Keberangkatan DYMM Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong


As I have promised, I am back with the photos of Tuanku's visit to our school last Saturday (during the SS78 Family Day).

A month before, the preparation of the SS78 family day was the school's top priority. There were so many things to be done! We had series of meetings, the protocol briefings, gotong royong, the rehearsels and etc. I was in charge of the students' stage performance that day. When I was informed that I was supposed to prepare a group of students for a live singing performance for the royal couple, I was actually laughing at myself..Who?? Me?? I can't even sing! Nursery rhyme pun tak lepas..hehehe. 2 days later, we quickly carried out an audition and 5 students were selected. Thank god! One of the students can sing very well and she made my job seemed so easy. Infact all five of them are very talented indeed.

I chose the songs and the list of songs was submitted to Tuanku's officers to be approved. I was with my students at the backstage when they performed that day and I was soooo nervous. Kecut perut I kat belakang stage tu as if I yg nak nyanyi! I always reminded my students to be cool always ( I sendiri pun tak cool sebenarnya) and not to forget their lyrics!!! After the performance, I felt so relieved. Lega sgt2 rasanya and I told my students they should really be proud of themselves. They don't have to be superstars or to be as famous as Siti Nurhaliza to perform infront of the King and Queen! I am so proud of my students that day and now I miss watching them singing..

Then, we were told that Permaisuri (Queen Lady Consort) was impressed with our students' performance and she would like to attend our school's 'Talentime' in the future (if we were to have one!).


Kagum degan Tuanku (His Majesty) yang mesra rakyat

Tuanku and his classmates from SS Class of 78


A day before the event, the yellow carpet was laid out...... (Yellow is the royal color of the hereditary Malay rulers in Malaysia)


Semua org amek gambar kat kereta ni. It's a Bently. I heard that there are only two of it's kind in Malaysia

Tuanku dan Permaisuri sedang bersantap. It was at this time my students performed the songs. No one is allowed to carry a handbag or to bring a handphone into the hall due to safety reason. The bomb detection procedure was also carried out just before Tuanku entered the hall.

Some other famous people from SS Class of 78- From left : YB Syed Azman, Dato' Farid and Manan Ngah, the popular composer and song writer


The singers- Najihah, Mimi, Misah, Azim and Dina. Unfortunately, I couldn't take my students' photos while they were performing. No one was allowed to snap photos except for the appointed photographers...


Me and my Gamelan performers ..

My brass band team also performed that day.. I am the teacher advisor of the school's Gamelan team and the Brass Band team



My brass band members were getting the signature from the famous composer Manan Ngah. They played his song that day. Manan Ngah was also an ex- student of the school


Alhamdulillah, everything went well that day. Kalut jugak I sebenarnya hari tu..The whole thing is such a memorable experience to all of us....
