Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim - charismatic as ever

The flamboyant Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim is in Sibu to deliver his striking speech to a gathering of PKR's supporters.

Since he came back from confinement, Anwar has been on high profile, taking the nation by surprise occasionally with his explosive expose.

It seems Anwar's charisma has not gone into diminution. In short, he is as popular as ever.

I remember Dato' Seri flew in like whirlwind in the height of kosaki attack in Sibu slightly more than 10 years back.

As DPM then, he almost quaked Sibu, making most dignitaries on the move to be in picture with him.

After 10 years, he came here as PKR's advisor (Parti Keadilan Rakyat), still causing a stir, albeit in a smaller scale.

Dato' Seri left me with numerous vivid memories, one of which relates to his jump into the ring in 1997 in a match with the heavyweight George Soros. He came out bruised after 3 days, not to my surprise at all.

Anyway, Anwar has provided an excellent racial balance in Malaysia's political opposition. I deem the trend as healthy.

I wish Dato' Seri all the best!
