Rediscover Brunei Darussalam through the eyes of the People

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.

What do you think?

Greetings Readers! Part of my daily routine includes scrolling through my Social Media Twitter list to keep myself aligned with what's hot and what's not (anymore) in this ever progressive world we live in. Of course I do not click on every tweeted link (there are loads), but today I came across one which read "What's better than Facebook, MySpace, iTunes and YouTube?" Anticipating finding out about the next big thing in social media, I clicked the link which led me to two words, and the following four pictures.

Sometimes, the Web just won't do.

One of the best things about movies...are the pre-show trailers. Throughout most trailers, there is always some guy talking through the trailer...in a deep and raspy voice, full of conviction...always talking about opposing elements: "In a World...where there is fire and ice...night and day...the rich and the poor...there are the Heroes, and then, there are the Villains..." Ahhhh yes, the Villains.
 
On 8th November 2010, Orchid Row blogged about The Villainess in All of Us, which led to a colourful tweet dialogue between Izam Ryan, Orchid Row and myself about villains...more specifically, super villains. Ever since my previous post about how We could be Heroes, I have been wanting to do something similar about Villains. So, I sent out this tweet on 12th November 2010: 

BruneiTweetTweeps, if U could be a SUPER-villain, who would you be & why. Tweet back by 9pm to be part of a #FUN post on projekbrunei.com 8)

 
Interestingly, there were more tweet responses about Villains than there were for Heroes. Perhaps, Mojo Jojo was on to something when he sang Everybody wants to Rule the World (click here if your browser does not support Flash).
 
 
Here are your responses...

Hey Readers! My plea to Technorati worked!

And one of their staff even left a comment and a wink.

Cool.

Here's a screen shot...

Maybe I should rethink my stance on the whole casual thing.

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.
