KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- The royal symbolsof reign have long been used duringofficial ceremonies in countries with monarchs such as Japan and England.

The royal regalia and insignia reflect the identity and image of the ruler and kingdom. Historically, the royal regalia have also been brought to wars, during hunting and when a ruler travels.

For Malaysia, a country that preserves its constitutional monarchy by electing the Yang Di-Pertuan as the monarch and head of state, there are royal regalia that have been passed down from one ruler to anothersince the countrys independence.

LONDON (Bernama) -British Prime Minister Theresa May, embattled but unbowed, is calling for a general election on June 8 in a bid for a stronger hand in the Brexit negotiations with the European Union.

The move took the nation by surprise but was promptly backed by party stalwarts and the Labour opposition even if it so annoyed the Guardian newspaper that it called the move 'unnecessary' in its Opinion column.

She is in a strong position, Labour is demoralised, the LibDems have been consigned to near wilderness and the upstarts that caused the Conservatives much angst, the UK Independence Party (UKIP), has its almost-charismatic former leader Nigel Farage dancing with Donald Trump as his own party at home is stuck like a needle in the groove of anti anything foreign, especially the European Union.

KUALA TERENGGANU (Bernama) -- Fancy a game of golf from the top deck of a luxurious ship whilst cruising on Tasik Kenyir, Terengganu? With keen focus, a good shot can land your golf ball in a hole in one of the 340 charming islets around the lake, close to where the ship is moored.

Such a golfing challenge will become a reality in June 2018 after Pandragon Lake Service & Enterprise takes delivery of its newest four-storey cruise ship, to be named Afiq II.

The brainchild behind the "golfing whilst cruising" concept is Pandragon general manager Mohd Apandi Abdullah and he is confident it would attract avid golfers who would want to try their hand at teeing off from a unique golf course atop a ship cruising on Southeast Asia's largest man-made lake.
