Happy 64th Birthday Your Majesty

July 15, 2010

Today is the 64th birthday of His Majesty The Sultan of Brunei. Our beloved ruler and a caring monarch. I sincerely think that His Majesty is a far-sighted ruler with his many visions, all for the goodness and welfare of Brunei’s future.

His Majesty has been talking about renewable energy, food security, poverty, housing, environmental issues, regional stability, Islamic banking and all the issuance of Sukuks or Islamic bonds to Brunei’s own Halal brand which hopefully will be considered by the OIC as the global Halal benchmark. I personally like the Heart of Borneo project and I do hope that Brunei will be included in the Coral Triangle.

Some facts about His Majesty:

  • The Supreme Executive Authority in Brunei Darussalam
  • As the Prime Minister and Minister of Defence and Minister of Finance
  • Is the 29th Ruler of Brunei Darussalam where His Majesty’s family has been ruling the country for the last six centuries!
  • Installed as the Crown Prince in 1961 at the age of 15
  • Became a Sultan on 5 October 1967 at the age of 21
  • Crowned as the 29th Sultan And yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam on 1 August 1968 at the age of 22
  • Plays Polo, Squash and Badminton
  • A qualified pilot (for both airplanes and helicopters)
