THE GOLDEN WARISAN BRUNEI DARUSSALAM VOL.2

Do you know in Brunei we used to have a festival called ‘Berjanawari’?  Or that the Brunei word for great-great-great grandparents is the same as the action describing shaking your head?  Or that Brunei’s largest export used to be derived from mangrove trees?  Or that ‘Hua Hui’ a gambling game was widely played in Brunei?  Or the many facts that you have never known about Brunei?

This is the second compilation of articles of the history of many aspects of Brunei ranging from when Brunei was a maritime empire in the region to today.  No subject matter is too small or too big for the author as long as it is about Brunei.

Excerpt :

People were attracted to Hua Hui.  Somehow the thinking was, this was not pure gambling.  You have to think about it and therefore this game required skills and not chance alone to determine whether you would win or not.

This new game was different as it required a certain amount of skill and knowledge, but it still involved gambling.

Hua Hui was particularly popular in Brunei in the 1950s and 1960s.  Even during festive seasons or Hari Besar.
