The 2007 Brunei Open Kicks Off (or is it Tees Off?)





I never really did understand the thrill in whacking a small ball some distance with a club and going after it to whack it some more, and finally getting it into a hole in the middle of nowhere. I still don't get the game of golf, but I'm a tiny minority among the millions if not billions of golfers and golfing-fans out there.

Anyway, if I did in fact take up the game, I don't think I'd be anywhere near winning the really handsome prize of US$300,000.00 for the Brunei Open which starts today. I don't really know much about golf and who the big contenders are, but here's wishing them all the best in the tournament and may the best whacker get the most balls in the holes with the least possible number of whacks!

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...
