Click image to enter the official Royal Wedding website

Rich culture and tradition continue to shower the royal wedding ceremonials at the Majlis Istiadat Berbedak Pengantin Diraja of Her Royal Highness Princess Hjh Hafizah Sururul Bulqiah and Yang Mulia PgHj Muhd Ruzaini Pg Dr Hj Mohd. Yakub in the Indera Buana Throne Hall of Istana Nurul Iman yesterday evening.

Majlis Istiadat Berbedak, or Royal Powdering Ceremony, is a ceremonial function where members of the royal family and family members of the groom "bless" the royal couple by applying seven-coloured powdered paste and scented oils onto the palms of the couple.

Upon the arrival of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam at the InderaBuana Throne Hall with Her Majesty Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha, four candles or DianEmpat were lit followed by the placing of the two-piece yellow cushion known as Kasur Namat between the Dian Empat.

The ceremony began with Pehin Jawatan Luar Pekerma Raja Dato Seri Utama Dr Ustaz Hj Mohd Zaininforming Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Lela Cheteria Sahibun Najabah Pengiran Anak Hj Abdul Aziz that the Istiadat Berbedak Pengantin Diraja ceremony was set to begin. YAM Pengiran Lela Cheteria SahibunNajabah Pengiran Anak Hj Abdul Aziz then duly conveyed the message to His Majesty.

Following the consent of the monarch, the royal bride was escorted into the Throne Hall by Her Royal Highness Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Hjh Zariah and Her Royal Highness Princess Hjh Masnawith the wives of appointed state dignitaries.

The anticipated arrival of the royal bride was accompanied by a grand entourage made up of 40 Sinipitbearers, or spearmen, along with three Dayang-Dayang holding Payung or umbrella, Kaskol or royal betel caddy wrapped with cloth embroidered with golden thread and Kain Pendukungan.

In the entourage were also seven Pahawai Perempuan or chosen ladies bearing a Puan, a Tarian, aKabok and Panastan, a Kiap, a Chupun, a Pasigupan and a Kaskol.

On His Majesty's approval to begin the ceremony, a Dikir Marhaban was performed to cue the start of the ceremony and prompting all attendees to stand up.

The ceremony was initiated by His Majesty placing the powdered paste and scented oil onto the palm of the bride. This was followed by Her Majesty and other members of the royal family as well as the parents of the groom.

Outside the Indera Buana Throne Hall, a 17-gun salute went off to signal the start of the ceremony.

After the royal bride's exit from the hall, it was the groom, Pg Hj Muhd Ruzaini's turn to take the court to begin the Istiadat Berbedak for the groom.

The groom was escorted by his younger brother, Ak Muhd Tarmizi Pg Dr Hj Mohd Yakub, along with a grand entourage into the Throne Hall.

Pg Hj Muhd Ruzaini was dressed immaculately in traditional Malay wedding attire comprising a gilded two-piece baju Melayu.

Seated on the royal wedding dais, Pg Hj Muhd Ruzaini received "blessings" from His Majesty, followed by Her Majesty with the application of the powdered paste and sprinkling of scented oil onto his palm.

The rest of the royal family followed suit in hierarchical order, with the groom's parents having the lasthonour.

Following the Majlis Istiadat Berbedak, the royal family and invited guests proceeded to the IstiadatBerjaga-Jaga and religious-orientated performances.

The Istiadat Berjaga-Jaga is an event that calls for the finer observances of royal protocol where guests are treated to a range of traditional games and Malay poetry reading. Text by Low Leng May and Rabiatul Kamit of The Brunei Times.

My first Royal Wedding coverage

This was my first coverage of the Royal Wedding and I have skipped a few actually because I was still recovering from fatigue and I had an irritating dry cough which has been itching my throat for the past two days. Anyway, back to the Royal Wedding - last night was the Royal Powdering ceremony that took place at Indera Buana Throne Hall of Istana Nurul Iman.

The Royal Powdering Ceremony lasted an hour or so for both the bride and the groom. I saw tons of familiar faces inside the hall and all I could do is gave a small wave and take photos of them *lol* Today will be the Nikah ceremony which will take place at the Masjid Sultan Omar 'Ali Saifuddien at noon. I shall be there again for coverage.

As for now, enjoy the pictures taken from last night Royal Berbedak ceremony. The images are in chronogolical order :D

Gangnam Fever?

4x4 car owners of Mitsubishi will also be able catch the rally superstar when he comes to Brunei next week.

The event is slated for next Friday 28th September at GHK Motors showroom where a press conference will be held followed by meet-the-fan session for autograph purposes.

Now, the other ride with Psy

Psy famously known for his "horsey ride" dance when viral since July. Image by Mike Coppola.

It's never easy to be a YouTube sensation. A few hours ago, South Korean pop star Park Jae-Sang also known as Psy hit a huge milestone where his "Gangnam Style" video hit 200 million views on YouTube and that's with the help of topping the US iTunes chart. Amazing!!!

You can also follow him on Twitter @psy_oppa and did you know that he has already signed a contract with Justin Bieber's management agency. For you info, Justin Bieber's Baby video is closing in on 800 million views so it's still far off but man, 200 million views in just a span of three months is an amazing feat.

Here you go - Oppan Brunei Style. Click image to view video.

Speaking of Gangnam, there have been tons of parodies ever since Gangnamania is still running fever hot!! I saw the Malaysian version so far and believe it or not, Brunei has also joined the bandwagon and it was pretty hilarious too to say the least. It has raked in more than 45,000 views in just a few days which is probably the biggest gainer in terms of views within a short span of time. I can't recall the number of hits for the famous video which featured ZekZek on his apology as it was removed. Another popular video "Budi" also garnered pretty solid views but it looks like the next king of views for Brunei is "Oppan Brunei Style" video.

If you have not seen it, click here to view and there have been tons of comments praising the said video. Sometimes I do wonder if Psy can create another hilarious move to match his "horsey move" for future music videos. For now, let him enjoy his fame.

Gangnam Style topped the US iTunes chart.. Amazing!!

More UBD Convocation pictures

His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam and Chancellor of UBD and HRH Prince (Dr) Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Pro-Chancellor of UBD, with the graduates during the UBD 24th Convocation last Saturday

HIS Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam yesterday said that more research should be conducted in areas that deal with deeper understanding of social issues and public concerns.

His Majesty pointed out that research and studies must assist the nation in overcoming issues such as poverty and crimes.

In the titah at the 24th UBD Convocation, His Majesty in his capacity as the Chancellor of UniversitiBrunei Darussalam said research must be done on social issues that are "becoming more critical" to understand their causes and overcome them.

In this regard, the monarch proposed some areas of research on violation of Customs and Excise Act, Immigration Act, Drug Abuse Act, Labour Act, and smuggling of oil and rice, which His Majesty said, "seemed as if they could no longer be controlled. If there is no research, how will we know the cause? If we don't know the cause, how could we overcome it?" His Majesty queried.

The monarch also asked: "Where are the findings? Where are the results of the research and studies that we have been hearing about for the past year?"

His Majesty also emphasised the country was in need of a database of research and information. With rapid technological advancement in teaching, learning and research, it is not impossible to deal deeper into such issues, His Majesty added.

Dwelling on the strides made by UBD, His Majesty said within a short period of a year, UBD has successfully filed 10 patents that could potentially be commercialised. However, the monarch added that this success is not a fair measure of capabilities of the students and therefore stressed the importance of research.

His Majesty foresaw that the digital era will open doors to opportunities for people to seek knowledge and, in line with the nation's vision, to build a knowledge society in Brunei.

On this note, His Majesty lauded UBD's effort to establish the Academic Personnel Service Scheme, which he hoped would be realised before the end of the year.

The scheme, which caters to UBD's human resource development, will serve as a catalyst for academicians to give their best contributions in producing quality teaching and research, said the monarch.

The new scheme hopefully will attract the interests of international academicians to serve and contribute to UBD's development, His Majesty added.

While UBD's active involvement in international meetings and regional development efforts was welcomed, His Majesty told graduates not to mistake such opportunities as reasons to take the Malay Language lightly.

"I see UBD has been involved in regional development efforts by contributing to the ASEAN Community 2015 through management programmes such as training for English teachers in ASEAN countries in cooperation with the East-West Centre from the United States," His Majesty said.

"In this regard, I have only one advice, that is, do not make this initiative a platform to change or blur our national aspirations in empowering the Malay Language as our mother tongue and official language."

The monarch further urged the nation's youth to think with the vision of developed nations, and use their own language as propelling force to move forward.

"Think like a big nation would and move forward with your (own) language, not like a person without vision," His Majesty advised. Text by Low Leng May and Rasidah of The Brunei Times.

Wanna learn more about property?

These seminars are always quite popular but it doesn't happen on a regular basis. So this is the best opportunity to get hold of the coachers which is happening this week, one in KB and one in Bandar. And for your info, registration is FREE too.

I've always been keen in property but I've never really set my intentions to it. I was reading past archives of Azea Property Investment seminars and there was one quote that will encourage those interested in property - "Property investing is a "zero sum game".

There will be a seminar on 20th September Thursday at Seaview Hotel, KB and 21st September at Rizqun International Hotel, 2:30pm and 7:30pm. For reservation, call or sms 718 4963.
