Rediscover Brunei Darussalam through the eyes of the People
Editor's Note: I got to catch up with my mate Abdul a few weeks ago - one of the stars of the Oppan Brunei Style music video. I also managed to catch a quick interview (over SMS) with him before he left back to the UK to continue on with his studies.
What do you do?
I am a student at Keele University, UK taking a degree in politics.
Describe yourself in a few words.
I would have to say I am a very huggable person (due to the unexpected fatness) hahahaha! Plus, I am easy to get along with.
What do you miss about Brunei when you are away?
I miss my family for sure...and getting chauffeured around hahahahahah!!
What was the inspiration behind the Oppan Brunei Style video?
The inspiration behind it actually came from a friend of mine - Nasir Jaafar who's the producer / director and mastermind behind all this...who himself is half korean. And if Sabah & Kuala Lumpur were able to make their own Oppan version why can't Brunei? Hahaha.
What does it mean to you to be Bruneian?
To be a Bruneian is knowing and remembering your roots, especially when studying overseas as we are all "anak Brunei" (no pun intended). Hahahaha!
Seri Mulia Sarjana School on its 20th Anniversary is proud to present Peter Pan The Musical a school production by arrangement with Samuel French and International Theatre and Music (IT&M London) on the 25th of November 2012 at 7:45pm. The musical will be staged at the Jerudong Park Ampitheatre and ticket prices are $15, $35 and $100 available at all Seri Mulia Sarjana School Front Counters.
A well-known and much appreciated musical, Peter Pan the Musical is presented by professional and amateur productions worldwide and is popular for their characters - Peter Pan, Wendy, John, Michael, Captain Hook and his sidekick Smee, Tiger Lily, the Lost Boys, pirates and of course TinkerBell.
Peter Pan the Musical will take us to Neverland where children are exposed to endless imagination and creativity, two things that Seri Mulia Sarjana School persistently instills amongst its students as they serve as foundations of numerous possibilities.
This production is being staged by Seri Mulia Sarjana School as commemorative of the school’s 20th Anniversary Celebration. This is also an avenue for the school to expose its students to the performing arts and most importantly to involve the whole school in a community outreach for the benefit of Pengiran Muda Mahkota Al-Muhtadee Billah Fund for Orphans. Proceeds from the Peter Pan copyright will also go to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
Join them in this event and be a part of our community outreach.
