To The Sultan With Love

Dengan segala hormatnya dimaklumkan bahawa saya, bagi pihak Persatuan Ibu Bapa dan Guru Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan XXX ingin memohon kesudian tuan untuk mengangkat sembah menjunjung rasa kasih kepada Ke Bawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Indra Kayangan atas limpah perkenan baginda berangkat mencemar duli ke Majlis Penyampaian Hadiah pada 28 April yang lalu.

That was the kind of laras bahasa that I had to use if I were to write a letter to the Setiausaha Sulit at the Pejabat Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Indra Kayangan if I wanted to thank the dear Sultan for gracing us with his presence at the school Prize Giving Ceremony.

Yeah. That's actually what I was saying in the first paragraph.
Did you get that? I did not get that when I first read it.

But then again, of course we do not address the Sultan personally. As if we were buddies or something. We have to go through his Secretary of course. Private Secretary lagi. haha

Apparently, we need to know how to write official letters using laras bahasa istana just in case we were to write a letter to the Sultan. >.< Anyway, Kemahiran Bahasa Melayu dalam Pendidikan is OVER!!!
Whooopeee!! XD

1 more to go. Just one more. :)

Saya nggak erti apa yang kamu ngomong Lisa Kwan. When I first read your laras bahasa thingie I thought you were inviting the Sultan. Luckily I don't have to take Bahasa Melayu anymore! I suck at it!

It's hard to get isn't it? I was totally confused by the mencemar duli. I was like, what the- MENCEMAR duli?? Sounds awful! Like accusing the Sultan of mencemar-ing something. ahaha XD

I don't think I'd ever address the Sultan either. But the want us to be prepared for ALL possibilities! >.<

oh, I thought you were writing a letter to the Sultan of Perak!
Maybe you should since you're so good with the language, after what happened today at the State Assembly. But then our hope is not in man or sultan, our hope is in the Lord to whom we can appeal without such flowery style.
