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

  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

... 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...
