I am born-and-bred Bruneian who grew up in Kuala Belait and went to school in Seria. I then completed college and undergraduate studies overseas, and in 2009, I completed a Masters of Business Administration with a keen interest in Marketing. Having spent time away from home outside of Brunei Darussalam, I have learnt that, to know a country is to know the people. I have learnt that to truly appreciate a new place is to see it through their eyes, to listen to their stories, to taste, smell, do and feel as they do.
I returned to Brunei in 2011 after spending 11 years living and working in Adelaide, South Australia. Before returning to Brunei, I worked as a consultant for a publicly-listed Australian company. That same year, I launched "Convergence", Brunei's first youth led leadership forum. The purpose of the event is to inspire, challenge and motivate Brunei's Next Generation.
You may know me by my Twitter profile @BruneiTweet. I rediscover Brunei through your tweets, plus I actively share and spread local news and information about events and promotions. Currently (as of July 2014), I have over 19,000 followers on Twitter.
Everyone has a Story, and this blog - Projek Brunei, features the stories, music, photography and art of locals and of people who have lived or worked in Brunei Darussalam before. Join me on this projek, a projek to discover and rediscover this country they call the Abode of Peace, the Heart of Borneo, this place they call the Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures...through the stories of the People.
