Rediscover Brunei Darussalam through the eyes of the People

Thursday, 18 November 2010 22:18

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 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 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.


Here's a screen shot...

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

Dear Technorati,

Greetings. This is the fella behind @BruneiTweet. Today I registered my site at your site, and let me get straight to the point. I am hoping we can be friends...if possible, 'special' friends. Oh, you know what I mean. First, you told me you want to 'claim' my site, and that you want me to put up the code word F53QAVDFG9BE up for everyone to see. So there. F53QAVDFG9BE. I guess now we are officially an item.

What? You want to send over a few Robots to check out my site first? Robots? Hmm. Okay I guess. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine...but listen, you need to know I am in this for the long haul...I don't do 'casual' or one-offs. I will give you all the space you need to grow and be yourself, and perhaps the same can be extended to me. The word on the street is that you're kind of like a celebrity in the social media scene, and that if I am seen with you, I get special...privileges. I mean, I have seen some of my friends chilling with you, e.g. Anak BruneiBrunei ResourcesJayden Sia,, maybe one day we could chill out too.

Tell you what, as a token of my friendship, I'll even add a picture of you to let my friends know we're trying to make things work. I hope your Robots find what they want, and bring back a good word to you.

Looking forward to your response.



p.s. Readers, if you have no idea what this post was about, click on the picture-link and meet Technorati for yourselves. =)

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.
