  • Description

    THE 51ST BIRTHDAY OF THE SULTAN OF BRUNEI, SIR OMAR ALI SAIFUDDIN, WAS CELEBRATED IN THE TINY PROTECTORATE THIS WEEKEND WHEN THE WHOLE TERRITORY WAS ON A TWO-DAY HOLIDAY.

    CELEBRATIONS WENT ON FOR A WHOLE WEEK LAST WEEK, SINCE 21 IS A SIGNIFICANT AGE IN THE TRADITIONS OF THE PEOPLE OF BRUNEI.

    THE CENTRE OF THE CEREMONIES WAS PARADE YESTERDAY THROUGH BRUNEI TOWN, AT WHICH THE SULTAN TOOK THE SALUTE AS BANDS, TROOPS AND YOUTH ORGANISATIONS MARCHED PAST.

    LAST YEAR, THE SULTAN WAS UNABLE TO TAKE PART IN BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS BECAUSE OF ILL HEALTH, BUT THIS YEAR IS ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL THE CELEBRATIONS.
