With the opening of a new Parliament session this week, I had not been able to sit and reflect earlier upon last Saturday's tea. Now that I can, my family and I would like to thank those of you who attended the event at my residence in Seri Perdana with your support for and deep interest in the 1Malaysia concept. Although we arrived at the event knowing little about each other, I hope many among you left with the intention of adding each other as online friends.

It was an afternoon of many firsts: I met my online friends formally for the first time, and hosted a tea of this kind at Seri Perdana for what I hope to be the first of many more tea and dialogue sessions with you. As I said, I would have loved to invite every one of my online friends, but to do so, it would have to take place at a large stadium!

Some of you were able to ask me questions, both about my personal interests and in my capacity as the Prime Minister. Despite the constraints of time, I am pleased to be able to respond at length to a number of you. As for those of you with unanswered questions, I will do my best to respond to them in my blog or as a video blog in due time. In the meantime, I hope you are able to share your Saturday experience with your friends and family, online and otherwise. Do encourage them to participate in this important nationwide dialogue as well.

To the thousands of my friends out there whom I have yet to meet, I hope to be able to do so, whether during one of the tea sessions, or on my trips around Malaysia. More developments will be announced on my website and on Facebook. I look forward to more wonderful interactions with you.

Malaysia’s 40 wealthiest are worth $36 billion, down from $46 billion a year ago. That loss is largely in line with the 21% drop in the Kuala Lumpur Composite Index and not too bad considering the fact that the Malaysian ringgit has lost 10% against the U.S. dollar, the currency in which net worths are measured.

Malaysia’s billionaires continue to dominate. The country’s two richest people, Robert Kuok and Ananda Krishnan, both again No. 1 and No. 2, are worth a combined $16 billion and account for 44% of the top 40’s wealth. The two, who have topped Forbes Asia’s Malaysian rich list since it debuted in 2006, are also the two wealthiest in Southeast Asia. The country’s nine billionaires are worth $30 billion, or 84% of the total, the biggest wealth disparity among any of Forbes Asia’s other rich lists. Vincent Tan is the only Malaysian to have dropped out of the billionaire ranks in the past 12 months, as share prices in his companies declined.

Syed Mokhtar Albukhary, who lost his billionaire status earlier this year, is back up top, worth $1.1 billion, thanks to a rebound of his Malaysia Mining Corp. stock.
Top 40 Richest Man In Malaysia For 2009 are:

(1)Robert Kuok USD 9 billion, 85, married, 8 children.

(28)Kua Sian Kooi USD 90 million, 56, married, 4 children.

Note : (last year rank)

Three newcomers debut, thanks to the discovery of better or new information. They include software executive Goh Peng Ooi, ioi board member Chan Fong Ann and gaming tycoon Chen Lip Keong, who operates a casino in Cambodia and a tourism business in Malaysia.

Four people have returned to the ranks after an absence of a year or more. Among them are Syed Mohd Yusof Tun Syed Nasir and Tan Teong Hean, who cashed out of Southern Bank several years ago and are now making new investments. The minimum net worth to make the list is $90 million, down from $100 million last year. This is held by Kua Sian Kooi, executive chairman of Kurnia Asia, who made it to the last spot following a big rally in his insurance firm’s stock, up 50% since the start of April.

Among those who dropped out of the ranks are several tycoons who barely missed the cut, including CIMB bank’s Nazir Razak and OSK finance group’s Ong Leong Huat. Malaysian citizen Ong Beng Seng, who has lived in Singapore for decades, is wealthy enough to qualify but stands to be listed among that nation’s 40 richest in September, largely due to the fact that he and his wife, Christina, who is a citizen of Singapore, share a number of holdings.

Not in the list this year;
(14)Ong Beng Seng, 64, married, 2 children.

(25)Yaw Chee Ming, 50, married.

(30)Abdul Hamed Sepawi, 59, married, 2 children.

(37)Ong Leong Huat, 65, married, 4 children.

(38)Lim Thian Kiat, 51, divorced.

(39)Khoo Kay Peng, 70, NA.

(40)Nazir Razak, 42, married.

The list was compiled using shareholder and financial information provided by individuals themselves, stock exchanges, public documents and analysts. For people with publicly traded documents, net worths were calculated using stock prices and exchange rates from May 15. Privately held fortunes were calculated using database company BRIS and other sources to estimate what companies and assets would be worth if public.
