Berhati-hati di jalan raya musim raya ani...





Taken this afternoon along the Brunei-Tutong highway near Jerudong... It looked like a self-accident. It was raining heavily and the road was slippery... Please take care while driving especially during this festive month...

Update (30/10/06): The Borneo Bulletin today carried the story of the accident. Inalillahi wa inalillahi rajiun... Takziah to the family of the young lady who was killed in the horrific crash... Al faaatihah...

  2. The pictures you took were even more horrific than the one at the front page of the bulletin.

    'Berhati-hati di jalan raya' not just in musim raya, but also in non-musim raya. One of my seniors died last year through self accident in the rain as well. Her husband collided into a thin tree, but the impact was so great that she fell out of the car (according to witnesses) and the husband's car (an old Ford model with tough body) was severely wrecked. That taught me not to drive fast during rainy seasons.

The House That Jack Built...

I really enjoyed reading Jack's post on Brunei businesses going bust. Absolutely agree that its not all gloom and doom and its just a matter of time before the economy starts pumping again with all those projects slated for the 9th RKN.

My only concern is this, what do we do before then? Aside from jostling for position with arms (and mouths) wide-open, ready for the giant JPKE to award those "mega-projects"?

Anyway, thats boring stuff. I was more excited by the suggestion that Brunei become a retirement village for the rich (and famous?). I like that idea, and I think it can work! Not only as retirement village but also as a residential base for executives from multi-national companies, it would be ideal. With all ASEAN capitals within a short flying distance, these executives could telecommute daily and fly to and from meetings as and when.

In return, they would get a safe, tax-free, and clean environment to bring up their families.
