Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa ......

Ha...Movie! Movie! Tetiba terexcited.  It has been a while since my last entry on movie and I just realized that lately there's  no movie outing with friends or family.  Why? What happen to my 'movie kakis'? My last review was EPL - Eat Pray Love, Liz Gilbert.  After that no bowling, no movie, no live band *E'ehh*  EXCEPT cooking, baking & wedding prep.  Wooooiitttttttt BORINGnya!!!  My social life kinda movin' in slow pace now ...uhukkkks  I can feel it.  Nevermind, still can catch up its only the 3rd week of January! Chill la.

So, when a good friend of mine highlighted this on FB last nite, THIS! is definitely a MUST see movie for year 2011. 

Another amazing work by KRU studios...I believe!
2 months from now tapi dah tak sabar nak tengokkkkkk!!!!!

Stephen Hughes Rahman as Merong Mahawangsa wowieee...excellent choice.  I became one of his fan since his role as Hang Tuah (slang matsaleh pun takpe, dia tetap macho..arrhhh cair memang cair dengar suara dia) in Puteri Gunung Ledang : The Musical (I went for season 2 & 3, missed the 1st one)

You gotta watch the Merong Mahawangsa Trailer, you'll be more me!

The year is 120 AD... a time when the Roman Empire was at the height of its power, during the reign of Hadrian. Meanwhile in China, the Han Dynasty was firmly cemented as the ruling empire and expanding into Central Asia. Merong, a descendant of Alexander the Great, was asked to escort a Roman prince to Southeast Asia, to meet and wed a beautiful Chinese princess from the Han Dynasty.....source : The Film Catalogue

Just a bit of History on Merong Mahawangsa...ehemmm my "Langkasuka" "Kedah Zamin Turan" forever & ever tu;-)

Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa or The Kedah Annals is an ancient Malay literature that chronicles the bloodline of Merong Mahawangsa and the foundation of the Kedah, a state in Malaysia. Though there are historical accuracies, there are many incredible assertions. The era covered by the text ranged from the opening of Kedah by Merong Mahawangsa, allegedly a descendant of Alexander the Great of Macedonia till the acceptance of Islam.

Merong Mahawangsa was a Hindu and there were nine Hindu rulers before Phra Ong Mahawangsa converted to Islam in 1136 and took the name Sultan Mudzafar Shah. The annal also describes Chola's attack on Kedah.The descendants of Phra Ong Mahawangsa is still ruling Kedah able to trace their lineage from Merong Mahawangsa.


"Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa atau Sejarah Kedah adalah hikayat yang menceritakan susur galur Merong Mahawangsa dan pengasas Kedah, sebuah negeri di Malaysia. Sungguhpun terdapat beberapa fakta sejarah, ia turut mengandungi dakwaan yang mengkagumkan. Era yang dirangkumi oleh teks ini bermula dari pembukaan negeri Kedah oleh Merong Mahawangsa, yang didakwa sebagai keturunan Iskandar Agung dari Macedonia sehingga ketibaan Islam pada abad ke-2 M....."

eh panjang lagi ceriteranya maka rajin-rajin lah mengklik di sini  Sastera Sejarah Negeri Kedah.
