Finally, I get to update the blog once more. It is already in the middle of April. There are many news regarding the royal for this month, so probably it will takes me quite a while for me to covered the royal news. First, we will start with the most important news from the Land of Greatness, or officially known as Johor Darul Takzim. His Royal Highness the Tunku Mahkota (Crown Prince) of Johor previously has announced his resignation as the President of Johor State Football Association and will only acted as Patron. Nevertheless, many are against his action. And among them include His Royal Highness the Sultan Ahmad Shah of Pahang. 

In his official statement in Istana Abu Bakar, the Sultan Ahmad Shah are against the action of the Johor's Crown Prince. The Crown Prince and his father the Sultan of Johor even met an audience with the Sultan of Pahang regarding the issue and spent around an hour discussing it. And after the meeting, the Crown Prince has reconsider to take back his decision and stayed as the President of Johor State Football Association.

In the internet and social websites, the decision of the Crown Prince to stay as President received many approval from the people. Especially after the people has witnessed the fruition of the royal effort to develop the Football Club of Johor and improved it to return the team back to its former glory. Supporters of the Johor Football Team, the Johor Darul Takzim also had once again flocking at the team's home stadium, the Larkin Stadium. Just like in the past, the visitors had once against revive the once lost fearsome 'War cry of Larkin'. Royal is as Royal do. Kudos to the Crown Prince.
