Portrait of him is considered 'Ong' which means royalty or gold in chinese. His portrait symbolizes prosperity and profit because the late Sultan practically breathed life to Kedah when the state was abandoned (to avoid the casualty of wars.)
I think it's amazing how a religious and pious man leader has incredible influence on everyone especially the chinese and indians, unlike our current prime minister Abdullah Badawi. His portrait brings 'Suey' or bad luck.
Every government office has at least one A3 size potrait of PakLah. No wonderlah our federal government is losing the confidence of the rakyat by the minute.
Here are my list suggestiona of portraits to boost morale of government servants:
For Sehati Berdansa followers (losers...)
For Robert Pattinson's kipas-susah-mati (die Cullen die!)
For closet Mak Nyahs (especially pejabat military)
For Digi, Maxis and Umobile users
