    Pictorial: A Day in the Life of a Bruneian


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BruneiTweet collected these photos from some of his Twitter followers across Brunei. 'The pictures showed variety in food, diversity in activity, what people experienced throughout their working and academic day, outdoor activity and recreation, time spent with family and friends, and of course, just some of the many sights Bruneians enjoy on a day to day basis,' he said.

    On Wednesday, 15th September 2010 I received a tweet from @cnnireport, inviting me to participate in the iReport Global Challenge. The idea of the challenge is to share with the rest of the world snap shots of what life looks from our corner of the world. Brilliant!


    I own and operate a website which tells the stories of people who live in, or used to live in Brunei. My idea? To help the world discover and rediscover this place they call the Abode of Peace, through the stories of the people.


    So you can imagine what a thrill it was to receive the invite by @cnnireport! I then went on to invite Bruneian tweeters to tweet photographs of things they experienced, with the intention of sharing with you this pictorial, A Day in the Life of a Bruneian.


    After about 9 hours, over 80 pictures were tweeted through by over 20 Bruneian tweeters. Primarily, the pictures were from Brunei, but Bruneian tweeters from Singapore, Australia and the United Kingdom also took part.


    In general, the pictures represented but a cross-sectional snap-shot into what a Day in the Life of a Bruneian looks like, and the intention is to showcase Brunei from people's point of view.


    This first set of pictures were tweeted through from @4mywong, @brusurf, @cheltyl, @emmagoodegg, @hanee504, @infinite_looper, @izadmajid, @izamryan, @jadesimian and @maurina.


    (Check out the iReport pt 2 and pt 3 for more pictures.)


    Anyone planning a visit would need at least a good two weeks to truly experience our culture, nature and greenery, sights and sounds of the four different districts, food, outdoor adventure, and hospitality; a transit through or 'stop-over' in Brunei just won't do!


    So, come along on a journey with me...to discover and rediscover this place they call the Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures through pictures of the people who experience the Abode of Peace, Brunei Darussalam.


    Big Love!
