Fahmi Reza is back in the headlines, ladies and gentlemen! The local artist came up with another satirical post on his socials recently. In his latest work, a drawing of a young man wearing the tengkolok (traditional Malay headgear) could be seen doing push-ups against a yellow backdrop.
The caption in the photo reads, “Push-up 4 Tasik Chini”. It appears that the street artist’s recent satirical artwork seems to be directed at the Regent of Pahang Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim’s “Push-up For Environment Challenge” campaign, which was launched last year.
Surprisingly, Fahmi’s satirical artwork has also caught the attention of the Crown Prince himself! He responded by thanking the artist for the artwork. He also wrote, “No need police report, I actually like the graphics. ✅” The latter also took to his Twitter to share the reaction left by the Pahang royalty.
In related news, Tengku Hassanal also came forth to apologise to environmental activist Noor Jehan Abu Bakar for being late to attend an event last week. For context, the latter came up with a post on Twitter, claiming that the Regent of Pahang and other high-ranking officers were two hours late for the Buffer Zone Ecosystem Restoration Programme (tree planting event) in Pantai Chenor, Kemaman, Terengganu.
Tengku Hassanal delivered a personal message to Noor Jehan on his IG Story in response to that. “My sincere apologies for being late for the event. I was not feeling well that morning and had to take a few precautions for everyone’s safety,” His Majesty explained.
In his subsequent post, Tengku Hassanal also revealed that he has asked the police to leave Noor Jehan alone and not create drama after knowing that she was called in by the police. “I just found out about this, I’ve asked the police to leave her alone. Please don’t stir up drama,” he wrote.
