This was a very special birthday celebration of Tun Dr. Mahathir, Malaysia's longest serving prime minister. It was hosted by Lord's Tailor, the most established and famous suit maker in the country. Tun Mahathir was a loyal customer of Mr. Robert Loh, the owner of Lord's Tailor, for the last 25 years.
The story started way back when Tun Mahathir came to Kuala Lumpur from his hometown, and started to participate in the parlimen. He then reallised he needs to dress up in formal suit whenever he step into the meeting. Tun tried few tailors,one after another, and was never satisfied. It was the 4th tailor that he get to know, somehow made the best suit he ever had. It was from that moment onwards, 25 years ago, Tun never had another different tailor after Mr. Robert Loh.
In order to thank and show his gratitute for the Prime Minister, Lord's Tailor, threw a nice birthday bash for Tun's 87th birthday. Some of Lord's Tailor's best old time customers were invited to this special party, including old time friend who's in the same fashion industry as Mr. Robert, Dato Prof. Jimmy Choo. Some of local popstars such as Datuk Yusni Hamid, Amanda Imani dan Dr Burn.
A special appearance by Shahrukh Khan all the way from his private jet from London, sent the whole crowd into frenzy. Sharukh Khan who treats Tun Mahathir as his mentor, sang the birthday song for him on the stage. The former Prime Minister and his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali ended up dancing to the beat of the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai song by Shahrukh Khan.
