22 Nov – Months after he was announced as one of the Datukship awardees, multi-hyphenate Yusry Abdul Halim finally received his order of merit.
The filmmaker, who attended the official presentation at Istana Negara on 19 November, shared a photo of him at the ceremony, alongside wife and actress Lisa Surihani.
"Bismillah. I am thankful for His permission and grace. Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Al Aamiin," he wrote.
Yusry was originally announced as one of the recipients back on Federal Territory Day, but that the ceremony itself could not be held at the time due to the Movement Control Order.
He was bestowed the Panglima Mahkota Wilayah (PMW) medal by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Riáyatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.
Among other artistes who were selected for the award include singer Nora Ariffin and lyricist Habsah Hassan.
