Sumbangsih Mulia...

Darn! I know I should've just opened my fish and chip stall above a monsoon drain by the roadside in Beribi Auto City. Pehin Goh would've taken pity on me and given me a FREE stall in his new multi million dollar complex. From BB:
Unlicensed roadside hawkers can now retire their flimsy makeshift stands for good, as they have been invited to relocate to proper premises at no cost.

In a bid to realise His Majesty's aspiration, Pehin Dato Goh King Chin has put forward a generous contribution the Sumbangsih Mulia, which is one of the most modem SMEs located at Beribi Industrial Estate, carrying a price tag of $2.4 million.

The plight of unlicenced hawkers and those in need of a place to sell their wares was a hot topic in the media in the past year. Many of those displaced by the demolition of the Tambing wet market, for example, said that they could not find or afford to rent a place elsewhere.

"I am a citizen of Brunei Darussalam, and this project is my contribution to Bruneian society and the government," said Pehin Goh. "SMEs are very important to the country's economy, and I want to do my part in aiding these struggling businesses," he said.

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...
