Brunei Honours 2006

The Honours Award Ceremony by His Majesty during his 60th birthday was a solemn affair. By my calculation, this is the largest number of Datoship being awarded and I don't remember any previous group larger than this. The last one when more than 20 datoships were awarded was way back in 1987 when my father was one of the 22 DPMB recipients.

All the Cabinet Ministers datoships have now been upgraded to first class as well as 2 deputy ministers. 26 new datoships were awarded and one of the more interesting figure to receive his datoship was Pehin Kapitan China Kornia Diraja Awang Lau Ah Kok more popularly known as Mr. Hua Ho. He enjoyed the ceremony so much that he posed for photographs after receiving the datoship at the back of the queue, luckily out of sight of His Majesty who was still awarding other datoships at the dais!

On this occassion, everyone in bruneiresources.com and bruneiresources.blogspot.com would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the recent recipients of the honours bestowed by His Majesty during His Majesty's 60th Birthday Celebrations as follows (and hopefully also impart knowledge to readers who the recipients are and what honours they were upgraded from or just received):-

at least this year, the datoship didnt really increase as majority of the recepients are already datos' this and that....

those people who are expected to be datos long time ago, but didnt get it but only now they get it... so this year list is just.. "oh finally he or she gets it"....

Yeah... YDM Pehin Dato Setia Hapidz was missed out... he got Darjah Setia Negara Brunei Yang Amat Bahagia Darjah Kedua (D.S.N.B.).

Dato Paduka Hj Muslim bin Hj Burut and Dato Paduka Hj Noordin bin Mohd Yussof also missed out... they both got Darjah Seri Paduka Mahkota Brunei Yang Amat Mulia Darjah Kedua (D.P.M.B.).

But still thanks to Mr Admin for providing the updated list of Datoship.
actually the list started with just the people I know that i wanted to congratulate but then i thought why stop there and so on... anyway, everyone is now included, the datoships at least.
