Kampong Kiarong

Some members of the public celebrated Hari Raya Aidiladha or feast of sacrifice by hosting an open house.

Among those who hosted such a reception was the family of Pengiran Haji Manshor bin Pengiran Haji Jaya at his residence in Kampong Kiarong.

Although not as popular as during the festive Hari Raya Aidilfitri, the feast of sacrifice helps foster closer ties among family members, friends and acquaintances. – Azlan Othman
