"Dr Konrad Ng is amused that his Malaysian roots got noticed halfway round the world, thanks to his link to Democrat candidate Barack Obama.
An assistant professor at the University of Hawaii in Manoa (UHM), Ng, whose family originally comes from Sabah, is married to Obama’s half-sister Maya Soetoro.
Maya and Obama have the same mother.
In an e-mail interview with The Star, Ng, 34, said that his father, Howard, was born in Sandakan and his mother, Joan, in Kudat.
“I have many relatives who live throughout Malaysia, especially in Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu and the two towns where my parents came from,” he said.
His parents subsequently settled in Canada and Ng was born there.
Maya was born to Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian businessman, and Ann Dunham, a white American cultural anthropologist, who is also Obama’s mother"
Obama --> Half sister (maya) + Ng --> father (howard) + mother (Joan) --> That's my name what!
Just following the Malaysian media trend, they could make and try to find such connection to very famous people aorund the world (i.e : the case of Che'nelle, Gwen Stefani, Monica Pang, and who else ar...)
Well,some make sense but some are totally ridiculous...and the Malaysian media is TOTALLY good at this.
So, uhm why not we start making connections now who knows you might be connected to someone famous...ahaha
