Jangan Pandang Langsung...

Pics are from yesterday's ceremony to announce the 5 candidates for the Princess Rashidah Young Nature Scientist Award 10 (PRYNSA 10) which took place at MIPR.



Took da missus to watch the much hyped Jangan Pandang Belakang last night... yawn... the highlight of the night was the siew mai we snacked on before the movie.

The movie somehow reminded me of old Indonesian horror flicks (like sundel bolong) where you have some bloke reading some verses from the holy book with heaps of echo added in for good measure. The plot was wafer thin, and the acting left a lot to be desired especially the female co-star who played Seri.

Perhaps I should have walked into the movie with different expectations but the fact that this film was rated "the scariest malaysian horror movie so far" did set a pretty high benchmark to start with.

The crowd that we had the honor of watching the movie with made me feel like we forgot to bring costumes and umbrellas for the rocky horror show. There was THAT much participation! Annoying yet fun at the same time.

Overall, I think the M'sian film-makers will fare better with love-stories and comedies instead of horror flicks. For those who are planning to watch it, wait for the VCD... unless of course you're seriously into that participatory audience thing which the mall cinema is famous for :)

yup the storyline was pretty straight forward and predictable. But Rosminah Sidek's (Opah) acting was a thumbs-up.

About the PRYNSA thingy, may I make some corrections? It is actually PRYNSA 10 not PRYNSA 9 and actually there were 5 finalists not 10.... Maktab Sains, my school (I was one of the teachers receving the fake cheque yesterday). I can understand the confusion... coz I was also confused with the banner. It says ......PRYNSA 10 finalists. I thought there will be 10 finalists announced... he he. BTW, u happended to have MS's pic?

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.

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...
