It seems the government likes to be associated with famous people. First they give Shah Rukh Khan a Datukship (Malacca Government :S), now they give an award to Ip Chun (Ip Man's son).
So what is the reason that they give this award?? Is it because Ip Man is so famous with that they want to share the limelight?
Someone joked with me, maybe we should give Einstein an award, then we will be really famous XD.
