So I met his majesty former Yang Di Pertuan Agong X from Negeri Sembilan at KL International Motorshow. The crowd were obviously curious about the VIP as his majesty were surrounded by dozens of guards, police and ranked soldiers.

Funny thing was what I heard from some of the crowds..

A: Who’s that fella hah?
B: Look like Tan Sri or Datuk wor..
A: But Tan Sri where got so many bodyguards one?
C: No lar.. it’s the Agong lar.
A: ic.. but I thought Agong face not like that.
C: It’s not the current Agong.. it’s the last one.
B: The last one that married the young wife arh? then who is that lady?
A, B, C: hmmm..

Funny is probably not the right word here.. seriously it’s kinda sad for some of our Malaysians’ civil knowledge..

.. they couldn’t recognize a previous YDPA of Malaysia.
.. they couldn’t recognize the face of the current king of Malaysia.
.. the former YDPA that married a young wife died a few years back.

    Its the same in Singapore siaa pal…some of the ministers are sadly like hungry ghosts….*only come out once a year* so much so that a lot of our citizens do not know them…even though they are supposed to be our ‘fu mu guan’

    So it’s the rulers fault for not showing their face enough? That’s interesting point of view.. come to think of it, it’s true also.

    Btw I always can’t remember the current Education Minister of Malaysia.. shame on me, shame on him as well.
