Chop Jing Chew est. 1946

Chop Jing Chew is an institution among Bruneians particularly those raised in or living in the Brunei/Muara district. It kinda reminds me of the tv-series Cheers except it isn't a pub. But the atmosphere's the same...

You see familiar faces every week...

The waiters however busy, will always find time to chit chat with you. Maybe this is because they're fascinated with the camera gear that we always bring with us...

So that we can exchange information and learn new tricks and techniques in photography...

But at the end of the morning, everyone has their fill of roti kuning kawin, teh tarik, zima kway teow, and those hot buns straight out of the oven heheh!

  1. Visited Jing Chew two years ago when I came home to visit my family from Aussie. My dad said they make the best egg tart and you have to be there at the right time to get your hands on them. Unfortunately we were only able to get two... and had to share between four....tells you how popular the egg tarts are...

    I had roti kawin - i thought it was the best roti in the world...

    Read your restaurant reviews. A lot of the restaurants I had never heard of or been too... but they looked great, will definitely keep in mind to visit your blog again before I visit Brunei again...

  2. You got that right chief...

    "Where everybody knows your name~"

    That place is starting to grow on me.

    I wonder a few months down the line, when you walk into Jing Chew, all the patrons would shout... "Reeda! Hey!"

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...
