We have a new King!
The palace from the outside
Yesterday was a public holiday. The reason why we had the day off was because of the investiture of our 14th Yang Dipertuan Agung. Our new king is an Oxford grad. Known for his gentle ways and kind manner. This is his second term as the Agung. I wanted to stick my camera in between the bars to get a better shot but WNN warned the gates might well electrocute me. Didn't fancy dying in this glorious way so you're left with this picture. Which doesn't do justice to the actual picture
The palace gate. One of the 4 entrances ( or isit 3 I forget now)
We headed there after dark and we caught the lovely lights. No crowd at all. The motorcade folks resting just around the corner were very friendly and helpful. We got our picture taken and we got a lot of nods and smiles:)
The name of this blog was shamelessly pinched from that wonderful programme starring Joanne Lumley and Jeniffer Saunders. Thank you for dropping by...
Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.
Edina Monsoon has an Mb Bch Bao degree. Following a 3-year stint in the great Malaysian outback (Tawau, Sabah) she now lives and works in Kuala Lumpur where she contributes to the traffic on a daily basis. She has moved towards a more arty-farty lifestyle with blogging ( roll eyes ) and is now attempting to gain recognition as a more than adequate amateur violin player.
God if you can't make me thin, at least make my friends fat.
