As in the previous week, the Tutong District Mukim and Village Consultative Councils also took part in the Bandarku Ceria programme.

For students from the Institute Brunei Technical Education, IBTE, the Bandarku Ceria programme was a valuable initiative that enabled them to showcase their products. It also helped to train the students in marketing their products and services.

Popia Basah or Fresh Spring Rolls were among the food items popular among the public. In a unique marketing strategy, the entrepreneur, Awang Rozimi Mohamad sold his product by walking around the capital to attract customers.

The activities held during the Bandar ku Ceria programme can attract the interest of not only adults but also children. Most of the visitors to the programme said that it allows them to be with their families during the weekend.
