We interrupt blogging to feature #OurBrunei

Recently, the local twitter community have been trying to promote Brunei by trending #OurBrunei through the medium of one of the famous social media around: Twitter. I would have done this post earlier, but due to it being a big online local event, I thought I should let it settle down first before posting any of the entries, I thought would be a fun fact for the rest of the community and the world. Here are several I can share with you all =^_^= enjoy!
