Yasmine1

Two weeks ago, before watching Yasmine The Movie, I shared:

'From my point of view, "Yasmine" is actually a pretty big deal in the scheme of things. I have a feeling that, consequently, we will see more Bruneian movies in the next few years.

Why do I say this? Because this movie will set a precedent, blaze the trail, and put things into motion. The Creatives will continue to emerge, and we're certainly not short on talent. Plus, Creativity begets Creativity.

Years from now, we will look back and tell our grandkids, "We were there when Yasmine premiered.." '

I watched it last night for the first time, and I stand by my words. Everyone, go watch this film. Kudos to the team!

The People's Sultan at the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy event. It must be said - this is truly amazing. Such personal, powerful, and precious moments between the Man and his People. Beautiful.

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.
