With travel restrictions still in place amid the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the public opt to spend their holiday and family time taking ‘staycation’ and other homestay programmes in the country.

However, staycation is no longer the only option during long school breaks as Datastream Digital Sdn Bhd (DST) officially announced its exclusive partnership with Sparks Co Sdn Bhd for ‘DST Winter Wonders’.

The event will be held on December 23-27 and December 30 – January 3 from 2.30pm to 10pm.

The 10-day family-oriented winter-themed holiday celebration will feature a wide variety of food and beverages, fun carnival games, and musical performances, in conjunction with Brunei December Festival 2020.

The partnership was revealed during a press conference at DST Headquarters in Jalan Tungku
Link yesterday.

Deputy Permanent Secretary (Tourism) at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT) Wardi bin Haji Mohammad Ali was the guest of honour.
