  2. Living and growing up in Bukit Chandan, Kuala Kangsar.. I am proud to say that.. I attended this grand wedding reception.. The whole 100 days & 100 nights.. Yup.. its that big.. far beyond your imagination… Was only 8 years old then.. dad was an employee at DYMM office, its granted me the access into the palace.. BTW, I still do have those exclusive marble eggs, plates, books etc that were parts of gifts to honorable guests.. maybe it’ll become some sort of collectors items some day…

  3. Wish they had gotten married in 1982 then I would have been in KK.
    It is funny that I’m one of the minority in the country that would think of Kuala Kangsar when I heard the word KK. Most people in Malaysia would think of Kota Kinabalu.
    5 years in that town definitely left quite a mark on me.
