Maziah makes history

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

Historical moment for Maziah

Wooww!!! Just wow!!!! Last night was a historic moment for Brunei Darussalam as Maziah Mahusin becomes the first female Bruneian to participate in the Olympics. Though this is considered as a big hurdle to make the cut, Brunei’s participation was already a huge bonus itself. Who would have thought our 19 year old will be representing Brunei in track and field?

The name Maziah has been echoed through various source of medium and perhaps the most obvious medium is through social media. She has been grabbing headlines in the newspaper and she was also interviewed by BruneiTweet. Though there are three representatives from Brunei Darussalam, Maziah’s presence has been taking the limelight and perhaps the historical moment for Brunei as she becomes the first Brunei olympian.

It was also announced a few days before their departure that she will be Brunei’s flag bearer for the athletes parade during the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. How awesome is that?? I can tell you that there were a lot of Bruneians who actually stayed up to witness the Brunei march and it was pretty evident as my instagram and Twitter feeds were mentioning her presence on TV.

I’m a proud Bruneian and it was a honour to witness the historic moment that lasted 10 seconds which overwhelmed the disappointing opening ceremony (my take 6/10) and let’s hope we can catch the Brunei athletes in action.

She had the opportunity to meet up with Olympic champion Usain Bolt.. Awesome!!!

Reasons for congestion yesterday

It wasn’t just pay day yesterday but there was also an extra income for those in the government sector known as Elaun Sara Hidup (ESH) or in English, cost of living allowance and I tell you that the traffic congestion was pretty terrible to begin with especially in Gadong and Kiulap area.

There was also an accident at the major roundabout which even cause a bigger congestion. With the quick showers, pay-day and the accident, it was a bad idea to be on the road in the first place. Even petrol stations were pretty packed and that’s normally the case before Hari Raya *lol*

Oh yeah, a word of advice though.. Do not leave your belongings in your car. One car was reported broken in during Terawih prayers and the other happened at Gadong pasar malam at broad day light. So be mindful and aware of your belongings. It’s already desperation measures for these culprits.

It was quite a long queue and I suspected it was due to the accident at the roundabout. Image courtesy of Rafis.

I posted this on my instagram and it created a few commotions through the messages because some were judging them on how they should have spent on their extra monies. This was taken at DeeJay where the crowd was mostly targeting the SIII. It’s rumoured that the price will drop by Monday. So it’s worth the wait!!

Even billionaire Bruce Wayne gonna check if he received his ESH *lol*
