Greetings Readers! I wanted to share a few pictures of the 'rainbow' cakes I ordered from Mr Baker's Bakeshop. The cakes added a lot of life to the birthday party, they were very easy on the eyes and they were yummy! Mr Baker mentioned in his Fan Page that these were the first multi-tiered rainbow cakes they had created. Take a look.

Greeting Readers! Recently I submitted a story to CrossFit and it got posted up on the Reebok CrossFit Games website. On that point, it got shared across the CrossFit Games and Asia Regional Fan Pages too (!). Here's a sneak peek.

I had just attempted 13.5. I was cooling down. And then I thought, “I think I will try doing a bar muscle-up”. Bam! On Friday 5th April 2013, I got it. My first bar muscle-up.

If you CrossFit, you would have a similar story. It may not be about a muscle-up, but we all have a CrossFit story. This is mine, a story about firsts. We all have a first story.

The first time I tried CrossFit. My first time attempting Grace. My first burpee. My first time in a Box. My first palm-rip. My first pair of Nanos. My first triple-under. The first time I watched Rich Froning Jr. The first time I fell in love with Julie Foucher. The first time I managed Fran under 10 minutes. The list of ‘firsts’ goes on.

I proudly train at Brunei’s first CrossFit affiliate – GetFit CrossFit. The CrossFit seeds were planted when founding members, Coach Rory Teo and Coach Gavin Sekhon stumbled upon it via YouTube in 2009. After digesting videos and articles about CrossFit, hours of home WODs, they went on to get their Level 1 Certification in CrossFit Perth in Australia. Soon after, the core team grew to include Coaches Gary Sekhon, Mas Idris and Haadi Samid. GetFit CrossFit held their first public session outdoors on the track-and-field grounds of University Brunei Darussalam in December 2010.

My CrossFit journey started on those very tartan tracks mid-2011. Up until that point, I considered myself a ‘healthy’ guy. I had an active lifestyle, I had gone through a ‘gym’ phase so I loosely understood what lifting weights were about, I ran every other day. It was a balmy Tuesday afternoon. My maiden WOD was a combination of air-squats, sprints, sit-ups and burpees. I do not mean to sound dramatic, but that one WOD unraveled me. “What just happened?” I was lying prone, sucking the wind and my body felt like it was on fire. I have been doing CrossFit ever since.

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.
