The Apple iPhone...

Hmmm... so Apple announced the new iPhone at CES. It looks set to be THE converged communications device for 2007. Apple has redefined the concept of convergence with this product. It all seems too good to be true... And I've been burnt quite a few times with first generation devices, so I won't be getting one anytime soon. It'd be interesting also to see what the other players like SE, Nokia, and Dopod have up their sleeves for 2007. Now, if only they'd figure out a way for the phone to make coffee...

Tina: Menacing clouds eh? Hmmm may have been deliberate on my part. I can't recall now ;)

Shai: Its very difficult to put a price on art isn't it? You dont want to over-price but at the same time, you also dont want to under-value your work... so how now brown cow? heheh

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.

... 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...
