Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) and the Raja Permaisuri Agong made a surprise visit to the KFC Petronas Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) in Kuala Lumpur to enjoy lunch yesterday.
His Majesty’s sons and grandsons also went along.
In a Facebook post by Istana Negara, it shared the story of YDPA Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah showing up at a KFC restaurant for lunch and had a chat with the customers there.
Queue to order
The YDPA and his children and grandchildren also queued at the counter with other customers to order their lunch.
“After their meal, Their Royal Highnesses both agreed to spend time saying hello and being friendly with some of the customers. Both of them agreed to take pictures with visitors,” Istana Negara wrote.
The post, which was shared on Facebook yesterday (30 Dec) has garnered over 13k likes at the time of writing, with many praising the Their Royal Highnesses for their down-to-earth approach.
“I am proud to be a Malaysian. Daulat Tuanku.”
“So humble and kind […]. Wish all the Sultans and Sultanahs and the leaders in our country can emulate our beloved King and Queen. Never in my whole life have I seen anything like this.”
One netizen also aksed the King to see the size of the drumsticks and chicken wings at KFC as the size is small.
