MajlEx 26 July - 1 August.

Salam, good day. I can hardly sneak to my workplace for the whole week, been very very very busy working 'outside' the office. I thought with this upcoming holy month of Ramadhan, the assignment would be less but its gone the other way! Nevertheless I love what I've been doing and again I love the busy hours. Also, I have a lot of overdue pictures and stories as well, which I highly regret unable to post 'em on bruneidaily. At the same time I would recommend you to pay a vist to ICC for Majlis Ilmu Exhibition (MajlEx) at the Main Concourse Hall. The exhibits will run until the 1 August, 9am to 5 pm and it is such an informative exhibits. Please do come:)

We can't recognize, only skeletons left.

I like this picture *cool*

Ain't over yet.

Salam, good day. Yesterday I attended three event, of course on office assignment. First, the handing over of Brunei Darussalam national flag to the contingent of Brunei Darussalam for the Youth Olympic Games which is schedule to be held in Singapore from 14-26 of August. Second, I went to ICC in Berakas to attend the full rehearsal for this upcoming 'Majlis Ilmu', which is going to be held on 26-28 July. Third, in the afternoon I attended a ceremony for the distribution of 'Kurma Kurnia' of His Majesty at the Chancellor Hall, UBD. All of the functions was a national event and a must for me to attend. Since I'm not fully recovered, I thanked Allah for helping me to clear up my job. Whilst, tomorrow morning one more to come, a get together ceremony for the rakyat and residence of Brunei Muara District with His Majesty in conjunction with His Majesty's 64th Birthday:)

Health worth more.

Salam, good day. Day 7 at 'pentas perayaan' last evening was a big hit. Firstly the weather is really good and fair. Secondly Hans Anuar, Putri Norizah and others were on stage belting out their numbers. The perfomances for Day 7 were organised by Radio Service of RTB which comprises of five radio stations namely Nasional FM, Pilihan FM, Pelangi FM, Harmoni FM and Nur Islam. The show is more to nasyid perfomances as well as the declamation of poems by the radio dj's which happened to woes the crowd last night. It is a very simple show but worth to watch:)


I start from here at the surau


Sa'adah has a lot to choose from (toys of course)

Tradisional musical perfomance

Wooo...as usual!

However, I ended up here for a very late dinner.

Politically prepared.

Salam, good day. If you happen to read today's Brunei Times sports headline regarding football teams jersey, you will know this is one interesting story to share. Me myself have never been donning my favourite team jersey for over than 5 or 6 years, because I do respect our religious scholars fatwa not to promote liquor brands or any symbols of other religion. The same story has been highlighted again today, but this time I would be able to freely donning 'my team' jersey following a better sponsorship deal (with no religion sensitivity) they've signed this year and kicked out their previous sponsor (which is forbidden for muslim to promote). So, this is going to be the talk of town, as if the followers of the respective teams is willing not to wear their respective team jersey or to wear their team jersey and break the rules?

Love the busy hours.

(L-R): Ali Aji, Aziz Juned (State Mufti), me and Tajuddin Manggong.
Salam, good day. The head is spinning all day! This morning I went to KB for HM's get-together ceremony with the rakyat and residence of Belait District. It was not an enjoyable 120km journey to KB due to the style our driver drove his car, too much braking! I admit, it is too much! Later in the afternoon I went to my workplace updating everything and it is yet to be completed. Whilst this evening I was attending a state banquet (for uniform personnels) at Istana Nurul Iman. Now its time to get a good rest and the head is still thinking of more assignment to come despite I have to deal with three pc at my workplace. Meaning that the first half of this year was really a nightmare to me but I enjoyed those busy busy busy hours though. Allahumma Ya Allah, bless me with excellent health:)
