Happy Birthday, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad!

We've rounded up birthday messages from his family and the rakyat.

It’s been an exciting few months for Malaysia, more so for the man behind it all: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Our Prime Minister celebrates his 93rd (!) birthday today, the 10th of July, and continues to wow us with his stamina as the world’s oldest PM.

So, it’s really touching to read this heartfelt birthday message penned by his daughter, Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir. You know how there’s a saying that a father is his daughter’s first and forever hero? It’s doubly-sweet that the photos in the post are by his son-in-law *awww*.

“Happy 93rd birthday to my darling Dad. Nobody can fully know what it took to get back in the game, go out there and fight and then roll your sleeves up to work to save our beloved Malaysia. I’m proud of many things you’ve achieved but nothing has made me prouder than seeing you still willing to listen and learn from your new colleagues.”

May Tun Siti Kiss Tun Mahathir?

To celebrate his birthday, Tun Dr Mahathir and his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah, gave an exclusive interview to Astro Awani. In it, the loving couple talk about #couplegoals, with Tun Siti giving her husband a peck on the cheek! Ohhh, the feels!
