Golden Smile...

I think by now, just about every Bruneian around the world who's got access to the internet has read the article in the Daily Telegraph. Nevermind the contents of the article (lets leave that to the lawyers and the law), the pictures were awesome! I must say, HRH has aged very well indeed. When I saw the pictures, one word came to mind, "Regal". Tell ya what... if ever there was a need for a poster boy for "royalty", HRH would be a prime candidate...

Voting has closed for JPG Magazine Issue 8. My thanks to those who took the time to actually sign up to JPG Mag in order to vote for my pic. Terima kasih daun kesum.

Incidentally, I got an email saying I've been listed in VFXY Photos, the prestigious photoblog syndication community. VFXY stands for quality in visual arts. To that end, VFXY tries to syndicate photoblogs that meet a certain quality standard. To be VFXY approved means to have already reached a high level of quality. For this reason, very few blogs (of the thousands available) make it into the participants’ list.

As you can imagine, I'm well chuffed!

Extract of the email:
Hi Muhammad,

Thanks for your submission to VFXY Photos.

Sorry for the delay. We have a lot of applications and to ensure quality of listed photoblogs we manually check them one by one.

Thanks for support and linking to us!

I've proudly added your photoblog. Thank you. Great photos!!!

If you have any question please feel free to contact me.

End note: I did a search on VFXY and sadly no other Bruneian photoblogs are listed yet. I assume no one's submitted yet, so c'mon G'Ferro, Mizi, Zadm, Kantalensa, Bruneian, Bald, Pixels-n-Grains, Puzian, Cat Eye, Sifu, and I'm sure there are others, submit your awesome sites lah and lets put Bruneian photobloggers on the map!


  1. The girls in my family and I were talking about good looking people in general one time (crappy girl talk involving only one topic: good looking boys and men), and somehow in one way or another, HRH came up, and we agreed that he's the most good looking one among a few royals.

    By the way, congrats for being listed in VFXY photoblog community. Your pics are very good.

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.

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 Do bear with me for the next couple of weeks while I figure out the ins and outs of wordpress hehe.
