Salam, good day. Yesterday for the fifth year, Yayasan has awarded Sultan's Scholar Scholarship award to the nation's top students and also it is the fourth year I've been the emcee. How do you feel emceeing such function?, the recepients keep on moving further with their career but for my self I'm still doing the same thing. It seems very inspirational for me to see those students who has managed to achieve such award and also has made their parents so proud of. At my age, I still have a long way to go and I'm looking forward to further my studies as well. But how I wish, if not me who manage to achieve such goal I hope my kids would:)
