I have to admit that Muhyiddin has never been my favourite politician.
Maybe it's because I felt that he's a bit "cold" as a person.
Nonetheless, I actually like his people that I know. I had good times with them, particularly when I was in Japan, South Korea and India.
Still, I somehow never really warmed up to Muhyiddin despite meeting him many times over many years including at his home base in Pagoh.
I was not even exactly cheering when he took over as PM after the Pakatan government's collapse that day.
That despite him being the crucial person who got rid off DAP and the gang from Putrajaya.
Then the Covid-19 crisis started.
That's when I began to look at Muhyiddin differently.
Ya, it was just the past few weeks that I really think the guy actually can do the job.
As far as I'm concerned he is doing well under the circumstances.
His team was also not doing badly except for some minor fumbles.
There were criticisms, of course, but that's normal for any government.
Muhyiddin himself seemed to be going all out and the way he carries himself, I believe he does instill confidence that we can beat this Covid-19 enemy.
For me, he's doing and saying the right things, so far.
Not bad at all.
Bear in mind that the guy is 74 and a cancer survivor.
And today he did something which touched my heart.
Despite his tight schedule and pressure of fighting the Covid-19, he still took the time to post this,
Regular readers of this blog should know that I have a weak spot for those with autism and their caregivers.
I'm glad that Muhyiddin as the PM cares about them even during this time of emergency.
Personally, that's the sort of things that count for me.
Back then, I was also grateful to Najib as PM because he and his wife took the initiative to set up Permata Kurnia early intervention center for children with autism.
Well, I hope we all Malaysians could unite behind the current government in this fight against Covid-19.
Forget about politics for now, as we need to save our country first.
I also hope that Muhyiddin will continue to provide good leadership for us all, at least until the fight is over.
Cheers and stay safe everyone.
