The Happenings

Selamat Hari Raya to my Muslim friends and readers

So how have your Hari Raya been so far? What I truly grateful when it comes to Hari Raya is the easiness to roam around on the road because of the less traffic congestion. It kinda save me more minutes to spend time in my room and catch up some good quality rest *lol* Every year, Hari Raya has been a subdued feeling and perhaps one reason is that my family is not in Brunei and this is the second or the third year running that they have not been in Brunei for Hari Raya.

You will be surprised how many open houses I have been so far and today is Day 3. Well, let’s just say I planned to make two visits today so that would be a total of 3 so far. This has nothing to do with my Hari Raya mood but more of taking time off and recovering from my lack of sleep ever since Ramadhan. Hence I’m sorry if I couldn’t attend some of the open house invitations but I do plan to make impromptu visits after my Singapore trip in September ๐Ÿ˜€

This week I’m craving for more movies. I have already watched 3 movies earlier this week and there are few coming out tomorrow – Premium Rush for one – and I will be catching more in Singapore *can’t wait* and of course, looking forward to spend some time with family in Singapore though my siblings will be due back this weekend.

Make sure you drive carefully on the road. There were a few accidents on the first day of Raya. This was taken along Mumong bypass.

Ok, this picture made my day last night when Jeon whatsapp me this greetings and man, Maya looks so so so adorable and I feel like pinching her cheeks right now ๐Ÿ˜€

This was taken during the first day of Raya and I was playing with my phone, editing this photo and here’s the result. Hideous *haha*

What are your thoughts on this?

This became a talking point when I posted this on instagram. This was also shared on my peers’ social network and it drew a very mixed response. I personally think it’s a no-no to have Hari Raya envelope using the image of our currency notes. First thing, I don’t think it’s legally accepted and I’m pretty sure the relevant agency won’t even approved such print. I just hope those who are recipients of these envelopes don’t simply throw these around or lying on the floor. I’m probably more concerned about that aspect as to the idea that it would drive younger generations to be materialistic. I heard you can buy them at SKH Supermarket Airport Mall. I’m not sure if they have ran out of it.

I caught up with my buddies from Kuching – Patrick the dentist and Faustina the pharmacist. It was a great catch up session and hope to see you guys in Kuching one day ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you, Rozana, for hosting Open House year by year. I realised I’ve never failed to visit Rozana’s every year ๐Ÿ˜€

Are you guys ready for bFit challenge? Check out the poster for more details.

When there’s a will, there’s a way and they are back!!!

My friend got hold of these DVDs and CDs this morning and I’m surprised that they are making a comeback.. well, in a discrete manner. Few months ago, the municipal board played their role in combating piracy by revoking the licences of vendors who broke the law by selling pirated DVDs, VCDs and CDs. However, rumours have been spreading that they are now accessible at a popular place in Gadong and the picture above proves that they are back in business.. but for how long??

On Sunday, 01 Syawal 1433/19 August 2012, the Brunei Student Society in Melbourne (BSSMelb), friends and family celebrated Hari Raya Aidilfitri together at the home of Awang Muhamad Fakhrul Anwar Bin Haji Abdul Wahab and his family in Melbourne, Australia.

The open house started at 12pm onwards with guests receiving a warm welcome by Awang Fakhrul’s family. Guests were then treated to a variety of kueh-mueh such as tapak kuda, kueh mor and many more. Satay goreng, nasi briyani and soto were also served and reminiscent of a traditional Hari Raya menu. Other guests thoroughly enjoyed our local Bruneian cuisine, trying a little bit of everything that was served.

The afternoon culminated with a video recording by all guests wishing everyone back home a ‘Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri Maaf Zahir Batin’.

BSSMelb aims to continue its commitment to the Bruneian community in Melbourne, especially to bring a bit of home to Bruneian students and families living overseas. BSSMelb will endeavour to maintain its relationship with all fellow Bruneians and to share the Bruneian culture with Melbournians in the hope of expanding the Brunei-Melbourne community.

Loads of tourists in Brunei lately. One reason could be their visit to the Istana Open House which is a popular hit among tourists.

Now that Euro 2012 is over, Panini Group has brought in Hello Kitty.. For sure, Cuterabbit would love this ๐Ÿ˜€

Be careful when you play with fireworks, peeps!!!

It’s happening tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€
