Jubli Perak Hari Kebangsaan
Tomorrow is a big day here in Brunei - it's the 25th National Day celebrations. Preparations have been ongoing for weeks and weeks, and the whole country is decorated - at every roundabout, every street corner, every lamppost there is a signpost or a big flag. Most cars are sporting mini-flags as well, we are off school of course and everybody are well and truly geared up for tomorrow.
The day will be celebrated with a festival and a theme that recollects 25 years of achievements since independence from Britain on 1 Jan 1984. The Sultan will host the Asian leaders at his 1788-room palace.
There will be a big parade and celebration tomorrow morning at the Stadium - read more about it all here.
