KUALA LUMPUR: A story shared by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak about him not being allowed to eat half-boiled eggs during a visit to China recently drew laughter at the opening of Invest Malaysia 2014 here on Monday.
The Prime Minister said while in Beijing, he could not enjoy half-boiled eggs every morning because of health reasons, adding that he was under the supervision of a health officer appointed by China.
"I normally like to have a half-boiled egg boiled for three minutes, but in China, I could not get it.
"There was a health inspector that made sure my egg was boiled for 10 minutes, so I am really healthy," he said in a dialogue session after delivering a keynote address at the Invest Malaysia 2014 here.
The dialogue session was moderated by PricewaterhouseCoopers Malaysia's former executive chairman Datuk Seri Johan Raslan.
Najib said the special treatment given to him while in China proved that the tragedy of the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH370 on March 8 had not affected relations between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing.
The Prime Minister visited China from May 28 to June 2 to mark the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing.
Najib stressed that warm and close relations with international leaders would create greater opportunities in many aspects.
In sharing President Barack Obama's visit to Malaysia last April, Najib said he was impressed with the US leader's car nicknamed "The Beast", and wished he could get one.
"I wish I could get one, but I don't think that I will. It is a very comfortable car," he said in jest. - Bernama
