Negeri Sembilan is the only state in Malaysia that uphold the Adat Perpatih and they can trace their descendants back to Pagar Ruyong in Sumatra. The brief history was mentioned by YAM Tunku Zain Al-Abidin ibni Tuanku Muhriz when the Sahabat Media CC1M FAM Trip to Negeri Sembilan had an audience with him at the Muzium Diraja Istana Seri Menanti in Negeri Sembilan.
Sahabat Media CC1M visited the state of Negeri Sembilan to help promote tourism in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2014. The event was in organised by mmode and santai travel in colloboration with Tourism Negeri Sembilan and Tourism Malaysia.
There are 40 of us in the entourage comprising of media representatives and bloggers and we depart from MaTIC in Kuala Lumpur to Klana Resort as our first stop. We we given a grand welcome with the Director of Klana Resort himself putting the garland on us to the background music of the Caklempong performed live.
We were then entertained to a welcome drink of Klana Resort's signature drink, Ice Lemon Tea with Lychee and followed by a press conference at the Cascade Lobby Lounge by the Director of Klana Resort, Y.B Haji Abu Samah bin Mahat and Acting General Manager, Encik Saiful Bahri Mat Tahir.
