The Viral Experiment
“Hey check this out, look how many shares it has reached”
I think I must’ve sent this to the co-writer of Brublahblah (BBB) when our post “Things People Say When They Hear You’re From Brunei” was shared (1700++ shares) beyond expectation. The comments and shares came flooding in.
In 2014, I started the website BBB with a local ThoughtCatalog (TC) writer. I found it amazing that a local writer could reach such a broad audience, their writings have reached thousands on TC to an international audience. I wondered whether it could actually work in a local context.
Jamit anak Lasah: Teraja Longhouse Head
Story by Nurhamiza Haji Roslan
Photography by Faiq Airudin
Jamit anak Lasah remembers coming to Teraja when he was only a little boy. His father had brought him along with his other family members as well as friends from Marudi in Sarawak.
As Jamit tried to recall all that happened during the migration, he paused for awhile and sat still. His hooded eyes appeared to be looking into space but it was evident they were looking at scenes of his past, that were replaying in his mind.

“Progressive is building on the past while thinking about the future. And I think that’s what we all should think about.” Wise words coming from Faiq Airudin, a 28 year old that shoots ‘still’ and ‘video’ who believes there is always time to grow. When we asked him to look into his crystal ball to share some insight on what he thinks the creative arts industry, film and photography in Brunei would be like in the next twenty to thirty years – he answered graciously; he believes in 2035, we as Bruneians will have a greater sense of value for each other in terms of an artist’s craft whether it’s in design, fashion or pottery because highly skilled people will be more readily available; we’ll know how to better incorporate all these things into our community and will be able to recognise their ingenuity as an integral cog that makes life that much easier…if you wanna hear more from him come pick up a copy of our latest Progresif Issue, which dives into the world of ‘creativity’ and why it’s an important part of life @faiqairudin#thatsprogresif #progresifmagazine
