“Wishing all our Malayalee friends a very happy and blessed Onam,” their Majesties said in a post on the Istana Negara Instagram account.

Onam, a harvest festival of the Malayalee community, falls during the first month of the Malayalam calendar called Chingam, which corresponds to August-September.
