Pics taken at yesterday afternoon’s launching of the Learning Ladders Society, a local non-profit organisation which augments the efforts of SMARTER Brunei by focusing on the early detection and intervention of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Her Royal Highness Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Sarah consented to grace the event. Also present were the Deputy Minister of Health, members of the diplomatic corp, senior officials from government and corporate sector, and other invited guests.

Hi, Reeda! Just thought I would fill you in on the Myanmar Cyclone Nargis Relief & Fundraising meself.

If you are interested, you can go to Wardrobes Inc.’s offline store right in front of Taurean Too Kopitiam. It’ll be on from this Friday to Sunday (23/5 – 25/5), also next week’s Friday to Sunday (30/5 – 1/6). From 10AM – 9PM. 20% of Wardrobes Inc.’s sales, and part of the proceeds will go to victims of Cyclone Nargis through Myanmar Embassy.

Visit Wardrobes Inc. for more information, but I think I’ve quite covered it. ;)

Thanks, Reeda! :)
