Perrier Anyone?

My full review of the Lamb Shank Briyani @ Sheraton as heard @ The Jenny M Show on Kristal FM this morning:

  • It was HUGE! Big serve perfect for hearty appetites!
  • The lamb was tender and juicy.
  • The sauce was great, just nice and not too spicy. It was served on the side which was good so you can use as much or as little as you like.
  • I loved the acar! Very refreshing n tangy and goes very well with the meat (the yellow stuff was mango? If it was, nice twist, me likey).
  • The eggs were the way I like em with my briyani, hard-boiled and deep fried.
  • The rice, I'm not sure if it was basmathi rice but it felt a bit heavy and slightly oily. Taste-wise, it was nyamannn though!
  • One tiny complaint I have though... The pappadums were not drained properly and still had some oil on them, but they were crispy so I close one eye lah...
  • Overall, a very substantial and satisfying meal served along with Sheraton's signature first class service!
My Rating: Two thumbs up from me! If you haven't, book NOW cos the promo ends on 15th Dec!

Tune in to Kristal FM tomorrow at 11.30am when I'll be giving my review of Casino Royale :)

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!

The House That Jack Built...

I really enjoyed reading Jack's post on Brunei businesses going bust. Absolutely agree that its not all gloom and doom and its just a matter of time before the economy starts pumping again with all those projects slated for the 9th RKN.

My only concern is this, what do we do before then? Aside from jostling for position with arms (and mouths) wide-open, ready for the giant JPKE to award those "mega-projects"?

Anyway, thats boring stuff. I was more excited by the suggestion that Brunei become a retirement village for the rich (and famous?). I like that idea, and I think it can work! Not only as retirement village but also as a residential base for executives from multi-national companies, it would be ideal. With all ASEAN capitals within a short flying distance, these executives could telecommute daily and fly to and from meetings as and when.

In return, they would get a safe, tax-free, and clean environment to bring up their families.

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...
