Agongs Birthday 2019

Saturday, June 1, 2019

In Malaysia, the King is referred to as Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Agong's Birthday is observed on the first Saturday in June each year.

The largest and most popular celebration for the holiday occurs at Istana Negara in Kuala Lampur. At this impressive venue, a ceremony is held to honour the Agong and various honourable Malaysian citizens.

This event is often regarded as Malaysia's grandest event of the year. This ceremony is very formal, so everyone in attendance wears their best outfits.

During the ceremony, various medals and ribbons are awarded to people who have performed impressive deeds throughout the year. Malaysian citizens are commonly awarded for heroism and acts of extreme kindness.

The ceremony is also attended by members of the royal family, government, and the diplomatic corps.

During the morning of Agong's Birthday, the Malaysian King gives a speech to the people of Malaysia from the throne room of his palace. During this speech, the Agong usually addresses a variety of issues, including politics, global crises, and challenges that Malaysia faces. While the topics of this address are quite serious, the Agong usually presents them in a manner that is hopeful and optimistic.
