AnakBrunei Charity Calendar 2007

calendarsmall

Couple of days ago, fellow poklen and rabid blogger Ziq mentioned that he would be placing his order for my calendar. Well Ziq, its time to put your money where your mouth is!

Presenting the inaugural, exclusive anakbrunei.org Calendar 2007! It features some of my favorite works from this year. Obviously having to choose only 12 photos out of hundreds means some of my other favorites get left behind...

This glossy calendar is printed on photographic quality paper and comes in A4 size ONLY. It's printed individually so you can personalize it with a line of text of your choosing (e.g. names, special message etc) at the bottom.

How much is it you ask? Well, it's gonna cost you B$5.00 for each of these babies... WAIT! Before you start thinking its a ripoff, think about this... for every calendar sold, HALF will be donated to SMARTER Brunei - Society for the Management of Autism Related issues in Training, Education and Resources.

Pretty good value considering you will be buying an exclusive calendar (sure beats one of those half-assed free calendars that everyone will have lying around!) with twelve ORIGINAL photographic works by yours truly, AND you'd be doing your good deed for the day by donating to SMARTER Brunei.

All this for the price of a cafe latte? Nuff sed... click here to order and I will be in touch to arrange payment and delivery... even for you folks outside Brunei, we will arrange something. Anything for charity...
Note: While this is a small-scale personal project of mine, I am also looking at a larger scale, commercially printed charity calendar with the works of all the ultra talented Bruneian photobloggers out there. So all you Bruneian photobloggers, if you think this is a project you'd like to contribute to, click here to let me know!

  2. Wah, very nice lah and I think B$5.00 is nothing much for such a lovely and local calendar. Well done.

    So how to pay and how will it be delivered?

  9. Reeda, I'm thinking that perhaps I could get my bro who works at the KK tourism office to put them in their shop. So have a thought about the pricing and I'll check with him on this.
    I think you should consider doing a similar calendar with all Brunei landmarks.

  10. I'm going to order this too!

    So we email you the photos too?

  11. Nonnie: Great! How many would you like? These make great gifts by the way, and you'd be contributing to a great cause at the same time!

    I assume you're talking about the bigger photobloggers' calendar project when you ask whether to email the photos?

  12. is it possible to just use pictures you've taken? i'm not very good with camera...

    ReplyDelete
  13. lizzie: the calendar will feature 12 original works from me heheh. What you see in the pic above is what you get. So don't worry about having to send in your pics :)

  14. Hey dude, why dont u make a desktop size calender? Your photos will be a lot more bigger then 12 photos on a single A4 size paper...

    ReplyDelete
  15. Tks for the suggestion and the thought had crossed my mind dude, but I'm trying to keep this project simple and do-able from home nence the constraint.

    I will certainly consider it for the next edition, provided this edition is successful heheh! Sorry, I didnt quite hear ya... How many did you want? 10? heheheh!

  16. cool. if you want your project published in bb, let me know. more than happy to write something for you... =)

  17. lizzie: that would be AWESOME! the print media would certainly go a long way toward helping this cause! THANK YOU in advance! :)

  18. Sounds pretty cool. Can we personalize with our photos? And the title? You're printing it at home? because I don't think A4 size printing is this cheap(in photo service store), nice project, will try to contribute. =)

  19. ingsiang: Much as I would love to be able to customize the calendar with individualized photos, I won't be able to for this calendar as it is supposed to feature original works that you see in anakbrunei.org

    Perhaps for other calendar projects, I will condsider customizable photos.

    This is my personal project so yes, I am printing this at home on an inkjet printer (for as long as it holds out heheh) in order to keep costs down.

Migration Complete...

If you recall, sometime ago, I was toying with the idea of migrating to the wordpress platform. Today, that idea becomes a reality. The migration to wordpress is complete and all posts from today onwards will be at http://anakbrunei.org Do bear with me for the next couple of weeks while I figure out the ins and outs of wordpress hehe.

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...
