For the past 6 months, I have seen him working non-stop from 8am till 11pm, 7 days a week. I don’t really know if he has a straight 8 hours sleep since May this year. Sometimes he even skips lunch or dinner to attend meetings, or just to finish his pile of works in the office. During the recent pre-budget period, at times he only had less than 3 hours of sleep for the whole week. He worked with his team till late night and had to overnight in the office to prepare his first budget. He wants to ensure that everybody will have benefited even though they have only limited fund. Once, I followed his daily schedule and was totally worn out at the end of the day. Many people would ask me why my dad despite his hecticness managed to look fresh all the time. I still could not figure out how but believe his passion for the people and country that keeps him motivated always. Despite my mum’s advice for him to slow down, he will still work as hard because he thinks the sooner the welfare of the people and country improved, the country will be backed on track soon. Some nights, my dad will come back home late almost midnight and tell me he is exhausted just by looking at numbers from work. Looking at this picture,many may give criticism on it, but for me, I am very proud of my dad. To me, he will always be a hero in my heart. Here, I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the opposition for posting this picture to enable everyone to know that my dad is working extremely hard for the country.

Guan Eng says he wasn’t sleeping in Parliament, merely resting his eyes
