Street Photography Brunei

There is nothing more fulfilling than going out on the streets and capturing normal ordinary folks doing normal everyday stuff... To me, that's what street photography's all about...

Anakbrunei, ada my face jua in the video rupanya. By coincident I was thinking of doing a slide show of places in Seria/KB but cannot think of what software to use and how to do it.

Your work never fail to amaze me!!! Very original indeed. Keep it up.

bro husini: I was searching high and low for a suitable software to do this as well. In the end, it was in front of me all along. The humble windows movie maker which is built-into windows xp SP2 is perfect for a photo slide show! Try it bro :)

da missus: Two words... You're MY INSPIRATION!

Great stuff bro. My fav's the moody shot of the 2 Indian men in the coffee shop(?) with their shadows cast on the tiled wall behind them.

Thanks bro for the pointers. I've given it my first test and it worked fine. Now I have a project for the weekend, if I can wait that long.

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...
