KUALA LUMPUR, July 3, 2015:
An Ipoh girl received a pleasant surprise when she turned around to see the man behind her back in an economy class flight at the Penang International Airport was actually Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.
Jasmine Chan Kit Mun, on her Facebook page, posted a selfie of her with Khairy with a caption describing the incident.
According to Jasmine, after the aircraft landed, she was trying to take her luggage down from the compartment, which was a few seats back.
“I definitely needed someone to take my luggage down for me when the plane landed.
“Who knows a nice gentlemen offered a helping hand and, yes, I am certainly shocked that he is Mr YB Khairy Jamaluddin taking the same economy class flight with the rest of us,” she said.
The post received more than 550 likes and 20 shares after just six hours.
Jasmine added that after Khairy helped her with her luggage, the Rembau MP continued to help her carry her luggage.
“Feeling a little bit shy to have the minister helping me to carry my luggage.”
