Instagram is a great creative field for talented people.
Instagramers.com helps you to discover, sometimes unkown, surprising users. People addicted to Instagram, telling about their lives, revealing their passions and sharing Instagram tips.
Wandi wrote me long time ago. He told me he was interested in setting up a new Instagramers Fan group in a distant land called Brunei. I was very surprised and looked for more information on this country and checked his stream. Amazing and different pics from an exotic place. Wandi launched @brunika. It was the beginning of a long friendship.
Let´s discover @WandiRajali today!
He was born in 1982 in a small peaceful country of Brunei Darussalam , Asia which is situated on the northwestern edge of the island of Borneo, an island which is also a part of Indonesia and Malaysia.
“Life is an a Adventure. Photography is used to capture those precious moments in life and Instagram is the medium to share those moments with the rest of the world,” he says.
He loves to travel especially back-packing trips. His last back-packing trip was in September – October 2012 to the Thailand islands of Surat Thani, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Phi Phi, Krabi and Phuket.
As I told in the introduction, he is also known as the co-founder of @brunika , the Brunei Darussalam’s Instagramers community. Their mission and purpose is to unite all of their local Brunei instagramers under 1 community and together, put Brunei Darussalam on the world map. They are a 4 people team. “We work as a team and each one of us has a different roles and responsibility in @brunika. Our community motto is “One Love, One Community” says Wandi.
On 23 February 2013, in conjunction with celebrating their Brunei Darussalam’s 29th National Day 2013, @brunika conducted their first 2013 Instagram competition with a Yellow and Black themed photos, reflecting the colors of the Brunei flag using hash tag ” #kuninghitam2013 ” to celebrate and honor their history and heritage through Instagram.
“In 2012, we has collaborated with 2 big companies in Brunei, the Royal Brunei Airlines (The National Carrier of Brunei Darussalam) and DST Communication (Mobile Communication Services)” A new way to support their Instagramers Activities.
