Brunei Times's take on blogging in Brunei

- The Brunei Times (22nd August, 2006)

Some very lucky bloggers got a mention in the new English newspaper, The Brunei Times, in an article written by Amirul Azuan. The few blogs mentioned came from a myriad of genres ranging from the serious to the more trivial.

The more important thing is that the newspaper is sending an important message, in the words of a friend: “the Times (correctly) considers local bloggers to be friendly allies in their competition with the BB.”

The BB, or the Borneo Bulletin, which until recently has been the sole English newspaper in Brunei, has, in the past voiced out open contempt towards the Bruneian blogging scene.


  • Dear Maurina,

    Im kinda interested to read the article mentioned in Brunei Time’s take on blogging in Brunei.

    However, today is 25th, and the news dated 22nd. Any idea where I can get the archive?


  • Hi Saiful, I am still waiting for the newspaper article to be hosted in .pdf form in the GVO file hosting website. However, in the mean time, I’m emailing you the article. :) Sorry! Brunei Times does not have an online archive as it seems. Anyway, please check your inbox!
