MUAR: The people of Muar were in seventh heaven this evening when they got an opportunity to take photos with the Sultan of Johor, Sultan
Ibrahim almarhum Sultan Iskandar at Istana Tanjong here.
One of them was trader Razlan Ismail, 33, who was overly excited as he still could not believe he had taken a picture with the sultan.
“This is my first experience (taking a photo with the sultan) and I will keep this photo as a memento. It has a high personal value for me. It is true that His Majesty is very close to the people’s heart and very friendly,” he told reporters here today.
Mohd Aiman Shukor, 21, said he was very proud to have a people-oriented sultan who was always willing to mingle both directly and casually with the people. He said he was also among the luckiest to have got the chance to take a closer look at, and take his own photos of the Mack truck, belonging to the Johor ruler.
Earlier, Sultan Ibrahim drove the truck from Johor Baharu at 3pm and arrived in Muar about 4.40pm.
Besides being allowed to have a close look and take photos of the truck, Sultan Ibrahim also consented to mingle with the people and turn on some lights on the truck for the benefit of about 100 lucky people. – BERNAMA
