A goodbye

Terima kasih, Pak! I can't but agree with our President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, that our former foreign minister Ali Alatas was a diplomat, a figure, an educator, a statesman that we love. Written in the yesterday's The Straits Times that Singapore's Foreign Minister for Foreign Affairs George Yeo and his wife were at the Jakarta wake. Died of a heart attack at the age of 76, he was said to had been undergoing medical treatment at Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital since last month. Hhhmmm... I saw a man really looked like him at NUH about a year ago. I was there for my check-up appointment when I was wondering whether it was really him, the man on a wheelchair.
