Me Old Stomping Ground...



Work took me on a stroll down memory lane today. It was here many, many moons ago that I first met the woman whom I would fall in love with and marry. Being there brought back many, many fond memories of friendship, teamwork, bonding, of laughter, tears, excitement, fun and joy, and most importantly of young love which blossomed into a blessed union of two soul-mates...

  2. Hahaha! Awu ah the old burger stand! Am gonna post a pic of that today just for the heck of it!

    Yeah its quite sad to see the state of the building now... pretty run-down. The canteen however is much improved as its been refurbished.

    Business & Finance School has moved to Gadong so the whole building is now E&E and Radio & TV Repair.

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!

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...
