The Information Department of Brunei Darussalam's Prime Minister's Office has released a list of public holidays for 2010 in the Surat Keliling Jabatan Perdana Menteri Bil 8/2009 Negara Brunei Darussalam Hari-Hari Kelepasan Awam 2010.

The aforementioned list, signed by the Permanent Secretary to the Prime Minister's Office, Awang Sa Bali Bin Abas, leaves the dates of the various Muslim public holidays (Prophet Muhammad's Birthday, 1st Day of Ramadhan, Nuzul Al-Quraan, Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Hari Raya Aidil Adha, and 1st Day of Muharram) as "Subject to change", as usual (2008-09-02).

It would appear that the dates used as initial estimates are based on the Saudi Calendar, and not the official MABIMS calendar used to calculate the Muslim public holidays in Brunei Darussalam. The result is that we expect many of the aforementioned Muslim holidays dates to be revised (to the next day) in the coming months.
