BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
KAMPUNG Belimbing residents yesterday turned up in force to beautify the village, in time for His Majesty’s 68th birthday celebrations.
Among activities carried out during the cleaning campaign were mowing the overgrown grass along the roadside, starting from the Gerai Muafakat Sarubing to Masjid Kg Belimbing.
Some residents could be seen picking up trash, while others were cleaning the drain along the side of the road.
