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.
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.
