Kalau saya memang konfem akan jadi sultan, baikla saya berumba2 g klabing n belajar takat SPM je. Tapi Almarhum Sultan Azlan, belajar sungguh2, kerja jadi hakim beria despite born with silver spoon.
Legasinya diteruskan oleh Sultan Nazrin, bersungguh dia Buat Phd. While some royalties bersungguh nak cari retis for err fun(?), he was involved with a certain celebrity long time ago.
From little I read in d mags back then, he was serious, tapi jodoh mana kita nak tau ye tak...
Even though d said celebrity settled down he took longer time to find d bride. For me, it shows how loyal in love he was. A true gentleman.
Another brownies points, bila kahwin he refused to accept any gifts or government money. Pada zaman drebar pun pakai keter gomen balik raya, that is really something. The bride is so stunning, first class grad lagi, perghhh... again, his taste is great unlike some other royalties who made headlines with errrr....
I prayed he won't spend a fortune on enthronement, macam ... errr macam sapa2la. Geli geleman saya tengok live talk kat tv prior to d event telling this that. Masa Kate n William nak kahwin dulu it was fine, seeing them giving interview on tv about their wedding, budak2 kot..
Kalau dah berusia separuh abad, talk about how nervous himself/herself on his/her coming enthronement, well... disaster ai tell u.
So glad, Sultan Nazrin, instead of doing those not-so-bright things prefers to be close to d young n masses. He initiated essays, debate n public speaking competetition which not only create awareness about sistem beraja, but also makes them appreciate d system even more by able to shake hand with the future sultan himself.
Istiadat pertabalan ini bukan yang paling mewah di dunia. Takde perarakan keliling negeri, pom-pom sana sini, takde konsert K-pop, tapi as someone yang seusia saya yang duduk mengugel berita sejak berhari2, it is d best Ive seen in my entire life.
Istiadat is always be an istiadat, something u shud follow to d chore. Something essential in any installation. All those accessories do not count.
Money cant buy class!
