9th January 2009, Friday – Brunei Darussalam’s Consumer Fair Part 3 is held from 8th to 11th January 2009 at Plenary Hall and Multipurpose Hall of the International Conventions Center, Berakas. The fair was officially opened by the Guest of Honour, Yang Dimuliakan Pehin Orang Kaya Dewa Pahlawan Dato Paduka Awang Haji Dani bin Haji Ibrahim, Deputy Minister of Home Affairs.

I had the opportunity to visit the fair on the afternoon of the first day, that is, on 8th January 2009, Thursday. Luckily, the official opening ceremony was held in the afternoon (about 2.00 p.m). So, I was able to take some photos of the opening event (from the perspective of myself as the visitor to the fair).
