Just watched one of the greatest Malaysian tragedies on TV - Najib's coronation..OOPS! I mean "installation".
Just a quick question - is it just me, or was the YDP Agong just a tad underdressed for the occassion?
His Majesty was dressed in just a simple yellow baju Melayu with no adornments at all, and Her Highness the Raja Permaisuri was dressed in just a normal-looking floral baju kurung.
No crowns, no medals, no sashes, no accessories, not even fancy buttons for His Majesty's baju Melayu. Absolutely no bling-bling at all!
This is supposed to be a momentous occassion, isn't it? Even when officiating regular events like opening Parliament sessions, His Majesty is in full dress! This is the crowning...OOOPS! "Installation" of new PM of the country woh...Takkan don't give face and be dressed to impress, kan?
Wonder if His Majesty was making the only statement he is allowed to make - with his choice of clothes...
If so, I pity the oppression they live with under UMNO.
