Repost from @tz.n9 – 21/10/18 A lovely morning showing my great-aunt Tunku Shahariah around @jalanmerdeka
7-10. Also extended at Seri Negara are @raja_ihsan’s Photographs of August 1957 by the fourth Agong Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah and @thehumansofkl, which features the chauffeur of both Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Sultan Ismail, the grandfather of @thehumansofkl founder @mushamir.mustafa
Here’s a great story of the Negeri Sembilan Prince Tunku Zain who came over the Humans of KL exhibition. Humans of KL founder Mushamir Mustafa found out that the Tunku’s grandfather (the 1st King of Malaysia) and Mushamir’s grandfather (the personal driver for the first 4 Kings of Malaysia) were together 60 years ago during his reign, after reading a Humans of KL story I wrote about my grandfather’s past. It’s great to see that 60 years on, their grandchilds meet again! What a circumstance!
We will be featuring the first ever Humans of Kuala Lumpur (HOKL) PhotoStory exhibition titled ‘Stories from Malaysia’, showcasing portraits of people in Malaysia, alongside their real, personal and intimate stories.
“Stories of Malaysia” features never before exhibited 35 photostories, showing unique, diverse Malaysians of various backgrounds and themes such as Malaysian unity, stories of the past, young cancer survivors, inspiring entrepreneurship and corporate stories, stories of survival, bullying, triumph, success, secrets, hurts and families.
Every weekend, a Meet & Greet session will be held to feature the people who we have interviewed surrounding a specific theme, as well as those from our most viral photostories. This is your chance to meet the people behind your favourite stories, hear their stories live and learn from them!
