Masjid...

I received a lovely email from a young (I assume heheh) Bruneian studying abroad giving her comments and suggestions on the Visit Brunei 2008 Blogger Project. Thought I'd share it:
Assalammualaikum,

Hey cool! ^_^ Thanks. no problem. I'll spread it around to everyone i know in Manchester and beyond. Good luck! we're having another visit brunei? wow. i'm.. amazed. what else do we have to offer that we didn't have in 2001?

Talk to the tourism board and get your shutter friends to collaborate with them if you're serious about visit brunei.

Best way for this 'visit brunei' to work is to create a hype. Online and offline. Oh! make souvenirs too!. ^_^ That'd be cool. Brunei souvenirs are replicated from the ones in Malaysia so that's kinda boring for tourists.

Good luck. ^_^

  2. Yes, would be happy to contribute. BTW, I was reading Muhibbah Jan/Feb 2007 this morning. Saw a few nice photos from Tourism Board but all of them done by non-Bruneian shutterbugs. I feel disappointed coz I know they are a few talented Bruneian photographers around. Why not use Bruneian photographers to promote Brunei? I hope VB2008 blog will have a real impact on what Bruneians can do to promote tourism.

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.

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!
