Datu Albi Dakula Julkarnain, chairman of the Council of Royal Datus, Sultanate of Sulu, and overall in-charge of the 1st National Conference of Royal Princesses of Sulu has announced that all systems go  for the opening of the conference on Monday, November 17, at the Garden Orchid Hotel, this city.

Julkarnain said that preceding the opening ceremonies at the Lobby of the Subanen Hall of the hotel is an exhibit to be held with a ceremonial cutting of ribbon to be led by Dayang-Dayang (Princess) Sitti Djalia Turabin Hataman, Anak Mindanao Partylist Representative in Congress with Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar, himself and other dignitaries who will witness the opening of the Exhibits.

The exhibits will showcase some relics of the Sultanate which are so ancient worthy to be shown to Zamboanga’s public for the first time in the Sultanate’s hundred years history. Artist Rameer Tawasil is the chair of the Exhibits.

Monday’s conference of the Royal Ladies of the Realm is one historic occasion to be held in this city which had never happened before, and perhaps, will not happen again in another 100 years as noted by one serious observer, with joyful enthusiasm and admiration of such a conference to take place in this city, with its new branding of “Asia’s Latin City”. But to the muslims, Zamboanga is one and only “noble city” in the whole Philippines, the observer said.
