P Ramlee Doodle by Google

Malaysian Google users would be pleasantly surprised today to find P Ramlee's likeness adorning their search browser.

The image shows the national treasure perched on a director's chair, with music sheet in hand, a guitar by his side and a hailer in his other hand – a tribute to his extraordinary achievements.

Google honored the late P Ramlee with his own Doodle, in conjunction with the screen legend's birthday.

“Born 88 years ago today, P Ramlee’s artistic achievements left a permanent mark on the cultural history of Malaysia,” said Google in its Doodle description.

Teuku Zakaria Teuku Nyak Putih or known better for his screen name as P Ramlee (right) was a prolific actor, director, writer, and musician who contributed to more than 60 films and composed at least 250 songs.

P Ramlee died on May 29, 1973, at the age of 44 from a heart attack and was buried at Jalan Ampang Muslim Cemetery in Kuala Lumpur.
