Last weekend I played for Negeri Selangor team in the Malaysian Inter State Chess Championship held at MS Garden Hotel Kuantan Pahang. My team mates are Nur Nabila, Puteri Rifqah my KUSESS school mate, Roslina Marmono and Esther Tang.

The opening ceremony was officiated by the Highness Tengku Mahkota Pahang (TMP). It is good for the Malaysian chess community when a royal family member appreciates the game of chess.
The Malaysian chess community are surely happy when Datuk Mohd Nazifuddin, the PM's son, has promised to bring Chess into SUKMA. I did not realized when he was standing on my back watching shortly one of my games. Datuk Nazif has showed his commitment to the chess community by spending much of his time in the tournament hall.
