Datsun Triple S

Almost everyone got the similarities between the two Bruneians in my previous post. On the left is Sheikh Abas, a prominent businessman and intrepid explorer. He has been on several 4x4 expeditions to China, Malaysia, and even London. I can only imagine what it feels like to arrive in London having driven all the way from Brunei and be waving our national flag in my own four wheel drive on the streets of London :)

On the right is Norhayati Abu Bakar, a prominent Bruneian woman explorer, who is about to embark on an expedition covering the African continent as well as Europe and Asia. Previously she led a team of Bruneian women climbers in conquering the 5,895-metre Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak.

So what is it that these two adventurers have in common? A larger than life personality and an infectious zest for life and what it has to offer outside of the realms of the normal and ordinary. We need more of them...

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...
