Installation ceremony steeped in tradition

The 13th King & Queen of Malaysia

Tunku Mizan Zainal Abidin was yesterday installed as the Malaysia's 13th King in a glittering ceremony steeped in tradition at Balairong Seri of Istana Negara. He pledge to govern the national with utmost fairness and ensure a just and peaceful administration. After that, a nafiri (trumpet) was sounded, followed by the playing of the nobat raja bertabal by the Royal Terengganu Nobat Group. This was followed by a 21-gun salute and rendition of NegaraKu by the Royal Armoured Corps.

I personally likes his speech:

"I admit it's not easy for a multiracial population to live in peace and harmony. Look around us. Not many are successful; more have failed. We must maintain this precious unity to the best we can. Coexisting requires us to understand, respect and be tolerant of each other."

Simple but deep! I hope he can make a change to our country.
