Congratulations Tun M! 

Japan just awarded our beloved prime minister with the highest honour they can give to a person of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s calibre. According to The Star, the man was bestowed with the “Grand Cordon of the Order of the Paulownia Flowers” by Emperor Akihito of Japan. 

They have given this award to Tun M because he has contributed a lot in strengthening the “bilateral ties” between Malaysia and Japan. The prestigious conferment ceremony took place at the Imperial Palace in Japan at around 8.45am (Malaysian time). In Japan time-zone, the ceremony took place at 9.45am.

Why is this award so special, you ask? 

Well, it’s because this award is the highest honour Japan can give to a leader or statesman of a foreign country for their contributions towards strengthening bilateral relations between their own country and Japan. Besides that, their contributions to the region are also taken into account for the award.

What makes this conferment even more amazing is that Tun M is now the third Asian leader to receive the illustrious “Grand Cordon of the Order of the Paulownia Flowers”. Fuyoh, power lah Dr M! Besides Tun M, this award was also gifted to the late Lee Kuan Yew, former prime minister of Singapore and former Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh.

We are very proud that Tun M, our prime minister, has managed to bag the highest award from Japan for his efforts in strengthening bilateral ties between Malaysia and Japan. That said, we only hope that Tun M will achieve more awards as such in the near future. Congrats Dr M!
