Former female staff of then Brunei Telecom Department (JTB) held a reunion at Seasons Restaurant recently.

About 70 attended the reunion. Among them were spouses of former senior military personnel and former minister, Pengiran Datin Hajah Juliana binti Pengiran Jaya Negara Pengiran Haji Abu Bakar and Datin Hajah Saidah binti Haji Mohd Said.

Tahlil and Doa were recited to remember ex-colleagues who had passed away.

Hajah Norliha binti Haji Abu Bakar read a Doa Selamat and the event continued with mingling among the participants.

Hajah Saadiah binti Haji Ghazali said the reunion was suggested by Datin Hajah Umi Kalthum binti Haji Mohd Daud, Hajah Rosnani binti Haji Abdullah and Rossenini binti Haji Tajuddin. Hajah Saadiah helped spread the word among former colleagues leading to organising of the reunion.

Hajah Saadiah, an artiste in the 80’s, was the emcee. She entertained the participants with her singing talent.
