Can you name our ministers?

COMMENT | “Ma, what’s the name of our minister of science and technology?” my son asked the other day.

I went blank.

“You forgot is it?” he nudged.

I tried very hard to remember.

“It’s okay Ma, I Googled. It is Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred,” my son said.

“Ah!” I responded, pretending it was a eureka moment.
I lied.

At that instance, I realised I had no clue who the science and technology minister was. Heck, I couldn’t even visualise his face.

Dumbfounded by my own ignorance, I tried doing a mental quiz.

“Who is the minister of consumer affairs?” I asked myself.

Nope, I did not know the answer to that one either.

“How about the minister of public works?”

Nope. Not a clue.
