One Night At The Stalls

This is rather late, but I thought I'd post these anyway. Though there's nothing much I could get out of this year's Gerai Perayaan held at the capital during this festive season of His Majesty The Sultan's 63rd Birthday Celebration, but the variety of food are always the main attraction for the late-night food hunters.

Getaway: Tanjong Maya

Just one of the many places in the region to find solace and connect with nature. Great fishing spot too.

Bedudun at Kg Pudak

Sometimes an assignment could turn into a weekend holiday, and that was the case of my weekend experience last Sunday, when I had the opportunity to report on the Youth Home-stay programme at the quaint little community of Kg Pudak, Mukim Kota Batu. Being away from the urbanized environment and enjoying a more simpler, traditional life, I was really having a peaceful weekend and a fun-filled time. And it's very rare to actually see in a much livelier and connected community as Kg Pudak. Read my full article here.

Breathing New Air

The band is three years old this year, and we have evolved in our style and performances so much. Now that each of us have our own commitments, we've to really juggle up time between work and practices for gigs (which have also been pretty scarce as of late).

Lights Up

I applaud His Majesty's decision to push back all events and ceremonies planned to mark His Majesty's 63rd birthday celebrations, in the wake of the Influenza A (H1N1) outbreak. It shows how caring our Monarch is for the welfare of his people. For the first time in the history of his reign, there will be no major celebrations in the capital on this year's 15th of July.

Business School Welcomes Fifth Intake

Orientation 09, The Classic Signature Hunt

The Business School has come to its fourth year this year with new students coming in to fill the vacancies left by us. After our huge graduation day a couple of months back, I thought I would never see the new faces of students enrolling this year. Fortunately, I was assigned to cover for the school's yearly orientation programme. As a fresh graduate, I had a slightly awkward feeling heading back there and felt like a stranger to them (though the current seniors still do recognize me, but I guess that's probably the last).

With the fifth intake coming in, its no surprise that familiarization and ice-breaking sessions were held on their first week. It's been a tradition for generations (in Business School years). A time to actually encourage them to open up and build the foundation of their confidence, while having a great time through it. Sure made me recall those sweet moments I've had with my fellow friends on our very first week some four years ago.

Looks like I'll be reporting on the school's activities that'll be going on for the next few months and on. It's good to be back, though no longer as the student I used to be, but as a fresh graduate with his new-found career. And I'd like to say, welcome juniors!

A fireman puts out a fire which took down a quarry building in Bunut last night. The fire reportedly started at around 8.15 PM. No one was hurt. Further investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.

The Memorial

Watched this late last night via live-feed. It was a really sad moment in entertainment history.

Let's Do Our Part

As of yesterday, there has been a total of 164 cases of H1N1 infected reported by the Ministry in our country, and that number seems to be gradually rising. Now, I am against promoting scare, but I strongly support the authorities to fight this plague that's engulfed in our beloved nation. So let's do our part in whatever we can to minimize the spreading of the virus by following the guidelines prepared by the health authorities. We can do it!

Prevention is better than cure. Apply those hand sanitizers and put on those masks. Maintain good hygiene. Boost your immune system by eating a well-balance meal rich in vitamins. Minimize social gatherings or being in crowded places. Postpone traveling overseas (unless if there are important businesses to attend to). Lastly, don't panic, always keep a positive mind, and pray.

More information and updates of H1N1 in Brunei can be obtained here.

The Proper Use of Masks During These Troubled Times

From the WHO: Proper use and disposal of masks is essential to ensure they are potentially effective and to avoid any increase in risk of transmission associated with the incorrect use of masks. The following information on correct use of masks derives from the practices in health-care settings:

• place mask carefully to cover mouth and nose and tie securely to minimise any gaps between the face and the mask
• while in use, avoid touching the mask − whenever you touch a used mask, for example when removing or washing, clean hands by washing with soap and water or using an alcohol-based handrub
• replace masks with a new clean, dry mask as soon as they become damp/humid
• do not re-use single-use masks − discard single-use masks after each use and dispose of them immediately upon removing.

Although some alternative barriers to standard medical masks are frequently used (e.g. cloth mask, scarf, paper masks, rags tied over the nose and mouth), there is insufficient information available on their effectiveness. If such alternative barriers are used, they should only be used once or, in the case of cloth masks, should be cleaned thoroughly between each use (i.e. wash with normal household detergent at normal temperature). They should be removed immediately after caring for the ill. Hands should be washed immediately after removal of the mask.
