Kampong Ayer Rides...

Update (Jan 21 2006): It looks like we made headlines with our outing! Read all about it here and here!

This morning's outing was definitely a BLAST! The "all-boys" nature of our outings was given a refreshing change with the presence of two lovely ladies (one of whom was da missus who kindly agreed to video the sharpshooters in action heheh *muaaahs*).

What started out as a 3 hour outing ended up being a 4 hour guided tour (by our intrepid guide no less!) of Kampong Ayer and its surrounding areas. I had been on a tour of the area aboard the Tanjung Bekarang, but at the time, was too busy attending to the visiting VVIP to take in the sights.

Today, it was perfect! Thank you to Bruneian, our excellent guide, fellow sharpshooters, Mr What to do, and our lady companions, and to the crew of Roda Impian Charters, you guys ROCK! More pics to come!

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...
