The Most Fearful 70 minutes in Syed Mokhtar's life

Assalamualaikum and hi! Today I would like to tell you an episode of Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al Bukhary's life. Hope you will enjoy it!

It was the most frightening 70 minutes for Syed Mokhtar when he met Dr Mahathir, who was a Malaysian Prime Minister at that time. The meeting held on January 16, 1997 which has lasted for 70 minutes has become a very unforgettable memory in his life. When he meet Dr Mahathir , Syed Mokhtar has been treated unfriendly. Dr Mahathir did not smile when he greeted him. Syed Mokhtar felt very nervous when he sees the serious face of Dr Mahathir. Dr Mahathir did not even ask him to seat. So he decided to sit and present all the documents he had prepared on its business at Kedah even without being asked.  After 70 minutes passed Dr Mahathir still did not speak even a word. Syed Mokhtar decided to leave all of his documents and walk out of Dr. Mahathir’s room. This incidence has become the most terrifying 70 minutes for Syed Mokhtar and will be remembered forever. However, the fear was eventually paid off because he has successfully implemented projects that he presented to Dr Mahathir. I think maybe Dr Mahathir has his own reason for treating Syed Mokhtar like that. Still, if I was him I might have fainted in front of Dr Mahathir. That was so nerve-recking, I can tell you.

From nobody to somebody


I guess all of you can guess what the ‘From Pauper to Plutocrat’ means is. Well, if you know Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary’s early years, I am sure you will get that. But for those who did not have any idea who is this great man before, are you thinking I am putting that title for nothing? Well, you should consider thinking about it again J

Do you ever think someone who used to be a shepherd now has becomes a money bag?

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic (btw magic is haram anyway :p); it takes sweat, determination and hard work, that is what Colin Powell said. And it is so true. What Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary get now doesn’t come easy. It takes plenty of sacrifices and tears. Yah I know, nothing in the world come free right? But this one is totally worth it!

Same like many other famous billionaires, Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary also never went to university. He spent his time helping his mum planting and selling vegetables in the market. He is also selling roti canai to support his family’s life. He's also used to help his father herding cows. We can see that this billionaire comes from a less fortunate family. But who is he now? A billionaire man!

So, if we (who can afford college’s fee) ever think that we can never be someone, think twice. Money doesn’t come easy. It takes hard work. But if we work hard for it then we will get it, believe me. I am showing you a great role model here for something babe!

Till we meet again inshaallah J
