FADASON...if you must ask, what's that all about?

Sounds very Italian, no?

But heck no, it is not an Italian outfit but simply a Malaysian company, in fact one of the fastest growing developers in Kuala Lumpur despite the glooming economic outlook enveloping the country.

This company has been doing well with several projects here there and is on its way up the apex of developers in the Klang Valley and this outfit outshines the others in meritrocracy.

By looking at the name I would instantly knew that it derives from a combination of names of a father and son (or sons because there are quite a number of brothers in the family). This is a well-known family in politics because they de-hemogenise their presence in a single constituency but spread out their footings in Kedah, Penang and Wilayah Persekutuan.

Latest the youngest politician in the family was appointed to Majlis Tertinggi Umno, a political resurrection of sort for the 40 something man who was quite promising at one time but faced an almost political dead-end in Kedah when he was just made an ordinary state assemblyman.

However, he lost a parliamentary seat he contested in the last general election. But then again, who did not? Most Umno candidates including the good ones drowned in the 2008 tsunami.

Now prime minister Najib T. Razak acknowledges his political acumen and bestowed greatness in him once again.

He is part of FADASON, in fact he is the dynamics behind the name.

If you drive along Jalan Kepong you will not miss the name, proudly displayed on several signboards.

FADASON, agustie italiano?...scuze paisan!!
