DST has gathered yet another batch of local eateries and businesses to bring life to its Hari Raya celebration at the Jerudong International School (JIS) earlier today.

Throughout the school’s Art Centre, these eateries were given booths for them to decorate and showcase their delicacies, while at the same time do their networking with guests who came from different business backgrounds.

Included in this year’s batch of eateries were Tasconi’s Pizza Brunei, Belluno Café, I Say Yatta, Kedai Kopi BN, Little Gourmet, Rumah Gelato, and many more.

In line with DST’s theme “Raya in a city” this year, guests were also treated to a view of Bandar Seri Begawan, replicated in the venue through the use of props and decoratives, with ornaments and a live performance arranged to spice up the event further.

At one corner of the venue, guests were also given the chance to enjoy DST’s 360 SMILECAM, with art-boards picturing some scenery that can be found around the capital.

Among notable guests to the event include the Minister of Finance II Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Paduka Dr Hj Mohd Amin Liew, Second Minister of Defence Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Lailaraja Major General (rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Hj Awang Halbi Hj Mohd Yussof, and the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports Yang Berhormat Major General (rtd) Dato Paduka Seri Hj Aminuddin Ihsan Pehin Orang Kaya Saiful Mulok Dato Seri Paduka Dr Hj Abidin.
