Spending public funds for a private jet?

COMMENT When former prime minister’s wife Endon Mahmood was fighting against cancer, she travelled to the United Kingdom for her chemotherapy treatment. As far as I remember, she took a public flight.

I am told that whenever she stayed in a particular hotel, she had a spot in the breakfast lounge where she would have her meal. She did not expect VIP treatment, but the waiters and waitresses at the restaurant automatically respected her and reserved the place for her.

Such was Endon, a woman of great honour and well-loved by Malaysians at large. She knew how to be chaste and remain humble.
