

    Was there any clarification about how MM was treated when he had to wait a long time to meet our PM (at that time).

    "In his 800-page memoirs, Mahathir wrote that he felt slighted during the visit as he was greeted only by a protocol officer at the Singaporean Prime Minister's Office and was put in a holding room.

    “I was made to wait for about 15 minutes and felt very sorely used. This was not the proper way to greet a foreign visitor of equal rank,” he said."

    Is this true?

    You have to give respect to Dr Mahatir for bringing Malaysia real progress during his reign. Not easy to rally such a big country with so much diversity, states and the polictics - he is a true leader.

    it's true you know LOL.

    only Abdul Razak and Mahathir brought about growth... but to a certain extent. all the other premiers after them just bungled things. Mahathir had foresight to remove the pegging of the Ringgit to the USD just before the 1997 Financial Crisis hit, and he already knew which country was going to be hit first.

    other than those times... LOL

    well. spent making wild goose accusations

    oh. plus the Comic Artist Lat loves to make fun of Dr M

    It's true that he brought impressive progress to malaysia during his term as PM. His policies are great, just that he has a bad habit of shooting his mouth off

    That's because Mahathir used a cheap ballpoint to sign.

    progress in malaysia has never been fair or well.

    my home state used to be one of the richest natural resources state from bottom of sea till above ground, but joining malaya..... the rate of progress over that few decades was so shameful.....
