Bandar spruced up for royal birthday
By H Bat

Workers have been busy constructing ornate arches to mark the 60th birthday celebration of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, at Jalan Sultan in the capital.

With less than three weeks to go before the big event, the municipal authorities in Bandar Seri Begawan are stepping up preparations for the celebrations, just like other relevant authorities in the country. - Borneo Bulletin (20th June 2006)
