Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Brunei...




Finally made the switch to blogger beta. Turns out the customizations weren't as difficult as I thought they would be. Kinda looks the same... probably a bit better?

Highlights
  • Can add page elements easily without going into the HTML template. This is probably the biggest improvement. Final result is lebih kemas dan rapi...
  • Can control the fonts and colors from one interface (can pop-up some more heheh). There's also a useful function called shuffle colors which is good for color coordination challenged folks.
  • Labels. This is an overdue feature which does wonders for organizing one's posts.
Lowlights
  • Some scripts don't seem to work.
  • No 3 column templates to start with
  • Performance still hit-and-miss
Overall though, there's a lot to like about this new blogger and the short-comings, well they can only be fixed can't they?

  3. I cant seem to get my blogroll "updated notice", I guess its for paid accounts only. The beta is much more easier to use than the old one, especially adding html stuffs.

    mogile: Does WordPress allow you to import from Blogger?

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!

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.

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...
