The highlight of the show will be a Grand Finale by the massed bands of all participants combined to perform a specially arranged musical score with a fireworks display which will make show an unforgettable experience.
To build up the excitement for the upcoming show, they eventually made some sort of "roadshow preview" to the public in all the 4 districts within the country;
Brunei Muara District
- Old Customs Building Jalan McArthur Bandar Seri Begawan
- Premises of the Tutong District Civic Centre
- The Tudong Saji Market Place Kuala Belait
- Premises of Bumiputera Complex Bangar Town
We went to the one at the capital (Bandar Seri Begawan) and below are some photos from the event;
Performance from Pakistan;
From the host country, Brunei;
And last but not least from the "Bolehland" - I mean, Malaysia;
I got some video captured using my mobile phone - HTC Wildfire, the video is in 3GP mode so the quality is not that great - plus I'm pretty sucks with this video thingy, so don't complain....
We will go to the actual event on June 1, 2010 and will upload some photos or maybe videos from the event later...
Eventually I have to borrow the powerful long zoom camera of Canon SX30IS from my good friend Billy Wong specifically for this event....
Stay tuned to Shewsbury Land...
