The truth is often avoided.
Salam Dato',I can still recall an embarrassing moment I have had back in 2004. I am the type of person who is kind of slow in recognising faces. I was on my way back home from London, when I saw a fellow passenger whose face was very familiar to me. I time tu tgh kelam-kabut, pasal apa dah tak ingat sangat, so I decided to seek assistance from this familiar face. I addressed him as "Encik.." but he buat selamba je, he was helpful.Then I saw a box he was having with him labeled "Dato' Jamaluddin Jarjis..". Alamak!Congrats to H.E Dato' JJ..
Ida,Not to worry and not to be embarrased about not calling a Dato' as a Dato'. The Dato'ship is not posted on the dahi...I would rather be called an Encik esp. when in the JHDN office...and a few other places...*sigh*
Salam,Haha...mesra ada makna tu... Tapi takpelaa tahniah untuk JJ ,moga tak ramai punggung kena raba kat USA, tapi takpe kot sbb org kat sana dah biase kena penggang
