Show of patriotism

People from all walks of life gathered in the capital on Saturday to celebrate Brunei’s 35th National Day with a spirit of patriotism and nationalism. The light drizzle did not dampen the enthusiasm of the participants numbering around 25,000 who had practised for several weeks to perform before thousands of spectators. As His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam arrived, the Taman Haji Sir Muda Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien was awash with a multitude of colours.
