Emperor: "Any update on Mariko Takeuchi?"

King Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah: (Looks at the Emperor incredulously, perturbed that he would raise the subject.)

Emperor: (Slaps the King on the bank) "I'm just joshin' ya!"

Both men laugh and light a cigar.

I always love seeing photos of the Emperor. He has a special something about him. Reminds em of my grandpa or something.

I think in Malaysia, they use the term Sultan and not King.

Its nice to be moving forward with a connection to the past, their pace is relevant but not obvious.

He is a Sultan but when appointed as a King, we add Yang Dipertuan Agong before Sultan. this is His majesty 2nd tenure as Yang Dipertuan Agong.
