31st March, Adat Istiadat Day.

Salam, good day. His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, The Crown Prince and Senior Minister at The Prime Minister Office, this morning has consented to officiate the launching of book 'Buku Adat Istiadat Diraja Brunei', at The International Convention Center Berakas. The 700++ pages book was written by YB Pehin Dato Jamil, Head of Brunei History Center. Part of the launching was also seminar and exhibition. Since I was on duty this morning, I was only able to take few shots.

It's ain't red, it's 'brawn' instead!

Salam, good day. For me, it was a very eventful weekend that just left and another eventful week ahead. Yesterday at Dewan Raya RTB, Abdul Aziz Harun crowned as Bintang Kecil RTB-Kristal 2009 champion beating another 9 finalists. He is belting out 'Kau Ilhamku' and he is playing accoustic guitar as well. What a talent he was! According to him, he learned how to play guitar via the internet. Second place goes to Sabrina Eelini Mayalin and third place goes to Muhaidi Mohammad. According to the organiser, this year's competition was very tight with all the finalists belting out to their best. Wooo...it is the 32nd edition of Bintang Kecil since 1978 and it is getting better each year, expect another cracking competition next year. Congrats to all!

Top of the chart!

Salam, good day. Last evening was not the best of perfomance by Brunei DPMM FC against Sengkang Punggol FC but the three points was much more important. The only goal scored by Shahrazen Said 15 minutes after the restart and his first after six games. After the win, DPMM FC move up to the summit in the standing with 14 points, leaving behing Gombak United at 2nd place with 12 points and followed by SAFFC with 11 points at 3rd spot. The next match was against Tampines Rovers Fc on April the 3rd. Are we on top? Yeah...we are on top! Bravo!
