To Be Honest

This post hasn't been updated in over 3 years.

Ok, my attempts at the book challenges this year (12 e-books in 2011, Unfinished Books 2011) has been absymal.

I think my total reading is still consistent with the past few years. It just seems worse this year as I had set myself actual targets, a la the book challenges, and am falling far short! (1 out of 12 e-books, 2 out of 6 “unfinished” books)

Competing with the “Official” List of Bruneian Societies (2011)

This post hasn't been updated in over 3 years.

This post was written in Aug 2011 and applicable as of then. The website of Registry of Societies was inaccessible around 2014-2015, and that was still the case as of 2018. Please read my 2019 follow-up post if you’re looking for Brunei societies and associations.
