  1. Appears he never attended a Malay school!

  2. I agree. Strange though as he's going to become the next sultan of Selangor. How could he feel at home when his heart is abroad,in the lands of the white man? He spent much of his growing years/youth in the US and UK. I wonder if he feels Malay or American.
