Rediscover Brunei Darussalam through the eyes of the People
aMaZeUs – Design Our Prius
Calling all creative and talented individuals!
From the British High Commission:
This competition to design new livery for the British High Commission’s hybrid car contains the “funding dilemma” faced by governments all round the world when they seek to support and inspire researchers and designers, and to harness and focus their talents, without constricting them. At the British High Commission we have our own ideas, and a requirement that the winning design should provide a fitting “frame” for the address of our new website www.gov.uk/world/brunei. At the same time, we have great respect for the creative powers of Bruneians, and we want to keep the parameters of our competition wide enough to include all the domestic talent “out there”. Anyone who has seen the current livery of our hybrid vehicle, which was designed by students at ISB, will know that we are an open-minded organisation!
So we are providing the following pointers (but these themes should not be considered exhaustive or prescriptive).
Our over-arching theme is 'Innovation and Research'.
We want our car to be read as a tribute to Brunei’s growing Knowledge Economy, and the fact that, in Britain, the Sultanate has a natural partner in that endeavour. (Current Prius design as shown below)

Greetings Readers. Back in February, I was invited to meet Ambassador David Lee Carden, the United States Ambassador to ASEAN. Rano and a couple of others from the newspapers were there as well. We had about an hour's worth of dialogue with the Ambassador; I wish we had more time! He spoke about his journey and role, about food security, the impact of the depletion of natural resources, the importance of water, animal welfare, the significance of the youth, agriculture, trade, the economy, education, etc.
What I really appreciated was the fact that throughout the session, no question was off-limits. The session was fast-paced, frank, thorough and thoughtful. To get a sense of the dialogue, check out this link to Storify; Ambassador David (@USMission2ASEAN) took and responded to questions via Twitter a couple of days prior including the following.
