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.

This site will remain visible for archive purposes. Thank you and see you over at the new pad!

Hadrah

... In the past, hadrah was only performed during weddings, but now it is performed in open events, to greet honoured guests and more significantly to signal the arrival of His Majesty in various events...

... Brunei youths nowadays have done well in preserving the heritage and have even enhanced it. Back then, competition involved only beating of drums and chanting. But now performances are choreographed to make it more attractive and interesting...

... hadrah could be further promoted in Brunei if there is a national association of hadrah set up. "We have a national team for silat and gasing (top spinning), but not for hadrah. We cannot just rely on mukim and schools to promote the activity, it has to be done at a national level...
