Honorary Doctor of Laws

Two days ago, the Sultan of Johor, the most southern state of Malaysia, received an Honorary Doctor of Laws from the National University of Singapore.

This is in recognition of his steadfast leadership of Johor and for his valuable contributions to relations between Singapore and Johor.

In this photo, the President of Singapore, President SR Nathan, who is also the Chancellor of NUS is presenting the degree scroll to His Majesty, Sultan Iskandar Ibni Almarhum Sultan Ismail. The Sultan and Sovereign Ruler of the State and Territories of Johor Darul Ta'zim.

There was a big screen above them, so I took the big screen photo instead! It is much bigger and you can see the face. Yes, this DP got an invite and as a DP, attended it with a camera of course!

Glad to hear Singapore & Malaysia are trying to get along again. We don't need more turmoil in the world.

So when will your get Datuk-hood? Or Tan Sri-dom?

There was a bit of a furore a week or so ago as Lee Kwan Yew was goven an honorary doctorate at Australian National University. Bit of a campus demo.
