Ziarah Yang Mulia Raja Mazwin

Petang semalam saya dan suami serta anak bongsu telah menziarahi YM Raja Mazwin bt. Raja Ariff Shah di kediaman beliau yang terletak di Jalan Dr. Nazrin Shah (Jalan Gopeng). Kesihatan beliau agak kurang memuaskan sejak kebelakangan ini.

Ketika kami tiba di kediaman turut bersama YM Raja Mazwin ialah anak perempuan sulung beliau Raja Nazhatul Shima dan anak sulung lelaki Raja Dato' Seri Iskandar Dzulkarnain yang kini merupakan Yang Amat Mulia Raja Kechil Sulung Perak Darul Ridzuan.

Yang Mulia Raja Mazwin merupakan isteri kepada Sultan Idris Shah II, Sultan Perak ke-32. Yang Mulia pernah menjadi Raja Permaisuri Perak antara tahun 1963-1984.

Dear DS Fatimah,

If my memory does not failed me, l remember someone by the name Raja Norlaila Jasmin Raja Baharom Shah. She went to GESS Tapah probably your batch. But l know you spent a number of years in Kuala Lumpur when l was finishing my B.Sc.

Uptil now, l still dont know her family tree. Wonder if you do. All l know she is royalty.

I have a few comments to make. I am the grandson of Yang Maha Mulia Raja Muzwin. Raja Nazhatul Shima a.k.a. Tengku Dottie is my mother.

First of all, you got her title wrong. YM is for kerabat sultan i.e. Sultan's uncle/aunt/nephew/niece/and grandson. Sultan's widow is YMM. Even anak sultan is YAM/YTM - depending on the state where he/she is from. Oh and her name is spelt Raja Muzwin, not Mazwin.

Secondly, the picture you showed here is not Istana Firuz at Jalan Gopeng; that is Istana Riswin at Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah - her official residence.

Syed Ibrahim Alsagoff,

Firstly, thank you so much for your kind correction. I stand to be corrected.

Actually, most of the info i gathered from this website www.sultan.perak.com.my

With regard to the actual location of the palace, i also apologise.

Finally, do send my salam to your beloved bonda Tengku Dottie and your grand bonda YMM Raja Muzwin. My prayer for their safety and good health.

Waalaikumsalam warahmatullah

Thank you for your reply. I hope you and Dato Seri Nizar are in good health as well.

I am actually a great fan of your husband Dato Seri Nizar as I am an Engineer by trade, just like him. I am also impressed with his linguistic skills both in Cantonese and Mandarin. Oh by the way, my grandma Raja Muzwin also speaks fluent Cantonese (although she rarely do), and she can understand simple Mandarin.

The family and I wish the Pakatan Rakyat government in Perak all the best in running the state and May Allah bless us all. Ameen.

Assalamualaikum Datin Seri,

I hope you are in good health. Im writing to you again to clarify something in my previous comment.

Recently while browsing the internet, I came across this website http://dppkmarang.blogspot.com/2009/02/cucu-raja-pemerintah-perak-pun-sokong.html

When I said "my family and I..." I meant Me & my wife i.e. my immediate family. My grandmother is neutral and does not support any political party. She is free from politics.
