im transfering all my coins from a chocolate aluminium can into this oneIts common to receive souvenir [or luckily souvenirS] from friends who went outside the country during holiday.... nda basar pun damit.. sizes and how costly it is doesn't matter here.. its d FEELING of excitement that matters, when u know you received something from them... and from there also you will feel being appreciated as a friend.. hehe nda ja? siuk nyamu mun kna bagi barang ani.. [sama mcm knk2 kna bagi "angpau" when they knew its only a dollar in it. Just as mentioned by maurina in her blog... when you received a letter/postcard from someone though it sounds classic/traditional.. but its fun.
What i received this week:
i. brooch from Thailand [MrsKaryawan] .. ada g orang atu bjanji kn mbagi batik kn Ummi kannn hehe [from KL]

ii. Keyholder from Thailand [colleague]
iii. Carved 'Tabung Buluh' from KK [friend]

i remember when i had tabung buluh during my childhood, you know the beige n light yellowish colour.. usually in the old days, this tabung will be hung and nailed on the wall or tiang inside the house... you have to break it from the bottom if you want to take out the whole coins/money inside it and the tabung buluh will be [lets just say] expired hehe...

Went to Pulau Kuraman today with my collagues [some said its stateless, some said it belongs to Labuan. According to the local we had conversation with, it is actually a private island, mainly indigenous people of the Penans/Punan, the population is about 700 people, majority fisherman]. it was SUPER DUPER SIOOKKK!!! [make sure you can swim, because it will limits your excitement if you don't, but its ok, you still have the life jacket] and i am extremely EXHAUSTED now.. so more hardcore pics will be uploaded soon [kalau ku rajin, ngaleh mrusah bh, palau ku sudah ni hhehe].*The trip cost B$65.00/head, a minimum of 8 people per trip.

*Pulau Kuraman: 45 minutes from Empire Hotel.

Diamonds are Girls Bestfriend??

0 comments

I dont know i love diamonds or not, but i see alot of beautiful diamonds in jewellery stores (and of course thinking of having one one day hehe), magazines and etc. But there are HUGE conflicts of its origins and how the diamonds are extracted (politically).Ejat.. remember our lecturer Dr. Kalolo? He's from Sierra Leone kan. I have seen the Blood Diamond movie (Leonardo DICaprio) based on true stories of the diamond war in Africa( forgot the title) , and the Blood Diamonds documentary showed in History Channel recently. Hmmm... even the civil war was very very recent, its peak by the late 90s and ended 2001... woohooo... when we were here at peace and them? ksiiiaaannnn eehhh.. war, sexual slavery, child labour, hand and legs amputation, JUST because of diamonds sja tu! You can see from Youtube, and Google yourself on Blood Diamonds. And below are taken from Real Diamond Facts.Fact #1: In the past 15 years, an estimated 500,000 Angolans, 50,000 people in Sierra Leone, and nearly 4 million people in the DRC have died from civil wars funded through the sale of conflict diamonds.

Fact #2: A recent study found 46% of miners in Angola are under the age of 16, with many of the children exploited for little or no pay because of war, poverty, and the absence of education.

Fact #3: 300,000 carats of diamonds annually are currently being mined with slave labor in the rebel-held regions in Ivory Coast and sold to fund violent conflicts. These diamonds are being smuggled through neighboring countries to international markets.
Fact #4: Sierra Leone is ranked the world's poorest country by the United Nations Human Development Index, with poverty in diamond mining areas such as the Kono District particularly striking. The Kono District has produced billions of dollars worth of diamonds.

Fact #5:Although the Democratic Republic of Congo produces more than $2B of diamonds annually, 90% of its population of 60 million lives in abject poverty. The diamond capital, Mbjui Mayi, has no clean water, poor roads, and minimal electricity.

Fact #6: The vast majority of the 1.4 million artisanal diamond diggers across five African countries live in poverty, making less than one dollar a day.
Fact #7: The use of child labor for cutting and polishing is extremely common in India, where children suffer from dangerous conditions, overcrowding, and malnutrition. In many areas, one out of ten workers polishing a diamond is a child due to minimal government oversight.
Fact #8: FBI reports and a Washington Post investigation have linked Al Qaeda money-laundering efforts to the rough diamond trade in Sierra Leone.

Fact #9: Ninety years of environmental neglect in Angolan diamond mining have devastated large tracts of land, poisoned local water, and forced indigenous populations to relocate.

Fact #10:After diamonds were discovered, the San Bushmen were forcibly evicted from their ancestral land in Botswana's Central Kalahari Game Reserve's land they have lived on for thousands of years. The Bushmen have faced torture, severe and routine harassments, and the complete destruction of their water supplies.

Kenali Negara Kitani~Taman Peranginan Kg Parit

0 comments


Taman Peranginan Kg Parit is located in Mukim Pengkalan Batu, Kg Pengkalan Batu. Im so sure that many of the population in Brunei are not aware where this place exactly. Just like me who just knew where Kg Padnunok in Tutong is. Mukim Pengkalan Batu is just few kilometers from Limbang, [about less than 10minutes ride from Taman Parit to Brunei/Limbang Immigration by car], to give another clue you will pass by Kg Mulaut and Kg Masin if you are from Jerudong or Tutong [or through Kg Katimahar and Kg Panchor Murai from Tutong], and you will cruise along Kg Bengkurong Masin from Bandar Seri Begawan. And if you are from Lumapas/Sg Kebun, you will be crossing Kg Junjongan, Limau Manis and Kg Wasan and Kg Batu Ampar. Some of the villages i mentioned might be not so popular among the youngsters especially who grew up in Bandar area.

Taman Peranginan Kg Parit is not so popular as it was before. It has undergone deteriorating age for almost all of the facilities there. Only the pondoks are maintained, many new concrete rubbish bins been installed everywhere, many of the basic playground equipments are removed. But thanks to the authorities for keeping the place CLEAN. And now there is the new Multi-Purpose Hall / Dewan Serbaguna at the very corner of the Taman [you can see these similar buildings built in many other Kampongs].
For those who experienced Campings in this place might know where exactly Taman Peranginan Kg Parit is. It is a famous spot for Campings for some association such as Police Cadet, The Girl Guides and Scouts Associations. Majlis beramah mesra bersama rakyat also been held here few years ago.
This is a good and safe place for relaxing,  picnics with your family, jogging and etc [tpi aku nda jua jogging dcni hehe, jauh2 jua tempat lain mbuang minyak, al-maklum nda ramai orang wah ytah kurg motivasi kn kemari :p].
 





 Soon in July [just found this on the net], Brunei Darussalam is given an honour to host the 14th ASEAN Farmers Week in the year 2008 and the event will be held back to back with Brunei “Pesta Buah-Buahan dan Agri-Makanan 2008” or Fruits and Agri-Food Fair 2008 and simultaneously the launching of the ASEAN GAP. This time the event will be held at Taman Peranginan Kg Parit from 10th-14th July 2008. Ramai-ramai la mengunjungi ke pesta ini nanti [wah promosi aku ah].

7 Rapids Weight Loss Tips

Rapid weight loss happens when you burn fat and cleanse toxins out of your body. You can do that several ways. Here are a few of them.

1. Use of a cleanse. Did you know you have at least seven or eight pounds of waste stored in your body? A cleanse works by removing toxins and waste from your body. For the quickest weight loss consider liquid cleanses.

2. Eat more often, but eat smaller portions. This will help you body metabolize the meal and not have the excess amount of fat which a larger meal often does.

3. Eat more protein. This will help your metabolism and burn fat more quickly. It will also help you build muscle.

4. Cut out soda pop. Drink 8 glasses of water everyday instead. Doing this one thing can really aid rapid weight loss by flushing toxins and helping build muscle.

5. Gradually begin to work out. The temptation is to start lifting weights and jogging everyday. Your body is probably not ready for this. Consult your physician before beginning any life changing work out routine.

6. Here is a killer for many people. You need to cut way back or eliminate alcohol. It is rich in sugar and carbohydrates and it actually aids in your body storing fat.

7. One last thing is to change it up a little. This includes your diet and your workout routine. Rapid weight loss is more effective when you stick with it. Starting and stopping diet and exercise is hard on your system.

Being consistent is good not only for rapid weight loss, but long term weight loss as well.
