Even though it’s human foosball, the celebrations on a goal was almost like any other football game.

I thought this would be the last picture of the day. I went off for lunch shortly after this, but when I saw the Stormtroopers roaming around the place, I went back to my parking space, and paid for another hour of parking just to catch em.

Youths lucky witnesses of national progress

Syed Rory Malai Hassan
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN

Friday, October 5, 2007

A LARGE segment of the Bruneian population may not have yet been born during His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s accession to the throne 40 years ago, but The Brunei Times had no trouble finding youths who can appreciate their monarch’s good work in raising the nation.

Royal Brunei Airlines employee Mohd Abd Hakim Abd Rahim feels that, as the longest-ruling working monarch in the world, His Majesty has brought about a lot of positive transformations in development for the country during his reign.

“In terms of economic development, the sultan has made the country more approachable and friendly for foreign investors which may bring about even more positive changes for the country,” he said.

Rozaimi Johari, an economics teacher from Masin Secondary School, said that over the past 30 years of his own life, there have been substantial improvements which has propelled Brunei on to the international stage.

Haryatie Mohd Antin, who reads Brunei Studies at Universiti Brunei Darussalam, said: “We are very proud to have such a caring working monarch who has successfully steered the nation’s development towards greater heights in terms of education, health, economy and welfare.”

“Our development – even though it may sometimes be misinterpreted as slow – is actually our way of practicing a safe and cautious policy,” she added.

Nizam Rahman, an IT technician from the State Store said that as a citizen of Brunei he is very proud to have such a caring monarch who looks after the welfare of his people and considers the nation close to his heart.

“If his father, the late Sultan Sir Muda Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien was known as the Modern Architect of the nation, then His Majesty should be considered as the visionary leader who has successfully brought the nation on par with other countries, on an international level,” he said.

“As a royal statesman, the sultan has introduced to the international stage a glimpse of the nation’s people.

“His management of the preparations made by his late father which he successfully expanded and made as his own is very impressive and shows that he cares quite a lot for the development and progress of his country and nation’s people.”

When death comes calling, so does Oscar the cat

PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (AP) — Oscar the cat seems to have an uncanny knack for predicting when nursing home patients are going to die, by curling up next to them during their final hours.

His accuracy, observed in 25 cases, has led the staff to call family members once he has chosen someone. It usually means the patient has less than four hours to live.

“He doesn’t make too many mistakes. He seems to understand when patients are about to die,” Dr. David Dosa said in an interview. He describes the phenomenon in a poignant essay in Thursday’s issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
