Sept 16 in history

On his day in 1997, I was bestowed the Ahli Setia Darjah Kinabalu (ASDK), the third highest State Award, from the Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Haji Sakaran Dandai. I was unable to attend the ceremony then at Istana Kota Kinabalu because I was in London.

On this day in 2006, I was back in Kota Kinabalu and was invited to receive the award from Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Haji Ahmadshah Abdullah.

Hi Aki,

How I wish that Sarawak to have their holiday on 16th Sept. Everyone is talking about it but we just do not understand why we should celebrate 31st August.
