It's the 7-day mourning period for the people of Johor, with the passing of Almarhum Sultan Iskandar on Saturday, 23rd January 2009, at the age of 77 years old. On Monday morning, I feel like a 'Pejuang Kemerdekaan' wearing shirt, pants and songkok to office. :p
Muslim men have to wear songkok with 2-inch white band. I think the last time I observe this mourning dress code was when I was still a little kid during the passing of Sultan Perak, Almarhum Sultan Idris. And I don't remember I wear anything like this during the passing of Sultan Selangor, Almarhum Sultan Salehuddin.
