A month to go.


Salam, good day. His Majesty's 63rd birthday celebration is only 30 days left. *that fast* On my today's posting I would like share with you some details and profile of our beloved monarch. His Majesty was born on July 15, 1946 in Brunei Town (now Bandar Seri Begawan). His Majesty had his early education in Brunei Darussalam and then went to Victoria Institution in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to further his studies. His Majesty was trained as an Officer at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst (United Kingdom) in 1966-67. His Majesty was installed as The Crown Prince in 1961 at the age of 15. Following the voluntary abdication of his late Father, Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, His Majesty was installed as the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan on 5th October 1967 and later His Majesty was crowned as the 29th Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei. His Majesty led a Mission to London for discussions with Her Britannic Majesty's Government on the change of status of Brunei Darussalam to that of a sovereign, independent state. The outcome was the Treaty of Friendship and Co-operation between Brunei Darussalam and Great Britain under which the British Government relinquished its responsibilities for the conduct of Brunei Darussalam's Foreign Affairs and Defence on the 1st of January 1984. Expect more latest news to come prior to His Majesty's birthday celebrations. May Allah bless His Majesty:)

Hang on! Gearing up for the 63rd Royal Birthday
