In a nutshell…
The idea for The Borneo Post SEEDS began about a year ago, first as an idea as a weekly print-publication, and then more recently as a website.

The history within these walls
“It was meant to be temporary in the first place. The ‘temporary’ became more than 40 years.” – Dr Charles Leh on Dewan Tun Abdul Razak.
