  Pak Belalang: The Astrologer 

Pak Belalang often conspires to portray himself as an astrologer in an attempt to earn some money while helping out fellow villagers in trouble. Convinced by his actions, the Village Chief brings him to the palace to help solve a robbery but the situation turns complicated when the Sultan appoints Pak Belalang as the Royal Advisor.
