Sumbangsih Mulia Visited




Through a series of circumstances, I found myself visiting the Sumbangsih Mulia SME center yesterday, partly to collect my prize for the MOKAM quiz, and partly to satisfy my own curiosity about the center. The building is situated on an open lot of land between ROBCO and Premier Motors (the Ford dealership) in Beribi Auto City. It looks like an oversized house with no rooms, just open space inside. Behind it is what looks like a super-sized garage.

The ground floor of the air-conditioned interior houses over 20 small stalls offering anything from small trinkets to woven handicrafts, to traditional textiles, to local cakes and biscuits, while the upper floor had around 4 or 5 mini shops/cubicles which offered mostly traditional woven cloth and dressmaking services.

The super-sized garage is actually where the food-stalls are located. I think there were over 40 stalls offering all kinds of food from soto to satay to nasi biryani. There was no fish and chip stall which kinda reminded me of what I said in this post. I did not have time to try out the food there but will surely return to try it out soon. For those who have not visited the center, why not drop by and check out the goodies on sale and sample the food while you're there?

Thanks once again to HKH and MOKAM for the lovely gift. Little Nina really enjoyed the prawn puffs!

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...
