The "WOW" Starts Now!

Congratulations to one of my key figures in ICT development in Brunei Darussalam on his well-deserved appointment.

I attended a launching ceremony of the Microsoft office in Brunei. HRH the Crown Prince was the guest of honour. During the ceremony, HRH was presented with a spiffy, mouth-watering Lamborghini notebook. I bet many in the audience, including your's truly, wished they were at the receiving end at that particular moment.

There was also a demo on Windows Vista, Microsoft's update to the aging Windows XP operating system. All I saw was the bells and whistles. I guess I'd need a deeper technical explanation of all its new features in order to convince me to upgrade. I just hope its not a Windows Millennium type of release... nuff sed.


  1. Nice 3D effect in the last pic!!!

  2. lina: thats wasnt deliberate and now that you mention it, I like the effect too heheh!

    fadi: wow jua! heheh

  3. good event I heard but the organisers forgot to invite AiTi
    :( ooopppssss.

  4. Microsoft Vista... I'm planning on getting my Macbook Pro ;-)

  5. Good looking certainly but watch out the resources it requires and not forgetting the drivers thingy.

    But then again I will vouch for the Mac if looks are the X factors that you're eyeing for ...

  6. VN: woops thats a big boo boo! I'll make sure to let them know about this oversight :)

    rozi: wow! a macbook pro!! I want one too!!

    moglie: vista takes on many of the features which were found in mac OS for some time. whats new?

  7. moglie - OS X does more than look good. Trust me :D

    Rozi, AnakBrunei - I've been using the MacBook Pro for sometime now. Best 4k I've ever spent in my life. Buy it! I believe QQ e-store has a better deal

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.
