A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man be perfected without trials ~ Danish proverb
With myself having a winner's spirit, its time for me to share the secret of winning, and this can be found at the ThinkBIG, Innovate 2011 forum. The forum focused on technology and entrepreneurship.

The forum touched on alot of the crucial issues on support given by banking and government towards start-ups and small medium enterprises (SME). Though its more on the Brunei scenario, it does not differ much from where I come from. Various real life cases of using internet tools as as business tools were also presented with a few prominent entrepreneurs as speakers.

All in all, the forum was very enriching. I especially liked the part presented by Ann Burgraff. She's voted 'Top Start-up Mentor in Asia' within 'The Founder Institute' in 2010. Below is one of the videos she used in her presentation.
Well, that wraps up my "formal" education in Brunei. I hope it helps ignite the entrepreneurship spirit in you and to affirm you, this path has been tested and is possible.
Next post will be my eat, drink, play and joy in Brunei.
** My heart twinge at this afternoon's tragedy of the collision of a train and an oil tanker in KK, Sabah. Its total bizarre that such thing happened here .
