In a heartwarming twist to the convocation season, a viral video on TikTok has garnered over 438,000 views, sparking widespread discussion on social media.
The video features a father, @mr_suka_latte proudly celebrating the graduation of his two daughters, one from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) in July and the other from the University of Malaya (UM) in November.
However, it’s not just the academic achievements that have caught the public’s attention.
The father humorously notes that he wore the same batik shirt to both ceremonies, but the highlight of his observation lies in the stark contrast between the convocation halls of UiTM and UM.
Describing the UiTM hall as “grand” and comparing the UM hall to a simple “Rahmah hall,” his comment has resonated with viewers, leading to an engaging exchange in the comments section.
Some even joked that theirs felt more like a PTA meeting spot than a graduation venue.

The whole thing is a fun mix of pride, nostalgia, and a bit of cheeky comparison. It’s not just about the buildings, though.
This dad’s simple but repeated choice of his batik shirt for both big days kind of symbolises the down-to-earth, proud-parent vibe that’s common no matter where you graduate from.
