Many delighted over Dato’ Sri Najib Razak, Malaysia PM’s e-mail and SMS greeting
Did you receive an email of Chinese New Year greeting from our Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Razak? It’s so sweet of him sending us CNY greetings and it’s personal touch.
I did receive the greeting email and a lot of ppl did reply to my tweet that they do receive this email too. I’m wondering from where our PM got our email address and it’s stated that it’s from 1Malaysia.com.my and various sources.
I didn’t subscribe to 1Malaysia.com and it makes me wonder where are the various sources that were referred to? Hmm…
Saya ingin mengucapkan Selamat Menyambut Tahun Baru Cina buat seluruh rakyat Malaysia, khususnya bagi mereka yang akan menyambut perayaan yang penuh dengan kemeriahan ini.
Setiap kali tibanya perayaan ini, saya masih terbayang kemeriahan dan keceriaan yang saya lalui semasa kecil. Sudah pasti saya tidak akan ketinggalan mengikut ibu bapa saya menziarahi rakan-rakan beliau yang berketurunan Cina. Makanan kegemaran semasa musim perayaan ini semestinya kuih kapit, kuih bangkit, tat nanas, kerepek “ngaku” manakala limau Mandarin sering menjadi pilihan utama. Teringat juga, sewaktu kecil adakalanya saya dihampiri oleh rakan-rakan ibu bapa yang menghulurkan angpow. Tetapi sekarang, suasana sudah berbeza. Hidangan sudah berubah, pelbagai juadah seperti sate, ais kacang, mi rebus dan maruku juga disediakan.
Semoga di Tahun Arnab ini, kita akan sentiasa berada dalam suasana penuh kemakmuran, kebahagiaan dan juga dianugerahkan kesihatan yang sempurna.
Selamat Tahun Baru Cina, Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Najib Razak & Keluarga
Happy Chinese New Year to all Malaysians who celebrate this auspicious event.
Each year as the season draws near I am reminded of the excitement and merriment I experienced as a child during Chinese New Year. Mum and dad would visit our Chinese friends, and I would always tag along. I always look forward to savouring the many delicacies, favorites being kuih kapit, kuih bangkit, pineapple tarts and “ngaku” crackers, with Mandarin oranges always on top of the list. A wide smile would cross my face when I received “angpows” from my parents’ friends. Today, the celebrations have grown to include sate, ais kacang, mi rebus and maruku even!
May the Year of the Rabbit bring blessings of much happiness, good health and prosperity always. With new beginnings comes new opportunities and as we usher in the Lunar New Year, it is my sincere hope that you achieve success and satisfaction in all your undertakings. Your accomplishments are reflective of our nation’s triumphs, and may we always excel beyond expectations!
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Najib Razak & Family
I even get the SMS greetings from our Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Razak. It’s not 1 SMS, it’s not 2 SMS but it’s 3 SMS of the same content? If let say 1million people receive 3 SMS then it might cost around RM0.05*1million*3SMS = RM150,000.00 to blast the SMS CNY greetings? Hmm… that’s my simple random calculation only…
On the other hand, I appreciate the email and sms greetings blast! Happy Chinese New Year to everyone and wishes you have a great year ahead! Gong Xi Fatt Chai! Hoot ah!!! 恭喜发财!!
PETALING JAYA: Many of the 1.5 million people who received the Prime Minister’s Chinese New Year greeting via e-mail were delighted over his message.
“The Prime Minister has a very noble intention to get closer to all of us. We receive it (his message) with an open heart and full of smiles,” said Noor Amy Ismail on Twitter about the e-mail which was circulated since Saturday.
Blogger Aizuddin Danian said the e-mail highlighted the personal side of the Prime Minister.
“It makes a point to mention that he had no problems visiting the homes of his Chinese friends,” Aizuddin wrote.
Junior video editor Alistair Tham, 22, also expressed delight at being one of those who had received the e-mail.
“People may think it’s a spam but I think it’s not a bad way to approach the people,” said Tham.
The personal initiative by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, which is a first by any Prime Minister, was particularly targeted at reaching youths aged between 20 and 34 years old.
The e-mail was sent from various database sources, especially to those who have registered at the Prime Minister’s personal website www.1malaysia.com.my.
In the greeting, Najib also briefly reminisced on his excitement as a child as the festival approached.

The intention was certainly appreciated.
But in my opinion, too much damage and uneasiness has been poured to the people and one such message do not make any difference to those who already make up their mind on parting love with the PM
Anyway, there’s no harm in giving such greeting so it is great as well.
