Is there any information or thread started on his second wife?
He married her almost a year ago and she just had their first child, a son. I believe, that was when she was elevated to the title of 'princess', after the baby was born. There is a thread about her already around here.

I'm sorry and I don't mean to insult anyone here, but I don't see the point of having more than one wife. If I was a first wife, I'd be severely unhappy if my husband married again.

Isn't the president of the Philippines short? She's less than 5 feet tall, I think. I like her; she's got spunk and tenacity. Even at her height, she can hold her own with other heads of state. But I'm from the Philippines, so I could be partial! :p

Alfie, who is the lady sitting before HRH Nor'ichsani in Majelis Persantapan Bagi Pegawai Brunei Form, is she Amal Jeffria or Amal Nasibah ? If you don't mind I'll ask you : Are you in Ring 1, 2 or 3 because you know all the details, suppose you don't want to answer this question it's ok and thank you. Maybe someday we will "copy darat" !

I just loved the way Princess Basma of Jordan looked. I had never seen her before in a tiara. Just beautiful.

It seems Im not the only one who missed seeing the elegant Datin Faezah at the birthday festivities. I haven't seen any pictures of her in months and was looking forward to her appearance at the Sultan's birthday celebrations.

A few articles on the birthday:

Payrise in His Majesty's Service
His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam yesterday gave a special birthday gift, announcing an accelerated increment to the salaries of government servants. Borneo Bulletin


Birthday bonanza from His Majesty
Government servants especially of lower rank were treated to a special thank you gift by His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam when the benevolent ruler announced a special increment in their salaries, yesterday.

"I am grateful to note that government revenue and financial standing have improved lately. As an expression of gratitude for the contributions made by the public service, especially those at mid and lower levels, I happily announce the issuing of a special pay rise in the form of accelerated increment specifically for this year only. "For those who are currently in government service details of their salary increase will be announced though the Prime Minister's Office circular. For staff in Division Four and Five, their living cost allowance will also be increased. For those on a daily pay rate, I wish to announce that their annual increment is set to increase to a more appropriate level," Borneo Bulletin

Since her wedding almost a year ago, Azrinaz Mazhar has appeared at many public engagements (with the Sultan and/or Queen Saleha), both at home and abroad and up until a couple of weeks before she gave birth to her son. The Sultan's birthday was her first public appearance since giving birth in June.
You can find pictures in the various news threads for the Sultan, the Royal Family of Brunei, and ofcourse in the HRH Princess Azrinaz thread.

Tutong's tribute to His Majesty

Thousands thronged the field of the Tutong Community Complex to greet His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam as the district came alive in resplendent colours for the Get-Together Ceremony in conjunction with His Majesty's 60th birthday.

Hundreds of school children from the district were out in force lining up along the roads to greet His Majesty and members of the royal family.
Yesterday's get-together was the first for His Majesty in a series of events with people from all four districts.

His Majesty arrived at the helipad near the official residence of the Tutong District Officer and was greeted upon arrival by Pehin Dato Awang Hj Adanan, Minister of Home Affairs; Pehin Dato Awang Haji Dani, Deputy Minister of Home Affairs; Permanent Secretaries at the Ministry of Home Affairs; and Tutong District Officer, Awang Abdul Mutalib bin Haji Mohd Idris.

Accompanying His Majesty to the event were His Royal Highness Prince Haji Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister's Office, HRH Prince Abdul Azim, HRH Prince Abdul Malik and HRH Prince Abdul Mateen. Borneo Bulletin

Royal b'day banquet for uniformed personnel
His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam last night hosted a royal banquet in conjunction with the monarch's 60th birthday at the Istana Nurul Iman, which was attended by all uniformed personnel.

Also present were Her Majesty Raja Isteri Pg Anak Hjh Saleha, Her Royal Highness Pg Isteri Azrinaz Mazhar binti Hakim Mazhar, His Royal Highness Prince Hj Al-Muhtadee Billah the Crown Prince and Senior Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Her Royal Highness Paduka Seri Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Sarah, His Royal Highness Prince Mohamed Bolkiah and Her Royal Highness Pg Anak Isteri Pg Anak Hjh Zariah as well as other members of the royal Family.

I love the first picture, Princess Sarah has such an adorable smile; quite a few laughs being shared in some of the other pictures as well.

the two ladies in the front are the Sultan's sisters, Princess Umi Kalsum and Princess Masna. I've forgotten the name of the elder lady in the glasses. Perhaps someone else could help

Yes that's Prince Muhammad, the Sultan's brother in the middle, and next to him is his wife Princess Zariah, who is also Queen Saleha's sister.
