All hail the DRIVE-THROUGH...


The solution to our woes is here at last! The need to park oh so far away from the entrance and actually have to walk from parking lot to the shop may soon be over if this trend continues.

All hail the DRIVE-THROUGH. This concept is something which has been around globally for a very long time of course, but for some reason, was never adopted in Brunei. Let's see how DQ fares with it. Looking at sites like YPI and if items 3, 22, 38, and 44 on Mr BR's you know you're Bruneian post are true, then it will take off for sure.

On another unrelated note, congrats to Rano on the purchase of his Canon EOS400D from the proceeds of his winnings on Livewire heheh. Don't forget bro, the Canon 50mm 1.8 II is a must have for the discerning shutterbug!

Cool bananas...

I have always wondered why we never had drive-throughs. Ani kan kitani ani kebilangan pemalas, punggung pun indakan tehangkat. In theory this should be a hit with us here in Brunei. Where is this btw? I need to know just so that I can experience this for my self. Mun ampir rumah, bisai. It would my ultimate singgah place all the time. I seem to remember we had a "honk in"? service at McD's dulu2. I guess that didnt get off coz kitani ani pemalu kan ter honk2. And I think Citibank still has that drive through ATM machine d batu 1

I disagree with the idea of a drive through. Our urban life is privatised. We are all getting lazy. Where is the vibrance of people that an urban place should have? It is better to not have drive-throughs than to have it and become harder to lose it.

Kenali Negara Kitani

KNK or "Kenali Negara Kitani" means "Get to know your own country". Catchy title and I like it. This campaign spearheaded by Tourism Brunei aims to create an awareness among all Bruneian residents that the tourism industry has great importance as an economic activity for Brunei, and that enjoying tourism activities in the country is a worthy and interesting proposition.

Through KNK, Brunei Tourism hopes to see more locals taking time to explore and discover the local wonders, involving themselves in many sporting and leisure activities on offer, sampling regional delicacies and purchasing more local products and crafts.

Brunei Tourism's drive in promoting the KNK domestic tourism concept will encourage the public to use the services of local professional service providers to enjoy extraordinary activities and to visit "off the beaten track" attractions.

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...
