Reviews from other interns
-With this short video, you can see how the mother is important and what are the consequences of the bad treatment. Islam gives a big importance about the mother so do not be ashamed about her and just be proud of her.
-Concerning this video, I think it was a well ending due to the bad behavior of the son and his wife. The mother takes an important part in the life of each one that s why we can t push her or just ignore her because she took care of her children all her life
-It was interesting, a value, cannot disrespect your mother. Because she educates. But the mother shouldn’t have done that. It was really well learnt.
-Would prefer to see the difference version from different countries
-The video was Informative and animation was good.
-Its interesting. It could be real referring to the pictures showed.
Brunei’s events in 2017: Golden Jubilee.
Brunei is under the ruling of a Sultan. October 2017 marked His Majesty's 50th year anniversary on throne
I founded online a video of the whole-day event which was 5 hours long, and I cut it to 20 minutes long. The video showed how Bruneians celebrates an event in the Malay culture. In the video also, viewers get to see the infrastructure of Brunei. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CXcFhOxvPo&t=10359s
