Netizens Approve Tiong King Sing As Tourism Minister After Old Video Of Him Dancing Resurfaces

Shake what ya mama gave ya.

Few Malaysians are satisfied with the Unity Government’s new cabinet lineup, which was unveiled by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim last Friday (2 December).

Even with the Cabinet list being reduced, additional ministries and individuals were still added, and only time will tell if the decision was well-considered.

Regardless of the result, a throwback video went viral and amused some Malaysians online.

Dancing queen

The recently appointed tourism minister, Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing, was reputedly seen in the video dancing and mingling with Sarawakians during a Gawai celebration in a video shared on Twitter by user @datukhensem.

Along with Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP), and Parti Rakyat Sarawak, PDP is one of the four constituent parties of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (PRS).

While excessive partying may appear inappropriate to some, an internet user stated that it is an Iban custom to welcome guests.
