As sure as the Sun shall rise...

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been reading some truly mind-boggling bull-crap being spewed out about our country's e-government development by several highly qualified individuals from several big IT firms.

Please lah guys, we actually need more people who will give us their honest opinions, not more lip-service. Once again I wish I could be more like my buddy Pat but I can't... So anyway, in the spirit of boot-polishing, I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and do some spewin' myself:
"In my expert opinion, as someone who has architected several seamless paradigms, we are going very well indeed, and in the right direction, given that we are synthesizing impactful functionalities, leveraging holistic relationships, empowering user-centric networks, transitioning effective paradigms, cultivating plug and play partnerships, innovating transparent architectures, optimizing killer infrastructures, maximizing efficient portals, and engineering synergistic web services."
Wow that felt so good. Try it yourself. Click here

Thank goodness you ended that sentence "from several big IT firms."

Because I am in the IT industry on the Government side, and we're doing our damnedest to materialize the e-government vision. The fruits of our labor is not apparent to the general public, but it's there, and its on course.

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.

... 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...
