Fireball in Jangsak...



There was a huge jam along jalan gadong in the jangsak area last night. Apparently there was a spectacular burning car incident. Fortunately nothing happened to the driver who was able to get out in time.

The JAM (which happened around the time people were returning from the mosque after terawih prayers) was caused by the number of people who STOPPED at the road shoulder to witness the spectacle. Top entertainment for the crowd was watching how our fire and rescue boys doused the fire with their hoses.

The damaged car is not visible in these shots but the billowing smoke can be seen from the car, which is blocked by a tree which decided to grow right in the line of vision from my window...

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.
