Birthday celebration mood

June 23, 2008

One of the beautiful arches being erected in the capital, Bandar Seri Begawan

This is one of the arches being erected in the capital in time for the 62nd birthday celebration of His Majesty The Sultan of Brunei. The Sultan’s birthday is by the way on the 15 of July. More recently, the construction of the decorations for the celebrations has started earlier. Gone were the days when one could see contractors putting up the final touches just on the eve of the celebrations. Good!

A close up on the sponsor of the arch

Now a close up on the sign in the arch’s centre said that Masyarakat Tiong Hua Daerah Brunei Muara or the Chinese Association in the Brunei Muara District, who presented the arch. What interests me is the design at the side, the ayer muleh and the Chinese own pattern in the brown background. Any similarity? I don’t know if you notice the relationships in design between the Malay and the Chinese.
