Brunei's Beauty Queen Pageant

In the 1950s and 1960s, Brunei still have beauty queen pageants. In those days, I was told that the contestants did not wear bikinis or swimming suits but the much more modest baju kebaya. But even then those were the days. I don't know who these winners were. It would be interesting if they could tell us how it was like in those days.

The lady in the middle looks like my grandaunt- Azizah Marsal. I remember being told, as a kid, that she was once a Miss Brunei but I didn't take it seriously because I didn't really think Brunei would have such competition. Hehe.

Guess, it is true then :)
my mum was once a ratu kebaya in the 60s. That is why my dad married her as he had fallen head over hills on her. anyway mr BR good picture ;-)9

Apparently the contests were held in SOAS hall and at the PGGMB hall. I love the 60s! There is so much character!
I like the beauty of Brunei I have many friends there.
