From the First ASEAN Youth Entrepreneurs Seminar & Exposition Brunei

This is my second time visiting Brunei. The last time was to speak at Think Big Innovate 2012. And few days ago I’m back to Brunei to speak about entrepreneurship to ASEAN young entrepreneurs on the first ASEAN Youth Entrepreneurs Seminar and Exposition.

I thought this time I’m going to focus on one message: about being perfect. I always say that I’m an imperfectionist. I start small and quick, far from perfect, because I believe perfection is a journey. So, this ‘lean startup’ spirit is the one that I want to spread in the forum. Speaking with me was Muzamir Mustafa and Azura Liyana, both entrepreneurs from Malaysia.

From the networking event, I met a lot of young and passionate people from across ASEAN country.

I met some Bruneian university students who want to start their own business with fund from an angel investor: their dads :D I asked them, “You know that you’re lucky to be in the University for free, right?” They giggle, “We know!”

I also met Gee from Philippines that really passionate to beat all odds and finally will start his own fashion line

I also spend time to stroll around Brunei, enjoying the view from their magnificent Masjids

Going to Bandar Seri Begawan’s very clean, neat and beautiful market where a fish seller said I’m beautiful like a celebrity and a grandma sang Malay poetry :D

Even I met a food seller lady who recognize me because I was on Brunei tv the night before :))

As always, I really enjoy my trip to Brunei. Wearing Baju Kurung, Brunei traditional dress, bring a sense of a Malay Queen in me :)) I feel a lot like a woman :D

Last but not least, thanks a lot Huda, who’s been helping me taking my pictures, and taking me shopping around Brunei, I owe you a lot, keep in touch :D

It’s a long way for me, from an awkward girl who didn’t know how to do a presentation, to someone who has to present something in English in front of regional/international audience. I hope what I’ve been trying to say was heard and could be the inspiration for you to dream, create and act – living the life you always wanted!

Ps: all pictures were taken with my new camera Samsung NX300 – and I’ve started a #picslosophy hashtag to capture human interest photos every day!
