Mr. Blah, it is bad fengsui to craft your name on plague plaque before you die!
When a country leader start playing idolize games, it is the time the country feeding to the dog. There is plenties of example of it, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and the recent one, North Korea Kim, Cuba Castro, Iraq Saddam.
For “normal” society, plaque and statue are always for the deceased, to show the people respect and honor to somebody. In addition, you can only “conclude” a person work and contribution after their death, this is especially true to politicians vs poltickus. So when USSR collapse, Stalin statue has been pulled down, Saddam plague and statue has been torn down, smashed to pieces.
Alas, it seems Bolehland politicians is undergone similar process. My crony howsy mentioned one smart aleck in wildest zoo in the country just come out with an idea making a RM120,000 12mx 1.5m wooden plaque to please his boss.
Moral of the story : Never accept a plague unless you want to dig a grave for your own.
