The Sultan of Kedah Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah has passed away today at the age of 90.

Sultan Abdul Halim was the only sultan to serve as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong twice, from 1970 to 1975 and 2011 to 2016. His second tenure ended on Dec 12 last year.

Though little – have very fond memories of receiving book gifts at School Speech Day for top marks for English & History (1963-67) at Ibrahim School from HRH and HRH, the late Kedah Sultanah!

I still remember the rehearsals, how to approach, receive turn, take step backwards before returning to chair!

Apachen & Ammachi used to be so proud of me!

This is truly a sad day for me!
