Greetings readers! This music video is nearly a year old, but I watched it for the first time yesterday while trying to figure out how social we are. Watch out for Putri NorizahHans AnwarFakhrul Razi and others representing at the 1.50 minute mark.

The video was part of a project by Starbucks and (RED) where people from all over the world coordinated to sing "All You Need is Love" at the same time on 7th December 2009 at 1.30pm GMT. 

"In that one breathtaking moment, musicians from 156 countries played "All You Need is Love" together...In just one year in partnership with (RED)™, Starbucks has generated money equivalent to more than 7 million days of medicine to help those living with HIV in Africa." ~ Starbucks Love Project

 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain

Greetings Readers! Check out and have a listen to this recently released single by Projectunes’ very own Aziz Harun. (click here for non-Flash browsers)

 

Peace and Harmony

Words by Aziz Harun and Rahim Harun

Are you going to lie to the world again?

Saying the war has just end?

Behind those doors and those people

You say to me

To end this war we just need peace and harmony

We can save lives times a million

But what we’re doing kills a billion

Create a new civil-eyes-ation

With this action we shall

 

Chorus:

Sing out all the melodies

Humm the harmonies

Everybody can do this is easy

To change the world

All we need is peace and harmony

 

Our new generation takes society

One by one unnecessarily

All the ethnic groups are a race

But I...

I still stand here in my place

 

Bridge:

You never know, you never know what will happen

Will they stop lovin’

Send this message out to everyone in need

Cause all we need to end this war is peace and harmony   

 

This is Aziz's cover of Song for a Friend by Jason Mraz. Enjoy more of Aziz on Youtube.

 

I. Am. Impressed.

About the Editor

new about me profI am a born and bred Bruneian who lived and worked in Australia for over 10 years. I am now based in Brunei. Having spent time away from Brunei, I have learnt that, to know a country is to know the people. 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.

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 before. Join me on this project, a project 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.

You may know me by my online moniker, @BruneiTweet. I created BruneiTweet in 2009, and currently (October 2016), I have over 30,000 followers. I am passionate about community, and use social media to connect with people - both on and offline.

I have an MBA, a keen interest in business-development and marketing, and I am a three-time TEDx speaker. I believe in the power of social media and collaboration. I have worked alongside corporate organisations on various community projects. Some highlights from my journey to date: In 2011, I co-organised Twestival Brunei to raise awareness and funds for Brunei’s Child Development Centre. That year I also organised Convergence, Brunei’s first youth led leadership forum. In 2012, I co-organised Movember to raise awareness on men's health issues. In 2013, I participated at various forums including Brunei's National Environment Conference and the ASEAN Social Media Exchange in Thailand. In 2014, I was selected to represent Brunei at the Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Programme. In 2015, I was involved as a panel moderator in an International Women's Day event, and was invited to speak at the Green Leaders Eco-Camp in Brunei about using social media with purpose.
 
But enough about me.
