Bruneian Postgraduate Symposium 2010

Greetings from the Copa Cabana Palace Hotel, Rio De Janeiro. But I am not going to write about that. I will write about last Saturday. Remember, last Saturday, I was here at this symposium.

Right here at the Brunei Gallery at London University's School of Oriental and African Studies. This is the view of the main entrance of the building.

The unflattering sideview of the Brunei Gallery which unfortunately is what you see when you drive to the building from Russel Square.

A picture is worth a thousand word. The following are several thousand words courtesy of

Last words. At first I was not sure what to expect. But I thoroughly enjoyed the symposium. After listening to the presentations by the postgraduate students (one or two were way above my intelligence level), listening to the questions that they asked, things certainly augur well for Brunei. These are our young and bright future. I wish there were more of them. I wish there was more time to sit down properly and talked about the future of Brunei together. Perhaps the next time.

Congratulations to Kathrina Haji Mohd Daud and your BPS team for the excellent arrangement of the 2010 Bruneian Postgraduate Symposium. Well Done!

Thanks to Jin Yang for the book 'Sustainable Energy: Without the Hot Air' written by David MacKay. It certainly opens one's eyes. Professor Mackay is a Cambridge University Physicist and he is the Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change. You can download the book yourself at but the printed copy (GBP 19.99) is always nice.

Dear Tuan Hj Rozan

Thank you so much for your inspiring talk in London. I am writing to find out if you would be interested to give a talk to Brunei Nature Society on the same topic or any topics of your choice? It will be great if you can share with us your knowledge here in Brunei. Please contact me if you would like to know more about the society. Thanks very much.
